Because of all the "stuff" that has gone on with my family this year . . . my garden is pitiful. : ) So, I decided to try price matching at WALMART! So far it has been working wonderfully!! It couldn't be any easier. : )
(NOTE: Make sure you pay attention to the Walmart prices! Sometimes they are cheaper than any of the grocery stores.)
Steps to a smooth transaction:
1. Tell the cashier up front that you will be price matching the fresh produce.
2. Lay out each ad that you will be using on the belt (with the advertised produce side facing up).
3. Place the produce on top of the corresponding ad.
4. Cashier picks up the produce and the ad to match at the same time.
Once again, I put together a spreadsheet listing all the fresh produce in the ads (the ones that I have - Giant Eagle, Shop 'n Save, Aldi, Foodland, Khun's, Save a Lot, and BiLo) this week. I've listed out all the prices for the produce so that you can easily see which store has that item advertised and where it is the cheapest. You can then either shop the store(s) of your choice or you can take your whole stack of ads to Walmart and have them price match the lowest advertised prices for all the items.
(NOTE: If you didn't recieve the above ads in the mail, just print off the add from the linked websites above and take that into Walmart. As long as the sale dates show up on the print out, Walmart will honor the ad. Also, make sure that you do not print any of the ads before they officially begin in the stores as most of the time the ads are not posted/updated on the stores' websites until the day the items go on sale in the store.)
Produce Picks Sept. 22-27
By the way, I'm open to adding more stores if anyone wants to either volunteer, suggest a store, and/or figure out how to get me an ad for that store.
