Most of us have been there, paid the rent and bills and have scarce little money left to buy food. What does one do to keep their belly full and not go broke living in Asheville with it's high cost of living? Cutting out $4 Lattes, $7 Avocado Toast and Eating Out are typically good ideas to make you dollars stretch farther, but many still shake their head at the prices in the regular grocery stores for everyday food items. A solution to higher priced food is to shop at Discount Grocery Stores to save 50% and more, effectively doubling your food purchasing power! One of the many fine stores in town fulfilling this need in our Community is The Price Is Right Discount Warehouse, located in North Asheville at 198 Weaverville Road. Bargain hunters will appreciate the selection and prices as they fill up their buggy with food without taking a big hit in the wallet. However, they don't just carry food, and discount shoppers can also save on Health & Beauty, Home Goods, and Furniture while they are there. 

What kind of deals can you expect? A recent visit saw Bread for $1.49, K-Cup Tea priced at 3 Boxes for $6, 98¢ Organic Mac & Cheese Boxes, $1.50 Boxes of Cereal, 98¢ Bags of Chips, and too many other deals to list here. Of course, their selection changes and deals change, but they are always a huge savings off of what you pay at a regular grocery store. You may not find everything you need here, but you will save a lot of cash on what you do, so shop here first before you go anywhere else!
