How Much Are You Spending on Groceries?

How Money Are You: Trip to the Grocery Store, Trader Joe's

It's true what they say: you should never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Even though I know better, sometimes I find myself wandering the aisles with a grumbling stomach, and before I know it, my basket is full. It's a good thing Trader Joe's helps keep my costs down. Can you guess the prices on some of the items I grabbed at the grocery store? Take the quiz!

I miss TJ :( I got 3/5. You really get what you pay for at Wal-Mart. I don't even find the prices to be that much cheaper.

Allison, that's an interesting link. I don't think I would switch to Walmart for its lower local organic, like the article said: "Just as Wal-Mart has driven local stores out of business across the country, it could do the same with local food vendors. This means that your regional agricultural sector could become dependent on Wal-Mart to sell its produce, which means if Wal-Mart demands to buy the same produce at a lower price, they have no choice but to say yes." I only shop there 3 or 4 times a year, and I really don't like this idea at all. I mean, low prices are great, but not if it means putting more local stores out of business.

Interesting quiz. I'm a Trader Joes junkie, but now I've been thinking about switching over to stores like Wal-Mart that are now offering local, organic produce. http://blog.greensherpa.com/index.php/personal-finance/produce-wars-wal-mart-or-whole-foods/ What do you think of this idea?
