Tropical Supermarket: Cheap Local Finds

Spent: $25.26

Tropical Supermarket is a locally-owned, IGA-affiliated grocer in Orlando. They had some great advertised deals on meat and produce as well as some great unadvertised deals. They don't really calculate the "amount saved" well on their receipts, so I will compare their prices to wait you would pay at the big stores.

Chicken Leg Quarters, $0.49/lb
($0.99/lb this week at Winn-Dixie)

Ground Beef, $1.99/lb
(Ground Chuck is $3.49/lb this week at Publix; Usually $2.49/lb when on sale at Winn-Dixie; Usually $2.39/lb or so at Aldi)

Bell Pepper, $0.79/lb
(Usually $1.99/lb-$2.49/lb at Publix and Winn-Dixie)

Green Cabbage, $0.39/lb
(Approximately $0.79/lb at Publix and Winn-Dixie)

Yellow Onions, 2-lb Bag, $1.29 ($0.65/lb)
(Usually $0.99-$1.29/lb at Publix)

Broccoli, $1.79
($0.99 at Aldi this week; Sale price is usually $2.00-$2.50 at Publix and Winn-Dixie)

IGA Aluminum Foil, 75 sq ft, $1.79
