Grocery Prices

Just participating in a blogger based survey. I have started using coupons again to help stick to the budget but mostly only for items such as canned soup, cereal,snack bars, and tolietries. We don't buy a whole lot of processed foods except those listed above. I have mainly been shopping at SuperTarget, Woodmans, and Sam's/Costco lately with a few stops at the local independent grocer.

Gallon of Milk - $2.99
5lbs potatoes - $2.50 on sale
price per lb for fruit -
apples - $1.49 on sale
oranges - $0.99 each
bananas - $.50lb
grapes - $1.49 on sale
average price for produce (per lb) -
lettuce - I usually buy salad mix when I can find it for $2.50 or less. I bought a two pack of iceberg at Sam's for $1.98
cucumber - 2 for $1.00
tomatoes - $1.49 on sale
carrots - $0.75 for a 1lb bag of whole carrots on sale
box of KD - $1.45 a box... I was shocked and the store brand wasn't much less
frozen corn, small bag, think it is 16oz, $.89 for store brand
coffee tin, 1lb of beans $6.99
toilet paper, 12 double-rolls - $6.99 or $14.00 for 36 double rolls at Sam's

price per lb of
ground beef $2.80 on sale or at Sam's club/Costco. I prefer at Sam's because they have a leaner type available
chicken $5.99 for a 3lb bag of frozen breasts
pork chops $2.49 a lb unless I stop at Jewel when on sale for $1.00 each
ham $5.00 at the deli counter
roast beef $7.00 at the deli counter
block of cheese 8oz block for $1.50
lb of butter or margarine $2.79
pkg of cookies like Oreos $3.50
can of beans $.77 on sale
can of tomatoes $.77 on sale for 14oz but I tend to buy at the local grocer for $.99 for 28oz for store brand
pkg of pasta (put in size) 1lb box of store brand $0.89

The lowest gas price I saw today was $3.44. I filled up Wednesday for $3.59.

I actually saw a low gas price today at a local station...$3.19 per gallon! Wow! :-) I didn't know it was capable of getting that low. ;-)

Holy smokes! I want to buy toilet paper for those prices. Thanks for participating!

Kristi said...

Seriously? Your gas is still over $3? Our is around $2.91.

Yep, I drove into the City today for an appointment and still saw Regular for $3.99 a gallon. On the radio they are saying that the lowest local price is currently $3.23 so enjoy that price with a $2 in front of it :)
