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.

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.
