{ask me anything} Shopping at More than One Store

This week's "Ask me Anything" question comes from a sweet reader, Tausha:

"Do you go to ALL the grocery stores, or do you have 1 that you love best and have had most luck at? (Safeway, frys, bashas, albertsons).  Same question for CVS vs Walgreens and Target vs Walmart.  So far I have been trying them all...but I think that might get hard fast. :)"

I usually stick Fry's and Safeway since they are close and I feel like they have the best deals.  Fry's probably has the best deal, in my opinion, but Safeway is definitely coming around.  I have never had much luck at Bashas or Albertsons.  I also like to make a bi-weekly trip to Sunflower Market or Sprouts for some super fresh produce and all-natural meats.

I also tend to shop at CVS way more than Walgreens.  CVS is waaay more coupon-friendly, and I find I can get the most items for free there!

I agree that hitting all the stores and trying to get every day would get exhausting really quickly!!  Since starting my stockpile, I have been able to cut out all those little trips and be really picky about what deals I snag!

Great question, Tausha -- thanks for asking!

So, readers, where do YOU shop... one store or more than one??  Thoughts?
Do you have a question about couponing, shopping, saving, meal planning, homeschooling, or even about me? No matter how big, small, or trivial it seems, someone else probably has the same question, so ask away! As long as it's respectful, I'm an open book so "Ask Me {almost} Anything!"

Just drop me a line and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.


  1. I do the same. I stick to one or two consistent stores but will drop in to another store if it's a really good price.

  2. I have taken for granted that Target is across the street (walking distance) and both Walgreens & CVS is down one block. I am very grateful to have them nearby.
