I do try to plan meals ahead, and sometimes that works. I do try to keep ingredients on hand for easy and inexpensive meals. The thing that works the best for us is to avoid all of the prepackaged convenience foods. We don't avoid buying them all together, but they are definitely not a staple in our kitchen.

I don't really do the coupon thing unless it's for a product I use.

I plan ahead for meals and 3 -4 times a year I go through my freezer and panty and plan meals for what we have on hand and only have to buy what we need.
