Usually I do only Wal*Mart and Aldi...occasionally our Copp's store has a 10 for 10 sale so I'll stop their as well.

I get the Aldi ad in email, so I can check it out online...love that!

If it is to be, it is up to me!

I get adds in the mail every week for local stores products that are on sale. I still find that Aldi has the best food prices for sure. And Wal-Mart has the second best (for the most part). Sometimes Schnucks and Kroger have better prices on meat and their 10 for $10 sale is great sometimes too. We live on a tight budget so it's important to me to find the best prices. I don't find that driving around looking for the best prices is right for me, wastes too much gas, but the adds in the mail and looking online are great help. I love Aldi! And anyone I can tell about it, I do!

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

I think that everyone is lucky to have a lot of stores near by so they can compare shop. Unless you live in a small town like I do and the closest store maybe 15 to 20 minutes away in either direction.

I am lucky that I live in an area where there are a lot of stores to shop from close together so I always compare to get the most for my money. Money is tight and with coupons and sales I really need to compare prices.

I always try to prepare before going out to shop. My kids called our market trips "search and destroy" missions. I use the web to check out store circulars for the best deals and then plan the trip using the shortest route. I also check unit pricing.
Since I usually shop for the same items every week, I follow the same route. For special purchases, I still try to limit extra driving.

I do to some degree and when shopping I will compare per unit prices on things to check if the generic is really priced better than a name brand.

I have typed up shopping lists for both Wal*Mart and Aldi aisle by aisle and since I'm buying for my daycare children as well as my husband and I, I find it the easiest way to prepare for the coming week.

I always plan the dc menu by the month, so can pick up things that are on sale knowing they will be served at some point in the month.

If it is to be, it is up to me!

Do you go to different stores before buying your food for the week or for the month and compare prices? And do you also do the same thing for your everyday stuff like light bulbs, shampoo, pain relievers, etc? I do that a lot before buying. I do that a lot no matter what it is.
