  • Food Lion FTW! I’m so excited to see a youtuber that goes there and not just Trader Joes! (I don’t even think there’s one of those anywhere near me…anywhere lol) Their produce selection is pretty meh, but otherwise their prices really are SO much cheaper and the food is just as goodespecially for dry goods and basics like cheese. I’ve noticed a huge difference. When I utilize everything I have in my kitchen and shop to just supplement the different things I already have instead of doing meals where I’d have to buy everything fresh each week I’ve found it possible to do under $30/week at Food Lion (for just me). Their store brand of food is actually really good too!

  • The way you budget your groceries really depends on your metabolism or how much you eat. If you’re a heavy eater like me, there’s no way I could live with only $22. She can survive with that because she’s not a heavy eater. Just look at her body frame. I’m 175 lbs so I need more than that but yeah being broke is tough. I can’t eat what I want. I have to eat less so I can save money. I actually lost a little weight. I’m currently 165 lbs. I haven’t been working since June because I got laid off. Covid 19 sucks!

  • hey gals!! first of all.. thank you so much for 161K!!! it makes me so happy that this lil fam is growing ��

    today i’m back with a chilled out college grocery haul… this is how i eat good and healthy for $22 a week!! make sure you watch til the end if you want to see me whip up a few recipes with the stuff I got and lmk what some of your fav quick & easy dishes are!!

  • Americans use so much plastic�� if we get a cabbage we gotta carry it by hand.

    Also a tip for ur avocados. If it’s black then it’s ripe. And if u want it to ripen soon just wrap it in newspaper and in two days it’ll be ripe

  • love this video girl but please please don’t use plastic bags to bag your produce and if you need to, just use one bag for everything or even better buy reusable produce bags. with cabbage and cucumbers you might end up peeling the outside anyway and you can just wash the outside before eating it so it’s just a waste and plastic sucks!! please ❤️

  • If you have a Dollar Tree near you, you can get bags of frozen blueberries (and other fruits and vegetables, including a peppers and onions mix) for a dollar.

  • There is also a show all about cooking with food scraps called Scraps on FYI at 10:30 on Saturdays. It’s amazing what you can make with food scraps. This isn’t sponsored, it’s just a really good show.

  • I wish my family would listen to me when I say you can shop healthy on a budget. We always get something on the go after my practices, but it’s just not good for you, even if I get the healthiest option. It’s aggravating honestly, that I could be eating like this.

  • I just came upon your channel and I’m very glad I did! I’m a freshman in college and always looking for new ways to eat healthy on a budget, amazing tips!

  • Great video! FYI, watermelon doesn’t freeze. It’s one of the few that doesn’t. The texture gets all messed up, i suspect because of the high water content.

  • It’s my 1st time watching your videos and I really love them I’m on a weight loss journey Do you mind check in on my channel healthylifeever thanks

  • Hey just a suggestion, if you shop with your big reusable bag you dont have to put everything in plastic bags and you could find vegetables for cheaper that aren’t wrapped in plastic, it can save money and waste!

  • You shouldn’t shop when you’re hungry, but you also shouldn’t shop when you’re really full. I have made that mistake a couple of times, and went home with barely any food because nothing sounded good.

  • Another tip to add to making a list: plan all your meals for the week. Write down everything will need for those meals, so you don’t have to make a run to the store for one thing your missing. You end up coming home with more than what you need.

  • Ohh hun, I just cringed because literally every item except avocado came wrapped in plastic (which you still recommended getting it in a bag). I understand some of it is unavoidable, but a lot of it is definitely avoidable. Spare a thought for the future of the planet while doing your groceries.

    Great to see you eating healthy and well, I’m sure your viewers would love to see you now try and do it plastic free

    Not an attack, just food for thought. ��

  • Adrienne, I’m not sure how I just stumbled upon your channel, but I thought it was too funny that we’re both seniors going to UNCC! Good luck with finals!

  • What exactly is Custokebon Secrets? How does this thing really work? I notice many people keep on speaking about this popular fat burn secrets.

  • Candace, can you pleeeeeeeease make a long ass, in-depth video on your meal prepping (I’m talking 2-3 weeks worth) and what you eat daily/weekly. Maybe some shopping videos. Please and thank you!

  • I just recently moved to Florida from Australia and the food here is INSANE! There is just sugar in EVERYTHING!!

