Meat Prices Breaking Your Budget? Try These 5 Foods Instead!

As meat prices continue to rise it’s almost impossible to put even a simple meal of Manwich and french fries on the table. Even ground beef is sky high these days. How do you serve your family a nutritious meal without breaking your budget? Here are five foods you can serve that are just as tasty, and even a little healthier.

Eggs

Using eggs as a substitute for meat doesn’t mean you have to serve scrambled eggs for dinner. There are lots of things you can do with eggs. Make deviled eggs. Put boiled eggs in a salad. Make egg salad sandwiches. Add an egg to your fried rice. Make an omelette or quiche. Just one egg has 6 grams of protein.

Fish

Yes, tuna counts! So far, tuna prices seem to be unaffected. A 12 oz. can of Chicken of the Sea tuna runs around $3 to $4 and it contains 11 grams of protein. Add tuna to your salad or make tuna salad sandwiches. Whip up a hearty tuna casserole or just stir a can of tuna into your kids’ mac & cheese.

Beans

Ah, beans, beans, the magical fruit. But let’s not forget how nutritious those little guys are. One cup of beans has 8 grams of protein! If your family cringes at the thought of a simple bean soup for dinner, try sprinkling garbanzo beans on a salad or make a batch of humus. Even chili without the meat is delicious and baked beans aren’t just a side dish.

Almonds

Almonds? Who wants to eat a handful of nuts for dinner, right? Wrong! One ounce of almonds has 11 grams of protein. Just 23 almonds covers your recommended daily amount of protein. Sprinkle them over your salad. Have them for a snack on Meatless Monday. Add them to your banana bread. Put them in your smoothie.

Yogurt

Did you know there are 85 grams of protein in a cup of yogurt? If meat prices are busting your budget, try adding yogurt to your breakfast menu instead of bacon. Substitute plain yogurt for half the mayonnaise in your salad dressings. Add it to your smoothies. Top it with granola for a tasty snack or hearty breakfast.

Combat Rising Grocery Prices During The Pandemic

rising grocery prices during covid 19

If it’s been a while since you ventured into your local grocery store, prepare yourself.  You’re in for a shock.  And I’m not talking about the empty shelves and plexiglass barriers.  I’m talking about sticker shock.  Everybody’s talking about how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from Coronavirus.  What we need to talk about today is how to beat rising grocery prices during the pandemic and how to protect your wallet.

Here’s What’s Getting More Expensive

Brace yourself, this isn’t pretty.  Grocery prices aren’t just gradually increasing, they’re racing through the stratosphere.  According to a May 14, 2020 article at CNN on the grocery index:

  • Egg prices shot up 16.1% last month
  • Milk, bread and juice prices rose 1.5%, 3.7% and 3.8%, respectively
  • Fruit prices were up 1.5%, led by apples (4.9%) and oranges (5.6%)
  • Chicken shot up 5.8%, fresh fish soared 4.2%, and hot dogs got 5.7% more expensive

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

This ground beef at Kroger?  It used to be around $14.00.  The price has increased by 34%!  And it’s only 73% lean!

How To Beat Rising Grocery Prices During The Pandemic

Change the way you look at your shopping list

Be prepared to shop for substitutions for items on your list.  Many of the items you regularly buy will be out of stock, now.  For example, people all across America have decided to use their time during lockdown learning to bake bread.  Good luck to you if you like to keep a few packets of yeast in your pantry, you won’t find it anywhere.

Many of the items you regularly buy will be more expensive, too.  For example, my family likes to keep those Knorr Pasta Sides on hand and they’re usually priced at 10 for $10 at my local Kroger.  These days, they’re $1.25, which makes them not such a bargain anymore.

Go ahead and make your shopping list like you always have but look at it as more of a “Want” list instead of a “Need” list.  You are not going to find everything you have on your list and if you do, it’s definitely going to be more expensive.

Change your family’s eating habits

Like I said, most of the things you normally put on your shopping list are going to be a bit more expensive.  I’d like to be able to say, “Buy THIS instead of THAT” but you just don’t know what’s going to be in stock and at what price these days.

Instead, look around at what’s in stock at a price you can afford and work it into your family’s meal plan.  Grocery stores are set up so that the most popular items are at eye level and that’s where are the empty spaces are.  Look around and you’ll find lots of inexpensive alternatives.

