Tips to save money on your grocery bill

I discovered this place with my sister-in-law recently in Centreville, VA called Grand Village. It is an Asian Grocery Store that mainly carries Asian food but, also carries alot of mainstream items. The store opened recently and is amoung a chain of Asian grocery stores in Fairfax, VA that all start with the name "Grand" well anyway I discovered that they have the cheapest and most affordable produce.

For example:
One whole fresh pineapple cost .99cents each.
1 box of 8 count of Mangos cost: $3.99
4 bunches of spring onions or green onions cost $1.00
5 limes for $1.00

I could go on and on with the low prices but, there are just too many to name.
Most people do not know that certain Asian Grocery stores carry the same items as the regular big standard chains do but, their prices are much lower than you would expect on certain items. Its worth checking out. I know most of you that read this may not live where I live but, with a little research in your area I am sure you discover and Asian Grocery store nearby go in and check it out. You will be amazed with your find.

I went in once after they opened - not much labeled in English and produce didn't look very fresh. No organic foods and of the roughly 8 live fish in the tanks, 3 were dead...yuck.
