How I Get The Very Best Deal At Walmart Every Time

What I do now to make sure I'm getting the best deal on groceries, is I fill my Walmart cart on the app with my biweekly grocery order.  Then, I go out to my favorite grocery store on a Saturday, and I literally compare prices of the 2 stores in real time.  I buy the best deal in person at the store I'm at, and when I get home, I submit the Walmart order for what's left and I feel like a grocery shopping CHAMP.

Why We Hate Walmart

For me, it's a love/hate thing.  I hate hate hate the poverty wages they pay employees.  I hate that the produce and meat kind of suck.  I love that I can afford more things when I'm shopping Walmart.  It may be a buck or 2 or even just a few cents when we're talking groceries, but that all adds up.

And let's be honest with each other, most of us hate hate hatey mchaterson the rich, and the Walton Family, they're Richy Rich rich.
