This afternoon, hubby and I took a trip to the $0.99 Only Store for mostly produce. I was so excited when I hit the fresh produce department. There in front of me was the largest array of fruits and veggies that I have ever seen there. It has to be the most well-hidden secret....because many people have NO idea that they carry so much produce. The best part is that nothing is over $0.99!! Much of it is packaged in clear plastic bags, but it is all very fresh and so nice looking. I was able to get some veggies that are quite expensive in the regular grocery stores....such as eggplant, asparagus, and fresh ginger! I found a package of flaxseeds! Yes, an item that is in the health food stores and some natural food departments in the grocery stores. You will never find it anywhere close to $0.99!! What a steal! I also found canned chopped clams....looking forward to clams & pasta sometime soon!
Most products in the food section are name brand, such as Dole, DelMonte, Seneca, Chicken of the Sea, Quaker, etc. There are off-brands, as well. But, I have never bought anything in the store that wasn't top-quality. It is amazing, considering I am only paying $0.99. Again, a very well-kept secret! Shhhhhhh! Oh, and did I mention that there is a LARGE selection and LARGE quantity of everything! I LOVE THIS STORE!!
(Notice my little fur-helper Spoofey!)
You never know what they are going to have in stock, so I like to stop there first before hitting the other grocery stores. I am usually able to cross off a large bulk of my produce items listed on my grocery list. I go there first knowing that they will have most of what I need without having to jeopardize cost or quality.
If you live close to a $0.99 Only Store, check it out! No, they are not paying me to write this post. I wish they were (as much as I brag about them.) However, I am always happy to pass on a great deal to my readers.
