Check and chuck! Check your refrigerator every day, your freezer every week and your pantry at least once a month. Add it to your meal plan before you have to toss it.
When you plan ahead for healthy snacks, you're less likely to reach for the bag of chips when you're hungry.
Ensure a healthy diet!
Include something from each group: fruit, vegetable, protein, bread, and dairy.
Pay attention to prices!
If you know how much something usually costs, you'll know if it is a good deal when it's "on sale."
Plan for double portions
Prepare one portion to cook and serve, and the other to freeze for later.
