BUY IN BULK! Well, maybe not quite as much as this shopper! Seriously, this may seem obvious when there is a sale for canned soup, etc. Don't overlook buying produce in season and either freezing or preserving it. For example, I buy peppers & onions in the summer, dice them up and freeze them for use throughout the next 11 months for seasoning a wide range of dishes, from soup to omelettes!
