Glinda says the Widlunds can drastically cut food costs by using a shopping list, setting a spending limit and preparing meals at home.
Armed with a grocery list and a spending limit of $100, Mark and Victoria take their first stab at Debt Diet grocery shopping. It's a challenge for them to stick to the list yet they spend just $1.57 over their limit.
In addition to shopping smarter, Glinda shows them another way to trim the fat from their food expenses. By going to the grocery store instead of ordering dinner out or picking up a quick meal at the convenience store, the Widlunds will save $175 a week. By packing lunches, they will save an additional $100 a week.
With Glinda's plan, the Widlunds are losing more than their debt—Marnie says she's lost a few pounds by eating a bag lunch from home each day!
