In our area, the food prices at Kroger (with "VIP" card) are just as good as those at the supersize WalMart, with better produce, meat, seafood, wine and deli departments. For baked goods, Fresh Market tries really hard to match the old-fashioned European-style bakery goods.

We are fortunate that our area has a pretty darn good selection of places to shop for groceries. Aldi, Whole Foods, Fresh Market, Publix, Kroger, Trader Joe's, Costco, Target and Walmart.

We probably ought to buy our drugs at Costco or at WalMart pharmacy with their $4.00 generic deals. However, Walgreens and CVS are hard to beat as far as drugstores go.

One thing WalMart does provide, though: the ability to buy all of the above, plus toys, household goods, seasonal items, sports gear, ugly clothes, electronics and automotive, all under one roof. It can save a lot of driving around to the specialty places. Plus, it definitely saves a lot of time to get everything in one trip.
