A lot of common sense goes into shopping for food and saving money. The advice from your mother about making a shopping list and sticking to it really works. And shopping locally, well, that just makes sense on so many levels: fresher produce, fresher flavor, less cost, and environmentally friendly.

So take a tip from our sister publication, Mother Earth News, and learn how you can enjoy better and healthier food, while spending less. Author Barbara Pleasant takes you through each step: Follow a Food-efficient Diet, How to Run a Food-efficient Kitchen, Spend Your Food Dollars Wisely, How Much Do You Waste? And Fight the Urge to Buy.

Reading for a few minutes may help you take a bite out of that food bill come next month. Read more here.
