The coffee is brewing with one of my favorite blends, Dunkin Donuts coffee I pick up when it's a good price.
It's time for our weekly coffee klatsche.
Today let's talk about our shopping habits. Where we like to shop for groceries. How much we now order online as opposed to shopping in our own town. How we manage to save money, etc.
Probably my favorite place to shop is Target. It isn't a Super Target. Just one that started carrying some food. Their grocery prices rival Walmarts. And it's quieter!
My favorite thing about shopping there is that their produce is always good. Once I asked the woman stocking the strawberries why I never seem to find many blemishes on them, and she said: "that's because I won't put them out here if they don't look good."
I can purchase two cartons of strawberries and it will last me a week to ten days by only using on my morning cereal.
I do buy lots of things on Walmart.com though, because of getting free shipping over $50. And I love the convenience of it coming straight to my door, as opposed to me parking in the garage outside the fence and lugging the groceries a good ways and then up the porch steps.
What washer detergent do I prefer? For years and years I've been buying one detergent for my clothes. And that is All Free & Clear. I seem to be allergic to many perfumed detergents. This one has served me well. I only do laundry about once per week now with it just being me and the pupsters.
How often do I grocery shop? Not more than once per week. I haven't been cooking lately. (Still don't like a gas stove, so I find all kinds of excuses not to cook!)
Okay, tell us about your shopping habits. Do you have any hints to help the rest of us save money?
