I can't figure out why the Super Target stores aren't pricing themselves a lot better.

Last week i paid $3.99 for a gallon of skim milk at Super Target. H.T has remained at $3.49 (or .59 i cant remember). I will say at times Super Target has some good prices and sometimes not so good. H.T will have a lot of good deals when it is on sale.

I don't really like our Harris Teeter (Stevens Mill). We get the basics- bagels, cream cheese, cereal, soups, spices, eggs, etc. at Target in Stonecrest (after Church on Sundays since we are down that way). They have a better selection of groceries than other targets. We shop at Lowes Foods for the rest: milk, bread, veggies, fruit, etc. It seems that the only way to make our budget is to stick to the list. We tried the bulk thing, but it seems the food goes faster!

My favorite store is Lowes Foods in the Arboretum. Its the only one where they have the fresh bread rolls that I like.

However, its definitely not the cheapest....

I'll do a BJ's run once a week for milk (3.19/gallon for 2%...incredible) butter and some other items....I'll get my fresh veggies at the farm by my house and I'll do Walmart for most stuff....If I ever have to do an impulse buy it will be from HT because its so close to my house...

Trader Joes is our top choice. I would say that I do 99% of my shopping there. I love that they have great prices and healthier options than most grocery stores. We try hard to do no process food and we don't do any high fructose corn syrup. We did go to Lowes for the first time this weekend and we pretty impressed with their organic selection. We will probably go there when we need something close by.
