With the price of food on the rise, consumers are looking for any way to save money they can. Here are a few simple suggestions on ways to share the cost of food with your friends, neighbors and family members.
This is one of our primary methods of saving money. With as many people as we have in our family, we don’t usually have anything spoil before we use it. However others don’t have large families like I do, so why not share the cost with a friend or neighbor? Go shopping together and split the cost of food and then bring it home and divide everything up.
Meal Making Co-op
This is another of my favorite methods, except that is because it is an excuse for me to hang out with a friend or two. I will be writing more on this method in the upcoming days, so please be sure and check out those articles for starting your own and tips and ideas once you have.
Many grocery stores have these special types of sales where you can purchase 10 for $10.00. The catch is that you have to actually buy all 10 of those items. What in the world are you going to do with ten boxes of cheerios. Are you really going to be able to eat all those before the spoil? If not, consider including a friend or neighbor in the deal and split the cost of purchasing them all together. Keep a careful watch because sometimes they will allow you to mix and match at that price so you don’t have to have ten of the exact same item.
These are just a few ways I can think of to split the cost of food. Another is the Angel Food Ministries, and if you haven’t checked them out – you really should! More on that coming up soon!
