  1. Buy in season: Although most fresh fruits and vegetables are available year-round, many are less expensive when they are in season. All forms of fruits and vegetables are nutritious, so canned and frozen forms are okay too! To learn when your favorite fruits and vegetables are in-season, use this helpful link.
  2. Buy more: When fruits and vegetables are on sale, buy extra. They can be frozen, or you can prepare a dish to be frozen for dinner on a night when you are tired. That being said, don’t buy it if you won’t use it or else you will be wasting your money.
  3. Make a trade: Try to limit or avoid expensive snacks, desserts, and soft drinks that provide little nutritional value. That way, you’ll have extra money to spend on nutritional fruits and vegetables instead.
  4. Avoid hungry shopping: Don’t shop when you’re hungry. You might be tempted to buy things that are not on your list. If you buy a bag of chips on impulse, it could cost you $2.00 or more.
  5. Compare prices: Compare prices of different items. The larger size is not always the best price.
