It's pretty cool seeing not only what you guys pay but what kind of food you have! Hardly anything looks familiar

I found some prices on current specials at my Supermarket. It's for South Africa so it's a bit cheaper than Botswana since most of Botswana's food gets imported from SA.
Darn I wish I was back home :( I miss South Africa!!!!!!

Pick 'n Pay

This is criminal. I was just at Costco and saw prepackaged marinated tri-tip in a vacuum sealed bag. It was in a 12% solution of marinade and tenderizers. $5.97 per pound!

I see that, but the ones they always put on sale at such low prices are the select grade. I'm sure Costco's are choice.

This was not a Costco product - Kirkland Signature). It was a pre-packaged brand name. I think it was Coleman's. I don't know the grade but I resent having to pay inflated tri-tip prices for 12% liquids.

Note on Wegman's prices: Even between Wegman's there can be a price difference. For instance, the one in Geneva is substantially less that the one in Ithaca. Just a thought. Also, Wegman's has everything a cook could ever want. Foodie heaven.
