Weekly Money Tip! Shop at home before going grocery shopping. I can’t be the only person who puts items into the freezer and then totally forgets they are there. After a while, a lot of it ends up going into the trash and is wasted money…. Before going to the grocery store for the next few months, let’s make a pledge to empty out our freezers by actually using it! Shop your freezer first and plan your meals around what you already have. Another great idea is to have an inventory list of what’s in the freezer so you make it even easier on yourself. It doesn’t do any good to buy 20 pounds of chicken on sale if you forget to ever take it back out.
