Even if you have a small space, it’s possible to grow at least some of your own food. Vertical gardening is a great way to maximize food-growing space. If you’re looking for small space gardening inspiration, I highly recommend Urban Organic Gardener. Mike’s been growing his own food for years: first on his tiny NY fire escape and now on his LA balcony.

If eating leftovers isn’t your favorite thing, look at some ways to revamp leftover food to make it last and ensure that nothing goes to waste. To stretch that food budget even further, you can even cook with food scraps!
