Comparison Shopping

I kept being told how Fry's is so cheap and the first Wed. of the month is senior days. So with my list in hand I headed for Fry's. The prices are so much higher than Walmart. I did save $31. after the seniors discount. But that included 2 $25. gift cards. I did not get all the things I needed because the prices were so much higher. So as I see it I didn't save anything. I think I would have spent the same amount and bought all the stuff I needed at Walmart.
I usually buy a bag of skinless, boneless chicken breasts at Walmart for 6.98 at Fry's it was 10.98, Yuban coffee is 7.99 at Walmart and 11.98 at Fry's. Nope won't go back there again. BTW in some states or even other city's it is called Kroger.

That was about it for today. I have been working on a blanket the rest of the day. But did do a couple walk around out side as it was warm but still cloudy.

Good Night All


  1. Kroger's? Well that explains it!

  2. Wow, I have never found Walmart to be higher. We must be shopping for different items. No matter, at least there is more than one choice for a grocery store. Right?

  3. Make that Walmart to be lower....never once.

  4. Wow that's a big difference in price. Really pays to know your prices these days when shopping - especially for grocery items I reckon.....

  5. Hi Gypsy,

    I knew that but the lure of a discount had me, but only once for sure.

    Hi JMD,

    One time around Christmas I was at Walmart and there were buses in the parking lot. I asked why all those people were here she said the prices were cheaper than in Nogales. so I guess different areas have different prices.

    Hi Leslie,

    Yes it is amazing the difference in prices. But I went I spent and won't go back.

  6. Here we have very few grocery stores, since Walmart drove them all out of business...I can save the most money at IGA, and we have a Piggly Wiggly, and a Food Lion thats it!
    Hope you get your blankets done, I enjoy making gifts--one yr I gave everyone a home made birdhouse..not sure they all liked my crooked handiwork

  7. Hi Sondra,
    We have IGA's here too but not the others. Since it is pouring down rain today I hope to get lots done on the blanket. I love bird houses my dad made me 2 and one just feel apart it was really cute. Hope to find someone to fix it for me. It was so cute.

  8. I take it your Fry's is a grocery store. Here it's a tech discount store.

  9. Hi Trouble,

    Yes they also go by Fred Meyers (sp)
