What's the best way to grocery shop cheaply?

Really can't expound on it much more than in the title. I'm a college undergrad soon getting ready to move out and transfer out of state. Things are going to be tight, depending on whether or not I decide to get a part-time job or not.

But I've always wondered about the logic that buying from scratch-made items and making your own is REALLY cheaper than buying the already pre-made substance in the store. (For instance: i 5lb. bag of flour versus already-made bread product or raw/canned tomatoes + spices vs. pre-made bottled marinara)
