Do you have trouble sticking to a budget when you make your weekly grocery list?
Well you’re in luck!
I'm outlining my top tips to eating healthy on a budget -
I promise, it's totally possible!
Here are some simple tips for eating healthy on a budget:
Use frozen fruits & veggies – this reduces food waste and allows you to diversify the number of veggies you're using in each dish
Buy produce in season – veggies like cabbage, squash & broccoli tend to be cheaper during the winter months when they're in season. Likewise, apples are cheaper in the fall, berries are cheaper in the summer and so forth
Use coupons & look at your local grocery flyer to see what's on sale
Stay away from the inner aisles of the grocery store – trust me, it's just filled with junk and it's more expensive than buying basics
Shop for spices in bulk - they are WAY at your local bulk foods store than at the grocery store, and you'll get way more
Shop for pantry staples at discount grocery stores - ingredients such as oils, vinegars, condiments, sauces, etc. are often a couple dollars cheaper at stores like Price Chopper, Aldi, etc. They are also sometimes cheaper at Walmart.
Shop for no-name products whenever possible – again they are usually more than $1 cheaper and taste just the same
Buy meat when it's on sale and freeze it – you usually have 3 or more months to eat it up so if you have the storage bulk in bulk!
With a few simple modifications to your shopping routine, you can instantly start saving tons of cash and still eat healthy at home.
