Welcome to Day Twenty Eight: Shop Ethnic Aisles of the 31 Day Series: Crush Your Food Costs
Did you know that you can find the same products in different areas of the grocery store? A store usually sells nuts in multiple places, the baking aisle, the snack aisle and the produce section. Prices for nuts in the produce section tend to be the cheapest.
Stores also sell staples like cans of beans in more than one aisle. So you’ll find beans in the vegetable or grain aisle as well as the aisles selling ethnic food.
Look at the beans I saw today at a local store.
Goya kidney beans are .79 cents a can while Bush’s are $1.19 for the same size can of kidney beans. That’s a .40 cent or nearly 35 percent difference. .40 cents may not seem like a lot but why pay more if you don’t have to?
Are you brand loyal or do you look for the lowest price?
