we used to send stuff to work but I think with the amazon shipping when its not UPS / FED EX / UPS there are lots of issues we have with the packages getting sent to the wrong office within our building, (when its some dude in an 1983 ford escort delivering packages) most of the time we eventually get them but this year we used those lockers inside whole foods that amazon ships to for free. Note at no time did we shop or buy anything at whole foods, although I did step on some gluten free bread that was stacked up next to the amazon lockers..

I read that as you buy a lot from whole foods.

They did have the best decorated ginger bread house I have ever seen in person, probably done by the cashier with his degree in art history

I'm feeling a lot of hostility for Whole Foods here, and it, seriously, brought a tear to my eye.

That tear is the body's reaction of some allergy. I'm sure there's an essential oil for that.

Essential oils are the devil.  Give me some blackberry brandy, with the drunk Polack on the front, and I'll be healed of everything!

^^Agreed.  I like going there because they're one of the few places with creamed honey that don't charge an arm and a leg.  Plus they have a variety of cheese that I can peruse but not spend my whole paycheck on.

I have never seen anything at TJ's or Whole Foods worth the fuss IMO.

We feed a family of 4 now (5  before jr went to college) but best bang for the buck is Kroger for us, we may occasionally go to sprouts but that's about it..

Now if they would bring ALDI to Denver we would be back into the grocery's for under $100 a week again..

I like ALDI, there are actually a bunch kinda near me, but it's difficult to go to during the week due to their limited hours and the weekend...is a bit scary there.  I usually hit up Costco or BJs, tbh, but I'm a single person...so I really only need to go grocery shopping once every 2-3 weeks.

Fred Meyer sounds like a tired Jewish lawyer who just wants to go home after a long day in the industry.

I assume this is not true.

Aldi’s generally set up in lower middle class areas but man were they cheap!

When we moved to Denver we were very “house poor” so we shopped at Safeway, wal mart, Kroger and Costco and put all the receipts in a spreadsheet and for this area Kroger is the lowest overall cost. Even cheaper than wal mart.

We still shop at Costco for bulk meat and specialty items / like there very berry sundaes!

Yesssss-I get the best of both worlds!  Long Island is, unfortunately, someplace where the very rich communities are abutting very poor communities, within less than a 10-minute drive, so it pretty much means I have all the Aldi's//Trader Joe's/Whole Foods/C-Town/HMart/etc. within my reach.  Also my nearest Costco and BJs are right across the street from one another, so some weeks BJs will be cheaper for my bulk purchases (yogurt, raspberries, honey, flour, etc.) and then the next week Costco will have suddenly slashed their prices to be a $1+ cheaper.  Plus BJs has gas.

I never realized how much I would think about groceries when I grew up; not to eat, but just to talk about them and their pricing with adults.

It's as big a mystery as why Vince Neil raps the lyrics to Girls Girls Girls in live performances instead of singing them.
