Winco does not publish ads. They have some figures on favado, but often they are not right.
We are very close to Winco and I know if the other stores are too high, I can probably fill on at Winco,
Such was the case yesterday. I went to Safeways, Hubby had to work, so I had little time left to go grocery shopping, I went to Safeways. Everything was really expensive. I saw no big bargains except fofor Foster Farms whole chicken for .88 a pound, I picked up some rice because I needed it, and some ice cream bars b cause the were the same price as Winco.
At Winco today, I finished shopping, We got some vegetables and fruit and I picked up pork tenderloin for two dollars a pound, Ot mad Mateo tenderloins for five dollars. I also got black beans for a lot cheaper than Safeways, as well as folders coffee. Saurkraut was a dollar and change in a jar.
We also went to Costco to buy the usual things that we get at Costco. Beer, bacon, bananas, blue cheese, I got granola, tomatoes, tortilla chips, Vitamins, over the counter meds with a three dollar discount and soda. My soda became contaminated when I dropped a glass on the top of the jar!
All the best sail things that are cheaper than elsewhere. It all ads up, but I only have to go once a month.
Knowing your prices, avoiding empty calories, high carb snacks, and buying when things are the cheapest goes a long ways to cutting your food bill on half.
We eat well. We eat a balanced diet. I don't cook everything from scratch every night. I batch cook. It's more efficient for me that way and we resort to take out less. We are the last thing from foodies, but I also feed us on less than half the USDA stats for poor people. We aren't eating rice and beans every night.
