Welcome to Day 9 of 10 Days of Gluten Free. Here’s today’s frugal tip:
Use a menu plan! Preparing ahead of time is key to saving money, especially when eating a restrictive diet. This helps you know what you need to shop for, and helps you get the best deal. I try to plan my meals a week ahead of time using what I have on hand in my freezer and pantry, and incorporating what is on sale at my local grocery store. If planning this way seems overwhelming to you, you could check out a meal planning service like eMeals, which offers a gluten-free menu plan. It is a simple plan with a once-weekly shopping list, and gives you lots of variety and nutrition.
