A WALMART expert has recommended three items that will save you money when you shop at the retail giant.
The retailer is known for its low prices, but that sometimes can mean sacrificing quality.
However, there are specific things one savvy shopper recommends picking up at Walmart, over any other store.
- Dried spices
- School supplies
According to GO Banking Rates contributor Maddie Duley, Great Value offers a wide variety of spices that can be purchased for as little as 98 cents a bottle.
The Walmart house brand offers generic and organic spice options that are less expensive than the name brand.
The world's largest retailer also offers a large variety of cereals in huge bags that allow customers to buy in bulk. However, Duley offers one tip: put the cereal in a container for storage purposes.
The third great buy is school supplies. During back-to-school season, the expert says Walmart offers unbeatable school supply prices with notebooks for as little as 25cents.
There are other Walmart shopping tips Duley offers up, including:
Buy Walmart's private labels
Several popular Walmart brands to look for include Great Value, Mainstays and Equate.
Great Value items can be found in the grocery section. Mainstays can be found in bedding, kitchen and furniture and Equate can be found in the pharmacy and health and beauty section.

Choose in-store pickup
Another way to save is through the chain's free pickup option. Walmart offers free shipping for any online order over $35.
However, if you just need one item and don’t want to pay for shipping, in-store pickup is a great no-cost option. It also allows shoppers to benefit from online deals and avoid in-store crowds.
One thing Duley says experts recommend being extra-cautious about is buying appliances at Walmart.
She says the retailer often contracts with companies that create cheaper versions of appliances. However, it leaves consumers with a potentially inferior product costing only slightly less than quality brands.
