Price Matching

Getting good deals really can turn a bad day into a great one for me. I guess it's sort of one of my hobbies. I really enjoy it... is that weird? The best way to describe it would probably be that getting free stuff and good deals is like a treasure hunt. When I find a treasure, it just makes me happy! Ha! Okay, yeah maybe I am weird :P I also love telling my friends and family about good deals so they can get them too.

So, since you all are my friends/family, I just wanted to share something that I think is awesome and might be valuable to you if you are looking to save money on groceries. Wal Mart price matches! Just bring in the ad and show the price to the cashier and he or she will adjust their price to the price in the ad. Amazing! :) Anyway, I always make 2 trips when I grocery shop. One trip to Fry's (my grocery store) since they double coupons and one trip to Wal Mart for produce. Here's what I got earlier this week for $4.27:

bananas: .49/lb
grapes: .50/lb
avocados: .25 each
cauliflower: .50/lb
cucumber: .16 each
So if you haven't tried price matching at Wal Mart yet, you should! (I sound like an advertisement for Wal Mart :P) Just wait for your grocery store ads in the mail and give it a shot. Produce can get expensive, so to me it's worth the extra trip, especially because my stores are pretty close to one another.

Here are some tips that I recommend:
#1 Go through your ads and circle what you want to price match ahead of time.
#2 After you do your shopping and you get to the register, separate your price matches from everything else. I always have them ring up the items I'm price matching first so I don't forget to show the ads.

Well let me know if any of you try it :)

I love Wal-Mart price matching and I've learned that they rarely ask for the ads (I forget them quite a lot!).

For produce, we go to Sprouts on Wednesday, their double special day, which means that all the specials from the week before and the week after coincide. Very handy :)
