Fresh & Easy, F&Easy

May 24, 2013Holly Sosa

I’ve written about Fresh & Easy on my blog before because they’re so awesome & save me so much money.  I cannot say enough good things about this store.  I shopped there all the time when I lived alone because they have tons of quick & easy pre-portioned meals/meats ready to go.  Plus, they have the raddest rewards program ever where you earn free store credit.  Just for shopping at their store.  That’s all you have to do.

Now as a Mom who feeds five mouths every night, I still shop there all of the time because they have tons of healthy options at amazing prices.  No, seriously.  They don’t accept accept brand coupons because their prices are already so low. However, they do often post their own coupons & in fact have offered a printable one to my readers!  $5 off your purchase of $20 or more.  $20 goes a long way in this store.

This is the store where I buy all my frozen veggies.  I use them in soup pretty frequently because all the cutting is already done & I can just toss them in the pot with some noodles & broth for a fast & hot lunch.

Shopping there is stress free & dare I say, relaxing.  The aisles are easy to navigate & pleasantly organized.  Everything is easy to find & clearly labeled.  Most of their produce is only what’s in season & shipped to the store from local farms within 24 hours.  And most importantly for me, a sale shopper, all of their sale items from their weekly ads are right up front.  No having to comb through the store to find your sweet deal from the newspaper.

One of my favorite parts about Fresh & Easy is that they all have a small clearance section.  It’s usually filled with meats or fruits/veggies that are going to expire within a couple of days.  There are sometimes eggs & bread there too.  This trip, J & I found a dozen eggs on clearance for $0.90.  We love hard boiled eggs & they don’t expire for a few days yet, so we snagged up two dozen.

The real reason I shop there, though, is because they make meals crazy easy for me.  I’m a busy Mom & having home cooked meals is important to me.  F&Easy makes it simple for me to be able to give them a nice, fresh, home cooked meal with half of the time.
For instance, during this trip, they had pre-marinated mango salsa chicken breasts on sale.  I grabbed a package & some pre-sliced veggies from their produce aisle & I had dinner for my family for under $10.  Easy family fare done & done.
Another reason I shop at Fresh & Easy is totally not because of their dessert fridge.  Nope.  Not at all.  I’ve never purchased a cheesecake or blonde brownie or cupcake from there.  Not ever.  Even though they make them in convenient one or two person servings which are easy to grub on after the kids are in bed & you don’t want to share.  Not I.
Honestly, I was so excited to have this opportunity to write about my favorite store.  I feel like this post is just everywhere because I have so much to say about them.  I really cannot recommend them enough.  Especially to families like mine who need healthy & fresh options at affordable prices.  Definitely take a moment to search for a location near you & check it out.
