How To Shop For Healthy Groceries On a Budget

This week's shopping tip:
Shop the outer aisles of the grocery store first.
Most of us head into the grocery store and start at one end and make our way through all or most of the aisles until we get to the opposite end. But if our goal is to buy healthy or better for you items, we need to change our shopping pattern to shop the outer aisles of the grocery store first. Why? Because that's where we'll find the majority of our healthier choices: fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh meats, and dairy products. And that's where we should be spending the majority of our grocery budget.
Pound for pound we'll see that much of the packaged and unhealthier foods can be actually more expensive. Compare the cost of a bag of potato chips, for example, to the cost of a pound bag of raw potatoes. See what I mean?
