go grocery shopping, do you go to one store or several stores to hit the bargains?
several stores to hit the bargains.
One store. Grocery shopping takes long enough as is, I don't want to drive all over the place just to save a few cents. It all evens out.
I go to the sales
Quoting Bradensmommy719:Depends on what we are getting. Usually 2 stores.
It depends upon what time of year it is, and what I need. I've learned that some, not all things are cheaper at club stores (we have a BJ's membership). Cheap enough that it's worth paying the membership fee, since I go there at least once every other week or so. I usually buy the majority of my meats from there because the quality is better (surprisingly) and price wise, they're right on par, if not cheaper than Walmart. (which is where I normaly shop) I also buy most frozen veggies, baking supplies, and all of the baby's diapers there. Everything else is bought at Walmart with the exception of produce if it's late spring through fall. We have a local farmstand that sells produce from May to around Thanksgiving. They grow most of their produce themselves. Anything they don't grow is grown locally from around the New England area. I get sad when late fall/winter hits because then I'm forced to buy mediocre produce from Walmart again. (It's really the only smallish grocery store in town.) Oh, and we've started buying our milk and cream from the local dairy instead of the grocery store. It tastes so much better because it's fresh. It's also organic, and costs a little less (surprisingly) than the organic milk at the grocery, and not too much more than a "normal" gallon of milk. And their half gallons are glass, which I love. Maybe it's in my head, but something about milk from a glass jug tastes so good! Plus their cream is super thick, so it goes a long way. Their heavy cream is almost like butter, it makes amazing whipped cream.
