I normally go to four grocery stores to get my shopping done but I knew that with a $15 budget Whole Foods sadly was out as well as Kroger so I settled for Cash Savers and the Viet Hoa. I shop at Cash Savers for my produce because its cheaper. When produce are close to sale by dates they mark them down.... drastically. One a good day I can get my mushrooms for 99 cents and other produce for 49 cents. Last week I got a BAG of blood oranges for $1.08. You can't beat that.
I go to the Viet Hoa for the same reason the produce is super cheap. There reason for cheap produce is because their traffic is so heavy and they stock only in season produce. I can get cilantro 4/1.00, limes 10 for $1 and roma tomatoes 79 cents a pound. Plus they stock all the Asian foods I need. Check out my receipts. I did go over my budget by about 27 cents but I can make that up next week.
That bag of green beans cost me 49 cents and the carrots 55 cents!! Crazy right. Since I took stock of the pantry before I left I saw that we had black beans and tortillas so I decided on DIY burritos.
My post may be a little limited due to the fact there will be a lot of leftovers and I am working on a new project. I will have a big announcement in about 2 weeks so wish me luck.
