Y'all are going to loooooooooove this!


The PPP team has just put together this amazing (seriously, amazing.) reference guide for you to use every time you shop Aldi, Target, and Walmart.



After we created the Aldi, Costco & Sam's Club price comparison chart a few weeks ago we knew it would be so interesting to see how the prices at Aldi, Target and Walmart stacked up, so we couldn't wait to get the information out to you, 


***Guys, I was shocked at the results.***


I've always kind of thought that Aldi was cheaper on just about everything, so when Costco and Sam's won on several items in the last list I was pretty surprised.

I never (ever?) would have expected Walmart and Target to be higher on so many items (not everything, but many things!), so the results were pretty interesting to me.


 Here are a few things you need to know to fully take advantage of this list:

  • These are everyday prices on these items and don't include any special sales at all. If you can wait for a sale at Target or Walmart you'll get a better price, so this is just your starting point.

  • We did the best we could to compare things evenly across the board. We looked at basic generic brands as much as we were able to (i.e. Up & Up for Target and Great Value for Walmart), and gave you the exact item name so you can compare too.
  • These prices were updated in the Southeast, so your pricing will vary some by store. This just gives you a handy little reference guide to get an idea of what to expect.
  • You'll want to compare to see how these prices stack up at Costco & Sam's Club as well ~ go HERE to print your free list for those stores.
  • ****MOST IMPORTANTLY**** This is such a valuable tool when shopping other store sales. A few weeks ago I was shopping the Mega Sale at Kroger and while I thought I was getting a good price on peanut butter, a quick look at this list let me know that I was getting a serious stock up price. Even if you don't use this list to compare these stores to one another, it is so stinkin' handy so that you'll always know when you're getting the very best price on an item.  WOOHOOO! 😉

  1. Thanks so much! I was considering investing the time to make one of these lists myself. Now I don’t have to Just found your site through Money Saving Mom. Can’t wait to check out all your resources.

  2. Thank you for this. I have started a comparison list a couple of times, but just didn’t follow through. This will help so much. I like the idea of using it to compare Kroger prices, too.

  3. Hi… I love how you guys put this together. … but unfortunately the cheapest don’t always work…and it’s coming from someone who has to save on everything. .. but I tried the eggs at Aldi for example and found it reay tasteless… also their (and others) honey gave me stomachache. .. most toilet paper and paper towels are just a waste of money. .. so I advise everyone to thread carefully before you switch. .. try but be ready for a return 🙂

    • It really was so hard to compare things exactly across all three stores because of that Aniko – I’ve been pleased with most things I’ve gotten at Aldi (our eggs have been great and are from a local farm which I love!) But, you definitely have to try all three stores to see if they work for you. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I really want to thank you for this!! I’m trying to embark on a once a month shopping trial and I need to set up a pricebook to get the most for my money. This will help me so much. Thanks again!!!

  5. Thank you so much. What a great help for saving money and time.

  6. any chance of being able to get an excel version of this so we can add in our own local store to the comparison?

  7. Wow! Thank you so much. I’ve done these before with our local stores and they take so long to do. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    I can’t access the download (utlimate aldi-target-walmart) and I’m a newsletter subscriber and liked your FB page. Can you help?

  9. Don’t forget that Target has 5% off using Target’s Check card. Need to fill in the form before getting the card. It is like a Debit card.

    I am lucky enough to have all three stores in my town. I question that the Aldi prices are not what my Aldi charges for ?? whatever item. We have a Super Walmart and a Walmart Market – YUCK! We also have a Target which can occasionally have some nice sales. However, I generally (almost ALWAYS) find that my Aldi will have the item for less, not the brand name, but their own brand. When I take into account my time, gas, and wear and tear on my car and nerves… I do much better at Aldi. I like the quality and the prices.

  11. Oh my goodness, I know this is from last year, but thank George Takei for linking me here. I would LOVE to see and Aldi vs Kroger vs Tom Thumb one of these! I am terrible at putting things like this together (and couponing)…I’m just way too ADHD to follow through, but I constantly question if I could be saving even more on my weekly shopping…I refuse to give money to Walmart, but I’ll do Target runs if I’m in a tight spot since they’re 5 seconds from my house. I would love some kind of comparison like this…what’s the easiest/most efficient way to track something like this without wasting a lot of gas???

  12. This is great! I would like to see a comparison between Walmart and Kroger and Publix. I find myself constantly going between these three stores trying to save a little money. Seems to me to Kroger usually comes out ahead.

  13. This is great information! Would you mind if I included it in articles I will be doing for the Prince William County (VA) Cooperative Extension newsletters and twitter site? We are working with clients to give them resources to help their money stretch as far as possible.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

  15. I can’t get anything to download from your website. No savings list, anything. What should I do?

  16. Teresa Israel says

    What about people who can’t print out the comparison cheat sheet. I am still learning about my phone and how to use it but it would be amazing if there was some way to get it old school (the postal service lol)

  17. penny wheatley says

    I cant get the list…will someone help me please? 😉

  18. I don’t think this handout is very useful! First it compares apples to oranges on some…like Smuckers jelly at Target to other brands at the other two. First, what is useful if you compare Smuckers at all three or Tide at all three. Next, if you want to do all 3 of their generic brand that is good but then you don’t know if on sale or if the name brand is on sale and is equal that week to the generic. Just too many other factors.

  19. I just found an error on the Costco, Sams and Aldi sheet. The shredded cheese at Costco is listed at 11.99 for a 2.5lbs, it’s actually a qty of 2 bags at 2.5lbs, so 5lbs total for $11.99.

  20. Do you have a updated version for 2017?

  21. Hey I would be interested in signing up for the email list if these are updated yearly! Could you let me know if email subscribers receive updated lists every year?

  22. I am in Australia, I still downloaded your price comparisons, I will try making one using ALDI, Coles, Woolworths and IGA (independent grocers Australia) will keep you posted,


  1. […] I went to Martins and bought groceries for 2 weeks and spent 240$. The next time I went to Aldi and spent 150$ for 2 weeks. That is a huge difference.
