1. Order Cold Cuts at the counter. ShopSmart found that cold cuts sliced at the supermarket were up to 31 percent cheaper than commercially packaged versions of the same brand

2. Hit the discount rack. Most people avoid the discount area in fear that it's not fresh...think again! Fresh fruits and veggies often are perfectly good, marked down to clear space for scheduled produce shipments. Other sale items might just be slightly out of season.

3. Shop the dollar store. Bread + Eggs are way cheaper there!
