Eating healthy doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.  You can make very simple healthy meals for less than a value meal at McDonald’s.

Buying meat at the market that is getting ready to expire is usually sold at a discounted price.  Buying foods like this, then freezing them allows you to use them when money is short.  Buy fresh veggies and not the steamed bags.  Make your own coffee at home instead of going to Starbucks.

Making small changes in your spending can make a huge difference over time
