  1. Kandice

    Avocados are $.50 and the grass fed beef is $5.29 at my Aldi. Costco ends up being cheaper you get 4lbs ground beef for $19.99. At least here in Houston. Thanks for the tips though.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Kandice! Thanks for the feedback. It seems pricing can sometimes vary by store.

  2. Lisa

    I found the Kerry Gold Butter at Walmart too (just recently). They did not have very many of them, but was kind of surprised because I could only find it at Aldi’s. Not sure price comparison.

  3. Dana

    I gotta say, I use to be Bob’s Red Mill fan until I ordered Wellbee’s super fine almond flour from Amazon. It’s not cheap at $18 for 2lb bag, but man is it great stuff. It makes everything so much lighter and fluffier than Bob’s.

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Oh awesome! Thanks a bunch for the suggestion! We’ll have to try it!

  4. Julie Sharp

    Any suggestions on where to find the best pricing on heavy cream?

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! Be sure to check your local Walmart, ALDI, Costco, Winco or whomever typically has cheaper groceries in your area! Hoping that might help!

    • Susan

      I find WalMart’s heavy whipping cream is cheaper in my area than other stores (we have Meijer, Wal Mart and Kroger here). It also has a longer shelf life than others, which is a huge help.
