Food-shopping tips are in the bag

Posted by Nancy Leson

Reporter Ron Lieber provided a great read -- and some savvy food-shopping tips -- in a "Your Money" column that appeared last weekend in the New York Times. For the record, the best food-shopping tip I ever got came my way a couple of years ago when I was gnashing my teeth at the supermarket while trying to open a plastic produce-bag. I was cursing those unyeilding rolls found in every grocer's produce aisle when a woman squeezing the avocados beside me said, "Here, try this." I watched as she wet her fingers on some damp produce, grabbed the plastic bag I was angsting over and -- voila! -- open sesame.

Got any food-shopping tips you want to share? Let me have 'em.
