Four Easy Ways to Cut the Food Budget

Look at all this pork that just arrived!  Friends of ours were kind enough to offer a portion of the hog they slaughtered, so we were able to put about 80 lbs. in the freezer.  Our price ended up being under $2/lb., which is a fantastic price given the rising cost of food.

According to this article at Fox News:  The average price of bacon across America has risen 14 percent since June of last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Now bacon is going for a whopping $6.11 per pound, which is 41 percent higher than the per-pound price in June 2012.

Food is one of the biggest expenses in most household budgets.  It's more important than ever to get the best prices on food.

Here are four easy ways to cut the food budget:

1.  Shopping sales and using coupons.
2.  Get locally raised and grown food to save money and reduce pesticide and hormone exposure.
3.  Start a backyard garden.  Check out this Florida Vegetable Gardening Guide from the University of Florida IFAS Extension.  This is one of my next projects.
4.  Cook at home more often and reduce eating out.

We are going to try a different recipe for each package of pork chops.  So far, we've tried the Publix Aprons Pork With Butter Herb Sauce that was served in-store last week.  Yum!  And the Zucchini Potato Pancakes were delicious as well.

Take a look at my Recipes Tab here on the website - I've been collecting recipes from all over the internet from other blogs and websites.  I've tried many of these, and will be trying the pork chop recipes in the near future.  If you use Pinterest, go to the Simply Saving at Publix Pinterest Page - I have pinned recipes for Dinner, Desserts, Side Dishes, Beverages, Soups, and Appetizers.

Lastly, I was wondering what the hog's head is used for.  It was already spoken for this time, but I was curious about what people would actually use this for.  Delicacies such as hog's head cheese, boiled cheek and tongue, and fried ears seem to be some of the uses.  We'll probably be sticking with the more traditional cuts here in our household!

Get $2 Off Listerine With This Coupon Stack

A new purple health and beauty flyer came out over the weekend.  Inside is a Publix coupon for $1 off one Listerine which pairs nicely with a printable manufacturers coupon we have available.

$1/1 Listerine Publix coupon - purple health and beauty flyer valid through 9/26
$1/1 Adult Listerine 1.0 L or larger MQ - limit one per computer

I'm not sure of the price, but $2 off is a good start.  If it goes on sale, even better!

Flavor Excursion Publix Coupons

Flavor Excursion coupons are now available at Publix.  I found four coupons at a stand-up display, but there may be others that were already wiped out.  Coupons are valid 9/4 - 10/6.  Keep an eye out for these Publix coupons:

$1/5 Hunt's Tomatoes 14.5 oz. - on sale this week for $1
$1/1 Bisquick 40 oz. - regular price $3.95
$1/1 Old El Paso Frozen Entree
$1/5 RoTel Tomatoes 10 oz. - on sale this week for $1
