I found strawberries at Costco for $4.99 for 4 pounds. They are big and juicy and sweet. I bought a couple of containers and made some jam with them. We also ate some with sweetened condensed milk. Yum yum!! This is just in case you love strawberries!!

I know it is a bit far away, but I was in Winco last night and found some good deals on canned fruit. Dole tropical fruit was $.92/can and the pineapple is $.88/can. There are two coupons, one specifically for Dole pineapple $.55/2 cans, and the other for Dole canned fruit $.55/2 cans. They are smart source coupons, not sure what date, you can look them up on the coupon list at PYP. I also found Activia yogurt 4 packs were $1.78, use the $1/1, and Mission Tortillas were $1.39 and I used the coupon $.75/1. They also have many General Mills cereals on sale for $1.88, and $1.78. There are coupons for $1/2 boxes. I bought Cheerios and Chex. They have Frigo string cheese 12 pack for cheap (I think $2.28) and there are $.40 off coupons.

I also did a few deals at Walmart this week. We just got a Red Plum coupon for $2/1 package Stayfree. If you use it soon (before 3/31) you can combine it with the buy one Stayfree, get one free coupon that expires then. I bought Blistex chapsticks too, they are $.98 and used the $.35/1 coupon (Smart Source). Also in that latest Red Plum was a coupon for $3/1 Snuggle. I used this on the fabric softener sheets at Walmart, regularly priced at $3.48.

Happy Shopping!

Discount Lipstick

The new Fresh Market on 4700 So. and Redwood has discounted all remaining Loreal and Almay make-up to 10/$10. When I looked through it last night, there are lots of lip products, some nail polish and various foundation and powders. If your looking for a new look, it is a pretty cheap way to go! :)

Case lot sale combine forces

Is anyone interested in "combining" shopping with the case lot sales going on in the next week or so? There are definitely some items I want to get at the lower prices, but I don't necessarily need a whole case (there are only 3 of us after all :) ) so if anyone is interested in "combining" shopping with me let me know ASAP!

Wesson Oil

Sisters, the sale at Albertson's this week has a 5 star deal on Wesson Oil in the 48 oz. size. The way the sale works is to buy $25 of products and receive a $10 voucher off your next order after you pay for your transaction. If you were to buy just oil, the final price on it would be $1.50 each. Check expiration dates on the bottles, but unopened oil will generally store in a cool dark place for a year. There are other items on the sale you can use to make up your $25. You don't have to just buy oil. See your ad, or call if you have questions.

I think the easiest way to realize your savings on a sale like this is to pay for your $25 of items, get your $10 voucher (catalina) and do a second transaction, using your catalina on the rest of your groceries that day. That way yours savings are sure, and don't go missing in your purse somewhere. Happy shopping.

Valassis pulling newspaper coupons!!!

Aaaack!! Here's a link to what's being said about this on PYP.

If you don't have time to read through it all, the gist of it is that Valassis is pullling the RedPlum inserts out of the paper in certain markets, with Utah being one of those. Supposedly you can sign up to receive the inserts by mail, but there is some question as to whether the inserts are the same. Regardless, no more stocking up on papers when the coupons are great.

PYP is asking everyone to contact Valassis and the newspapers to see if we can get them to change their minds. Here's a link to PYP's "Don't cut my coupons!" page with sample letters, etc.
