Rising Food Prices

If you done any food shopping over the last two months then you have noticed the rising food prices.  You can no longer run into the grocery store and pick up a box of cereal without being in sticker shock at the price.  We won’t even go there about the eggs.

    Food prices are awful now, and not just in San Diego. In general, one of the first things I do at a store is to check clearance. Usually it is in multiple locations, a rack in the back for shelf stable items and then over in the refrigerated/frozen sections. I’m not looking for old food, instead I look for overstock items which are specially marked. Many times I find the identical item in its normal location which is 2-3 times a bargain I find in clearance.

    The other recommendation, of course, is to watch this website like a hawk 🦅. Be sure to exactly follow the instructions Ms. B provides. And if you see an occasional free or very low cost item that’s appealing they try to act quickly.

      Nick, I always look for the clearance foods! I go grocery shopping in the mornings, and I notice at my stores that they have the reduced priced meats on Monday and Friday mornings. Outside of the grocery stores, I think Walgreens has consistently have great food prices on basics. CVS used to have good food prices on cooking oil, parmesan grated cheese and food basic and then they seem to shift to offering lots of makeup which I assume that they get a nice mark up on makeup vice food products.

      I also suggest, if you find a good price on something that is eaten consistently like cereal for the kids that’s when you buy 20 boxes to stock up. We’ve got cereal for $0.49 a box, you go to a different store and sign up for a new loyalty card saying your daughter, sister, or cousin keep using your rewards and you want a new card. You must move differently when you providing for your family.
