That has been my rule for fresh produce and it seems to generate the most questions for me.
It is easy to eat fresh fruits and veggies for that price point – here is a simple list from just Sentry Foods, right out of their sale flier:
Iceberg head Lettuce $.89 each (weigh them on the scale to get a heavier one – is has more lettuce!)
Roma Tomatoes $.89/#
Gala, Red or Golden Delicious Apples $.99/#
Bananas are ALWAYS under my price point.
Now let’s look at Copp’s:
Gala or Fuji apples $.99/#
Rio Red Grapefruit $.69/#
Extra fancy navel Oranges $.70/#
That’s it. They are pretty high priced on produce this week
(did you know this is owned by the same company that owns Trader Joe’s?)
Grapefruit. $0.29 each…2 should = 1 #
Pineapple. $1.69 each. We have seen these cheaper but it should be 2# +.
Navel Oranges. $0.50/#
It looks like citrus is the hot buy right now – and good timing too if you are like me and having a sick little person every other week from school (ugh!)
Keep in mind I ONLY went through a few store circulars – you WILL see other items in that target price range when you are actually in the store.
I hope that helps you!
