Wise Food Buying

1.      Plan meals for the week  (review USDA recommendations to make sure you are getting all the nutrients and protein your body needs)
2.      Clip coupons
3.      Check supermarket advertisements for sale items (use with coupons to get even better savings)
4.      Beware of items at the end of the aisles. They are there to entice you and not necessarily a good buy.
5.      Buy vegetables in season when they are priced lower.
6.      Read labels. The first item on the contents list means there is more of that item. Avoid foods with a lot of additives.
7.      Avoid convenience foods (these are more expensive)
8.      Don’t go to the store when you are hungry

9.  When comparing prices, compare the unit price. Although containers often look the same size, they often aren't.
