    I really like Walmart, although it has a bad rep with some people.

    I love our Dollar Tree. I get all of my greeting cards & stationery there.

    I also love shopping at JCPenney, Sears, and Target--especially their clearance racks and "one day sales". I often combine these deals with GC's, and if I'm shopping online, I order through mypoints.com for even more savings.

    I like Dollar General. I would give just about anything to have a Building 19 or a Big Lots

    I like the Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores.

    Also Big Lots. Was able to buy a cafe set for $50 for my balcony. The same set cost around $90 at other stores around here.

    I only go into the dollar store when needed. Otherwise I end up with stuff I probably don't need.

    Honestly, I find the best deals at Costco. The unit prices on groceries tend to beat even the loss leaders at the grocery stores, and it saves me time to shop in bulk. I also purchase non-food items there (linens, automotive maintenance, housewares, flowers, etc) and get better quality things for better prices.

    If you spend enough, you can avoid paying an annual fee. We can do this because we purchase for 2 families with one membership.

    I like Aldi for food, especially fresh veggies and canned food.

    I like Dollar General and Family Dollar for their marked down and discount clothing, health and beauty products like make up and shampoo.

    I like Big Lots for the variety of things they have there.

    I love going to unique a thift store in the area. Also once or twice a month I will hit Aldis, chaps(a thrift store), the dollar store, and a bread store because they are very close to each other.

    I also, buy most things at Wal-Mart.

    I know alot of people don't like Wal-Mart, but that doesn't mean they are bad. I moved recently and Kroger and Harvest Foods are both closer. However, I pay tons more if I shop there. 12-pack of cans? $3.89 @ WM, paid $4.99 yesterday at Harvest foods. Can of chili? $1.50 at WM, $2.69 at Kroger.

    I'm trying not to shop at Wal-Mart so much anymore. Besides, now that I've been paying attention they're hardly cheaper anymore.

    Dollar Tree's pretty neat for kitchen tools, office supplies, etc.

    I also like Ross for other kitchen stuff & household items, and clothes.

    I live for thrift store shopping but our Goodwill is pretty terrible and we don't have anything else. I always hit up thrift store and stuff my suitcase when I'm back in Portland to see the fam.

    I'm seriously loving Costco, and I'm finding that some of the Kirkland brands are of better quality than national brands. Their mayo for example, is made with canola oil rather than soybean. That made my day! :lol

    Big Lots has been having alot of snack foods and Gatorade very inexpensive lately. Dollar Tree in the area has frozen foods that are name brand for $1 and Marc's is just AWESOME! Aldi's for the basics and Thrift bakeries for more snacks and breads(light and reg). Dollar General for the greeting card 2/$1
