California/Nevada/Arizona people — Fresh&Easy

There's an awesome market called Fresh & Easy that was recently put near my house here in San Diego. There are several locations all over the 3 states mentioned in the subject line. Great, a market, what's so 'poor skills' about this, you might be wondering. Well, at our Fresh & Easy, every day around 3pm or a little later, the employees go around the store and mark down pretty much everything with a 'best by' date of the current day. Some of the sales are over 50%(A big bag of iceburg lettuce mix was 49 cents, down from $1.89). A lot of the meat is discounted throughout the day, and doesn't have to be used the day of--everything can be frozen until you need it. If you have a Fresh & Easy near you, I definitely recommend checking it out, especially in the afternoon. It has some great deals throughout the day despite on-sale items, but the on-sale items are just the icing on the cake. The only thing to be aware of is that some 'day of' items don't contain any preservatives(yay!), which means they may actually perish within a day or two. My boyfriend and I stop by every few days to scout for deals and to ensure we don't buy a basket of groceries that will expire in a few days. Fresh & Easy is really a great addition to your current routine of shopping based on sales and coupons, and can be a really good way of incorporating healthy, fresh food into your diet at a really affordable price :)
