Our family is lucky in that my wife has time to go shopping at multiple grocery stores. Many people are limited by time to one trip per week. This can mean having to pay more for groceries with some items not on sale. But, our situation allows my wife to find the best deals. She spends more time shopping at multiple grocery stores, but is able to buy more items on sale.
I always track our spending and I had a hunch that our breakdown by store might have changed. So, I went through our last few months of charges and came up with the following breakdown.
Breakdown In Spending – Shopping At Multiple Grocery Stores
This is our data from our credit card statement. It’s not scientific at all. I would say it’s fairly accurate, but there are definitely some issues. For example we buy some staples at Costco. But I didn’t include any of our Costco spending in here. It’s simply too hard to figure out (or guess) the allocation that goes towards groceries. At least at the grocery store, it’s fairly safe to assume you’re buying groceries.
With no further ado, here is our grocery store breakdown.
