It took me awhile to figure this out. I would see apples at a loss leader price and buy a bag or two. And then we’d eat them in a few days, and the sale would be gone. Now? I buy a lot. A few months ago it was five or six bags. But, thanks to my coupon buddy, I wisened up to buying a whole box!
Why bag up apples just so the produce man has to stock more apples on the display? Now, I just go straight to the guy and ask for a box of packed apples. They travel better, are colder and fresher, and save me losing apples all over the back seat of the van.
This is our second box of apples this season. At $.33/# for organic apples can I really go wrong? I don’t think so. I’ll be making applesauce in the crockpot, slab apple pie, baked apples, and lots of fresh apple slices for me and my peeps. In total it cost me $12.66 which I think is a great deal for about 40 pounds of organic, fresh produce.
How did you save money this week on groceries?
