Welcome to 10 Days of Gluten Free! Every day (Monday through Friday) for the next 2 weeks, I will be doing a quick post with a new money-saving tip each day. I am participating in this blog hop with 9 other fabulous bloggers who will all be doing posts on different gluten-free topics. They are:
Getting Started – Linda @ The Gluten-Free Homemaker
Resources – Wendy @ Celiacs in the House
Traveling – Karen @ Gluten-Free Travel Blog

Cooking – Carrie @ Ginger Lemon Girl
Baking – Jules @ Jules Gluten Free
Kids – Lynn @ Lynn’s Recipe Adventures
Lunch Boxes – Tessa @ Tessa the Domestic Diva

So without further ado, here’s my tip for today:
Looking to save some money while eating gluten-free? Go for your fruits and veggies first! Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. It’s healthier (look at all that great nutrition you’re getting!) plus you’re avoiding the marked up prices most people pay for convenience food. Create the bulk of your meals from fruits and veggies, then if you have extra money, add in a few convenience food “goodies”.
If you can find a local farmer’s market, you will pay even less for your produce, as much of the high cost of food comes from transporting it to your town! If you can buy locally you will save money and also help support your local community. Our local farmer’s market regularly has bananas for $0.29 a pound, cucumbers for pennies, and lettuce for a fraction of the grocery store price.
