It is most necessary for every body to cut down on his food expenses.
Since the early 1970s, the cost of food has gone up faster than the cost of all other commodities
and services. The increase has amounted to more than 300%. For all Egyptian families food is
the biggest item in their monthly household budget. In fact, it swallows more than half the
budget of millions of low - income families. People suffer a lot from the high prices of food.
How will such a state of affairs end ? Is it the fate of low – income families to face starvation ?
Isn't there a way out? To be sure, there is. You can reduce your food expenses at least 20%
by observing the following pieces of advice. Note the food items which you need when your
supplies run low. Group the same kinds of food and supplies together and write a list of your
needs. Use your list as you shop and nowadays in different forms; fresh, canned and frozen.
Choose the cheapest and the healthiest ones. You can buy fresh vegetables instead of frozen
ones because they are cheaper and healthier. Chickens are cheaper than red meat. You can have
beans, cheese and eggs instead of meat. One last advice, "Don't go shopping on an empty
stomach.” Shopping when you are hungry may tempt you to buy things you don't really need.
