Eat healthy on a budget: 7 ways to be a grocery guru

(Continued)

BIRMINGHAM —

It’s all in the family. Shopping at bulk stores such as Sam’s Club or Costco may be the ticket for you if you have a large or growing family. Because they last much longer, canned or frozen fruits and vegetables can be bought in large quantities when they are on sale. 

Grow your own. Planting your own garden is an environmentally friendly way to bring veggies into your kitchen. It’s also a very money-friendly option if you plan to use them in your everyday cooking.
