  • Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season. Produce that is in season is
    offered at a lower cost than foods that are not in season.
  • Look for sales and coupons in the newspaper or store ads. If you do not get the paper, you can pick up an ad in-stores, or check out the stores’ online websites for sales.
  • Plan meals ahead and stick to your grocery list. Planning meals along with the weekly sales is a great way to save money.
  • Buy fruits and vegetables that are not pre-cut or sliced. Fruits and vegetables that are pre-prepared are often more expensive, and could have added preservatives and sugars.
