We live smack dab in the middle of two towns, so depending on what errands need to be run that week, I either shop at No Frills or the dreaded Wal-Mart. This week it was town "A" so it was the dreaded Wal-Mart's turn. Now one policy I do like with Wal-Mart is price matching and as long as I had the flyer from No Frills I was able to price match.
This week I stocked up on a lot of fruit and veggies, well a lot for me, so I thought we could compare prices. We are lucky (not sure if that's the right word) that we have access to most things year round, thanks to South America and the States. So here is a list the fruit and veggies I bought with their pricing beside them.
Bananas 67 cents per pound
Tomatoes 97 cents per pound
Cucumbers (English, not field) 97 cents each price matched with No Frills
340 gram bagged salad (iceberg lettuce, shredded carrot, red cabbage) $1 per bag
(I don't like eating salad greens I love iceberg lettuce, I know I am the only one!!)
Mushrooms $1.27 per 1/2 pound container
Green Pepper 97 cents per pound
Red Onions $1.97 for 3 pounds
Radishes one pound bag $1.47
Empire Apples 97 cents per pound
Strawberries one pound container $1.66 (price matched No Frills)
How do those prices compare with where you shop?
Also I ended up going over my $75 budget, and spent $82.63 which was flipping annoying. However when you buy fruit and veggies you can't always predict exactly how much they will cost. Oh and I used $1 worth of coupons!!! There were really no good deals that suited me this week. Will try and only spend $65 next week.
How did you do with your grocery shopping this week?
