Fill Your grocery With Savings!

You can still serve and eat healthy meals to your family and save money at the same time.
Check your cabinets and grocery store ads each week. Combine foods you already have with sale or special items to plan a menu.
Pick nutritious food that are usually cheap which may include dried beans, sweet potatoes, brown rice and non-instant, whole grain oatmeal. Write down each meal and a grocery list of foods you need to complete them.

When you're at the store, stay at the outer edges near products like meat, dairy and bakery and in the frozen and canned sections. This way, you'll avoid being tempted by fancy displays or unhealthy, expensive processed foods.
Read labels carefully to be sure you get the lowest price per ounce. Consider store brands instead of brand names.

Buy fresh fruits and veggies near the time when they're grown. Check farmer markets if they aren't available at your grocery store. Only buy as much as you need, or try frozen fruits and veggies. They're just as healthy and often less expensive especially outside growing season.
