As a jobless people in Hokkaido, I always find ways to keep my monthly expense low whenever possible. And it’s my pleasure to share this information to all JaLSers so that we can enjoy cheap but good food together  🙂

 

Half-priced supermarket bento

In Japanese supermarkets, you can buy prepared food such as deep-fried food, cooked rice and bento (Japanese lunchbox). All of them are cooked and are ready to eat. Supermarkets prepare bento every day and try the best to sell them out before closing time. The best way to clear the food cabinet is DISCOUNT!

 

If you visit supermarkets at around 6pm, you can see DISCOUNT STICKERS (usually in red and yellow) on bento and fresh meat products. Take for an instance, a tag of ‘50円引き’ means you can buy the bento 50 Japanese yen cheaper than marked price. If you are patient enough to wait until 7.30pm, you will be able to purchase bento at 50% off(半額)!

Supermarkets usually the 半額 tag around an hour before closing time.

 

 

Seicomart

You can find 7-11 and LAWSON almost everywhere in Japan. However, you can find Seicomart ONLY in Hokkaido; and the prices of Seicomart food products are very reasonable.

 

You see the below lovely ice-cream produced by Seicomart.

Though each only costs JPY 100, it tastes great!

 

Next time, let me introduce you good and cheap restaurants in the city   (^^)/
