Usually that is the place for dairy. Milk is often a dollar for regular or chocolate . Sometimes sour cream and cottage cheese are 1.00 or 1.25.
I can get butter for 2.50 all the time at Costco. I would rather pay 2.00, and have been finding it here and there, mainly Safeways and grocery outlet.
Cheese has been close to two dollars a pound. Watch closely the small packages, what sounds like a good deal, really isn't, Fivenpoumd sacks are around two dollars a pound to 2.35 at Costco, Sometimes business Costco is better.
Eggs are cheap these days, I have been getting them at Safeways for .78 a dozen. Drying eggs is a royal pain, but it will help when the price goes up.
You can usually find ice cream coupons.
