A looooooooooong time ago when I was a reporter at the LA Daily News I created a list of low grocery prices for my readers. My theory was, and still is to this day, that if you know what a “good” price is for the items you buy most often, you will know when to stock up and when to push the purchase off.
Knowing what a “good” price is on the dozens of items you regularly buy will save you money. But it’s ridiculous to cram all that pricing info into your head, so I wrote it out after comparing prices at four grocery stores.
I’ve revived that list because many readers have asked for help lowering their grocery bill. This is my answer. I hope it helps you save money!
I left the prices blank for two of the items that I wasn’t comfortable pricing, lettuce and rice. What do you consider a good price on these items? What additional grocery items should I add to the list?
