Grocery Store Steals and Tips

How to Eat Right and Save Too!

Shop in season. Fresh fruits and vegetables are an important part of any diet, but they can be costly. To avoid high prices, buy produce when you know it's in season. It'll be cheaper and taste fresher. For example, blueberries are in season from late spring through summer, so try picking up these nutrition powerhouses then. They'll taste great, cost less, and give your diet a boost.

Grow it yourself. It might take a little extra time and energy. Still, not only is it cheaper in the long run, but there is nothing like the satisfaction that comes from serving food that you nurtured and cultivated yourself. These fruits and vegetables might even be healthier than store produce: they won't have been exposed to harsh pesticides or been transported on a truck. It might be unreasonable to expect you to farm dozens of plants, but a couple of pots on the deck or porch is pretty manageable.
