Not sure when the article was originally written, but these prices definitely don't reflect the current prices where I live.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I go to the most expensive store in town. They sell gallon milk for $2.59 plus you can freeze it. You need to pour off about 8 oz, then freeze. You do have to go directly to the milk section and then to the checkout. Do not pass the pastry, ice cream or any other tempting part of the store. If you can't do that don't go for the great price. A once a week trip isn't too hard.

Prices have in some cases tripled since this article was written. But the items listed are still the better prices in the store. Eggs, canned beans, etc. are still more bang for the buck than other items are.

Nice list, but I use coconut milk, and oil (for butter, too). Save a few caliries and pennies for coffee creamer. I don't like tuna any more, but canned chicken.

Great comments and ideas. Although our prices tend to be higher here, it is still all relative. One thing I have learned - portion control really makes a difference as to being successful dieting and also saving money.

For plain yogurt (or any yogurt) I like either Fage fat-free or 2% greek yogurt, or Chobani. Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt. More protein = more filling!

Either I'm lucky or I'm just cheap, all my favorite ones are the least expensive ones! I'll go with lucky. =)
