the way I offset the costs of fruits and veggies is by growing them. if you have so much as a patio, you can grow a container garden. Nearly all suburban families have a back yard. Even if you're an apartment-dwelling single, you likely have a balcony or patio or enough sunlight in a room to grow a few pots of things. Failing that, most areas now have community garden plots available. It takes less time than many people think, and the taste of a REAL tomato is so worth it! I have a year-round (cheap, homemade) hoop greenhouse. So i have fresh salad items all year, and I can freeze, can or dry summer harvests. I'm lucky - I live on 60 acres, so I have a fruit orchard and plenty of berries. But even without that, buying fruit in bulk at an orchard or farm market, then canning or drying it, is cheaper far than the grocery store.
