1 Tip: Stretch Your Food Dollar to Manage Costs
Although there are signs of slowing, the rate of inflation still remains near a 40-year high. Food is one area where we can try to keep our costs down. Here are a few ways you can trim your food budget:
- Reduce the number of times you eat out per week
- Plan your meals ahead of time and use similar ingredients
- Buy produce that’s on sale
- Sign up for loyalty programs
- Plan at least one night for leftovers
- Replace meat with dried beans, peas, lentils, tofu, and eggs
- Allow more time between grocery shopping visits
2 Quotes From Others
“You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.” – Paul Prudhomme
“The three most important ways to lead people are:... by example...by example...by example.” – Albert Schweitzer
Actions speak louder than words. It’s a phrase that’s over 280 years old, with origins that date back to the French Renaissance. During that time, philosopher Michel de Montaigne said simply, “Saying is a different thing from doing.”
Montaigne’s words get to the core of what it means to lead by example. Words without action don’t cut it. Actions without words, however, can be impactful. When you lead by example, you:
- Build trust and respect
- Encourage learning from failure
- Inspire learning and commitment
Actions show the way and will inspire the leaders of tomorrow.
