In my area, I have found my most affordable fresh fruits and veggies at Costco. Ok my garden is first, but next to that is Costco. I start in the produce section then hit the meat department. After that, there is not much room left in the cart for the junk. Yes you do have to resist the bakery items. I have a large family but you can divide the cost with a few friends if you cannot eat it all before it spoils.
My digital food scale gives me so much better accuracy. It measures in ounces or grams. The zero feature allows me to zero out my container, weigh my first ingredient, zero again, weigh the 2nd ingredient, zero again and so on until I have everything I will use in that dish. I simply write down each weight as I go. The scale also has nutritional infor on over 1000 foods. Well worth the $50 at Bed Bath and Beyond.
