price rite

So after moving to New Haven, I've been on a quest to find the best place to shop. I go to Trader Joe's, but that's a bit far away and they don't carry everything that I need. But, I think I've found a solution...

The first place I went to was Shaw's. Big bright store, complete with obscenely high prices. Not for me. Then I went to Super Stop N Shop. Big bright store, complete with crappy prices. Then yesterday, I went to Price Rite, which is on Dixwell Ave by the Wilbur Cross Highway. Crowded, no shelving, pay for your own bags. BUT, they're dirt cheap, and they also a pretty good selection of foods for people with a more ethnic palate. (Let's just say that a third of their products are from Goya, and they sell at least four types of bananas) I love it.

And for those who are in Cleveland, yes, it's even cheaper than Marc's. A quick rundown....

  • 1 gallon of skim milk - $1.99
  • 96 oz of orange juice (Florida Natural or Tropicana) - $3.49
  • Ramen - $0.13
  • Pita - $.0.50
  • Twin pack of Country Crock margarine - $1.19
  • 2 liter of Coke - $0.69

Has being back in school reduced you to eating ramen??? I would almost feel sorry for you, except you're back in school so I'm actually kind of envious
