What are your grocery staples?

GroceryCart1About two years ago I polled readers, friends, & relatives on items they regularly bought at the grocery store.

I then whittled my list down to about three dozen different items which included everything from:

  • milk
  • eggs
  • butter
  • peanut butter
  • ketchup
  • loaves of bread (white and whole grain)
  • soda
  • I also included all sorts of  popular “dead animal”  choices like
      • boneless skinless chicken breast
      • pork chops
      • ground beef, chuck or round, etc.

Based upon their answers, I shopped all the major grocery stores in our area to find out who had the best regular prices.  (You can see those results here).  Because let’s face it, shopping the sales isn’t enough these days.  It’s what you put in your cart that isn’t on sale that can make a big difference, too!

A lot can happen in two years.  For one thing, my family has completely changed our shopping strategies.  Target now carries groceries.  Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly now doubles coupons and has increased the size of their store.  We’ll be getting a Costco in the fall.

I was thinking about doing the research again to see if there was any differences.  Is that 2011 informal study still relevant?

So I’m asking you:  what are your grocery must-haves?  Help me decide which items need to be on the list!
