Saving Grocery Money By Shopping For Value Foods

Posted on: 07/06/2012

It can sometimes be frustrating to realize how much you are spending on the groceries you are buying. After all, it can feel like you are spending lots of money and ending up with hardly anything for it, esepecially if you are shopping for a family! While it is important for you to get the nutrition from your foods that you need, it is also great if you can save money at the grocery store. By beginning to understand how to shop for value foods, you can eat healthy while starting to save money as well!

For breakfast, there are two great value foods to keep in mind: eggs, and oatmeal; both of these are extremely good for you, and both are inexpensive. Each of these is also a much better alternative to foods such as cereal and Pop Tarts that cost more money and are less healthy. If you choose to switch to oatmeal and eggs as your main breakfast staple, you just might be surprised by how much money you start to save.

Even though fruit is an important part of your diet, it can also be expensive – especially when it is out of season; one way to eat fruit and still save money is to buy bananas as often as possible. Bananas are usually inexpensive year-round, as you can typically find them for as little as 50 cents per pound! Bananas are among the healthiest things you can eat, and they are great anytime you want a simple mid-afternoon or mid-morning snack.


A great value food for dinner – one that is both healthy and inexpensive – is spaghetti. Even after you add pasta sauce, spaghetti is still a great deal; in fact, you can add a meat such as chicken and still get by without spending a whole lot of money.
