Grocery Shopping

This Sparked Me!

To save money when I go shopping I always make alist and NEVER buy anything that is not on that list and I only shop at value store like Walmart and Aldi's instead of commercial stores like Kroger's or Jay C.

    I find that Aldi typically carries good produce. I'll get several canned good there too. Anything to save money from the higher priced stores. I also compare prices and pretty well know in my head how much my regular items cost (lowest price) so I stock up when there are sales.

    When I started to read this helpful hint I thought it was one of mine ....its exactly how I shop only I do not shop at Walmart.

I do shop at one grocery store....Food Basics .....I save at least 30% over most other grocery stores....and that is comparing the same products...same brands etc..

and I bag my own groceries...I am so used to that its no bother whatsoever...
