I got one of those newspaper flyers in the mail for a grocery store called WInco. Have you heard of it? I had, but it was a long time ago and they were always located in areas that… left something to be desired, if you know what I mean. So I never wanted to pack up the kids and take a trip there. Plus, I have a special place in my heart for Stater Brothers. They’re my people. No fancy stores or outfits or starbucks in the entrance… just some cheap food. Remember when the Stater Brothers brand food was a brown box with writing on it? Nothing else, just a brown cardboard box that said, “Macaroni and Cheese” in black boring font. Those were the good ol’ days.
Well, the flyer I got showed that there was a Winco in a nicer area, right by the Walmart that I oh so love! 😉 Plus, there was a coupon for a FREE orange juice and a FREE dozen eggs, no purchase necessary. So I thought I would check it out. It reminded me of Costco, but you don’t buy everything in bulk. They had everything on my list, too. I hate that when I go to Trader Joe’s or wherever and they don’t have something and I have to go across the street to Vons. Talk about a pain in the hiney! They also had these big dispensers of spices that you buy by the weight, instead of just buying a REALLY expensive small container off the shelf. I was highly impressed.
Long story short, I spent LESS than $100 on groceries for the whole week!!! That’s amazing! I usually spend around $125, at least. We cook dinners and eat at home a lot. So, I just wanted to share the wealth. If you have a Winco in the area, it’s worth the drive!
