Budget Saving Grocery Shopping

This is a first for me as far as writing a pro piece on a corporation but this particular company has saved our family budget week after week. By no means am I getting paid for this piece so throw out all the bias that I am a bought and paid for writer for this grocery market chain company. This opinion writer is not for sale. This is about saving folks some cash when it seems that everywhere you look it is flying out the window with no control of your own.

We have a fairly large family here in New England and with that family there is a very large food budget. You have to eat and anywhere you can save a few dollars is a Godsend to a larger than life family! My first time shopping at Price Rite I was shocked at the prices. Milk and eggs were half the cost at the other super duper chains. Cereal that the kids eat us out of home was more than fifty percent cheaper and if I happened to pick the store brand it was a bigger discount. As far as the kids care, cereal is cereal and we go through a big box every single morning but the savings get better. They just added the zip close bags in family size and the price is unbelievable.

All throughout the store the prices just blow your mind away and one thing that keeps coming to the front of my mind is how badly the mega chains of New England have been ripping my family off. How can a name brand oven stuffer chicken roast (Big name that begins with P and ends with UE) charge $10 to $12 and the same product is at Price Rite for $6? How is it that the same name brand canned vegetables and fruits are half the price at Price Rite? Store name brands even cheaper at 33 cents a can?

Before a Price Rite store opened in my area we were spending easily $300 for food at the mega stores and wondering and hoping that it would last the week or two. We even did the food club stores and bought in bulk but that was becoming ever more costly as time passed. Now we spend half that much and we no longer have the storage space for things we considered luxuries on our trips to the market. Price Rite is the ultimate budget pleaser and you no longer have to look at quick fix noodles as something to feed your kids a couple of nights a week to extend the food money. As for folks on a fixed income and retired, get your fixed income food dollars to Price Rite and it will knock your socks off on the money you have left over.

There is no membership fee to shop there and the only drawback that I see in it is that you can bring your own bags for your groceries or buy them for ten cents each. Thinking about that and the cost to join the mega food discount stores that don’t even offer bags then Price Rite has them beat there!

From the website of Price Rite they are available in Mass, RI, Conn, Penn & New York. According to the website the savings they find are all passed onto their customers by not advertising, they offer no frills, and they find the best deals week after week and pass the savings and products on to their customers. I don’t care how they do it, I know for a fact that my food budget is half what it used to be and for that I am thankful to the folks running this grocery market chain!
Given the multiple number of name brand products you can get at the stores you currently visit it always shocks me at the difference of price that Price Rite has. Spread the word and email your friends that it is worth the trip to save half of your grocery budget to travel to the nearest store to you!

I'm waiting for Aldi to come to Worcester. Their stores are a cross between PriceRite and Trader Joe's. Great food at dirt cheap prices.

I've never heard of Aldi? It sounds like an interesting combo though!

I totally agree about PriceRite. It certainly is a no-frills place and some items are not there every week, but Price Rite is the first place I go, then fill in what I can't get there at other stores.
Like you said, PriceRite has saved the family budget week after week.
