How Do I Realistically Cut Grocery Bills?

This question was shared by member Findingmyway in our How Do You Save? group.

After years of living with roommates and boyfriends I live alone. It's been a fun and scary experience and though it's more expensive than I'd like, I am now spoiled by my space and freedom. At the start of the new year I vowed to cut back on spending since I am paying so much in rent and I also vowed to eat healthier. The trouble is that healthy food is expensive! I've been shopping at my local health food store, Safeway (but being smart about what I pick up!) and Whole Foods and no matter what I do, can't seem to shave my monthly food bills down to $300. Do you guys have any tips for eating healthy — as in lots of fresh and local fruits and veggies, organic dairy and meat — without breaking a budget?
