My tip is to be flexible and alway always check prices! I will eat most anything. My favorite grocery store has some of the best deals on produce if you can luck into them. I can get produce dirt cheap by looking at the prices and I check every time! (today scored brussel sprouts 40 cents/lbs, green onion for a quarter and organic leafy greens for 99 cents, usually costs three or four times as much!). I also bought 2lbs boxes of chicken breast for $1.99 because they were discontinued (usually $12). I have a place where meat is always cheap. I only buy yogurt if it's half off and/or have coupons to make it cheaper.
I also like to make soup a lot by using up my veggies that are starting to get to end of life. it is always an interesting concoction but cram packed with nutrition. I like to add a pouch of Knorr tomato vegetable soup as a base but a big pot makes about 10 servings so it goes a long way.
I don't eat canned food at all. I buy tomato soup for the kids and jarred pasta sauce and that's it. Beans are cheaper dried and don't take long to cook if soaked properly. I do buy big bags of frozen veggies as they are often on sale.
