Lots of people complain about how expensive fresh fruits and vegetables are.
I say: BUY THEM ON SALE!
Why, you may ask? When a grocer does an advertisement for a fruit or vegetable, the grocer needs to plan ahead and order more of that product. They also need to keep in mind what is in season at the time of the ad. Because of the lower price, and the seasonality, the items sell faster in the market and therefore keep more of their fresh taste.
The fact that it is more budget friendly makes it taste better too, even if it is only in your mind and in your wallet.
Take advantage of sales, but don’t buy more than you can use in a short time. That is what is meant by penny wise and pound foolish.
