  • Can I prefer both at once? LOL. Target always seemed to be a little cleaner (depending on where you are of course) and I LOVE that they have Starbucks in there. But to be quite honest with you, i've noticed on most items, the prices are the same. Unless your online of course then WalMart is #1 since they have the site to store thing. And the grocery part is super awesome. So I guess it depends on what I'm getting when I need to shop. Coffee and clothes for sure at Target and more food type items at WalMart.

  • Wal Mart. It's cheaper and I think they have a much better variety. When it comes to baby clothes though, I prefer Target! They have some really cute stuff from their "Circo" brand.

  • Target has some really great deals, sometimes. I like to go there periodically. I get a lot of the kids gifts there and sometimes there are some unbeatable finds. However, I mostly shop at Wal-Mart. It is closer to me and I think that the prices are generally better than Targets. But I will say the quality of clothing and shoes are much much better at Target.

  • I'm boycotting Wal Mart. It's hard, but I managed to get through this Christmas without going there. Mind you, this boycott has been going on for about 6 years and I am just starting to stick with it. As for the food, I would go there to grocery shop and end up spending twice as much because I have no self control!
    I love Target. You can find unique toys there and the clothes are way cuter. They always have the latest trends and I don't think they are really more expensive. Maybe a little, but worth it.
    I get my food stuff from the local grocery store now. Just put food in front of me.... no temptations! :)
