Despite an awesome scholarship and good job, I was a broke ass college student. I blame it on the wine and women. Mainly the women though. Those damn support payments Whatever the reason, here is the BEST guide to saving YOUR money at the grocery store, to maximize the amount of high quality food you eat, without exploding your bank account. When shopping smart, even if you are bulking, you can spend less than -60 a week with high quality food. TOP TIPS 1. Shop for the deals on the meat. Every week at all the grocery stores, meat varies in price. Sometimes chicken breast is .99 a lb sometimes its .99 a lb, you have to pay attention to the sales and strike while the iron is hot. Stock that shit up in the freezer 2. JOIN a large discount retail store like COSTCO, Sam’s Club or Trader Joes. These warehouse facilities sell Olive Oil, Peanut Butter, Tuna and Egg Whites for FAR cheaper than anywhere else. Buying in BULK always saves you money. 3. When it comes to meat, which is the most expensive thing to buy, look for large cuts of meat on sale that you can butcher yourself. Also ask the local butcher for last-date meat discounts. Chop it up and freeze the rest, you’ll save A LOT of money this way. 4. When it comes to produce like vegetables

Recession: are we putting our health on hold?

piggy_bank_-_dollarIt’s lean times due to the current recession. Yet, instead of all losing all those excess fat, more and more people are actually gaining weight! This video at ABC news presents results of a survey conducted by the American Heart Association (AHA) and it’s not good news at all. The current economic problems are forcing people to skimp on things which are essential to their health.

The results of a national omnibus survey of 1,000 people conducted in March 2009 by the AHA show that:

The results are a bit worrying considering that the effects of investment (or rather non-investment) in health care and healthy lifestyle can only be seen years from now.

It is understandable that people should cut down on certain things in order to save money. However, it is important to set priorities straight and cut down on things that are non-essential but keep things which are essential for our health going. So what should be the things that we should prioritize?

Here are however some things that you can and should cut down:

  • Cigarettes and other tobacco products. Now is the best time to quit. Save money, save your health.
  • Alcohol. Alcohol is fattening, calorie-rich, and expensive. Your body won’t miss it.
  • Eating out. Maybe it’s time to brush up on your culinary skills and eat more often at home. It need be complicated. A salad doesn’t take much time to prepare and is healthy.

For more tips, check out a previous post on keeping healthy in a sick economy.

As the ABC video rightly said so: “Don’t put your health on hold.”
