Aside from the sun and fun of Memorial Day celebrations, food is a major part of gatherings between friends, family and neighbors. Save money on your groceries for this weekend's celebration.

The price of food is at the highest point in almost two decades. Experts blame record prices for oil and gas, plus increasing demand for staples, plus beef and pork.

The average price of a BBQ is about six-percent higher this year than last.

A recent survey by the Food Marketing Institute found that about one-third of shoppers are choosing to buy frozen or boxed items instead of fresh this year.

The way to save money on groceries is simple. When it is time to go shopping, check the sale ads, compare stores and use coupons with items that are marked down. If you follow those steps, you'll easily save half off the regular price.
