when they ask you for, You know, your biggest tip on saving money and time for doing this. What's the first thing you tell them? Just sort of philosophically, that they need to sort sort of start thinking about. So, you know, there's lots of building blocks, and I'm kind of alluded to some of them here, you know, between, you know, writing out a solid shopping list. You know, having your recipes for your family. Your family likes And, you know, I think, though, when you get down to it, if you were, if you're gonna focus on one thing or the first thing that I would say to focus on is right, first, look at the circulars. Um, the store ads, whatever you wanna call them, um, and see what's on sale. There are APS that have store ads. There are, um, you could get them emailed to you every week. If you sign up for the stores email newsletter, you could just sign up to have the weekly emails, you know, or the weekly ads sent to you. You can look on blog's. You can get the newspaper. I mean, they're everywhere, right? So look there. See what's on sale? Mainly meat and produce. Um, if you know, if you're from scratch cooking, you know, if you wanna get the box of whatever you could do that we don't like, you said we don't because of food allergies, That's, you know, carry that kind of from scratch because of that. Now, um, and then plan. You know, four or five meals that you can have that week based on what you see on sale. So if you see pork tenderloin, you know that's a big piece of meat. You're not gonna wellness you vaginal In this family, you're not going to eat all of that in one meal. So I would chop that up into two roasts and then sliced off a couple of pork chops off of a big tenderloin. And that's three meals where someone we might have pork roast at the beginning of the week, pork chops at the end of the week. And I could put the other one in the freezer. Right? So you kind of have thio, you know, chicken breast, the chickens and I feel like is the most popular meat. Maybe it's not, I don't know. This seems to me that's the case. Just reading what people say and in our own family to, um you know, when you see that on sale, you've got to plan to make meals that week using chicken and then by extra to stock up on so that in a couple weeks you don't have to pay full price, you know, further down the road. Because, chicken that the price the sale price on chicken is generally half more than half, depending on the store of the regular price versus the sale price. So what do you say?
