How to save money on produce this month

Since the downturn, the Canadian dollar hasn’t been at its best and a lot more things are more expensive than they used to be.

Fresh produce, something that has seen a price increase this year, is something we regularly import from all around the world. Kiwi from New Zealand, oranges from Florida and tomatoes from California.

One of the best ways to save money on your produce is to buy what is naturally in season! Simple supply and demand brings down the price of seasonal fruits and veggies so you get freshness for less!


On average, Canadians spend only 14.2% of their income on food, the 2nd lowest in the world.

What are your tips for saving money at the register?

    Army & Navy has canned baked beans on sale, and when combined with a $1 off coupon on Flipp are 29 cents a can 🙂

    I buy meat when it’s on sale, and then I freeze it. Even the 30% off packages at Superstore can be frozen and used at a later date without consequence. It can add up quite quickly.

    Cauliflower might be in season but at No Frills it was selling for $5.48 each! For many months, fresh cauliflower has been way overpriced. A tip for a small household like ours — buy frozen vegetables & fruit — at least that way, if you can’t finish it, it doesn’t go bad.
