The Dollar Aisle

Today was the first time since being back in the old neighborhood that I've had a chance to really check out what's new at my old favorite grocery store, Russ's Market at 17th & Washington aka Ghetto Russ's. I've already become a big fan of the dollar shelves at the back of the store near the dairy section.

Here's what I picked up there today:



The sliced mushrooms, black beans and peeled grape tomatoes (glass jar on the left) were all 50¢ while the 28 oz. can of tomatoes and the tuna were a buck each. The dollar section at Russ's is way, way better than Sun Mart's. I'm going to experiment later this year and see how many tasty, good-looking meals I can put together just using stuff from dollar aisles.

The dollar aisle is awesome. I'll let you in on a little secret. You can get 50-tablet bottles of acetaminophen and ibuprofen for $1 each in that aisle.

Not everything in the aisle is a good deal though.

Another dirty secret: The fruit pies in that aisle look awesome. Maybe I'll try one.

Where in the 'hood are you these days?

BTW- I've always referred to it as Dirty Russ's... or Big Baby Jesus Russ's.
