Spare me Safeway!

I was a little blown away yesterday at my local Safeway. I know Hawaii has high grocery prices, but this is insane! I snapped a few pictures to share with you friends...

One dozen eggs: $4.99 They arent even XL!

Juice: $6.99! It better have some magical powers

Ground turkey: $6.99 for 1.25 lbs. Wha????

I love these pie crusts but for $4.69 I will just suck it up and make it myself

And finally, pie filling: $7.25!!!! Crazy town!

I wanted to make some little cherry pies, but when I saw these prices I was going to write it off! But it was my lucky day, I found cherry pie filling (just like the one above) in the clearance section for 50% off! And I was able to get the very last Safeway brand pie crust, only $3.69. I was still able to have pie!! I know you were worried about it.

I have never loved Costco more! I went there immediately after Safeway. I felt much better after leaving. I got 18 eggs for $3.15, a four pack of ground turkey about the same size as that for only $2.49 a pound, and two giant juice bottles for $7.49.

Thats more like it!!

Just one more reason to love Costco

How does Hawaii compare to your home town? Does Costco save you too? Or are your regular grocery stores doable?
