Don’t Buy Fresh Produce …
Buy this instead: Name-Brand Groceries
Neither Walmart nor Target is known for the freshest, best produce, said Kendal Perez, savings expert at coupon website CouponSherpa. Besides the quality, the prices aren’t that competitive, either.
“I often find better prices on produce from my local Sprouts Farmers Market,” she said. That being said, both stores offer many ways to save on the cost of food.
“Both Target and Walmart are competitive when it comes to name-brand groceries, like cereal, yogurt, condiments and other popular food products,” said Perez.
For example, Honey Nut Cheerios from Ralphs costs $3.39 for a 12.25-ounce box. On the other hand, you can score a Family Size, 21.6-ounce box at Target for only $3.99 and a Giant Size, 26.6-ounce box at Walmart for $5.59.
