My Weekly Savings: Price Matching Is My Friend

I did a really quick trip to Walmart on Friday to pick up a very few items, most of which were price matched.

  • (4) bags of 12-oz cranberries – price matched to Aldi’s @ $.99 each
  • 1 10-lb bag of Russet potatoes – price matched to Adli’s $ $1.97
  • 4 boxes of Wacky Mac @ $1.08 each
  • 1 bunch of bananas @ $.42/lb (price matched to Costco – I was shocked they PM’d Costco, but I asked and the gal said yes!)

Later in the day, I drove right past an Aldi, so actually ran in to get their store brand of cream cheese and light cream cheese, both of which are on sale this week for $.89 each.

Total spent: $16.61

Highs: Cheap cranberries (these freeze well, too!) And saving $5.28 through price-matching alone!

Lows: None – quick trip, everything went well! Hooray!
