About a month ago, Super Walmart opened up in our town, and while itís now convenient to have this super center in our town, Iím still finding better deals at some local super markets.
Supermarkets vs. SupercentersI decided to conduct a bit of an experiment this week and compared Super Walmart prices with the supermarket Logli/Schnucks where Iíve been doing a lot of my shopping since I started coupon shopping.
Here is what I bought at Logli last Thursday evening. This grocery store doubles coupons up to 55 cents. I also did some of my weekend shopping here, so youíll notice some items I did not have coupons for.
My total at Logli came to $43.56 after tax and after $6 back in Catalinas to use this week!!! This store also has a loyalty card program which gives me discounts on fuel at Mobile stations, so even though a few things might have been more expensive, I was able to earn points on my card.
Monday morning, I made a trip to Super Walmart and this is what I found:
My total at Super Walmart would have been $56.83 plus tax and after coupons.
Here's the comparison of the stores side-by-side:
As you can see some things were cheaper at Logli and with my coupons they were even a bigger discount (soup and Totinos pizza rolls). Some things were also more expensive, but after my coupons were doubled, they were actually cheaper or the same price as items at Walmart (Sargento products). So I had about a $13 dollar savings by shopping at a supermarket, which doesnít seem like a lot, but when you add it up over a year, it makes a huge difference on my grocery bill.
Bargain BuysTarget has some good $5 gift card offers going on this week. They also have 79 cent Tazo Tea (9-11 SS) 33 cent travel size Tide (10-2 P & G), 62 cent Gerber Graduates (after printable from coupons.com). Also select Suave products are as low as 92 cents (10-2 RP). Check out Walgreens for moneymaker Halls lozenges (9-18 SS), free Arrid deodorant, possible free Covergirl products (10-2 P &G), and $1.50 Listerine Smart Rinse (10-9 RP).
