I use Wal-Mart for the basics and pantry staples since they are the cheapest. I get my produce and meat at one of two locally owned markets since they have the best and the best prices. Of course based on the weekly sales that sometimes changes.

I'm like Dave, I do Walmart or other big stores for the dry goods that are really cheap and hit either Safeway or Save On Foods for the rest.

You folks down south won't know Save On Foods but it is pretty awesome.

We frequent Aldi's, walmart and winn-dixie. When I want something good, I go to Publix. That is the only place I can find flat iron steaks.

I shop at a variety of stores. Where I shop is influenced by prices, location, and what I need at the time.

Winco - Basic groceries and produce
Costco - Bulk items, pork, beef, chicken breasts, coffee, paper products
Trader Joe's and Whole Foods - specialty items
Walmart - Shampoo, toothpaste, vitamins, cold and allergy meds, pet food, etc.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

I will go there on a Tues when they have their 5% for senior and only if they have something on sale that I need. Since hubby is retired , we are more careful about spending.
There is not TJ or Costo , or Whole Foods near us , so never been there.
Those are the two stores my Mom shops at all the time. I miss Wegman's. They don't have any stores on the west coast. When I lived in NY state, I shopped at Wegman's, Sam's, Wal-Mart and a local grocery called Quality Markets, which is going out of business. They used to be HUGE in western NY!

Out here in western WA, I shop at Safeway the most, WinCo and Costco (they have the best pizza around!!).

A little kindness goes a long way.
