After perusing the local grocery store ads, I've concluded that the bulk of our grocery shopping will take place at Ralphs this week. With $80 to spend for a week's allotment of groceries, this will be a challenging trip.
My first focus is finding the best values on meat. I already have frozen chicken tenders and sirloin patties, so I'm looking to round things out with some pork. Ralphs has pork roast on sale for $1.99 per pound and smoked sausage for $2.00 each. The next focus is on produce. The following deals on produce will round out the essentials:
- Green grapes - $.49
- personal watermelon - $1.47 each
- peeled carrots - $.79
- peaches/nectarines - $.79
- Mushrooms - $1.79
- Russet Potatoes - 2 lbs/$1.00
- Broccoli - $.99
Eighty bucks should be plenty.
