I joined Safeway a few weeks ago, after moving here from another state and was surprised to find how differently grocery items are priced here. If you are looking for a grocery store to join, Safeway seems to be one of the best for regular grocery shopping. Beyond reduced prices for club members, they also have coupons available online that can be automatically added to your card, plus gas rewards. Anyway, I love bananas, but hadn’t bought them since moving since $.69 per lb is a bit high for us to buy twice a week. Yesterday, I spent more time browsing for deals and found out that with my safeway card, ORGANIC bananas are actually cheaper than regular bananas at $.59 lb. I still wish they were a little less, but organic and at that price, I’m game. They are delicious.
