    And none require buying anything day old or suspiciously on sale. In fact, a few simple shopping adjustments will really make a difference to your wallet. Here are some ideas from shine.com:

    1. Shop the Outer Aisles

    In most markets you’ll find the healthiest ingredients on the perimeter of the store—fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins including fish and chicken, and fat-free and low-fat dairy products. The inner aisles contain most of the processed foods, including soda, candy, chips, and snack foods. Aside from the fact that they contain empty calories, they also take a big (and unnecessary) bite from your food budget.

    How to outsmart your cravings

    2. Buy in Bulk

    Bulk items are usually cheaper. That’s because there’s no expensive packaging included, so those savings are passed directly on to you. You also have the freedom to choose how much or how little to buy. Best buys include whole grains, dried beans and legumes, nuts and seeds, and cereals. Some health food stores sell spices in bulk as well.

    3. Go Seasonal

    Out-of-season fruits and vegetables are sometimes imported, expensive, and often tasteless. Plan menus and choose recipes around what’s currently in season. You’ll enjoy better flavor and lower prices anytime of year. (And yes, there is good in-season produce in late winter—citrus fruit, anyone?)
