Save in the produce aisle
Go big. Found a large bag of vegetables on sale? Grab it, even if it’s more than you need. Use the extras to make soups, stews or
a healthful frittata for a weekend brunch, or chop and freeze in airtight bags. Get more stockpiling tips with our easy guide.
Swap colors. Orange and yellow bell peppers are significantly cheaper than their red cousins, and they’re only slightly less sweet. If you’re making a recipe that calls for red bell peppers, save some money and go with a different hue.
Stay clean. Visit foodnews.org for the updated Clean 15 list of produce with the lowest levels of pesticides. You can save money by buying non-organic versions of those. (Consider getting organic versions of foods on the Dirty Dozen list.)
