My Most Recent Best Buy

This week our grocery store had ketchup for $.78 (36 oz size of Heinz) and green, seedless grapes for $.99 per pound. My little one loves green grapes and they have been so expensive lately (like a lot of other fresh fruit). I had purchased grapes at nearly twice that earlier in the week, but I bought these today anyway. I washed them good, sacked them up and threw them in the freezer. A lady that I work with does this and says they are fabulous. I decided since we already had a bag in the frig, these could be put in the freezer for a later time.
Just to let you know, we have tried the frozen grapes and they are really good. My little one likes to let them thaw first (kids sometimes don't like to try new things), but I think they are best frozen. This will make a fabulous summertime treat. The best part: No more spoiled grapes!


  1. I just bought grapes yesterday too! I love the white seedless. More often than not, I wash them, let them dry, then pop them in the freezer too. Have you ever eaten frozen grapes? It is a very refreshing treat (low calorie too). Ninety-nine cents a pound is a good buy on grapes. I just happened to grab about 3 lbs for $1.49 yesterday...just as the produce man was putting them on the reduced rack! :)

  2. I never knew you could freeze grapes. You will have to let me know how they turn out!

  3. Great deal on the grapes.....I stocked up on them too this week. It's been awhile since my little one has had them. I need to try them in the freezer.....hadn't heard of that. Thanks I'm visiting from Ring around the Blogs!
