Beef Up Meals
You want your family to eat healthier, so you grab the 80 percent lean ground beef at the supermarket, even though it's more expensive than the fattier meat. Save money and pick up the 70 percent lean instead. Once the meat is cooked, the calories and fat are nearly the same, and you can save more than 25 cents per pound.
- Potential savings: $27 per year, assuming you purchase 2 pounds each week.
