2. Greek Yogurt

This is the perfect snack, and with a few nuts or pieces of fresh fruit it could be a dessert; or mixed with granola, it becomes the perfect breakfast! Most containers come in six-ounce or eight-ounce servings. You might save some money by buying a larger quart size and then simply spooning out whatever portion size you need. Individual servings run about 99 cents, and you might cut that down to about 75 cents if you buy larger containers.

 

3. Old Fashioned Steel Cut Oats

You cannot beat oatmeal for a healthy breakfast, muffins, homemade cookies, and even served with some jam as a dessert. On average, oats run about 13 cents per serving. Oatmeal is quick and easy, not to mention very versatile.

Yes, fresh veggies are best, but when the price is beyond your means, frozen veggies are a great deal! A one cup serving of frozen vegetables cost about 25 cents. Now you need to do some price shopping, as certain brands and sizes cost more than others. There is no difference between name brands and store brands. In fact, most name brand companies package the same product for store brands; they simply use a different package!