    Healthy food is expensive (well it is everywhere)

    I’m working for WDW and I was wondering if you could make more videos on:

    Healthy Food Recipies

    Best Places to go grocery shopping

    Because of damn girl.. the food here is insane!

    Much love,

  • My biggest cost saving trick: I buy a costco chicken about 3 times/2 weeks. 5 bucks, for a minimum of 3lbs of chicken (you can pick and choose the biggest chicken, which is way more than 3lbs). I carve it all at once, then we have sandwich meat, and ready to go meat to chuck into dinners. You can also make stock off of the bones and freeze it so you never have to buy chicken stock again. Yes, it is salty, I usually compensate by under salting other things.
    We keep it around 4-5 days, and it gets used for 1-2 meals most days. The fact I don’t have to take the time to cook/prep the meat, means we are infinitely less likely to say: eh, too lazy to cook. You can dress it up anyway you want, put it in noodles, over rice, in veggie hash, in an omelette, on pizza, in a soup, etc. It maybe nets out to 75 cents a meal for 2 people, even when I’m using it liberally.
    ONLY BUY ON SALE, unless you have no choice/it’s costco/TJs and sales aren’t much a thing. Know what the normal swing is for most of the things you buy, and only buy when it’s on the lower side (eg, if the sale is usually.10 to 1.50 off, don’t buy it if it’s.10 off). Buy a couple extra, and keep it in your pantry, since things like pickles and canned tomato don’t go bad, then when it’s the last jar/can or two, you have time to wait out for a good sale again.

  • Great video. I really needed the encouragement cus I’m currently trying real hauuuuurd not to eat out as well ask eating vegetarian

  • ellie this is so awesome. really cool of you to contribute to your audience what theyre asking for, this content is driven and so cool to see!!!

  • I watched you for a while on your old channel and then stopped for some reason, but I recently started watching you again and I’m SO FREAKING PROUD OF YOU!!!! you’ve turned into an amazing youtuber, you talk about so many great organizations and you help all the time in spreading awareness for so many things. love u lots����

  • This was extremely helpful. Like wow thank you so much, there were so many tips in this video that I didn’t even think of and I loved it!!! ����

  • Its still surprises me, how lots of people are not aware about Custokebon Secrets, even though lots of people get great results with it. Thanks to my mate who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I’ve lost tons of weight with it without starving myself.

  • Also keep in mind people that not only are premade things more expensive, they are never as healthy as making it yourself because of all the preservatives (like salt).

  • Technically, you are eating carbs, fruit and rice have carbs, but I get what you’re saying lol… very informative video… another way to do it is to go to Costco or Sam’s, buy in bulk and separate your meats when you get home, that’s what I do, and I meal prep for the week.

  • Thanks so much for the skillshare recommendation and free trial! The courses look really interesting and varied. As a uni drop out who now works full time this is an awesome resource to have on my tablet and phone to learn wherever. I’ve used coursea in the past and got bored with the variety and quality but this looks great. May even pay the £10 monthly free after the 2 months as I’ve already marked about 30 courses! Thanks candice! #notspons

  • I’m vegan and this is really helping me tbh ^^ like the organizing and stuff ^∆^ you’re always an inspiration. Love watching your videos! ��

  • THE BEST GREEN TEA IS FROM THE BRAND “TEAPIGS”. I’ve been a daily green tea drinker for years but I just found this brand and it doesn’t have that bitter nasty green tea taste like other lower quality green teas! It’s smooth and I use one pyramid tea bag a day because it’s loose leaf tea so you can make like three 8oz cups with one bag

  • Lol that intro tho ☺️ some of the best advice everdont go shopping hungry! And have a list or plan before* you go in! If you don’t know you want and need it beforehand and don’t know what you want, then you’re just susceptible to whatever they’re advertising and really, you’d buy and eat ANYTHING Bc you’re just hungry ;P

  • This video was so helpful! I feel like I waste so much money on food every single week because I don’t know how to plan out my meals well.

