I started a price sheet a few weeks ago and have been taking note of sales at the local markets. On the way home from work, I can hit many supermarkets: Food Lion, Farm Fresh, Kroger, Games Market, Walmart, Super Kmart. I don’t usually shop at Walmart or SuperKmart but am rethinking the Walmart thing. Price matching for the win.
The cheap eats that I noticed this week* according to my handy dandy price sheet:
- Avocado at Food Lion for $.99 each. (Average: $1.99)
- Cantaloupe at Farm Fresh for $.88 each. (Average: $1.99)
- Chicken Breast, split, at Food Lion for $.88/pound. (Average: $2/pound)**
Footnote: Average is of the various local stores I check.
* Ends April 22, 2008 probably.
** Food Lion brand chicken is advertised as hormone and antibiotic free.
