Grocery shopping Q&A! How to freeze fruit, use leftovers, food tips GALORE! [Ask Me Monday]

Ask me Monday! You send in your lifestyle, parenting, frugal living (or any other burning subject!) question, and I will pick one, and answer! Get the scoop, www.FunCheapOrFree.comAaaah, that beloved grocery bill. Kicks you in the pants a bit, doesn’t it? Putting it lightly…how much you spend on groceries can make or break you. If you go to the store several times per week, wander the aisles, tossing whatever sounds good in your cart…I hate to break it to you, but you’re doing you and your family a disservice. It’s certainly better than ordering takeout and I’m proud of you for cooking! But chances are you’re paying way too much for groceries which doesn’t do anyone (except the store) any favors, and you could save upwards of HALF on your grocery bill by changing a few simple things!

I’ve had TONS of grocery shopping questions lately so I decided to do a Facebook Live Q&A session about it. We covered so many topics! Not just how I grocery shop, but about reusing leftovers, how to make lettuce last, quick and simple meal ideas, how to freeze fruit, veggies, leftovers, and even cooked rice and pasta (oh yes you did hear me right!) and way more!

Here are all the questions and answers. Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram so you can know when the next Live Q&A is! But for now, on to the questions:
