You may not think of going grocery shopping at a Drugstore. However, Shoppers has lost litre sales quite frequently. That's when you should head on in and stock up on the deals for your pantry or freezer. Until close tomorrow, Shoppers has Delicsso pizzas on for $3.99. This is a great thing to have in your freezer for a night that you need a super fast meal, need something for school lunches, or you are invited to a pot luck.
Shoppers is also having their 2 kg Sugar on until June 10 (so the sign said in the Charlottetown store) for $1.99. That's much cheaper than the grocery store.
But, here's the thing: This Saturday their sugar is going to be on for $1.79/2kg! There's a limit of 4 per visit. Take your spouse, your children and yourself in and stock up. This is one item that we have been ensured is going up over the next several months.
Shoppers is also having their butter on sale this Saturday only, for $2.99/lb (limit of 4)! After that the price is $3.49 (which is their sale price this week). Yes, I am making room in my freezer.
The last thing that I see that's a great stock up item is Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal. It's on for $2.49, plus take any coupons with you. There is no limit stated in the flyer for this item and it's on all week!
This is just one way of helping yourself out with rising food costs. You see what you regularly use and when it's on sale, you stock up. Find a shelf, put it in the basement, closet, or a section of your cupboards and make room for items when they are on sale. Your budget will thank you.
What are you doing to beat the rising cost of food?
Enjoy your day!
