If you didn't have a grocery budget, how would you shop differently?
I would buy more local and organic foods--from veggies to meat. I'd probably shop the local co-ops. We have a really great one not far from me, but they're too expensive. So I stick to Super Target and Trader Joe's for most of my shopping needs.
I don't grocery shop at Wal-Mart. I'm surprised by the amount that do in the replies. The Wal-Mart near us just recently started selling groceries, but I still avoid it. When I lived near a Super Wal-Mart in the past, I found their fruits and veggies to be of a poor quality. So I feel like I'm wasting money if they're molding within two or three days of purchase.
Quoting Cindy18:I think I would shop about the same really. I like my menus and grocery list and LOVE a good deal. I would shop more speciality and local stores instead of the big box stores.

I wouldn't change the way or where I shop.
HAHA, I woudl buy too much by accident. But, we would go to the grocery store much less often. With me, I have to buy many of the more expensive natural and organic foods because of my son's food allergies. So, in that light, it won't change my buying habits at all either way.
I would probably buy more junk that we don't need but I like the way I shop. I love a good deal and having more money to use elsewhere!
I would buy organic and locally grown everything:)
Nothing would change. I shop how I want, and buy smart. Love a great bargain.
