Since my post, 30 Frugal Meal Ideas (for when you’re broke) has been so popular I decided to make another list of the most frugal and relatively healthy foods that money can buy. You don’t have to be broke to eat these foods, in fact my family eats them all the time because I like to keep our grocery bill low.
Basically every item on this list can be found for around $2 or less per pound. I hope to show people you can stay within your budget while still enjoying a healthy and varied diet. Also, you should be able to find additional in season produce for this price all year round such as citrus fruits in the winter, berries in the summer and sweet potatoes in the fall that are not on the list.
35 Frugal Foods to Buy When You’re Broke
Whole Wheat Pasta
Corn Masa Mix
Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread
Seasonings, (Salt/Pepper, Garlic Powder, Dried Herbs, etc.)
Do you buy these foods on the regular basis? What would you add to the list? I’d love to know!
