And do you know what we discovered? First, fancy store has much smaller Rotisserie chickens for $.50 more. More money, less chicken? hunh?
But the real shocker came at the check out line. Fancy store has fancy prices… yikes!
Now I’m no math whiz but it’s looking like to me that the not so fancy grocery store sells the exact same items for $7 cheaper. And please don’t think Holly and I rigged this little experiment. There was no checking of sales fliers and careful planning involved here.
We just simply chose 2 new recipes and with no premeditation, happily went to both stores.
So, if the savings came out to be about $7 per $50 worth of groceries, let’s see how that nets out over time…
I spend about $200 a week on groceries. So, if I went to the less expensive store I could possibly save about $28 a week.
If I kept going to the less expensive store for a year… it would be a savings of over $1400!!!
Can anyone else but me think of some seriously fun places I could go spend $1400?!?!
I think I just might be forgoing the STARBUCKS tucked just inside the door with classical music playing grocery in favor of a vacation later in the year… with no grocery stores in sight!
Just my thoughts… What are yours?
