We had our care group kick off a few days ago. One of the games was to guess the prices of grocery items. She had purchased them from Co op. I could not believe how expensive some of the items were. I based my guesses on what I pay at the superstore, with a small mark up, cause I know co op is expensive. But i was soooo out. A 4 pack of AAA batteries for 7.99. Superstore, 4.25. A box of kleenex for 2.29. Superstore, 1.29. A 2L of Pepsi, 1.89. Superstore, 1.39. You get the idea. I understand that if you shop on Tuesdays, you get 5% off. And yes, you use your coop # and get money back twice a year. But I know for a fact that it doesn't equal out. And who can only shop on a certain day of the week. I like to be as thrifty as I can when I shop. Yup, I look for coupons and use them where I can. And I'm sure if Coop is having a sale, some items could be close to or the same as the superstore. But really??? Its like throwing money away. I don't understand.
Anyway, sorry if I've offended, but this just got me going. I had to share.
