Eat healthy. Eating healthy is much less expensive than not - you eliminate the Starbucks runs, the ice cream cart stops and a lot of junk at the supermarket , and it cost much less (and is much healthier) to have a salad or yogurt with granola for lunch than it does to eat a sandwich or a burger.
When I have salad at work, I buy the spinach/greens at the store at lunchtime and bring in my own additions (peppers, onions, brocolli, etc.) along with my own dressing - much less than buying the whole salad.

This is sooooo true! However, most people think the opposite.
Meat of any kind, is an expensive purchase at the grocery store - so why not eliminate it - at least for some meals. Meatless dinners can be delicious -- try having one at least 3-4 times a week. Your grocery bill will be smaller and so will your waistline:-)
You make a good point. Fruits and vegetables are usually less expensive than packaged and processed foods and they are much better for you.
