I suggest along the same lines as John. I eat a lot of celery and nut butter (peanut butter with no sugar added is cheap), salads with homemade dressing (herbs, oil, vinegar, yum!), eggs, tuna, etc. Think basic dishes and inexpensive produce. But meat and cheese that is marked down as soon to expire and cook it up or freeze it when you get home - that saves you 50-70% right there, depending on the product. Keep processed foods to a complete minimum, I can stretch my family's dollar a lot further with $100 of chicken thighs, root vegetables, and salad fixings than I can with frozen entrees, prepackaged beverages, chips, etc. More nutritious and less expensive.
