My "Boots on the Ground" Report - Comparison Shopping Pays Off!

By Tim Gamble  12-6-2022

As SouthernPrepper1 continues his "Boots on the Ground" series on his You Tube channel (link: https://www.youtube.com/user/southernprepper1), I will occasionally post on this website my own personal observations of what I am seeing and experiencing in my area (small town in western North Carolina).

Comparison Shopping Pays Off!

Supply chain problems and high inflation over the last year or so has created a situation with large disparities in prices from store to store, and not always in expected ways. What do I mean by this? Let me give you an example I am experiencing with eggs in my area.

Last week, my local Walmart had their large white eggs priced at $5.48 a dozen. My local Ingles Supermarket had their large white eggs priced at $3.88 a dozen. Ingles was $1.50 a dozen cheaper than Walmart last week.

This week, that Walmart has the same large white eggs at $5.27 a dozen. That same Ingles has their large white eggs at $3.18 a dozen. Ingles is $2.09 a dozen cheaper than Walmart this week!

The way thing used to be, it was safe to assume that Walmart is the cheapest store for most items. That is no longer the case. Don't assume Walmart is cheaper than other stores. Instead, do as much comparison shopping as possible!
