Since we are all here to save money one thing I will suggest is buying blemished vegetables. I love to make tomato sauce and Incorporate tomatoes in a large variety of recipes. If you are going to use tomatoes on a sandwich or to enhance a salad then of course you want to have a healthy looking red tomato. But if you are going to cook them, there is no excuse or reason to spend hard money for the beauties! Look for blemished ones and if they are not already bagged up talk to the grocer and make him an offer. Chances are you can save up to 50%. The market sure will not make a profit if they are tossed out and since you are cooking them it does not matter as most of the skins will be discarded anyway!
