36 easy steps to cheaper food

  3. Eat your leftovers for lunch because they often taste even better the next day.

  5. Stale bread can be warmed in the oven to make it taste fresh again.
  6. Casseroles and stews are simple and cheap to cook.
  7. Learn how to cook the cheapest cuts of meat, like shin of beef or kidneys.
  8. Try the less-well-known types of fish like pollack, which is considered a cheaper alternative to cod.
