Plan Your Meal By What’s On Sale!

As you’re writing out your weekly meal plan, remember that there are some items that are always going to be on sale at the grocery store. This month, college basketball’s March Madness, so there’s going to be lots of great deals on classic ballgame-watching foods–chips, dips, veggies, cold cuts for sandwiches, and ground beef.

Seasonal fruits and veggies items on sale: fresh strawberries, naval oranges, limes, lemons, cuties (kids love these!), avocadosasparagus, broccoli, green peppers and cucumbers .
