Eat cheaper
Over the past couple of days, I have seen two websites that are demonstrating ways in which people can spend less money on food. One is a little more practical than the other; however, both are worth a mention.

1. The Hillbilly Housewife has a very thorough menu and instructions on how to feed a family of 4 for $45 per week. Interestingly, the menu isn't *that* terrible if you like beans. Other than the sodium content, it is pretty nutritious considering what it costs. Per person, you're looking at around $11 a week.

2. If $11 per week is just too much, then Adam Scott may have the plan for you. He has been eating nothing but ZuPreem monkey chow for the past 5 days. He is keeping a (hilariously deadpan) video diary on YouTube about the experience. Whether or not the guy is really eating monkey chow for every meal, the idea and the videos are hilarious. His goal is 1 week, so check out his diary over the next couple of days to see if he makes it. Here is the intro video to get you started:
