If your tax refund was unexpectedly high, you have our permission to ball out on every single expensive, kale-based juice and organic chip that Whole Foods has to offer. If you didn’t get as much back as you expected or, alternatively, if you just so happened to owe money to the government, you’re probably looking for some supermarket shortcuts.

Grocers like Whole Foods provide some of the healthiest food options that often come from reliable sustainable or organic sources. If you’re being forced to eat healthy on a budget, though, such supermarkets are probably above your price point.

We’ll show you how to work the supermarket system in such a way that will allow you to serve cheap meals that are as filling as they are nutritious.
