SINGAPORE - The price of everything from morning kopi to dinner at a favourite restaurant has been going up. There is nothing Singaporeans like more than a good deal, a lobang for discounts, a hack to save money. The Straits Times food team is no different. These are some ways we make our dollars stretch.
This means looking at every edible thing you have in your pantry, food cupboard, fridge, bomb shelter and wherever else you store food. I am guilty of buying things I already have, and I am guessing some of you are the same. Pull out the items that will expire soon and use them up before they do. Make a list before you head out to the market or supermarket, and stick to it.