  • I worked in a deli that included a hotbar and cold case… Let me tell you, people shop hungry/lazy/stupid all the time. It’s sad because I’m in a college town and see kids multiple times a week paying waay too much. PSA: It is not healthier because it costs more. If the cold case has more than 15 things, 9/10 the bulk of it is premade (yes including that 4$ grilled chicken breast and that 6$ chicken cutlet and that 9$ salmon that all came in frozen). A box of instant mashed potatoes that makes 10lbs is 2$ while a pound of our (premade) mashed potatoes is 5$. You can buy all the fixings in your custom sandwich for the price of the sandwich. And my favorite…. only hot food has a shelf life of less than a day. You’re not doing yourself any favors coming in every day and getting the same salad “fresh” because 9/10 it’s the same salad as the day before (most of the cold food got 3 days. Chicken salad had 5!). Stopping by every once in awhile is okay, but Candace is right you could probably make your favorite things for less. It never hurts to ask, I gave people recipes allll the time and they were shocked at how simple a basic slaw or cucumber salad recipe was (our 10$/lb chicken salad only had 3 ingredients!!!!! Thats the cost of the mayo, celery and chicken to make 3-5 pounds of it yourself:0)

  • After becoming aware of the plastic epidemic, it is difficult to see all of the unnecessary packaging food comes in. The concept of the video is good but I know for a fact you can get a lot of that without all of the waste. ;-;

  • Mexican tip: AVOCADOS… if they’re not ripe when you bought them, wrap them in news-paper and then put them in a plastic bag with a banana, leave them inside the microwave (off obviously) the day before you wanna use them… Check them after 12 hrs BC they can be too ripe.
    If you want them to slowly become ripe, leave them inside the fridge in the same bag of bananas.

  • I love your relaxed energy and vibe in this video. Thank you for these great tips that I can apply to university (when I have a chinse, pizza, burger and burrito place 30 seconds from me). ��

  • Ellie I love your videos so much and look forward to watching them. I feel like you put so much thought into what you’re putting out there and really take time to edit your videos, not just throwing a video together having it be really choppy. Even though you only post once a week it’s always a thoughtful video and definitely shows quality over quantity!! I literally feel inspired after I watch your vids they’re just so genuine. Love it

  • Then there’s me over here, allergic to celery….and carrots…..and soy milk….and almond milk……and sweet potatoes…..and intolerant to asparagus. My struggle is real. Oh, and slow metabolism. I exercise daily 5 days a week, drink at least a couple glasses of water with each meal, sleep 8-9 hours per day, and still can’t find the right meal combo. Guys, we don’t have to give up EVERYTHING we love, only make a few switches to a few things over time. You can’t go out to the store and immediately love and eat this type of food planning, it takes time, a few months or more to get used to it. A glass of water is the first step for every meal, or at least a glass before/after bed to get you going for the day or flush out during the night while you sleep. Please eat something in the morning, sometimes I only get a surimi (crab leg), but it’s at least something to fuel you to lunch.

  • Great video bro, I have a question though, now that you made this video with all the materials is there anyway you could make a follow up video, but explain how many times you eat a day, serving size, etc. it’d be greatly appreciated! (Even if you don’t, still a huge fan)

  • Good job brother!!! I am so pleased to see this. I will definitely try and implement some of these ideas into my new grocery shopping hauls. Thanks for the guidance.

  • Can you do a video on some healthy meals that you make because I feel like I can never find good meal ideas and I feel like I always find myself eating the same meals all the time, thank you! Love you! ��❤️

  • I tried eating healthy. When I bought food for the next week I was very proud. However healthy stuff doesnt go too far. I ended up not having a thing in the fridge but hey, I got pretty ripped.

  • He could have gotten that for $30 and had ingredients left over if he’d gone for a big bag of rice and oats instead of little processed portions and frozen chicken instead of freezing fresh chicken?

  • Great video, you have a good voice for making this videos, if you use a mic of some sort, we could all appreciate your voice and videos better, good day friend.

  • It’s funny because I seriously was working out and my goal was to make it through watching this video without stopping, and to hear you give little words of encouragement towards the end was all I needed to complete my goal. Thank you so much!♥️

  • I just wanna say it’s awesome how many people are commenting on the amount of plastic you are using. Few years ago people wouldn’t have noticed how much trash this “haul” would end up in. It’s so great that people are taking the plastic epidemic seriously! As as a YouTuber who influences people, it would be awesome to see you make videos on how to save AND cut down on plastic because it’s 100% doable! Such as buying in bulk and reusing containers when shopping:) college kid who also tries to save every penny

  • Okay, the pictures looked amazing. BUT I have never seen someone look even BETTER in the video than their pictures. You are stunning.

