Default Gathered some very interesting info today!

I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but been busy, had 2 kids which is not good for thinking, etc etc. So today I told dh --- "I'm going out shopping."

What I did was take my wal-mart reciepts from the past 2 weeks, and went to Aldis, and Marcs (i don't know if you have marcs but it's a discount grocery store). I was very much not impressed with Aldis at all. But at Marcs, I took my receipts in, and circled everything on the wal-mart one that I could get for cheaper at Marcs. There were a LOT of things on the list! I know you have to be careful and know your prices (just like at the outlet malls) because some things are the same or more expensive at the "discount" store. For example our bread is 1.97 at Wal-Mart and was nearly 3.00 at Marcs.

What I checked were items that have a longer shelf life, because I realistically will only make it out there once every 2 weeks, but we can stock up. I was gone for 2 hours and came home with nothing but good info.

(I won't mention what I bought tonight once I got home though).

I have been keeping an eye on prices lately too, we got a new meijer in our "big town" and I figured there prices would be comparable to walmart wnd so far they seem more expencive on most things.
So what did you buy once you got home??
