1. Stock up on freezable items

Stock up on things that freeze well, like berries, green peppers for fajitas, discounted and sale meats. This will help you have some options when you forgot to plan for dinner or had a busy week. 

2. Explore other sources for meat

Do some research to find out if there are any butcher shops, farmers, or meat lockers in your area that sell meat below the grocery store price.

3. Buy ends

Need lunchmeat? Many delis will sell you the lunchmeat ends for far less than the price of a pound of deli meat. Ask, and you may net yourself a real deli deal.

4. Buy reduced price

Many grocery stores have discount produce racks where they sell bruised bananas, apples, and other damaged fruits. These are still great to eat, you just have to cut the bruises out, or freeze them and just toss them in some smoothies!

5. Do the trim work yourself

Meats that have been sliced butterflied, cut into tenderloins, or made into patties cost more than meats that haven't; so, buy simple cuts, and do the trim work yourself.
