Ann Arbor tops list of affordable groceries

By Angela Smith

I came across this interesting article about the cost of groceries in different settings throughout America. The blog is part of the Patchwork Nation Project - how human experiences differ across the US.

Would you believe Ann Arbor came in with the cheapest tab?

I was inspired to look through the sale papers, and making my grocery list to do a little krogering. Free milk, a couple of boxes of snacks for my kids’ classrooms, pantry items priced 10 for $10… if I could organize my well intentioned coupon box, I could probably end up getting money back; groceries are really affordable these days.

Where do you go to pick up your grocery staples?
