Default Same boat

I logged in tonight (for the first time in many, many months) to ask this very same question. I also stopped couponing when Albersons left. It seems like Smith's might be an option, but I look forward to any input other may have.

I have really struggled with this too and feel like my grocery budget is OUT of control!! I really need to reign it in. I haven't used coupons as much either.

But....the things I do try to do and/or should try harder at:
1. Case Lot Sales--stock up on the great prices
2. I do try to price match Buy Low at Walmart--I would just go to Buy Low but live in Heber
3. I make sure to check the Smiths thread each week and if there's something awesome I go in. I no longer take the paper, if I need coupons I buy them online which is a lot less work for me or print occasional coupons
4. I shop Costco but have to really try hard to control myself while I'm there. I definitely spend a lot less when I avoid going there tho,
5. Walgreens for household stuff, but I have even slowed down there

Um...don't know if that helps anyone. I really don't like shopping at Walmart and would perfer Smiths but the price matching gets me everytime
