$3.99 a pound

January 12th, 2008 at 05:54 pm

I could just kick myself. I went to Publix and picked up some grapes and a few other things, at the time I thought my purchase were a little out of the ordinary but I did not think anything of it. Well I am entering all my receipts (3 days later)into my money software and notice that those handful of grapes cost me $7.19 arrrrrrgh. I was so annoyed, normally I check my receipts right away and if I had, I would have known those grapes were $3.99 a pound and returned them right then and there

    Do you not look at the price before you decide to get an item? I look at the price and if it's my price, great. If not, I don't buy it.

    They're getting expensive. I planted two vines last year. Grapes are very abundant so in a few years I should have grapes to give away or barter. In childhood we picked wild muscadines in the river bottom forests. Free!

    Seems like everything has gone up in price. We went to Sam's to get a few things and I was amazed at the increase in dairy products, in particular.

    I hope you at least enjoyed your grapes. I had one pregnancy where it was the middle of January and DH HAD to buy my nectarines which were $8 a pound. I was happy and didn't care a thing about money at that point. Now when I'm pregnant I'll be looking for cheaper alternatives to cravins. I think the pregnancy after that I was sick in the summer and lived and Jell-O and watermelon which was at least in season!

    Grocery stores are so sneaky when it comes to produce. One thing they do with grapes, cherries, etc is to package them. Then there is only one scale in the whole produce department so you can't weigh it, but it doesn't look very big. If the price is $1.00 a pound, I might think that the package doesn't look very big, put it in the cart, and then at checkout it's weighed and it's 2 pounds or more! I often will open up those prepackaged bags and take out only what I want. (I also hate when the strawberries are packed in the clamshell box and they always put a bunch of yucky ones in the bottom or the middle... so I rarely buy those anymore, unless the price is extra cheap)

    I was suckered into the same thing around New Years Eve. We buy grapes as a tradition and eat them when the clock strikes 12. If it had not been for that, I wouldn't have bought them. In an effort to make you feel better, I looked up my receipt and yes the price was $3.99 also. But, they were on sale that night for $3.69. You must have bought them at Winn Dixie as I did. So, you aren't the only one. Sometimes we have to pay the price, but then we have become smart enought to know what things really cost. My grapes were $5.54 and don't you know that I made sure that I ate everyone of them and that they didn't go to waste.

    Denise I always look at the price, but for some reason the price was listed for the red grapes at $.99 a pound nothing for the white ones and I did not ask assuming it was the same because they usually are and was unable to locate some one in produce
