Frugal Ways to Save Money on Fruit and Vegetables Produce

If you are on a tight budget or a frugal minded homesteader then trying to save money while shopping for fresh fruit produce, you may find it challenging but totally possible. Some options are common sense while others take some creative planning.

  • Talk to your friends, family and neighbors and put the word about town that you would love to barter for an extra surplus from their garden or fruit tree harvest. Does a neighbor down your street have a tree where the fruit just goes to waste ? Knock on their front door and ask politely if you can pick their tree. 9 times out of 10, they will be thrilled not to have to pick up the mess in their yard.

  • Pick Your Own – Head to a pick your own “pick your own” orchard and pay less the 50%.

  • Buy in bulk and watch for on sale items. Pull out your water bath canning equipment, food saver and dehydrator so you can dry, freeze and put up your surplus of fruit.

  • Join a farmer’s Co-Op, pay a monthly fee and each week an overflowing box of fruits and vegetables will be waiting for you to pick up. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) helps support local farmers and saves your family money.
