Grocery Store Sales

When I sat down to do this blog, I discovered one problem with trying to compare prices at different grocery stores through their weekly ads: stores have different brands and different ways of presenting a sale (buy one get one free, 2 for $4.00, etc.). So this is a sample of what I found in the ads. Bi-Lo had the best price on Coke products at 2 for $6, along with 20 for $10 on Yoplait yogurts. Kroger has some Bush's beans on sale for 59 cents each, as well as Perdue chicken breasts for only $1.99 a pound. Wal-Mart is selling Ragu spaghetti sauce for 2 for $3 and some General Mills cereals for only $1.89. Food Lion has fresh deli ham on sale for $2.99 and Kraft salad dressings for 10 for $10. Lastly, Publix has strawberries on sale for 2 for $4.00, as well as Stouffer's entrees for 5 for $10.00. Of course, many of the deals require you to have a membership card, but that only takes a few minutes. Although I look at ads from multiple stores, I must admit that often I only shop at one or two stores for convenience. Does anyone drive around town and go to multiple stores for the cheapest items anymore?
