Cheapest places in Winnipeg for all kinds of stuff

27 Feb

There’s been a great discussion on our facebook group about the cheapest place to buy glasses – got me thinking about the cheapest places to buy everything!! 🙂

So, time to share – where do you buy things like computer ink, furniture, coffee, diapers….whatever! Do you buy it all new, any good used places?

  1. Costco:
    Flour – 20kg – $12.99
    Brown Sugar – 2 kg – $3.39
    Chocolate Chips – 5 kg – $22
    Diaper Wipes – 900 – $21
    Pork Loin – This past week they were a “coupon” item, $5 off. Yesterday I got a 3.914 kg Pork Loin for $13.75 😀 They are a good deal ALL the time, even better when they are $5 off!!!

  2. Costco is really good for Glasses and contacts. But lately I have been getting my glasses online at Clearly Contacts or Zenni Optical (Super Cheap).

    My kids are now 5, 3 and 3 and I am finally done with Diapers. With my first born I only used Pampers. I used coupons all the time and waited for sales and used coupons together. Once I had my twins and my oldest was still in diapers paying $30-36 dollars a box was not an option. I bought teddy’s choice diapers that are $28 dollars regularly and then go on sale every other week for $20 dollars a box. When they were $20 and I had money I would buy as many boxes as possible (since I went through so many). Some people don’t like store brand stuff they worked great and were a fraction of the price. Without that i wouldn’t have been to afford them at all.

    I stock up on juice boxes at Shoppers drug mart when they go on sale for $1.99 a box for 10. In the summer I take them with me everywhere and go through them like crazy. It’s way cheaper than paying that amount for a 5 pack.

    We also shop at costco and sometimes can get some good deals on Groceries. You just have to know your prices but a while back i bought a jumbo box of Cheerios for $5.00. I bought a few of those.

  4. The Food Fare near my house in St. James (@ Mount Royal) often has Astro yogurt at really cheap prices (not advertised). $1 for the large tub of Organic yogurt and last week $1.49 for a 12 pack of the individual sizes. Paired with the coupon that Smart Source has a little while back it was an even better deal! They also sell whole free range chickens at less per/lb than their regular whole chickens and support local merchants (bothwell cheese and local honey).

  5. I always buy bread at Costco two big loaves of natural bakery for 5
    Everywhere else is 4 for one loaf
    I personally do not like mcgavins have bought moldy bread there before

  6. My HP Inkjet cartridges (56 and 57) have consistently been cheaper at Staples (I compared to Costco, WalMart, BestBuy.) I still watch for sales elsewhere.

    For bigger-ticket items like that that are purchased infrequently, I have a small notebook in my day planner, and I keep a list of the regular prices at each of the stores I might think of buying from. Then I don’t have to remember where I found the good price.

    Fresh produce is typically cheaper at Superstore, so that’s my go-to place when I need something and can’t wait for a sale.

    Bulk Barn often has $3 off $10 purchase coupon. I gather my list of items, and wait for a coupon week. I try to keep my purchase as close to $10 as possible, so that the savings add up. More coupons can be printed from their website, so multiple trips are sometimes better than one.

    Shoppers’ Drug Mart has excellent sales on facial tissue and eggs. I combine those with coupons whenever possible.

    Costco’s frozen vegetable mix (cauliflower, broccoli, carrot) and frozen berry mix are great prices and quality.
