In case the average consumer has not noticed or has not been informed, the average cost of food for
American families has steadily increased over the past years. Economic and agricultural issues have
attributed to this consistent rise in food costs and they are obviously subject to change in the future.

Now, whether this change will be a decrease in costs or an increase is only something that can be
projected short term. The uncertainty in the food industry is therefore something families and
individuals across the nation should be taking into consideration while planning their monthly budget.

The Costs of Food
Many families and individuals are struggling financially in today’s economic situation and monthly bills
and expenses quickly drain the family’s income. One of the necessities of a family’s monthly budget is
the food costs.

Food costs are and should be an interregnal part of any family’s budget and should be given priority over
most other expenses. The United States Department of Agriculture publishes a monthly report on the
                                                average food costs that a family can expect to pay to
                                                provide their family with nutritional meals.

                                                 This report is broken up into food costs for individuals
                                                 of differing ages and for families of different sizes and is
                                                 additionally partitioned into four different levels
                                                 expense for the average cost of meal plans from thrifty
                                                 meal plans to liberal meal plans. This report is called
                                                 the Cost of Food at Home at Four Levels, so named for
                                                 the four different levels of cost for healthy meal plans.

                                                    This monthly report can be extremely helpful for those
families who wish to plan their budget with average costs of food in mind. The average cost of food in
the thrifty plan for a family of four in October of 2012, for example, ranges from just under five hundred
and fifty dollars a month to just over six hundred and twenty depending on the ages of the children in
the family.

Keep in mind that those numbers were the average cost of food for a family following the thrifty meal
plan. This means that in order to provide a healthy and well balanced meal for their family, a person
who expects to pay the least amount of money possible per month on food can expect to pay at least
five hundred dollars to adequately feed their family of four.

Saving Money on Food
This does not mean, however, that the family needs to break the proverbial bank by over spending on
food costs. With these high costs every month it is easy to see why some individuals are determined to
save as much as possible on food costs.
Coupons and deals offered by local grocery stores are a great way for individuals and families to save on
their monthly food costs. Preserving and not wasting food, perhaps by using food sealing technologies,
is also another way that families can save hundreds per year on costs.

Food sealing is becoming increasingly popular for its effectiveness in vacuum sealing leftover or bulk
foods thereby preserving food for later use.

Shopping wisely and planning sufficiently, as well as investing in food sealing equipment, will be
important for any family who wishes to save more money even while food costs continue to soar.
