Guest Post: Local Ad Match

Regina has put together an ad match for us again. Thanks R!

I haven't done Walgreens or Target yet...)

A little about my shopping habits: I mostly buy produce. Since I make most of my own foods (like bread, pancakes, side dishes), buy locally as much as is reasonable, and avoid dangerous ingredients (like aspartame, MSG, artificial color, hydrogenated oils), most things at the grocery store are ruled out. But I'm adding some things to the following list that are good buys, even if I may not purchase it myself. I shop for produce using Dr. Weil's rule, choosing what is available in this order: Fresh Organic Produce, Fresh Local Produce, Fresh store produce, Frozen Organic produce, Frozen conventional produce, canned or bottled or juiced produce last.
Below are the lowest advertised prices for sale items.

To use this list:
1. take it to each store listed, the lowest priced item is listed under its store
2. take it to Wal-Mart, buy what is listed and tell them to ad match at the register (note that WalMart does not carry all brands, such as Best Choice or Always Save)
