Apologies For My Sporadic Posting!

It's been a busy week in our house! We welcomed a new member into our family last Sunday - a new doggie Layla! She is a sweetheart but has definitely thrown my routine for a loop =) Along with that, we had Boo's birthday yesterday, my Hubby's graduation with his MBA today, and Boo's birthday party tomorrow. So my steals and deals hunting has fallen by the wayside a bit this week. But not to worry, I will be back in the swing of things!

Discount Grocery Stores!


I made a challenge for myself last week that I wouldn't do another big grocery trip for the rest of the month. I really want to work with what's in our freezer and pantry, and of course save money! In order to do this I did need to go out yesterday to stock up on some of the staples like bread, milk, eggs, and butter. I scoped out sales ads at our local grocery stores and didn't see any spectacular sales on the items I needed, so I figured I would try our local discount grocery store, Price Rite.

Verdict: I can't believe it has taken me so long to make my way over there! I was able to get everything I needed for a fraction of what I would have paid at stores such as Giant or Genuardi's. Here are a few prices that I happened to jot down:

  • Bread - $.79
  • Thin Pretzels - $1.19
  • Apple Juice - $1.29
  • Orange Juice - $1.99
  • Luigi Water Ice - $.99
  • Extra Large Eggs - $.99
  • Ketchup - $1.15
  • Butter $.75
  • Bounty Paper Towels, 8 pack - $5.99

There are a few differences between Price Rite and a grocery store such as Acme or Giant. For one, they don't accept coupons. Their prices are low enough without them. Also, there are no weekly circulars or sales on items. Lastly, to keep their costs down, they encourage shoppers to bring their own bags. If you forget or don't have any available, they charge $.10/bag.

If you've never been to a discount grocery store, I'd recommend checking one out! To see if you have any Price Rites in your area, click here =)


$.19 Edy's Ice Cream at Target!


Another ice cream post - two in one day is a pretty good day for me! Hip2Save posted this great deal on Edy's at Target (if you haven't checked out her site, you should, she's awesome)!

Target has 6 oz. containers of Edy's Slow Churned Ice Cream on sale for $1.19. When you pair that sale with this $1 Edy's Target coupon, you can get it for only $.19! That's a pretty sweet deal!

Two Awesome CVS Deals!


Truth be told, I've been slacking on my drugstore deals lately b/c there has been way too much going on with Target and my grocery stores! But I do like to peek around every week to make sure I'm not missing anything spectacular. I'm glad I did this week or else I would have missed out on the following deals!

*If you're not familiar with CVS, Extra Care Bucks (ECB), print out after your receipt and are good for an amount off of your next purchase*

Coppertone NutraShield Sun Product - $8.99
- $5/1 printable
- $2 ECB
= $1.99

Always Infinity Pads, 28 to 36 ct. - $4.99
- $4/1 MC

*This is an unadvertised deal, so the price on the shelves will not show as $4.99. Price check the item beforehand to see if they are ringing up at the lower price*
(Thanks Hip2Save!)
