Instant Bargains: 600+ Ways to Shrink Your Grocery Bills and Eat Well for Less
by Kimberly Danger
My reviews are usually of cookbooks and recipe oriented. So, now that I have you hooked on cooking, I thought I would help you save money on buying those groceries.
This book starts out with the common sense hints of using coupons and shopping the sales. Also there are the usual lists of what you can freeze and for how long. But it goes so much further than that.
There are tips on when to find the best bargains for stocking up. We all know about the day after Christmas for all kinds of items. But did you know that June is National Dairy Month or that September is National Chicken Month?
Where to shop for the best prices. One that surprised me in that section was the suggestion that your convenience store/gas station might have the best deal for milk and bread.
Those of you who don't cook or prefer to eat out often should read the chapter titled "But I Don't Cook". There you will find tips on making the most of the salad bar and deli counter at your grocery and how to save money at the restaurant.
