Tina McGeough, a Stop & Shop dietician, says the best way to get the most out of your shopping is to plan. She says a shopping list can help keep you on track for what you're going to use and need for the week—while also preventing food waste.
McGeough says beans are a great source of protein and fiber, which are important elements in a nutritious diet. She also mentions fresh produce, frozen, and canned options all offer the same nutritional value—it comes down to your preference and your budget.
McGeough says joining loyalty and discount programs at your local supermarket are also ways to find coupons and save more at the grocery store.
