In Response to Re: Finding a GREAT bargain in the grocery store.:
I love Grand Openings the prices are good but seldom do they last. I do what I call "cherry picking" when it comes to sales I will get the sale prices at one store then go to another store. It is pretty easy since shopping is one way to get my husband to walk so I do several short shopping trips a week then one day that he is in Adult Day Care I will do the majority of shopping. It is sad to see big stores crushing little ones but I have to shop price and the little guys just can't buy in the volume that will allow them to meet prices. I do wonder what will happen now that our Dominick's will be leaving many of the markets. The one store that I do hope comes to this area, Mariano's, is a Roundy's store so with luck they will make it into the area. Funny thing is I once heard that the guy that started Mariano's said he wanted to put Dominick's out of business...well he accomplished his task in a very short period of time.

I also "Cherry Pick" you almost have to to be able to eat well.There are five stores that I go to all within a short distance to the other,so I'm not wasting gas.Last week and this week I recieved a coupon from the new store Good Cents for $10 off a $20 purchase.They have ground chuck this week for $1.88 a pound so I'll use this coupon on the ground chuck.I'll repack into freezer bags in meal size packages.
