Wal-Mart Shopping and Price-Matches

Wal-Mart is still the best place to get produce. I price-match the best sales from area stores all at Wal-Mart. Even though Target also price-matches now, it is harder to do for produce. And since ours is a Mini-Super Target, the selection is very limited and you have to price-match even the vegetable brand name. So it is better to stick to Wal-Mart for now.

If you prefer to shop elsewhere because you don’t like being at Wal-Mart, produce is usually very cheap at the Grocery Outlet off Fairfield Ave in Pensacola. Just remember they add a surcharge of 10% and only meats and produce are reasonably priced. Other items are expensive, so only perimeter shop.

I spent $54.25 on food and 4 Glade products and bought my kids 2 tennis shoes for $9 each. Most of them were price-match items but some were full-price or bought with coupons. If you want, you can still price-match these food items through Tuesday.
If the price has a letter in front of it, then it was price-matched at these stores: B=Barnes, WD=Winn-Dixie, P=Publix, F=Food World. Wags=Walgreens
