Comparison shopping

January 22nd, 2008 at 03:05 pm

Now that prices on food have increased significantly, I am doing a little updated price comparisons.
Yesterday, DH shopped for a few things at King Soopers (Kroger),(while waiting for glasses to be made next door) a store that doubles coupons.
I don't use many coupons, and have suspected that every-day prices at stores that double, make up for it with higher prices.
So, today, at Wal-Mart, I compared prices on the same brands, that DH purchased.The rice and beans were the respective House Brands.

18 large eggs: Kroger-$2.89 Wal-Mart $2.60
5# rice: Kroger $2.99 Wal-Mart $2.48
2# Gr. Northern beans Kroger $2.69 WM $1.42
Crisco 48oz. Kroger $4.89 Wal-Mart $3.94
5# Pillsbury flour Kroger $3.29 WM $1.96
SAVINGS: $4.35 on only five items! Staples that we always keep on hand.

Say what you want about Wal-Mart, but I will continue to shop there for staples, for which there are rarely,( or never) coupons available.

    I'm not wild about some of WM's practices but around here, they're one of the lowest on grocery prices. They beat Albertson's, Kroger's and the local chain except for on really good loss leaders. And since WM price matches, that helps. We do most of our grocery shopping there.
