Some weeks there are absolutely no bargains I want in the grocery store. No coupons fit the sales. The last week there were such good deals. I did not even need a coupon to score.
White Vinegar--gallon normally $2.38, now$2.00/gal.
I use 2 gallons each month. I only bought five gallons. This strained my storage space. But, if I could have afforded more, I would have bought more and figured out where to store.
French's Pepper--$1.99(4 oz.) is normally $4.79. It was marked down to 2.99, but on the front was a coupon for $1.
Red Delicious Apples--$0.99, regularly $1.99
I buy a few every week to have absolutely fresh ones. Even putting them out on a counter that is not cooled starts the aging process. Oh, I prefer Red Delicious.
Green grapes--$0.99, Normally $1.99 if not higher
I bought 10 lbs. of grapes. I intend to eat many and freeze many.
Cabbage--$0.35 normally higher
I only bought one head. I may go back and get more to dehydrate.
Ready for Banana Pineapple Mango Rum Jam
This is part of fifteen pounds I bought.
Tonight, I will see how many I want for dehydrating. This time of year, this is a good price.
I bought 8 huge heads for the dehydrator. I will make tuna salad and potato salad before I dehydrate since they will only be good for cooking.
Then, this week it went down to $0.68. so I got three more.
Usually, it is from $2.58 (lowest) to $3.59
One store has it for $1.49 if you buy 5 packages. I did.
Minute Maid Orange Juice--$2.49
Usually this is $3.98 to $3.58
I only drink a half gallon every two weeks. I know oranges are better, but I love orange juice with my scrambled eggs, bacon, and milk when I have it in the mornings. Two weeks ago, I found a clearance because it had two days left on "best by" date, marked down to $1.50.
At Belle Foods, they are giving 20% off their store brand. On Wednesdays, I get another 5% off since I am a senior citizen. I bought seven large canisters of their store brand of old-fashioned oats. The receipt is missing, but I figured I paid 50% of the regular price of oats.
Milk I have gotten 20% off on their store brand of milk. I have three gallons stuffed in my refrigerator with all the celery.
Of course, these are grocery store deals. The cabbage was so fresh. I know the grapes come from CA and the Vidalia onions from Georgia. However, they are fresh. Remember,only onions from certain counties in GA can be Vidalia.
Have you found, as I have, that their are many sales the past 10 days? I know none of this is from a farm stand, but I cannot walk to even shop at 20 booths. Besides, some of these foods are not available at outdoor farmers markets. What have been your best food sales or buys lately?
