THIS WEEK'S SAVING GRACE

Is Food Waste Is Costing You Money?

Did you know that Americans waste approximately 25% of their food every year?  And Americans spend a lot of money on food. Depending on the size and age of your family, the USDA estimates that you could be spending over $1200 per month on food.  The average single man or woman can spend well over $350 per month on food. How do you feel about throwing 25% of that amount - $88 to $300 - into the garbage can every month?

We Americans like to eat out a lot as well to the average tune of $238 per month. If you're leaving 25 % of your food on your plate at a restaurant, that's an additional $60 per month you're tossing into the garbage.

No matter how you look at it, that's a lot of money, money that could be going towards your retirement savings or your rainy day fund or paying off credit card bills. One hundred dollars per month saved and compounded over a period of even 20 years at a modest interest rate of 5% would amount to over $40,000. Over 30 years it grows to nearly $84,000. That's not chump change.

So how can we prevent this kind of waste? Check out 20 ways to reduce food waste. You might just find that your grocery bill has gone down, that you're eating healthier, that you're shedding pounds, that you save on your garbage bill and a lot more plusses that you never thought of just because you're no longer wasting food.

 Happy Savings.

If you're one of those people that like to shop in bulk, a better way to do it may be to shop online, avoiding the big box stores like Costco and Sam's where it's oh so easy to buy things you really don't need.  Amazon Grocery makes that easy and will save you money as well.
