Not sure if you have one by you, but Whole Foods is a lot cheaper for baby food than Target. $0.58/baby food jar compared to $0.87 at Target. We were shocked - SHOCKED - that what was once a premium store (we used to call it Whole Paycheck) has now started competing on price for certain items. Kashi brands are usually about $1 cheaper than the regular grocery store as well. Of course not everything is cheaper but it's worth comparison shopping!

Thanks for the idea! Unfortunately, we do not have a Whole Foods near us. The area is growing so maybe in the future we will!
