Tighten the belt in 2010

Here are tips on how to spend less on food:

Stockpile: When a nonperishable item is offered at a great price, buy multiples.

Price match: If your store matches competitors' prices, bring along other supermarkets' sales fliers to get the lowest prices on more items at your own store. Wal-Mart and Target, for example, have national price-matching policies.
