- Buy the Basics: Rather than get caught up with all of the shiny, expensive new gluten-free items your local grocery store has started stocking its shelves with, stick to the basics. Vegetables, fruits, fish, meats, brown rice, potatoes, corn, quinoa, and nuts are all gluten-free, so try getting creative with foods that are gluten-free to begin with.

- Buy in Bulk: If you're able to buy dry gluten-free goods in bulk like canned goods or cereals — bonus. If you're able to buy these items on sale — double bonus. If you see gluten-free pastas for a good price, scoop up a bunch, since it's always good to stockpile g-free pasta. You can even go online and check out sites like Abe's Market or Amazon, where you can buy items in large quantities at a discounted price.
- Make Your Own Baked Goods: The price of gluten-free baked goods like breads, muffins, cupcakes, pie crusts, and pizza dough can make your head spin. If you're able to invest in a bread maker, you will save a ton of money making your own bread. And with a little practice and some g-free baking essentials, you can whip up your own cupcakes, cookies, and muffins in no time — at a fraction of what it would cost you to get them from the store.
