I second the advice on working the sales, but stay away from processed food, like cereal, which is usually expensive and loaded with sugar.
Do you have a freezer? If so, buy extra when things like chicken or turkey breast, or salmon filets are on sale and freeze the rest for later. Coupons for places like Subway are good, but buying a quantity of meat on sale, cooking it and slicing it up for 'lunch meat' is cheaper.
And nuts. Watch for low prices on raw, unsalted, nuts.
