I just moved into town a few days ago, and i am looking for a cheap supermarket. I live within walking distance to a Rouses but i am looking for something cheaper. I have a car so i can drive if the cheaper places are outside of the city. I used to live in hudson county, NJ. There I could find asian or latino supermarkets that were a little on the ugly side but allowed me to wind up with a lot of produce that I would eventually have to freeze because I bought so much, ha.
Also the meat at Rouses isnt' too cheap either. Im' used to buying a bulk portion of pork or sirloin and having the butcher section it off into filets, chops, cubes, ground etc.Take home and freeze. My roomate also just moved here and he said its' because we are in the city, well in NY you can at least take a drive to the outerbourghs. Im' more of a person that grocery shops once a month and stocks up. Rouses id' leave for little things here and there. If anyone can help this poor college student out please. A 20-30 minute drive is perfectly doable. thanks!!!
