Tip of the Day

I just got home from a lovely shopping excursion with my husband. To all the local ladies out there, you have to check out Land and Sea Market on Gunn Highway. There is also a location in New Tampa. You can buy 5 pounds of ground sirloin all individually wrapped per pound for only $3 per pound. It is a great savings. They also carry all kinds of meat and seafood at unbelievable prices. Another great deal I got was the deal of the week. For $24,99 I got crab bisque for 2, 2lbs of ground sirloin, a pound of deli ham, greek potato salad, 2 filet mignons, and pot roast soup for 2. They have some great dips, spreads and premade meals as well. It definitely makes weeknight cooking a breeze.

My other tip is to shop at Farmer's Markets and produce stands. There is a great one by my house that carries fresh, local produce for way less than a grocery store. I hardly shop at the grocery stores anymore. I can get my meat and seafood at Land and Sea, and then my produce and even my milk and eggs at the stand. I encourage everyone to find local meat markets and produce stands in their areas. More than likely the quality and price is better than at your local grocer.

  1. Hi Laura,
    Great blog! I'm also a huge fan of the farmer's markets and local stores. My staples are the Saturday morning market in Largo and Castellano & Pizzo's Italian market in South Tampa.
