Your Basket on a Budget

The cheapest items to buy when shopping on a budget. 

Watching these inflation numbers go up up up gets us thinking about where we can save. Maybe you already are a savvy shopper, or maybe you don't know where to start...but you're in the right place. Here's a quick rundown on the most cost effective items to put in your basket!

1. Grains

Here’s the nitty GRITty (see what we did there) on grains! 

Rice comes in at our number one pick on a budget. This powerhouse grain can be a meal in itself or just a supporting side dish. Not to mention, you get an insanely high volume of food for such a low cost. 

Stop thinking that the only thing oats are good for is oatmeal. Oats are multipurpose- you can bake with them, have breakfast (like pancakes or overnight oats), fashion them into a savory side dish, or make your own granola!

We’re giving you yet another reason to pick up that box of pasta. This grain comes in so many different varieties- both shape and what its made from. 

Grains are extremely versatile, delicious, filling, and they cost next to nothing! Make sure to add these budget friendly all-stars to your shopping list. Save up to 70% on grains, here.

2. Canned fish 

Talk about protein overload! These bad boys are not only inexpensive but they also have a long shelf life. Did you know canned fish has the same amount of omega-3 fatty acids as a fresh fish? Save up to 70% on canned fish, here.

3. Legumes

Legumes are the perfect meat substitute, especially when looking to save some extra cash! Canned beans are tried and true while dried lentils are SO underrated. Whatever your stomach is craving that day, your bank account will surely thank you :) Shop all beans at Martie, and save up to 70%.

4. Yeast

Yeast? Yeah, we know it sounds a little out there, but trust us! Yeast is the main character in our favorite carb. Making bread is super easy, needs minimal ingredients, and wicked cheap.
