In the interest of science I chose to shop at Walmart this week instead of Aldi.
Well, not really. I was in a hurry and just wanted to stop at one store. I was afraid to find out what my total would be because generally Walmart prices are higher on most items despite their advertising.
Walmart Produce and Dairy
I did not purchase as much produce as I normally do because the prices were too high but I was able to purchase a huge cantaloupe for $1.98, organic green onions for $1.33 and a 1 pound bag of mini sweet peppers for $2.98.
I splurged a little and purchased organic milk since that was an option. I paid double the Aldi price for a gallon of milk so I am not sure that it was a wise move on my part. 🙂
Walmart Meat & Grocery Items
If you need to feed a big family chicken leg quarters are one of the cheapest meats you can buy. We make BBQ chicken with them and the kids love them. I also purchased frozen shrimp which was not on sale $6.98 per bag), but we have not had any for a while and I was low on will power.
Weekly Total: $130.10
July Monthly Total: $495.07
(I am slightly over budget for this week, but I made my $500 goal for the month – woohoo! )
