#4. KEEP FOOD FRESH
My wife taught me this trick which will keep bags
of food fresher longer, saving time and money.
Buy a large inexpensive bag of wooden clothes pins
. Use them to clip closed all those plastic bags that food comes in
these days. You can use and reuse them in place of "ties." We have found that wooden clothes pins work much better
than plastic which often slip or break.
They are especially handy for bags of cereal, bread, vegetables, chips, dry pet food, etc. We use hundreds of them.
Before clipping, fold the top of the plastic bag several times to keep the food at its freshest.
Don't stumble around in the dark!

#5. SAVE ON PIZZA
How to always find a coupon
Tired of turkey? Ready for some hot food at a low price?
In your yellow pages may be dozens of coupons for restaurants, especially pizza. Generally the coupons are in a
separate section at the front of the yellow pages.
However, once you find a good deal with these coupons, you can always find more because everyone you know has a
phone book, and they will probably give you theirs. In addition, phone books
at phone booths have coupons which
rarely get used. You should ask the business that owns the phone booth if you can cut some out.
seen this kitchen marvel on TV
selling for as much as $19.99.
you can get the Chopper Plus for only $9.99
that's a savings of $10.00!
amazing Chopper Plus will safely chop
vegetables, onions, garlic and more
easily and without the mess.
PLUS, its FUN!
#6. CHEAP "CONVENIENCE" FOOD
While we usually recommend you avoid "instant" and "convenience" foods at the supermarket because they are a bit
expensive, they make a lot of sense when you are on the road or away from home
. While these products are not cheap,
they cost much less than eating at a restaurant. You can enjoy fresh hot, healthy food in your hotel
or guest room.
For example, by simply boiling water in a cup in a microwave you can make a variety of instant foods.
bags, "soups in a cup," instant hot breakfast cereals are easy to make. Simply add the hot water and let stand for
a few minutes.
