Nine ways to save

-A A +A

• Eat with the seasons. Prices drop on fruits and vegetables during the peak of their growing season when there is a greater supply and demand. If possible, buy in bulk, then can or freeze for future meals.
• Choose organic strategically. Buy organic when the conventional item is high in pesticides.
• Partner up. Team up with someone else and buy in bulk, can or freeze together, or split shopping trips.
• Look for store brands, sales and coupons. Check flyers each week for sale items and search websites for coupons. Visit frugalliving.about.com for money saving coupons.
• End-of-market and in-store discounts. At the end of farmers markets there might be vendors that have unsold produce. Offer to buy a large quantity at a discount. Also, stores have areas with discounted items.
• Trade your time for farm-fresh food. Volunteer at a local farm or farmers market and come home with fresh picked produce and food in exchange for time.
• Don’t over buy. Buy only what can be realistically eaten. A lot of food budgets go in the trash because it spoiled before they could be eaten. Date food to keep track of how much time goes by before it can go bad.
