What’re the best tips to save money while eating healthy and buying groceries? I typically shop at Mom’s Organic, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.

But less/no meat, plan your meals and stick to that so you don’t let food go bad/have to throw it out, things like lentils/beans in bulk are super cheap, versatile. In a pinch prioritize what you don’t need to buy organic- avocados, broccoli, pineapple, onions, melons, sweet corn all contain the lowest pesticides.

Second the Costco! I buy a lot of my greens frozen and in bulk and then will periodically buy fresh meat or fruit or other things to supplement. But a giant 2 pound bag of broccoli at Costco might be 10$ whereas those smaller bags at the grocery might be $1-4 and it’s not nearly as much.

Shop at TJs first since it's cheapest, then at mom's and whole foods for everything else. Also cut down on snacks and extra drinks. And try to cook more and buy less prepared foods. It'll help save you money. And otherwise just remember that you and your body deserve the clean healthy foods and it's worth the money!

Make more frequent trips. Only buy produce you’ll actually eat. kinda meal prep based on the produce you’ll cook for dinner. Also fresh produce > canned/frozen!

Buy from Costco. Lots of frozen. Divvy up portions and meal prep. Can’t beat their prices and much of it is organic/clean.

Sweet potato, whole organic chicken and lots of greens. You can eat healthy from Walmart for 50 a week. Although I tend to not follow my own advice and break menu and spend a heck of a lot more than that.

I keep track of how much everything costs at TJs (I save my receipts and make a lists of costs) and plan my shopping list out based on my dietary needs and budget for the week, overall I can get everything I need and want for about $50 a week

$50 a week? Wow! What does that typically include when you’re shopping?

Checkout Laurie Christine King on Insta. She has amazing shopping lists for each of the different stores. It’s great

A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻‍♂️
