    Aldi's is a great place to shop to save some coin.

    I do a lot of shopping in the produce section, and I cook stuff from scratch, instead of looking for convenience foods. Produce is the cheapest stuff IN the supermarket.
    Anyone who says you can't eat healthy on a tight budget doesn't know what they're doing.

    It helps if one puts in the effort of checking sale papers and going to different places for better prices. And using coupons. It may be more work, but that doesn't make it impossible.

    Basic staples are pretty much always cheap, and are generally a bulk buy, because you're not going to use them all in one meal.

    Even if you don't want to make yeasty bread, you can make biscuits and flatbreads and tortillas.

    Buy sale items in bulk, and then prep and store them. Basically, eating healthy on a budget just means learning the skills that used to be common to every housewife in the days before microwaves and convenience foods.

    Don’t use lard (Crisco?) in your tortilla press. 10 mil huge Mexican illegals in CA are living proof. Lord, I pity the toilets in those rentals. Beans and lard.

    This is all great guys.

    Now go get that poor person outta his food desert and over to the nice side of town where the discount stores are. Then teach him to bake bread. Then for an encore you can take him out to the countryside and teach him how to hunt.

    Food desert? Nice side of town where the discount stores are? Clearly, your mommy needs to take you grocery shopping with her once in a while. The poor areas of town are loaded with discount stores. The rich side of town, not so much, because rich people don't shop in them. Also, you don't need "discount stores" for anything that's being mentioned. I buy my groceries at branches of the same damned supermarkets that are in EVERY neighborhood in town.

    It's noticeable that your default is ALWAYS "do things for people, because I assume they're incapable of doing anything without instructions".

    Oh, WELL, if the likes of you just declares that I'm "totally and completely wrong" without any evidence, I'm sure we'll all . . . utterly ignore it even faster than we usually ignore your posts.
