I’ve been reading the blog Poor Girl Eats Well quite a bit lately, and the author reminded me to think outside the box when grocery shopping. I’m pretty good about saving money at the grocery store, and I’m always looking for a better deal. But what really inspired me to go to Grand Asia Market in Cary was the outrageous price of coconut milk at my usual supermarkets. Kroger, Food Lion, and Harris Teeter sell coconut milk for $2.50 a can. The cheapest I’ve seen it at Kroger was $1.69, on sale.  So I dragged my dad to Grand Asia today and he pushed the cart while I shopped. Thanks for being a good sport, dad! There were a few different brands of coconut milk, and I found one for 99 cents a can. Plus, you wouldn’t believe how varied their selection of tofu, wheat gluten and soy products is.  I got all this food for under $20:


  • Eggplant
  • Mung Bean sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • Red pepper
  • avocados
  • Baby bok choy
  • cilantro
  • Black rice noodles
  • 6 cans coconut milk
  • Frozen soy beans
  • Soy “chicken” cutlets
