Just the Basics

 

Here's the weekly list of good sale prices for the basics at our various grocery and drug stores for this week including milk, meat, dairy, produce, bread, eggs and more. Please add any other great deals on basics that you find!

This week you will find plenty of deals for your Memorial Day weekend cookouts including hot dogs, chicken, ribs, brats, steak, buns, cheese, sodas, pasta, corn, strawberries, cantaloupe and more!

You will notice a change to the list below from previous weeks. I am revamping the Just the Basics list to really only include the basics: milk, bread, eggs, produce, meat, some dairy, some misc. grocery and drinks. The rest of the coupon deals and non-food deals can be found on the much longer weekly lists for each store. My thanks to Karen at WRAL who is now putting together this list!