  • I’ve been watching a lot of videos like this about eating healthy on a budget and a lot of people say $50-$60 a week is a low budget and I’m sitting here like… I only have $80 to spend on groceries for an entire month.

  • Not trying to hate at all but anyone else notice that the first like 15 things she pulled out of the bag is wrapped in plastic… ���� #zerowaste

  • Ellie I would love for you with this platform to go vegan.
    The dairy and egg industry is more abusive than the meat industry. You really should research the damage you are doing by continuing to consume those products. Mother cows are raped and impregnated then have their babies taken away as soon as they are born so they can’t drink the milk you want to. Baby male chicks are grinded alive as soon as they are born because they are useless to the egg industry.

  • Nothing expensive about being vegan. The least expensive items in bulk are rice beans quinoa lentils. Veggies are super cheap and tofu. No need to eat animals

  • Dude. I like JUST found out about the price per ounce thing a week ago! I knew it was per pound on meat but i never realized it was on EVERYTHING! U dont know how fired up i am about this. Ive been doing math in my head all my life figuring prices and doing mathematical calculations every single time i go to the store on almost every damn item when it was on the label already!!!!
    Ive worked at a grocery store for 4 years for christ sakes and never recognized this!!! And Im 28!!!
    I feel like the biggest idiot in the world. I mean i was hurting my head to do that long math my whole life once i knew how to bc i was like “no, i dont need a calculator, this is what i went to school for, i got this, plus itll make my brain sharper. Now, what’s 1/3 of 4.79. Multiply.33….”
    I mean������

  • Great tips, Candace! I would also say shop sales and clearance. If you see something in season, on sale, or on clearance, buy an extra if you can afford it. Then freeze or store. Love the bulk shopping idea. You can meal prep and still make it exciting! If you are someone who needs something different, consider this….chicken and rice for example: add different veggies, add salsa, add a whole wheat or veggie tortilla, add a few chips. Make freezer meals ahead of time and save a little bit for lunch the next day. So many options! Thank you, Candace! ❤

  • Does Custokebon Secrets really help to lost a lot of weight? We’ve learn a lot of good things about this popular weight loss method.

  • I’m curious, how much do you spend eating out in a week? And what percentage (roughly) of your calories come from eating out or buying snacks/drinks on the go? Thanks!

  • TIP: Beans. They have a fair ammount of protein, plus the texture is very versatile, they are super cheap and better for te enviroment and your wallet:D

  • Kudos for the video content! Forgive me for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you considered Dinanlinson Natural Beauty Approach (search on google)? It is a great exclusive product for learning what to eat to look younger without the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my buddy at last got astronomical success with it.

  • Some others that you didn’t mention. Shop sales, make your phone work for you and download those savings apps (Ibotta is a good one I love), If you like something alot but its expensive (HT) write the company an email expressing your love and thanks and SOMETIMES they will send you coupons (you may have to request them in the email). This is a big one… Don’t be brand loyal, a little secret? The store brand is NOT always cheaper! When you see a good sale on something instead of buying 1 calculate how much of it you will use in the next 4-6 weeks (most stores run on a 4-6 week cycle for their sales) and stock up. If meal prep is a hassle (altho lets face it, it’s totally worth it) the just start doubling what you DO cook. For instance I made sloppy joes the other night (NOT manwich we’re talking homemade packed with veggies and no ketchup) and I just made double what I needed and now I have a bag of it in my freeze for later in the week.

  • This was a good video for college students but I am laughing bcus in NY that would have came out to $60 with coupons. Where you from???

  • Damn that stuff really isn’t that cheap individually. I thought yoy would get a lot more for 44 dollars. If you go to a random fresh food market you can find way cheaper stuff. Or your just getting the more pricey versions of the food. But it’s nice to know I’ll be able to buy my own food for under 22 dollars a week In college.

  • I like this video, what I don’t like is the fact that planet lovers think they have a right to bash someone’s purchases, I myself try to avoid plastic and bring mostly reusable items everywhere but that doesn’t give me or anyone else a right to bash someone else.

  • I love buying frozen foods when I make my daughter’s baby food. It’s cheaper and I don’t have to worry about making everything right away in case it turns.

  • Bro I’m so picky and I already have always bought my fruits and veggies unpacked but i have limited meal ideas. I just be eating cucumber by itself

  • A trick for cherry tomatoes is, always slice them in half so you don’t get that squishy juice feeling lol especially in salads. (I hate that). If you are heating them up, halving them will drain some of the juice and reduce the acidity.

