I've been using this trick for years. When I shop at my local grocery store they always ask for my "Savings Card" when I get home I check to see how much I saved on that trip and I then put that money in a jar ( I always round up). When I get to $50.00 we have a "Free" meal out!!!

Be Honest with Yourself when Categorizing Spending
When figuring out where your money is being spent, be very wary of tricks used to "lie" to yourself. For example, do not get cash back when using a debit card at a grocery store - then track it as "Food".
This really helps narrow down where money can be saved. Withdrawn cash is easy to spend without thinking already, and when hidden in the wrong category, hard to identify ways to save.
I have found that cooking big and portioning what I'm going to eat each day 4 the week on Sundays saves time & keeps me from mindless eating.It realy works I can cook one turkey & have it in wraps, stir fry's, on salads & soups all in the same week, it keeps me from getting board or having to cook. It works with chicken & beef to, I just make up 3 or 4 meals using the same meat in different ways & dishing it up in small tuppers so its easy to grab. Having cut veggies & fruit in zip lock bags so
I can add them 2 my lunch bag in the morning is grate. Pre cooked wild rice makes lunches & dinners easier 2. Quick & easy is best in my house & avoiding fast food joints with out being a slave to the kitchen is key.58
