Thrifty Thursday: Grocery Shopping at Kwik Trip

Kwik Trip is a gas station and convenience mart in my area, your's may have a different name, but if you have not checked out your local gas stations as a source to do some grocery shopping you could be missing out on some great deals.

What I love about getting fruit from Kwik Trip is that the price is consistent year round. So, when apples are not in season in our area, then it is the most economical place to buy them. Apples (they often have a few different varities), oranges, pears (and sometimes grapefruit, peaches, plums & nectarines) are 3 for $1.29. Tomatoes are 59-cents each. Bananas, onions & baking potatoes are 39-cents a pound. A large container of half & half is $1.99, lettuce is $1.19, and at the time of this purchase eggs were 99-cents a dozen (usually they have the best price on eggs compared to a grocery store).

I have often seen a pound of butter on sale for $1.99. They also tend to have cheaper prices on milk, even cheaper if you want to buy bags of milk (they do provide free pitchers to use with the bags if you don't have your own pitcher you want to use.) And they also have a frequent buyer punchcard for milk and orange juice which will give you money off when you fill your card.

And bread is another item that can be purchased cheaply. A loaf of white bread is typically 69-cents, but they also carry multi-grain, french loaves, high fiber & other varieties of bread.

And if you like their coffee, they do sell bags of coffee (same kind they make in the store) for $6.99, which is  a little cheaper than the bags of beans you buy in a grocery store.