  • im like 210 pounds and 5’4 so im rly obese and dont get me wrong i dont eat too much i actually kinda dont eat at all but ive ALWAYS been fat like since i was born i was over the weight i should be and ive tried mutliple diets im currently on a diet AGAIN and im just gonna see how it goes this time:/

  • I know a good way to have a lot of money ready… when you have a lot of money don’t go and spend it soo… act broke all the time and then like once a week just splurge a little honestly it works really well

  • The thing that has helped me the most for shopping on a budget is setting a monthly budget and using cash only. That way I can track my grocery spending closely. It also makes me want to stick to my budget more because I know that when I am out of cash I just have to eat whats left at the house until next month.

  • Canned is okay for somethings.
    Canned Carrots is a no go!
    I love your channel…
    But I can’t stand “can” taste in my carrots.
    It just won’t wash out! Yuck!
    All tips are great tips though.

  • I pretty much no longer cook from boxes anymore. Learning that pretty much every sauce ever is just mayonnaise or greek yogurt mixed with stuff was a huge eyeopener. Also realizing I can make my own rice mixes changed my cooking style. I suggest checking out Jessica Fisher cookbooks on Amazon for cheap, easy, mostly healthy meals.

  • I freeze 90% of my left overs for the days I don’t feel like cooking or when I’m sick. Speaking of getting things and chopping them yourself.. I know prices are different everywhere but where I live you can buy a bag of frozen veggies for $1 so if you really don’t think you have time to chop veggies look in the frozen food section

  • Great tips, Candace! ���� Knowing how much food cost per ounce or pound really helped me with my grocery budget. Some stores sell certain items cheaper than other stores all year round too (e.g. Trader Joe’s). In addition, I check out the grocery store ads, see what’s on sale, and make my shopping list before going to the stores. The on-sale produce is usually in season so it’s a win-win. �� Could you maybe do a video on meal prep? ��
    PS: Love your intro! You’re like the Jiminy-Cricket-lets-eat-healthy voice of conscience! ❤️��

  • Great video thanks, like the “plug” with the cashier at the end!:D

    If you get the chance, would be great if you could check out the video on my channel about eating healthy:)

  • Sometimes, brands try to trick people into spending money in weird ways. For example, there is a brand of cheese that charges more per ounce for a big bag than for a tiny one. It’s the same product and it doesn’t make sense. If you buy 2 small bags(same amount as a large one) you spend less. But you have more packaging so it should be more expensive. Idk

  • I’m trying to eat more healthy now 2019 wasn’t such a good year for my health sooo.. imma force myself to stop eating junk food, sugar etc

  • Whats the point of having a personal shopping bag if you’re going to get everything wrapped in plastic? The video is great, just an observation though.

  • Totally had a dream the other day where you were talking about the healthier version of fav goods. It was pretty funny when I woke up and realizes it

  • Amazing video Ellie! Got so many tips from this video!�������� xxC

    (I’m a youtuber too and would love to support other channels!☺️��)

  • Hi Candace,
    as always: great video and good tips (I already live by all of these but other people do need the advice:))
    But the #ad was a little odd, imo. The product was not related at all to the video and you just randomnly mentioned it. If you want your ad to be a succes, you need to incorporate it into the video, so that the viewers become potential costumers through subcontious connotation. This will benefit you from a business pov (the better you do it, the more offers you get) and also us viewers because we don’t feel like we are just the target group for your ads.:)
    Other than that, your editing is not as good on the vid as on others, I think, which is extremely unfortunate on a video containing an editing app ad. Especially the “bam” sound on every key word put me off, it was too loud and harsh.

    I hope everyone recognizes my attempt at constructive critisism, no diffamation or hate:)

  • I just happened to come across one of your videos and liked it, so I checked out your channel. Can I just say that so far I really like your channel. You’re not annoying, you’re not loud, and you don’t talk like a prissy chick. Great channel, keep up the good work

  • Use the Flipp app. It allows you to compare prices at all of your local store prices for things. You can search specific things or just look at all the ads. Plus it’s free to get and use!!

  • great list. i just wish it was that easy to shop/eat healthy with food allergies (gluten, dairy, corn, potato & mushroom) so frustrating!!

  • I’m a year into being vegetarian and let me tell you its always a learning process! I am still learning how to meal prep, make things healthier, and more sustainable
