How Meatless Monday Can Save You Money

You love to eat meat, and just the thought of going without the occasional hamburger terrifies you. But what if you could save money by skipping meat for just one day a week?

It’s called Meatless Monday, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. If a family of four spends about $ 20 on a meat lasagna for dinner, cutting out the meat from that one meal would save about $ 10 a week, or a whopping $ 520 per year!

And that’s just the estimate for one meal — imagine the savings you could see for the entire day.

Going meatless can also boost your budget by steering you to use ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Dried lentils, healthy sauces, and whole grains like brown rice or quinoa are a few meatless essentials; combine a few, and you’ll have a meal in minutes.

So next Monday, skip the meat and see how much you can save!
