Food Shopping at Target

I’m doing more and more food shopping at my local Target these days, because 9 times out of 10 their prices are better. And not just by a few cents; we’re talking dollars here!

Case in point: pictured is my favorite jarred pasta sauce, Newman’s Own Sockarooni Sauce. Our local supermarket carries it for $3.69 a jar, while at Target it is only $2.76. Dry pasta – particularly Target’s Market Pantry brand – is also much cheaper than national brands like Barilla, so I buy all my pasta and sauce at Target.

I also buy Orowheat bread (either 12-grain, Active Health or Double-fiber varieties) at Target as well because it’s usually at least a dollar less than at the supermarket, and they routinely put it on sale saving me even more $$. Likewise, cereal is a LOT cheaper at Target; my favorite “flavor” a while back was Post’s Great Grains Raisins, Dates & Pecans and I swear it was $2 LESS a box at Target than at the supermarket!

And it seems like every other week Target has soft drinks on sale; this week they have 3 12-packs of Diet Coke on sale for $11. I also watch for Target to put their Gatorade drinks on sale (at $4 a six-pack vs. $4.79) so I can stock up on G2s for my hubby and boys.

YES! people are always skeptical when i say it, but all the food I eat is cheaper there than it is at normal grocery stores (such as the Morningstar line). plus the Archer Farms line is amazing.

Yeah Target is top of their food game. They have super Targets in Louisiana

X and Gabrielle, thanks for agreeing with me. I was just at Target today and the woman ahead of me in line was buying - no joke - 12 boxes of FiberOne cereal! It must have been on special or something, but I'm sure she was buying in bulk because it's cheaper there than at the supermarket.
