I totally wasn’t going to post this, because it’s not like it’s a super savings post or anything, but then I got to thinking about my non-couponing friends. Obviously I used to shop like them. I think of all of the grocery store inserts I completely ignored, especially in the days of no paychecks when my husband was first growing his business, and it makes me cringe to think about how much money I wasted just by not paying attention!!
So, this is for all my non-couponing friends. Nothing freakish here:
Safeway is having one day sales this week. Today it was frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.49/lb, or $5.96 a bag. This is definitely a stock-up-for-the-next-two-months price. I already had two bags in the freezer, so I stuck with 4 bags today.
Fresh Express bagged salad and spinach is $1 this week. Use the .50/1 MC from 4/3 SS, plus the doubler (-.50 in Oregon and SW Washington) to get it for FREE! I’m definitely going back for more at the end of the week. We almost finished off a bag at dinner tonight and Grant has asked me to put it in his lunch!! Weird kid.
Bread – $1.69 (not stock-up!)
Milk – $2.49
Pinto Beans are 99¢/lb! Walmart is usually this price, but they increased prices the last couple of months, so I haven’t been buying. Argh. SO, I’m happy to see dried beans at a more reasonable price. I bet I could get them for cheaper at Winco, but I don’t want to drive all that way just for beans. I’m happy paying 99¢.
Del Monte canned veggies are 59¢ each. NOT a great price, by the way. I prefer to get my canned and frozen veggies for free. However, I’ve been participating the Coupon Connections’ Thoughtful Thursday email campaign, and Del Monte sent me three 50¢/1 coupons! SO, they were burning a hole in my pocket and I decided to use them today. With a doubler, I was able to get 4 cans for 9¢ each.
Carrots are $1.
In other news – I’ve also been stocking my birthday present closet with cheap board games. It’s been fun!
AND, my boys are participating in Scholastic’s free book promotion. Of course, I just found out that it is one offer per household, so we’ll have to sort that out.
They are just so CUTE!!
Later this week:
Big bag of oranges for cheap tomorrow. I think it is an 8lb bag for $2.49.
Grapes are 99¢/lb on Friday and Tillamook Cheese is $5 (not a great price, but better than . . . a higher price?). Aaaand . . . that’s all I saw.
What am I missing?
