What is a good price – SWEDEN

I’ve promised to start this series for a while now and it’s not until today that I’ve actually got the time to sit down and start it. I’m going to start with Sweden, since this is where I live at the moment. These are simply the best prices for these products! It will be updated fairly regularly, as I go about and find what different products have as their best price. The rest of the post will be in Swedish.

What is a good price – X

So, I’m going to start writing a series here called: “What is a good price – X”, where I list things from shops and what price you should be paying for that item. Most things go on sale sooner or later and most shops have a sale cycle which they abide by, more or less at least. Usually it’s 6-8 weeks, but it depends on the store and your country. For example, here in Sweden the sales cycles are longer than, for example, in the USA. 
So, I’ll focus on one shop chain at the time, sometimes two if they have similar price settings. The blog posts will be updated continually, so check in once in a while to see if anything has changed. The first chain I’m going to start a “What is a good price – X” is ICA, a Swedish chain where I do most of my weekly shopping. When I move to London I’ll start with the British shop chains. The name for that post will therefore be: “What is a good price – ICA”.
If you’re living in the US, or any other country, and would like me to do the same thing with your chains, please contact me and we’ll set something up!

Today’s Haul

I went to the shop today and got the best deals of this week! I was supposed to get ecological yogurt as well, but they were out and won’t have any until tomorrow, so I’m going back then. I also bought the wrong brand of soda, I accidentally bought the one that wasn’t on sale – so I need to change that as well.

Not everything I bought is in the picture, but almost. This week I got:

  • 2 bags of spaghetti for 10kr/bag (1kg/bag) (1€/bag)
  • 2 packs of chicken nugget from Max. These are DELICIOUS, buy them if you can – they are terrific! They only cost 35kr/box (3.50€/box)
  • 2 toothbrushes, 2 for 15kr (1.50€/2)
  • 1kg ecological carrots 10kr (1€)
  • Soda 5kr/bottle (50 cents/bottle)
  • 2 loaves of bread 10kr/loaf (1€/loaf)

This will last me a while, along with the other food I bought last week.

Best deals of this week at ICA!

This week’s ad is out for the shops and I’ve checked them out to see what the best deals are. Remember that not all the “deals” in the ads are real, or good, deals, so be check out what the regular price is on the tag. I’ve simply taken the ones that I know are good deals and pasted them here.

Remember to check how many you can buy per household/transaction and always buy the full allowance!
