How Do You Make Eating Healthy Affordable?

Because you're not about that drop-all-your-money-on-groceries life.

So you're trying out this ~eating healthy~ thing.

But you quickly realize that healthy food can be freakin' expensive.

And you're like "yo, I want to eat healthier but I can't be dropping all my dollar bills at Whole Foods, OK?"

So we want to know: What are your grocery hacks and tips for making healthy eating more affordable?

Like maybe you buy fresh produce from the bin — rather than the (admittedly convenient) pre-cut, pre-packaged stuff that's typically more expensive.

Or you buy certain items in bulk because it's cheaper in larger amounts and you know it won't go bad for a while.

And you buy other items in smaller amounts to use that day because you know they'll spoil quicker.

Maybe you have genius tricks for making produce last longer.

Or maybe realized you could get your healthy cooking staples for less if you bought them online.

So tell us: What are your tips for healthy grocery shopping while on a budget?
