I shop based on what's on sale....hardly ever buy something not on sale or at least use a coupon. We are not big meat eaters but try to eat some chicken and turkey...and little bit of seafood...someone once said we don't eat 4 legged....not sure I love that term but it's accurate....that helps with $....any meat we do buy has to be on sale.
Also shop on days that double coupons up to $2.00....which is awesome!
Also also...shop at Aldis....they have amazing prices on fresh veggies, fruits and some canned goods.

Plan meals around what is on sale, use coupons.

I look at the sale flyers and plan around what items are great deals and what I have on hand.

I am addicted to the Sunday salespaper! I study the prices at the stores I frequently shop and I clip coupons and use them.

I think meal planning is a HUGE plus! I try to buy for 2 weeks worth of dinners and use as many coupons as I can find. I see a few people have posted they go to Aldi's...they just open 2 brand new stores near me...went in once and did not think the prices were that great...at all. A few things here and there but for the most part alot of the products were smaller packages so the price is lower but you aren't really getting a deal...IMO.

I totally recommend it.  Herbs are the easiest thing to grow.  They are fairly weather resistent and when they die you can used dried anyway.   We live in CA and I planted herbs as part of drought tolerant landscaping.  It is
so nice to always have fresh herbs available, plus they smell good, attack humming birds, bees and butterflies and are a natural fly repellent.
