I love to go shop at the supermarket. When I’m alone and need to food shop, I feel relaxed, I learn new things and I have fun. Maybe I’m weird or cut from a different cloth, but I feel relaxed. As a military spouse you have the option to shop at the Commissary. At times, I like to get different food alternatives that sometimes the commissary may not carry, So here are some tips to choosing a supermarket other than the commissary.
I just moved from CA to NC, where Costco is about 2 hours from me. In CA Costco was like 5 minutes from me. So in NC, the commissary and Walmart is the two closet ones to me, but I just discovered harris teeter is about 10 minutes and I LOVE IT.
Meat & Produce Prices
At most commissary’s (to me) the meat prices are so much cheaper to me than other supermarkets. Most of the time, I like to go to Walmart or the farmers market for fresh produce.
Choosing a supermarket to me the most important thing is, if the supermarket have a good selection of good food alternatives. My husband doesn’t eat meat and I’m trying to say away from dairy products. So having other food alternatives helps me cook healthy meals for my family.
I love to coupon and reward cards. Where I can save money with quality food for my family.
Last but not least, I LOVE a clean supermarket, it motivates me for some reason to cook and try out different food options for my family.
