Report on Grocery Prices

Since this question is frequently asked here, I thought I would save one of my Grocery receipts and give some updated, hard numbers about grocery prices.

We did all of our shopping at Food Center, for convenience. These items were purchased on 2/23/13

Romaine Lettuce ( 3-pack) 6.99

Case of Crystal Geyser Spring Water 9.99

6-pack English Muffins 4.69

Quakers Rice cakes 2.79

Pringles 2.89

32 oz Chocolate Milk 4.69 ( you will start to see a trend here- be forewarned that my 10 year old son was with me- this is not how we normally eat ;))

Kens Salad dressing 5.99

Pop Tarts 4.29

register size pack of Skittles 1.19

Half gallon Minute Maid Fruit Punch 3.39

Doritos 3.99

Cherry Coke 12-pack 5.49

Hi-C Juice Boxes 3.99

Capri Sun Juice Boxes 2.99

Cherry Italian Ice 5.99

Coors Light/ Bud Light 12 packs 11.99

Hope this acts as a gauge for people when asking about the grocery prices. We always bring all of our meat from home, and ship a box with non-perishables, just to save a little $$. As you can see, some of the big mark-ups are on things like salad dressing, which is easily shipped or thrown into a suitcase.

Thanks for sharing. Ever since I read Bills list we always bring food down with us other than maybe a case of water. The only cheap grocery item in STT is liquor :-)

Thanks for these. I haven't been to STT in a while and forgot how expensive some groceries are. Will definitely try packing my own meats this time! Though it might be cool to try eating vegetarian while at condo and meat on meals out. Any coffee prices?
