TIP #22 – TRY ALTERNATE STORES LIKE WALMART/FRESH PRIDE OR WAREHOUSE CLUBS LIKE SAM’S OR BJ's
Several years ago, I made a trip to Fresh Pride and wasn’t overly impressed. But let me tell you, ours has come a long way since then. I still cannot get over the prices on their staple items such as bread and milk and the quality of their produce isnt bad. If you hate to coupon clip and watch sales ads, I would highly recommend you do the bulk of your shopping at a store like Fresh Pride.
Another path to check into are warehouse clubs such as Sam’s Wholesale or Costco. They usually put out free one-day passes where you can look around and pick-up any items you may need. You just have to be careful that you are really getting the best price for the amount you are buying. Some items are actually higher there. Overall, these places tend to be the most advantageous to those needing to buy in bulk.
By finding alternative stores to shop at, you can sometimes get really great deals and save on your grocery budget.
