Families can look for deals on back-to-school groceries

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Parents who need to do back-to-school grocery shopping should prepare to pay some higher prices than normal.

Drought has driven the prices of many essentials like milk, other dairy products, fruits and vegetables. Bacon prices have sizzled to a 30-year high. Orange juice is also jumping, because of damage to the citrus crop in Florida. Coffee prices are also soaring by as much as ten percent.

To save money, customers can look for store coupons and consider buying store brands, instead of name brands.

You can find deals at local grocery stores by following the links below:
