This is National Family Meals Month and manufactures will provide extra incentives this month to purchase food products for home cooking. Additionally, this is a good time to get the grocery bills under control and start planning.

It always amazes me when I speak to random people about their dinner plans. Most of them admit to not having made any dinner plans. It seems most decision are just make prior to eating.

To make it convenient for you, Food City has laid out several inexpensive meal plans displayed in today’s sale flyer. Additionally, you will see stores having their produce and meats on sale.

Do not spend a lot of time planning your meals. Review what you have in your home first, and then along with the sale flyers match up items with coupons for added savings. Take your leftovers and prepare them for lunches or a quick meal stored in your freezer for a later date.

These simple lessons are fun for the children and they love to help cook in the kitchen. Yes, of course it can be messy but well worth it in the end.

Remember, as you save money with coupons, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money-saving plan. This is the 37th week of the year. Place $37 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $703 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
