Super Savings Saturday


I haven't participated in this in a LONG time. But since I actually have a picture, I thought I'd post. My best deal over this last week (besides free diapers from L., thank you so much!), is probably 2 containers of .99 strawberries. Strawberries were on sale at Kroger 1.99 for 1 lb container. Not the greatest deal* (but the best advertised this week). However, when I went in there were several containers marked down to $.99. Yeah! I was planning to make strawberry shortcake but the kids and I devoured almost one whole container yesterday and will probably eat more today so we'll have to hold off on the strawberry shortcake. Lesson for you - keep your eyes peeled for those "manager's special" stickers at Kroger!! :)

Next best deal this week, at Meijer I was "trolling"** for coupons from the U-scan checkouts and found one that was badly mangled, $5 off $25 purchase. I just gave it to the friendly cashier and she took care of it for me - yeah!!

Feel like sharing or being inspired? Visit Super Savings Saturday at Money Saving Mom.

*When I went to Meijer their strawberries were $1.50 (but I paid less ha ha na na boo boo!). I like the lower prices at Meijer but their strawberries can be iffy sometimes. Usually their strawberries have to be eaten that day or the next, however the strawberries I previously bought at Kroger were much fresher and seemed to last longer.

**trolling (not sure if I made this up or read it elsewhere) - looking for coupons others have left, usually people will just lay them down on a shelf but sometimes the coupons are left intentionally at the self-checkout (no cashier to force them into your hand). I've also been known to dig through the trash can at Kroger (shh - don't tell anyone!). :)

I leave coupons sometimes on the shelf, but I would never leave a good one like that!

I never thought to look at the self checkouts for coupons. :) I sometimes leave some behind even if the cashier shoved them into my hand. :)

Good job finding the strawberries!

I didn't do any shopping yet this week. Planning on getting some sale items today before the sale is done.

Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for the tip on Cow Appreciation Day! I have heard of it but thought you had to go overboard on the costume to participate. You proved that you don't!

Oh, and I too have been seen looking in the garbage can by self checkout - and checking carts in the parking lot - and picking coupons up off the floor (once for a free bouquet of flowers) - I'm a coupon scavenger too!
