Before heading out to any discount shopping store, you need to first understand what is a good price for everyday items. Buying in bulk can often be confusing based on the quantity. By first knowing the prices of a staple pantry item then you can determine if the bulk price is a good deal or not.
Sam’s Club has great prices on chicken. A rotisserie chicken is often just $4.98 and boneless, skinless chicken breast are on sale for $1.99 per lb.
An 8-pound bag of Sunkist Navel Oranges are just $6.98 this week, bananas are 44¢/lb, the Fuji Apples 6lb Bag is $7.98, and Seedless Grapes are $2.99/lb.
