I workd near a WF so I'm there a lot.

Their 365 b rand chocolate chunks have 72% cacao and are healthier than the choc chips sold locally so I get them.

Naked juices are a dollar less each there.

I buy other things only if they are on sale or if I can't get them elsewhere.

Sometimes you can find a real bargain at the WF...it's nice to have an idea of what you pay for things already and only look at those things you normally use. Then when you have scoped those out, then look for those items you rarely find or have never seen and know you will be paying for the novelty.

No, I meant scoped out those things you would normally buy and compare the prices. Some you will find are more expensive (of course) but sometimes you can find something you normally use at a cheaper or comparable price, or only pennies more for a better product (less additives).

Like I don't mind spending the extra 5 cents a can for Glen Muir Tomatoes at our WF-type store (locally owned) if it keeps me out of Wal-mart.
