4. Use leftovers : Be creative and use leftover food. Leftover vegetables can become soups or omelettes, and leftover meat can be used in sandwiches or salads.

5. Meal Prep : Plan your meals in advance and prepare foods in batches. Meal prep saves time and prevents expensive spontaneous food purchases on the go. Bring your own meals and snacks to work or school. This prevents you from buying expensive snacks on the go. Our best tips here: always have a jar of overnight oats with you - it's so much cheaper than a sandwich at the bakery, for example.
