I just wanted to take a quick minute and share one of my secrets to savings a little money on produce...
I sometimes find (after doing all the math of course) that buying a big bag of something is a better price per pound. Just today I bought a 5lb bag of carrots for $2.99 That is .59c a pound verses the 1lb bags that were .79c !
Here is my trick. Have you ever thought to weigh those bags???
I weigh all sorts of stuff that is "bulk" I weighed 6 bags of carrots today before finding the one I wanted. The reason ?
They cannot possible get exact weight for everything. I found that most 5lb bags of carrots were actually less than 5lb I even found one that was a shocking 3.75lb !!! I found one that was actually over 5lb and snagged it up!
Try this trick with everything. Oranges, apples, potatoes, onions, carrots, and really anything that says a certain amount of pounds for X amount of dollars.
I think you will be surprised!
