iVillage: Ways to Save Money at the Supermarket

Enjoy What You've Got

Your cabinets are probably filled with forgotten food. So for one week, try to eat exclusively from your pantry, fridge and freezer. “This is a great plan for when you need a quick hit of major savings, such as after the holidays or an unexpected expense,” says Food Network star Melissa D’Arabian. Take a tour of your kitchen pantry and write down the major ingredients lurking around, and use this list to create a menu for the week — you can easily uncover hundreds of dollars worth of forgotten food, she says. “It’s a fun challenge to see how long you can go without buying new items.” (Sort of like finding a $20 in last winter’s jacket.) For more sage tips, check out D’Arabian’s New York Times best-selling cookbook, "Ten Dollar Dinners."
