Good Buys on Grocery Items

24 Jul

I am always interested in finding what the “best buys” are in the grocery store. I got this list from http://madamedeals.com/. My advice is to print this list off and carry it with you in the store. That way you can compare and make sure you are getting the best deal. As stated on Madame Deals, prices can differ depending on stores and regions. Some of these prices are the price after coupons, if they were available. I hope this list will help you out each time you go grocery shopping!!

“Buy Price” for Pantry Items– Sometimes items will be cheaper than the prices I have listed below. Prices listed are after coupons.

  • Canned or Pouch Tuna, FREE-$0.50
