Eating doesn't have to break the bank. To "Uber it" has almost become a verb in some circles. My Food Bag and lookalike services have become the expensive norm for people rather than a treat.

Yes we all want to eat well and for most of us it's a chore to cook. Yet good food doesn't need to cost a lot. In fact avoiding just one or two conveniences a week can save thousands of dollars over a year. A stop, think and cook approach is vital.
