July 24, 2014: SCORE Method: R
Wondering how you can save money by cutting back on one thing?
The R in SCORE is something everyone can do for dinner TONIGHT…Reduce portions
Not only will your health improve, so will your budget. Start reducing the amount you eat AND the amount you cook with. For example: use ¾ lb ground beef when the recipe calls for 1 lb or use halve the amount of sugar in a recipe.
Use the same principle with paper products; make an effort to use less paper towel, napkins, etc. and instead switch to reusable cloths.
And don’t forget to split meals when going out to eat – the portions are typically twice a typical serving size anyway!
