There is some useful information to be aware of when looking at price tags. When there’s an asterisk on the tag that means that the item is not coming back so make sure to scoop it up if you’re interested.

When a price ends with $.88 that indicates that this is the lowest price the discount will go, so grab those items as well. Product prices ending in a 9 are priced by the manufacturer.

    The walnuts are about half the price as regular supermarkets. Also, the REAL bacon bits are a bargain, I freeze 2/3 of the package and take it out as needed. The salad kits are always 2 for the price of one!
