I try to get the low sodium versions of the beans, I also rinse the beans which gets the excess sodium off of them. I have the staple things already in the pantry/fridge, like rice, more beans, corn, spaghetti, soy milk, ect.
This was $24.22 with the most expensive being the buns. Following with the kiwi. carrots, ketchup, mushrooms and blueberries. The least expensive was the cans of beans and corn, the potatoes, and green peppers. surprised that many potatoes was only 89 cents.
