Learning how to grocery shop for cheap cooking is a must for cheap living; an important point I make in "How to Survive Inflation with the Rising Cost of Food". Buying groceries accounts for the majority of a family’s monthly income. Today more than ever before grocery products are rising at a rapid rate. The following are some rules to follow to save money.
NOTE: I purchased this (almost) 20 pound boneless ham (pictured above) for $18.45. Most hams this size come from very large hogs and these usually have a lot of fat in them. This is an important note when you are learning how to grocery shop. I bought it mainly for seasoning cheap recipes like dried beans and green beans; that price was even good for this purpose. Even though it was cheap, I found very little fat in it. I was able to dice 8 cups of the ham to make 4 casseroles, I cut about 6 cups in larger chunks (this can also be diced if I want), I cut a large ham steak, many pounds of sliced ham and 2 quarts of ham with fat for seasoning. I put most of this in the freezer and it is ready for quite a few deliciously flavored cheap recipes.
