Don’t Forget The Groceries

Black Friday is 49 days from now. Many of my readers will. I’m sure, be scanning the upcoming flyers for deals on shoes, clothes, electronics and more. This Blog Post is a friendly reminder to NOT FORGET THE GROCERIES.

Grocery Prices

Based on a CD Howe Study  “According to official statistics, The price of food in (Canada) was 57 per cent higher, and the price of the milk, cheese and eggs was 77 per cent higher.” Ottawa Citizen, May 12, 2014.

So lets take a look at some of the items that should be on your Black Friday Shopping Lists…

Here is a comparison from this weeks flyers; Buffalo – Tops Market, Toronto – Superstore, Metro, Fresh Co and Zehrs.

So if you did nothing other than pick up these items you looking at a savings of $51.61. If you add things like freezer bags, shampoo, conditioner and laundry detergent this number jumps to over $100.00 in savings.
