Last week I scored big with my green sticker friends, plus a good weekly special on peppers. For $0.99 each I got:
- 4 packs of fresh button mushrooms
- 2 packages of fresh portabello mushrooms
- 3 packages of salad lettuce (three types of lettuce)
- 2 packs of grapefruit (4 to a pack)
The best deal was getting eight grapefruit for $1.98 because the previous week they were on "special" for $0.98 EACH! By holding out for a week I was able to get FOUR for one penny more! WHOO HOO!! We've never had a problem eating all the produce before it goes bad (it keeps a lot longer than you might think), and it always tastes just fine. In addition to the green stickered items, I also got eight bell peppers (2 orange, 2 yellow, 1 red, and 3 green) for $0.88 each (a savings of $2/pepper!). Finding deals like this helps to ease the "pain" of not having as many coupons to use...and losing weight while doing it is like a little bonus! :-)

Good for you for finding the manager specials in your store. They all do it different times so it takes some investigating.ReplyDelete
I found this out at Save-A-Lot and ShopRite.
Where do you shop?
Thanks Niki! You were certainly one of the people who encouraged me! I shop at Ingle's - a semi-local store (based in Asheville, NC). They have pretty good prices and the managers there are good about giving me deals and letting me use my coupons.ReplyDelete
