Healthy Grocery Shopping on a Budget

Posted on 25th Feb 2019


  1. Buy in bulk.
  2. Purchase staple foods that can be used for many occasions.
  3. Plan ahead.
  4. Ask yourself, can you make a certain item on your own out of multiple ingredients? For example: Salad dressing, hummus, dips, soups, sandwiches…
  5. Refrain from buying large brand name products – Stick to store brands – this is typically the most inexpensive option.
  6. Do research to form your own opinion on the worth of organic produce.
  7. Never grocery shop when hungry.
  8. Don’t limit yourself to one grocery store – Branch out.
  9. Use coupons and look for DEALS.
  10. Download a financial planner app on your phone. (Check out Mint)
  11. Avoid purchasing foods that are pre-cut, pre-packaged or prepared in attempt to be more convenient (Ex: sliced breads, packaged fruits, packaged vegetables, meats, sandwiches, microwavable meals, etc). If you schedule a few minutes at the beginning of your week (we recommend Sunday night’s) to prepare foods the way you like them (slice, chop, cut, etc.), then you will have foods easily accessible for the week. It’s just as if someone at the store did it for you!
