How Low Can We Go?
Over the course of the last month or so, several people have approached me about whether the price they are seeing is a good price for a grocery item. And I am happy to answer those questions. If you are just starting to shop the sales and use coupons it can be very hard to know what is a good price for products. Realizing, of course, that product prices do vary by area. I can only speak for what I have seen here in the Dayton, Ohio area.
To make things a little easier for those of you in my surrounding area, I have made a “How Low Can We Go?” spreadsheet that tracks the least amount that I have either purchased a product at, or it’s listed sale price. NOTE: these prices will change from time to time and are not to be taken as the only price that you will pay. Also, in some cases, they are really low because I caught a great sale and had coupons. So don’t beat yourself up if you have to spend a little more than what I have listed here. Please also note that I have only included prices from Kroger, Aldi and Meijer. There are definitely more stores to shop that may have had an item or items on sale less than what I have listed.
My hope is that you can use this as a guide sheet when you are doing your shopping to know whether you are getting a good deal on your groceries.
If you have some prices you would like to share (and are in the Dayton area) please feel free to email me with them so I can update my spreadsheet. Likewise, I will adjust the spreadsheet if I happen to notice prices changing. AND if you are in another area of the country/world and would like to make a similar resource for Once A Month Mom’ers email me and I will see what we can do about providing regional lists.
