I think of Food Shopping like a game. I go to www.couponmom.com and check for local sales on the website. It only gives you the % off that your saving and what coupon you need to maximize it. If you only buy things at 40-60% off you can save a lot of money. I once saved $145 in one shopping trip.

Buy discount bananas in bulk, peel and freeze! Save money and eat healthy too!
I use these bananas in their frozen state to make yummy smoothies with the consistency of a shake for breakfast, a snack or even dessert. These frozen bananas also come in handy for making your favorite healthy banana baked goods recipes.
I use mint.com to track everything and budget. When I saw how much I had spent on fast food, I knew I had to change my family's lifestyle. So by not stopping at Micky D's in morning or Taco bell in the evening, I use that money to purchase healthier food items at the supermarket. Save money and eat healthy. Yeah!244
I save money and eat healthy by slow cooking large amounts of brown rice or beans and then saving meal sized portions in re-usable freezer and microwave safe containers. I also do this with chicken breast I use for salads and sandwiches and it saves me from buying the salty prepared kind.
