The Three P's

Plan, Purchase, Prepare


Plan meals and snacks for the week according to an established budget.

􀀹 Find quick and easy recipes online.

􀀹 Include meals that will “stretch” expensive food items (stews, casseroles, stir‐fried dishes).

􀀹 Make a grocery list.

􀀹 Check for sales and coupons in the local paper or online and consider discount stores.

􀀹 Ask about a loyalty card at your grocery store.


Buy groceries when you are not hungry and when you are not too rushed.

􀀹 Stick to the grocery list and stay out of the aisles that don’t contain items on

your list.

􀀹 Buy store brands if cheaper.

􀀹 Find and compare unit prices listed on shelves to get the best price.

􀀹 Purchase some items in bulk or as family packs which usually cost less.

  • Choose fresh fruits and vegetables in season; buy canned vegetables with less salt.
  • 􀀹 Pre‐cut fruits and vegetables, individual cups of yogurt, and instant rice and hot cereal are
  • convenient, but usually cost more than those that require a bit more prep time.
  • 􀀹 Good low‐cost items available all year include:
  • o Protein — beans (garbanzo, black, cannellini)
  • o Vegetables — carrots, greens, potatoes
  • o Fruit — apples, bananas
  • Some meal items can be prepared in advance; pre‐cook on days when you have
  • time.
  • 􀀹 Double or triple up on recipes and freeze meal‐sized containers of soups and
  • casseroles or divide into individual portions.
  • 􀀹 Try a few meatless meals by substituting with beans and peas or try “no‐cook” meals like salads.
  • 􀀹 Incorporate leftovers into a subsequent meal.
  • 􀀹 Be creative with a fruit or vegetable and use it in different ways during the week.
