Shave $150 a week off your grocery bill

“My daughter Julia and her friend Chelsea were eating pancakes at the kitchen counter one recent morning when the doorbell rang. It was the man from Peapod, an online grocery store, with my food for the week. ‘That’s a lot of groceries,” Chelsea said. “My mom shops for dinner every night.’ She’s not the only one. Grocery shopping seems simple enough, but Americans are wasting more money, food and time than ever by not planning. We spend more on food each year (an average of $5,340 these days) than on anything else besides our house and car.”
