A Little Grocery Shopping Help in Phoenix, AZ Area

If you are in the Phoenix, AZ area, this might be of help to you in your weekly shopping. For those of you who are too busy to peruse the sales ads and find out what is on special (and truly a good price:-), I am going to make a quick list each week (maybe twice since ads come out at different times) and post it here, as well as send it directly to those who wish to receive it in their email.

So, for the week of December 29, 2008, here are the best buys that I have found:

Food City usually has the best produce prices, so check there. Their ad is not out yet. And don’t forget 99 Cents Store for produce – they have great prices, too!

You will notice not much processed-type foods on this list. That is because I seldom buy them so am not an expert on what is a good price. Don't forget that WalMart price matches, just make sure it is the same brand. I have found that the cashiers usually keep the sales ads from all the competitors handy to look up prices, so you just need to mention them (from this list even) to get the better price.

If you would like to receive this in an email each week, simply comment on this post leaving your email address and I will add you to my weekly distribution list.

Hope this is helpful for some of you out there! Happy grocery shopping!
