Last week I wrote about my buy price for meat. I got several requests to continue the series! This week I will tell you what my buy prices are for Dairy & Beverage Items. When I finish the series, I will combine the whole list onto one page for you.
If you are just joining us, we are talking about buying products when they are at their rock bottom price. The best way to save money at the grocery store is to track the sale prices and to buy items when they reach their lowest price. If you stockpile items at a low price, it will prevent you from having to buy when it is overpriced. An example would be Kraft Cheese. Kroger has Kraft Cheese on sale for $0.99 as part of the Mega Event. The normal price is around $3.50. Buy enough cheese to get you through until it goes on sale again so you don’t have to buy at $3.50.
“Buy Price” for Dairy & Beverages– Sometimes it will be cheaper than the prices I have listed below. Prices listed are after coupons.
- Cheese- bar or shredded, $1.50 (This week $0.99 so stock-up! It freezes.)
- Sour Cream (16 oz.), $0.50
- Margarine, $0.80-$1
- Butter, $1.50 (cheaper during holiday baking season)
- Eggs dozen, $1 (recently $0.88 at Harris Teeter)
- Yogurt Cups (6 oz.), $0.35
- Yogurt (4-6 pk.), FREE to $1
- Soda (12 pk.), $2.25
- Soda (2 ltr.), $1
- Orange Juice (64 oz.), $2
- Juice (64 oz.), $1-$1.50
- Water (24 pk.), $2.99
- Sports drinks/ Flavored Water (Gatorade, SoBe, Powerade etc.), FREE to $0.50
Remember that prices vary by region. These are prices I remember paying recently off the top of my head. What are some other items we can add to the list?
