  1. The farmers market near the end of the day - they slash prices because they don't want to transport it back.

  2. Eat a vegetarian diet. Good for the environment as well as a lot cheaper.

    4. It's not completely good for the environment. You still require water, pesticides, and processing energy to make certain foods.

    2. @3a: Yes, except now he wears another sweater. Still headbutts people and grabs 15 slices of campus pizza each time.

  4. Shop only at Food Basics, No Frills and FreshCo. You're too poor for Zehr's, Sobey's and Valuemart (misnomer).
    Check out online Flyers.
    You can Go to Real Canadian Superstore with flyers from anywhere and they will price-match, that way you can get some decent quality items for bargain store prices.

    Some things are cheaper to make from scratch.

    1. zehrs and sobeys are not that expensive, the same items at both stores are often the same price, or within a 10% difference. Zehrs also has better locations, and the student discount. The time saved going to the zehrs/sobeys will more than compensate for grocery cost savings at the cheaper stores.

    2. Sobeys offers a discount as well. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 10% off.

    4. Plus they have better produce! Buying produce from no frills or food basiscs always ends in regrets.

  7. use canned food to supplement the fresh stuff. for example, things like canned lentils and beans are great sources of protein, and can be added to cheap recipes to bulk them up. you can make things like pasta salad pretty inexpensively, make lots of it, and add chickpeas to it as a source of protein instead of meat. also, if you have the storage room, try going to the wholesale club and buying meat in bulk. it's cheaper to buy in bulk and freeze it in portions than to buy individual ones. ground beef or chicken is a good choice.
    also, here's a great website with cheap meal recipes.

    most of them are for family sized servings, but that's kind of a good thing. learn to embrace leftovers!
