Infographic illustrates grocery shopping plan to eat healthy, within budget.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2013
The folks at CreditDonkey.com have published a new guide for helping families stay healthy on a budget.
"With an increasing number of families turning to couponing as a way to save money on groceries in the tight economy, many parents worry about the nutrition of their kids and their own waistlines," says Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com, a credit card comparison and financial education website. "Often, the coupons are for processed foods or items many would consider as a snack instead of a nutritious staple. So we put together a guide on how to save money on groceries and eat healthy."
Accompanied by a colorful and fun infographic, CreditDonkey’s tips are easy to follow. They include the following:
- Plan ahead. Create a menu of meals that can be served several days during the week, such as large vegetarian meals, which are both healthy and less expensive. Be open to experiment by trying a variety of ingredients in a vegetarian lasagna and look for a recipe on a tofu-based Mexican meal.
- Be mindful of your shopping route. Driving all over town to get the "best deal" could cost you more money in the long run.
- Look for bulk bin items. Buying certain items from bulk bins are typically the most cost effective, such as grain, flour, spices, nuts, seeds, trail mix, beans, and legumes.
- Use your cash back credit card. When it comes time to pay at the grocery store, use a credit card that offers reward points or cash back. Many credit card issuers now offer rewards specifically for grocery-store purchases. When used wisely, consumers can earn cash or reward points for their routine shopping trips.
