Shopping around is another good way to save money. There's three stores around me, and often times I find something cheaper at one store than I do the other. It's time consuming, but you'll save cash (unless you're burning gas to get between stores).

That's true. At least during college, I just bought the stuff on sale. I didn't have the means to get from store to store to shop for prices. I ended up shopping at Giant all the time.

Also, you could try stores that aren't necessarily American. I.e. H-Mart is a good place to get vegetables. I find that they have much greater variety and can be cheaper too.
