Cook in Bulk
Why not take the bulk concept one step further and apply it to cooking? It takes a little extra planning, but it's totally worth it. In the best-case scenario, you'd plan a menu for the week, go shopping for the best deals and then take a weekend afternoon to cook and freeze all of your meals. But you'll still come out ahead if you just double the recipe every time you cook a meal and freeze what you don't need. It's a pretty simple way to save time and money.
