  • Shop around and really do use advertised grocery store coupons!

  • Buy produce that is in season - it's cheaper!

  • Buy lower-priced store brands instead of name brands.

Food Stamps

If your income falls below a certain level, you may be eligible to receive food stamps from your local, state or Federal government.  Eligibility is determined by both gross and net income criteria.  Although state-run programs are more lenient in most cases, the United States Department of Agriculture Food Stamp Program may also be an  answer for Baby Boomers on limited incomes.
