Want to save money on your vegetables? Love em or hate em, it’s subjective, but vegetables can provide so many health benefits that they are hard to ignore.
At mySupermarket we’ve read countless news articles explaining how purchasing fresh and healthy produce is just too expensive and out of reach for many average families. So, instead of grabbing a bag of crisps over an apple here are some top tips on how to add more fruit and vegetables into your diet, in a cheap and still cheerful way!
Make yourself a ‘quick list’ of the types of produce you are interested in and hit the search button.
You’ll immediately see all your favourites on one screen with offers and cheapest items easy to spot.

It’s easy to get into the habit of discarding vegetables that look like they have seen better days.

Vegetables in this form can be turned into tasty soups, pasta sauces or even roasted nicely in the oven.
