Really?

Pretty sure the FDA (albeit in 1998/1999) found that there was essentially no nutritional difference between fresh and frozen veggies.

You really need to define good.

Good for the pocket book? or good for your diet? or good for your palate?

Commercial frozen food is more expensive and limit one's diet to pretty much low fiber content veg eg corn, carrots, brussel sprouts.

However it is convenient, available round the year.. the whole "why McD is relied by low income people" argument all over again.

You don't need to be next to CPR's land to get your own veg. Even UBC now has their own farm that do “Community Shared Agriculture”, you basically pay a subscription for your veg and you get a huge tub of organic seasonal, greens weekly from them deliver right to your door. A lot of farmers market do that, not to mention cow sharing.. $200 for half a cow worth of meat cut for you? that's a heck of a deal.

Require more info on this cow sharing....

Google is somewhat helpful but any recommendations?

From what I've read, there isn't a place locally for as cheap as you're describing. $200 will get you less than 1/4.

Frozen peas/corn are fine to mix in a shepherds pie or whatever, but frozen broccoli, cauli etc are nasty IMO. No way to cook them to a proper crunch.

To each their own I suppose.

I shared it with another family. It also depends on the year. There are ALOT of cows and the price depends on which time of the year you get it (supply and demand of the butcher, they usually do each cow seperately). Heck, there are a dozen feral cows on one of my properties that I haven't yet figure out what to do with them yet. They do keep the grass low though.

You basically get the meat fresh, and you do your own aging. That's where the cost comes in anyways.

As for where and how, browse around the farmer markets Trout Lake, Maple Ridge etc I suggest you go with 1 whole one to start and just share / give it away, then you can figure out which parts of the meat you like / want in the future. Last time I experimented with the offals and guts, quite fascinating. You do need those large 80L stock pots to process them.

In town, I think there is a place in North Van that matches people with cows.. a bit too hipster y for me.

I checked out Safeway for the diaper deal, not really a great deal. Superstore is still the cheapest for diapers...Pampers or Huggies.

Assorted varieties of Campbell's Chunky Soup @ Save On Foods for $1.67 each (3/$5).

Seems like a good deal to me. I've seen Costco have it for $1.44 each (8/$11.50), but you have to buy a 8 can pack with varieties you may not want.

I went to Superstore in Coquitlam yesterday in hopes of getting Halloween chocolates for half price. Got there 5 minutes after they opened. Every year, they have chocolates for half price, so I was pretty sure to get them at a pretty good price. And, for those who say the chocolates spoil after a year are full of it. If you store them properly, they stay fresh.

Anyway, I left pretty disappointed........ frugal Asian walks out empty handed. That's okay, that store is going through renovations and they are having problems with their computers. I got a 10 lb bag of flour for free, because it scanned through as the wrong price - win! Oh yeah, they did reduce the chocolates as I was leaving, but only by 30%

I phone the Grandview store this morning to see if chocolates were 50% off and sure enough, they were. And, they had a lot left. When I get to the Coquitlam store, I had dude at customer service scan to see how much they were. Still only 30% off. I told the guy I phoned the Grandview Hwy location and it was 50% off. Dude says, "Yeah, just let the cashier know that I will authorize 50% off of all chocolates." I was okay with that, even though the original price was higher than anywhere else, except Safeway.

I get to till and young girl there says, "Yes, they are half off." I check the bill afterwards and guess what? They took 50% off the sale price. WIN!

120 pieces Coffee Crisp, Kit Kat, Aero box cost me $5.25! That's less than 5 a piece fellow frugal Asians.

So you basically got half off the half off! I showed up at Grandview looking for the chocolates. But the original price was $18.xx and sale price was $9.xx.
