When you’re on a tight personal budget, grocery shopping can be a particular challenge. If you’re buying one big item, such as a kitchen appliance or a computer, you can compare prices ahead of time and find the store with the best deal. But if you’re shopping for groceries, you may not have the time or inclination to compare prices or to shop at multiple stores to get the best price on everything on your list.
Advertising aside, there’s no single store that has the best deals on everything. A 2014 study by Kantar Retail proved this by comparing grocery prices at six budget chains. It found that each of the six chains had better deals on some products than others, and none of them had the best prices on every product.
