COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -It's day nine of our 30 days and 30 ways to save. Today's money saving secret may be a difficult one to swallow, but it's worth it.  We're going veggie.

Those of you who like a big juicy steak or a nice slab of ribs are probably cringing at that thought,but listen to this!  Cut the fat and go without meat for three days. We did the math and in a week's time the average family spends about $60.00 on meat.

If you made a meatless lasagna or tried out a couple other veggie recipes, you would save about $25.00 on your weekly grocery bill. Now, look at how quickly that adds up! In a month's time you save $100.00 and by the end of the year you're $1,200 richer.
