Grocery Shopping
February 2, 2013 at 3:02 PM
I just made my menu and lists for the week. I'm going to have to go to at least 3 stores. Too many people with different dietary restrictions to find it all one place! Anyone else go through this headache week after week? How many stores do you go to, and why?

    I go shopping almost every day. I like fresh foods. It is not a headache to me, I love it.

    I go to maybe two (food lion and costco) lol... My husband is trying to gain... While I focus on losing weight. Nothing super fancy.

     I just go to a few that have the B1G1 sales.. The others I just price match at Wal-Mart because it's easier, and they're usually the cheapest.

    2, Kroger and Walmart. I go to Kroger because they double my coupons ($.50 and under) and they are very coupon friendly. I go to Walmart for a few things like paper towels, cheese, creamer and snacks for my husbands lunch because they have better deals on those items. 

    ETA: Also go to Walmart to pricematch Savealot on things. Got frozen boneless chicken breasts for $1.59 a pound :)

    I usually go to two, sometimes three. because i coupon and different stores have different sales/double coupons etc. I block off one afternoon a week, go armed with my list (rearranged in order that the items are in the store), and just hit them all at once. not a big deal.

    I've got 3 kiddos, more when nieces & nephews are over so going anywhere is a big deal lol. Kiddos love the market but have no patience for Kroger, Sam's Club or the meat shop. Trader Joes is kid friendly but near the book store which always results in pleading to go there which is a whole new chaotic mess.

     2 at most. I do most of my shopping at Aldi, but for the few things I can't get there, I go to Price Chopper.

    We shop at Krogers weekly. DH has to shop with me and neither of us want to go more than one store.
