Today I did a large grocery haul at Walmart. Walmart is a great store for budgets because not only do they have great everyday prices, they also price match identical product from competitors. It really is a one stop shop because they have departments for almost all your needs.
This didn’t mean to turn into an ad for Walmart (not actually an ad!). I often shop at local stores as well, but today the majority of the food deals were at Walmart, and I could price match the others. I also had my toddler with me so it was a good one stop shop.
Today I spent $160 on groceries. Ouch. What I bought ranged from fresh produce all the way to cleaning products. I shopped Walmart’s sales, and then matched the remainder of the product from competitors using the Reebee App and by using cashback on Checkout 51.
My husband has a thing for fresh vegetables right now. He prepares an assortment of fresh veggies to take in his lunch each day. His current favourites? The oh so expensive celery ($3.47!) and baby carrots ($1.97). Celery is not in season right now so it’s expensive but he insists on it.
My Best Savings
These pork back ribs were $18.82 at Walmart which is insane. I matched a local competitor, and ended up paying $9.40 which equals a savings of $9.42 (more than half price!). I plan on doing slow cooker ribs with these, and serving them with asparagus and baked potato. A savory weekend meal.
I am one of the few who prefer margarine over butter. I am also a bit of a margarine snob, and prefer the Becel brand over any others. These margarine containers were $3.54/each at Walmart. I matched a competitors price at $1.99/each, which equaled a savings of $3.16 for two. I also submitted them for cash back on Checkout 51, which gave me an additional $.75/each for a total savings of $4.66. Each container ended up costing me $1.29!
Is there anything better than bacon? Each package of bacon was regularly priced at $5.97, and I paid $3.00/each. That equals a savings of $6.00! Bacon is a staple here. I use it in a variety of recipes, and I also use it for that classic fry up breakfast. Mmm.
The remainder of the groceries equaled savings ranging from a quarter to several dollars. I’m always on the hunt to find great deals! Let me know if you liked this post and if you’d like to see a full on grocery haul.
