In Response to Re: Finding a GREAT bargain in the grocery store.:
Bargains are there you just have to look a bit harder. Look in the individual departments for some mark down areas. Particularly the produce area. Look for "manager's special" tags or other indication that an item is reduced. I find tags on dairy and meat items. For meat items you have to be sure that you will use, freeze or cook and freeze very soon after purchase. And don't "lollygag" on the way home as it is best to keep the items as cold as possible. Also a bargain is not a bargain if you have to purchase so much that you can not use it all before it has to be discarded, if it is not a brand or product you will use. Because you have a coupon or an item is "on sale" if it is not an item you like or will use there is no savings in the purchase. Chicken breasts on sale may not be a bargain if you can buy a whole chicken and have more product for more recipes as well as a great soup base for much less than the price of chicken breasts. On the other hand the chicken breasts may be a better deal if you will never use the back, legs, thighs and wings.
