We solved the problem of high grocery costs 15 years ago. We rarely go to a supermarket. Everything is from Costco. The problem is not cost, not quality, it is the bulk. You need to be able to store the excess. Or you could throw away 2/3rds of what you buy and still be better off than going to a Whole Foods store. Contadina tomato sauce, $3 for a #10 can. A years supply of toilet paper for under $20. Three jars of Hunts ketchup for the price of one. Coffee filters, a little packet of 30 at Whole Foods or 300 at Costco for the same price. $5 for a cooked chicken. We average about 2/week for sandwiches, stir fry, etc. Then there is the really inexpensive stuff like a $15 sack of rice that takes 2 people to carry it.

Cod: $5.99 at Key Food.
Do not eat Tilapia!

Whole Foods sources its Tilapia from Ecuador.
