One of the fastest ways to save money is by strategically cutting back on food spending.
Most of us have no idea how much we really spend on food. However, it’s easy to gain awareness simply by tracking spending for a month or so.
With Tiller Money, you can use granular categories and tags to understand your food spending habits.
I use the categories “groceries,” “dining out,” “coffee,” and “drinks out.” Seeing my weekly spending trends encourages me to trim back (or even better, splurge on a fun dinner out).
After you know what you’re actually spending, meal planning is the next step for saving on food expenses.
Especially with families, meal planning is one “hack” that can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars each year.
If you have meal planning advice or a spreadsheet you like, please share it here. I look forward to learning what works for you!
