As families across the nation continue to suffer due to high unemployment rates, gas prices and other effects of the economic downturn, one grocery chain has opted to freeze prices on 40 essential items.
The Wegmans grocery chain says that it will keep prices as is on many items that families buy each week, such as orange juice, cereal, yogurt, coffee and deli items. The prices will remain flat for the remainder of 2011.
"Such things as bananas, pasta, frozen vegetables and laundry detergent are in most shopping carts every week. They are products that families can't do without, so what they pay for these items really matters," Wegmans Food Markets President Colleen Wegman told the Times Leader newspaper.
Another way to get the most for your money at the supermarket is to ensure foods stay fresh. Using a Brabantia bread bin or food storage container is an ideal way to store items such as bread, cookies, crackers, baked goods and snack items.
Brabantia bread boxes are available in white, black and stainless steel so they will fit right in with any decor. In addition, they have a large capacity and keep your food and bread fresher for longer.
These items are available in roll-top and flat-top models. The roll-top designs are equipped with plastic stops inside of the bins to dampen noise when opened and closed quickly.
