How to make a grocery list on a budget

Groceries are a critical monthly expense for all families.

Essential staples for a grocery list on a budget

Eggs. Packed full of protein at a low price, eggs are the ultimate food for your list. With so much versatility, they make for a great meal any time of day. You can fry one for breakfast, boil one for lunch, and make an egg salad sandwich for dinner.

Apples. Cheaper than, and just as nutritious as berries, they are a great staple to make sure you are getting your daily fruit intake without breaking the bank.

Chickpeas and other canned beans. Legumes like these pack serious protein and other great nutrients at a fraction of the price of meat. Try adding them to your next chili recipe!

Chicken thighs and legs. Most people prefer chicken breasts over the legs. Legs and thighs are available at a lower price without sacrificing the flavor and texture you are used to enjoying. Best of all, they are easier to make. Simply coat with olive oil, salt and pepper, and then bake in the oven for an easy dinner.

Brown rice. With the price of wheat rising in recent years, this is the perfect time to try a new source of grain. Brown rice still contains all of the fiber, and other nutrients bread has, at a lower   price.

We hope this gives you some great ideas for getting your grocery list on a budget done right so you can eat well. See more ideas for how to save on food.
