Terms of Use:   

For quick cost cutting on your food expenses, try this:

If you buy lunch each day, try brown-bagging it instead.  If you brought the same items you purchased at the deli or restaurant, you could likely save at least half the cost. 

If you are hooked on a daily latte, you could cut your cost in half by ordering a misto (brewed coffee with steamed milk, as opposed to espresso with steamed milk).  Of course, skipping the coffee shop and brewing your own is cheaper yet.

If you want to socialize with friends, but don't want to pay the high price of restaurant food and drink, invite friends in for pot luck or appetizers.

If you're too tired to cook, but don't want to spend money on take out, turn to inexpensive pasta as a way to create something tasty.
