I like Sprouts for produce. The larger stores often just throw their produce into the bins and it is often very bruised. I don't think I've ever gotten a bruised apple or even banana from Sprouts. They also have lower prices on meat and produce. Canned are higher priced, though.

We have Walmarts all over and I have noticed that most of their grocery prices are higher than the other places in town unless they are canned foods. Quite a few of the canned foods are higher priced, too. So much for saving on food. Clothes are less, though.

Our nearest grocery is only 5 minutes away and very convenient. They seem to have a reduced brand in every product they sell. I automatically see and buy the weekly reduced prices and think we are getting the best prices. I don't like to spend time comparing prices when shopping so this is convenient to me DH also shops and knows the choices I prefer...

However, the next shopping tier has a SPROUTS (sorta Whole Foods type) and I like to buy certain things there. It is hard for me to shop elsewhere ...

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

We get most of our groceries from cheap places and buy a few quality things at more expensive stores. The prices are SHOCKING.

There's a local store, I don't think it's nationwide. I like it because of it's loyalty to it's employees.
They have a union also.
My sister shopped there allllll the time when she was a young wife and did gobs of coupon clipping. Last year she stopped in there for something and guess what.
She recognized the VERY SAME baggers who were there 20-30 years ago! Everybody had aged, so she had to confirm it was really them!

It seems like it's a really great place to be employed. Never heard a negative thing yet.

And we all lived happily ever after...

We live in an area where there are several large chains as well as locally owned stores. I used to mainly shop Walmart because it is closer. Since they have quit price matching I usually look for the store with the best sales and shop at one or two of them. Walmart does the savings catcher on line but we have found they don't match sales with all the big stores here. Only one store here I avoid because have gotten meat that is on the edge and the produce is not in great shape.

the grocery stores in my town are WAY over priced. It's so very frustrating.
the produce must be checked carefully because it's usually rotting or the rotting parts have been removed, but you're still paying full price. And meats must be cooked immediately or it goes bad in about three days in the refigerator. Even meat that has been frozen and cooked later can be a little "off". (this is a brand new Kroger too)

I hate grocery shopping. So depressing. Stores by us are changing. The local one down the street is starting to be way overpriced. Have to go 20-25 mins to the Food 4 Less, Meijer or SuperTarget. They are cleaner but prices are only good if there is a sale.

Food is good, store is clean, people who work there are nice. Prices are not going down like they keep claiming they are. They are going up, sometimes jumping by large amounts.

Woodmans is a big store so I get my steps in when I shop. They have great fresh produce prices, store is clean and being such a big store I find all kinds of ingredienzs for cooking that I canít find anywhere else. I save a lot of money shopping there.

Only I can make it happen
