Some of the tips were very helpful others (reducing animal protein, forgoing highly processed foods) redundant with healthy food practices. Still, its always nice realizing you're saving money by treating your body and the environment in a respectful fashion.

The only tip that I thought was all that unusual was freezing milk and veggies before they go bad. I'll have to try that.

Some good ideas, most though I already use. Didn't like the suggestion about the large warehouse stores as most of them are huge corporate chains driving small business out of their communities. Also those discount food stores, just have to carefully look at dates or age of the product, also really check those list of ingredients in cheaper or bargain foods.

i may have to break down and buy a costco membership. i'm constantly surprised by the good price and high quality of many of the items my neighbor brings home. her family never eats organic, but she bought frozen, organic broccoli because it was as cheap as the non-organic. and the #1 ingredient in the cat and dog food is whole meat, unlike virtually every supermarket brand.

Thanks for all the tip. I really like the one about butter and cheese. Going to pass these tips on.

Great information. Thanks Cal. I believe Costco is a good deal. Granted, you have to buy some things in large quantities, but many can be split and froZen (cheese, etc.) so I believe it's worth it. NO to Sam's!
