Is It Ever A Good Idea To Buy Groceries At Walmart?
By CHASE SHUSTACK
Although Walmart claims to have the lowest prices anywhere, there are many who doubt the claim is true. As rising food prices make it harder to find one place where you can get the most food at affordable prices, it helps to know what the best items are to buy at Walmart, or you may find yourself paying more than you thought you would.
Per GOBankingRates, to make purchasing groceries affordable, keep an eye out for certain products and brand names. For example, if you're looking for items that you aren't too particular about, purchase cheaper generic items, but stay away from the Great Value brand due to its "lackluster" quality for the price.
CNBC recommends stocking up on affordable Walmart items like snacks and cereals, but it also suggests purchasing Great Value products, such as spices and other look-alikes, as a majority of them are made by the same manufacturers of name-brand products, such as Cool Whip. Shopping at Walmart is fine, but avoid taking the "low prices" claim at face value.
