I shop at Walmart

BY BRETT ANDERSON/ST.CROIX ADVISORS, LLC

Yes, I shop at Walmart. I shop at Walmart for all the staples in my families life. I shop at Walmart to save money, especially our grocery bill. Food is one of our major household expenses each month, and I suspect it’s the same in your home. Walmart does save us money on our day to day grocery items.

Recently we started using the Walmart Grocery Pickup service. And wow, it is convenient and saves time and money. They let you know when your order is ready, and they can even tell when you are on your way to pick them up – a little “Big Brother” but that’s Ok.

With these savings, I’m not a big coupon clipper and it doesn’t seem coupons are as prevalent as they once were.

Costco, Lunds & Byerlys, Cub, Aldi and Trader Joe’s are also places I shop. Each one o has items we like but I’ve yet to find one a one stop shop. By the way….Aldi has excellent German chocolate at a cheap price.

So with a little planning each week, it’s not hard to save money on your grocery bill. And put more cash into your pocket.
