You can also plan meals around ingredients that are on sale, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins like chicken, fish, and beans.

Buy Bulk

Items like rice, pasta, and beans are often cheaper when purchased in large quantities, and they can be stored easily in your pantry for future use. You can also stock up on canned goods, such as tomatoes, broth, and fruits, which have a long shelf life and can be used in a variety of recipes.

Cook At Home