Change the way you plan your meals

Maybe it’s time to forget about Taco Tuesday and the family feast on Sunday.  These days you can’t be inflexible in your meal plans because that taco seasoning is probably out of stock and… have you seen the price for a roast lately?!  If you want to save money you have to be willing to pivot on a dime.  Focus on just feeding your family a healthy, nutritious meal that won’t bust your budget.

Be prepared to shop

If you normally shop the perimeter, now’s the time to branch out and explore the rest of the store.  For example, my family likes a particular brand of frozen orange chicken.  The last time I shopped it was out of stock but as I was exploring the store I found the same item in two other locations – in stock!

The price on chicken these days is outrageous.  That big yellow sticker might quickly put an end to your plans to make chicken pot pies for dinner.  Explore the frozen food aisle.  You might find plenty of stock on Marie Calendar’s chicken pot pies and they’re were cheaper than if you bought all the ingredients and made them yourself.

Start using grocery coupons

Reports vary but the average consumer can expect to save 25 – 35% when they use grocery coupons.  With the right coupons and a well-planned trip you can save 50 – 75% or more.  (Here’s an example of how we saved 83% with coupons!)

I know, I know… You don’t have time to look for coupons and sort coupons and clip coupons and I agree.  These are very stressful times we’re living in and everyone’s schedule has been hijacked.

But the fact is, each one of those little coupons means you’re spending less money at the grocery store.  They add up.  And saving money on staples means you have the money you need to pay for things like meat, eggs, and milk.

If lack of time prevents you from being able to put a nutritious meal in front of your family, let a coupon clipping service do the work for you.  Visit The Happy Couponer Marketplace where you’ll find coupon clippers from all over the United States, ready and willing to help you combat those rising grocery prices during the pandemic.

You remember Lucky Charms Cereal, right?  Of course you do.  They’re magically delicious!  But who knew there were so many things you could do with Lucky Charms cereal?  Aside from the obvious, dumping it in a bowl and dousing it with milk.

If you’ve been on the fence about picking up some of our $.75/1 General Mills Cereal coupons, hesitate no more.  Sure, it’s a great deal to get $.75 off a box of cereal or $1.50 if your store doubles.  But maybe you’re thinking you don’t need 10 or 15 boxes of cereal right now.

Let me assure you – Yes.  Yes you do!

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and we’re already thinking about Irish-themed parties.  What’s more Irish than Lucky Charms Cereal?  (If you said, ‘Green beer’, we agree, but this is a family website so let’s keep that to ourselves.)

Lucky Charms Trivia

Did you know that the marshmallows in Lucky Charms are meant to represent Lucky the Leprechaun’s magical charms?

  1. Hearts – power to bring things to life
  2. Shooting Stars – power to fly
  3. Horseshoes – power to speed things up

Buy Sunday Newspaper Coupons Instead of Sunday Newspapers!

couponing tips how many sunday newspapers do you buy

How many Sunday papers do you buy every week?  If the answer is more than “one” you’re probably wasting money.  You could be getting all the Sunday newspaper coupons you want at a fraction of the cost!

How many Sunday papers do you buy?

We know a few couponers who actually buy 20 Sunday papers a week.  At $3.00 per paper that’s $60 they’re spending every week just to get the coupons.

Chances are those same couponers only use a small fraction of the coupons in those inserts.  Let’s face it, this time of year there’s at least five or six cold medicine coupons in every issue.  How many bottles of cold medicine are you really going to buy?  When you pay for 20 newspapers at a time, every coupon you don’t use greatly decreases the value of the coupons you do use.  Some weeks it’s possible you’ll spend more money on newspapers than you save using the few coupons you find.

Buy Sunday Newspaper Coupons Instead of Sunday Newspapers

How many Sunday papers should you buy?

At most you should only buy one Sunday paper, and that’s not even a couponing necessity.  Your favorite coupon blogger probably publishes a list of upcoming coupons somewhere on his or her blog a few days before the inserts are available.  And that’s not a necessity either, because …

You can find all the Sunday newspaper coupons you want at The Happy Couponer Marketplace!

Browse our clipped coupons and you’ll find all of the same coupons you see in your own Sunday paper.  You’ll also find all of those hard-to-find, high-value regional coupons that are not in your own Sunday paper.

Now you can buy bulk quantities of only the coupons you really want at a fraction of the price you were paying for all those Sunday papers.  They’ll be clipped, organized, and shipped directly to your door.  In some cases you may even have them before your Sunday paper arrives!
