Walmart Shopping Trip – $87.75 Worth Of Merchandise For $42.42

walmart 8-9

See Tonya’s Walmart grocery trip.

She doesn’t have any stores that double coupons.

She saves money by price matching & using coupons. She does not shop like a

‘normal shopper’,  since her freezers & pantry are both well stocked.

This allows her to only shop for items on sale, fresh produce & fresh dairy on a weekly basis.

Her grocery budget is $60 per week.  Any money left over is saved for the following week or used to buy produce from the Farmer’s Market.

She also has a garden that helps her save money on fresh vegetables.

Today’s trip would have been $87.75 but only cost her $42.42 plus tax after coupons & price matching.

She saved $45.33!!

    My WalMart had their summer stuff deeply discounted. The very nice pool towels were down to $3 and the pools were over half off. I got a 15′ diameter one for $100. They come with the cover, ground tarp, skimmer and filter. Original price was $299.

    Walmart should have them, but you should take them anyway.
    She did good. I won’t buy meat or produce at Walmart tho.

    When you PM do you have to have the other stores ad? Or does Walmart have the ad?

    I’m sorry to hear that. I understand about not liking change. I am not fond of change either. Walmart isn’t as bad as people make it out to be (as far as price matching goes). The majority of the time everything goes off without a hitch for me. Once in a while I hit a bump in the road with someone being rude or not knowing the policy. Everyone has off days, so I take it & go on about my business. 🙂 ~ T

    In my market Giant eagle, Kroger and Meijer still double. Meijer will stop in Aug 25th which is a main store for me. So If they all stop I will have to change where and how I shop. So I can see more and more people adapting to the price matching more because it is the only other way to get the best price.

    I don’t have any stores around my area that double, so price matching have been a huge money saver for me. ~ Tonya

    I really think more people will be price matching do to all the changes with doubling that is going on right now. I told my husband I have never had to change how I shop. However I think its in everyone’s future. Change is horrible and when you have alot of change at once its going to make it alittle more complicated.

  8. Do you PM just so your not having to run store to store? I might just have to try this my Kroger does not double anymore, and I have not found another way to save. My walmart is so bus,y do you shop at certain times just to avoid the  crowds, or does it not take them that much longer to PM everything. I have never done this before, but after reading your post a few times it obviously works and saves you lots of money, and Im all for that 🙂
