I walk into the grocery store and manage to spend $100 without breaking a sweat.
I am not buying $20 aged cheese or $6 per pound peaches, but I am feeding a family of four. My son inhales 2-3 bananas a day (I am not joking) and I cannot keep up with his consumption.
It is important not to sacrifice quality simply because you are broke. Keep in mind that nuts are best in small quantities and are a nutritional powerhouse. One pound of almonds ($9) can go a long way if you are sticking to a one ounce portion (56 cents per portion).
This list is a group of snacks that are healthy, easy to make, and most are less expensive per portion than buying a small bag of Doritos (and much better for you – duh!):
What are your favorite budget snacks? Please share.
