Penny-pinch on poultry

With a whole chicken bought on sale, you can save money and feed the family for days, says Michelle Mista, a foodie who writes the blog Delishiono. Roast a chicken for meal No. 1. Then, make sure the leftovers keep going with food preservation.

"Take the chicken apart immediately following your first meal, packing the pieces separately for whatever leftover recipe you have in mind," Mista says. "For example, if you plan on making chicken sandwiches, slice the chicken breast and pack it immediately after dinner rather than letting the bird hang around whole. Stock made from leftover chicken carcass can be made the next day."

For food safety, use chicken within three days or freeze leftovers.
