Make Your Own Snacks 

Portion controlled products have exploded on the market and while they may be helpful to minimize overindulging, you don’t need to pay for the packaging. Buy your own snacks and pre-pack appropriate portion sizes in re-sealable plastic bags.

Buy Generic 

Generic brands can save you a lot! Typically, generic brands are labeled as the store brand. Whether it’s canned, bagged or frozen, the product usually contains the same exact nutritional value as the name brand.

Don’t Buy Precut Fruits and Vegetables 

If you do, you are paying for the added costs of labor for cutting and the container they come in.
