A new survey finds that people believe food is at the root of their overall financial woes.

We talk a lot about food waste and the battle we have in feeding Americans, A new survey from hloom asked 2,000 people about their financial and food dilemma. They found that people believe that food is at the root of their overall financial woes. 

Almost 69% of those surveyed said that eating out was the top money waster they would be willing to reduce, followed by one quarter of the group who blamed alcohol as the number two. These far exceeded items like credit card interest, `clothes, electricity even gambling.   Of the ways folks waste money that they’re not willing to change, throwing out expired foods was number one and wasting bucks on groceries was number two.
