I love my fresh fruit, but I found I was wasting my money when the fruit would go bad before I could finish it. Now to save money if it gets close to browning or going bad I now fresh freeze it. Slice it into small peices and reuse the fresh frozen for smoothies or fruit salad as needed!!!

You'll save more by switching thing from premade/packaged foods to staple whole foods: 1. uncles bens minute rice - bulk food white/brown rice 2. fruit cups - buy produce, chop up into tupperware, n store 3. spaghetti sauce - make your own, its easy and cheaper! 4. ketchup/mayo - make your own, its easy and cheap! 3. lemonades/teas - make your own, its easy and cheap!
People don't think to make their own stuff, but most of it is much cheaper to make yourself, and it tastes good
I have found that I can afford mostly organic products when i stick to buying only simple and whole foods (rices, fresh/frozen fruits and veggies, oats, barley, beans, nuts, chicken, turkey). The things that are pricey are anything premade or preserved! I make my own sauces, teas , etc! YUM!
I have been buying frozen fruits such as strawberries, or strawberry, peach, banana mix to make frozen fruit smoothies. Fresh bananas also to add to just the plain bag of strawberries. I use water, ice, some artificial sweeteners and crystal light drink mix in a blender and have two of these a day, they are soooo good. A great way to fill up, have your fruit and make it feel like a treat.
