I get asked two questions the most… How to save on meat and how to save on produce.  Since most coupons are for packaged items, saving on fresh produce can seem difficult. However, there are still lots of ways to save on produce.

Here are some ideas for your next grocery trip.

12 Ways to Save on Produce:

  1. Buy in season
  2. Shop local
    -Farmer’s Markets
    -Community supported agriculture farms (CSA)
    -Food Co-Ops
  3. Pick your own from a local farm
  4. Stock up & freeze extras (or opt for frozen/canned when appropriate)
  5. Use overage from other items and take advantage of any coupons you do find
  6. Ask for rainchecks when an on sale produce item is out of stock
  7. Buy produce from Aldi (they have some of the best prices)
  8. Price match local sales at Target
  9. Weigh pre-bagged produce to get the most for your money
  10. Shake off excess water from priced per pound produce
  11. Consider growing your own herbs and simple veggies
  12. Re-grow scrap vegetable pieces

If you are near Columbia SC, I would love to have you join the co-op we are a part of.  You can’t beat a laundry basket full of fresh veggies and fruit for $25.
