Money Tip: Supplement With the Salad Bar

Cooking at home is happening more often than not in most households, and according to a new ShopSmart poll women are in charge of most meal preparation, which takes them an average 45 minutes per weekday dinner. In an effort to save both time and money, the magazine offers a helpful tip that sends you to the salad bar.

Assuming you're armed with a list of things you'll need for the week ahead, ShopSmart suggests you head to the salad bar when all you need is a little bit of certain ingredients, like peppers or onions. Given how often I find a forgotten half of a cucumber past its prime or an overlooked Ziploc of leftover zucchini, adopting this tip would, at the very least, help me waste less.

The only time I do this is if I'm making something that calls for a tiny amount of something that I don't normally eat. Otherwise, I eat so many fruits and veggies that they never really go bad.

granted it is a clean salad bar, this is a good tip. you can easily grab an extra few items while grabbing your own lunch and then dinner would be that much easier.
