I broke down and did food shopping at Walmart a few weeks back and saved a ton of money (even with spending $30 on gas as its 150 miles roundtrip)...but...ok, not trying to offened anyone...is the Great Value Brand total crap? Or is it just me?

I only like their pudding. It doesn't taste as watered down as the Jell-o ones lol.

I use store brand of just about everything...unless I have a really good coupon/sale.  I don't have a problem with Great Value brand, but I use mostly that or Kroger Value brand, so I might not be a good judge either.

I tried great value brand for zipper bags and they were great. I will buy name brands on sale or with coupons...I will get a few to last me till next time, so I'm not stuck with the other brands...coupons are a wonderful thing!

I like the name brand stuff for baggies and what not. But I can totally tell the difference in food products. I hate Great Value food

I dont care for Walmarts store brand either.
I usually do all my grocery shopping at Kroger and I've found I save more there since they double coupons and Walmart doesnt.

We only have a couple high end stores in town. One has a store brand called Western Family that is not too bad. The other has mostly named brand stuff, local foodd, and TONS or organics. But I am easily spending up to $500 a month for the 3 of us. ...since we pay resort town prices.

It's going to sound odd but check out Amazons grocery section. They have good stuff at reasonable prices and free delivery a lot of the time. There's a lot of organic and specialty stuff.

Quoting 5BMom:

I think so. But I don't buy my food at Walmart anymore. I only shop at King Soopers cuz I could really use the fuel points lol.
