12 item totals:

Harris Teeter: $57.15

Target: $52.86

Difference: $4.29

Harris Teeter was less expensive on 3 items and Target was less expensive on 8 items (1 item was the exact same). How will this impact my personal shopping? I’m still going to my local Teeter because I like the fresh veggies and meat, but I will try to get more of my commodity type items at Target. That said, my wife typically is the one that goes to Target because I freak out about their parking lot.
