    RealStory: Walmart actually lets you use a printout and not the actual store ad?

  • RealStory Jan 19, 8:03 a.m.

    Love this list - Ive found if I'm planning to do some shopping at walmart, I'll print this list (and the individual store lists) that you post and use it to get items price matched. Has saved me a lot of money, and (sometimes) helps with not getting a cashier making up their own 'policies' about what they can/cant pricematch.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 17, 8:25 a.m.

    That is a good deal, watchhillgirl - thanks!

    That's too bad, little blue. Hopefully you were able to get a raincheck to use when the split chicken breast is restocked.

  • watchhillgirl Jan 17, 7:33 a.m.

    Cucumbers at Aldi's are only .49 each. If you are going that way, it is a pretty good deal right now.

  • little blue 2 Jan 17, 7:14 a.m.

    I went to two different Krogers, and neither had the split chicken breast. The man at Maynard/High House said they didn't have any in the warehouse, and didn't know when they would get any. I got the deal at Lowes Foods, only they're not name brand.
