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.
It takes some discipline, but it is worthwhile going back to basics, such as making lists. I make quick lists of dishes I want to eat or cook and the ingredients I need using the Notes app on my iPhone.
