Extreme Savings

Monday evening is my favorite time to shop at Vons, it is usually pretty mellow which allows me to take my time to find all of the best deals*.

*Warning; waiting until Monday for the week's deals (last day of the weekly sales ad is Tuesday) sometimes will result in certain items being out of stock.

Here are today's best deals:
Two boxes Post Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds (18oz) and two cans of Yuban coffee (11oz) for $6.67.
Retail cost of these items, $20.56, that's a savings of $13.89.

Wish Bone chunky blue cheese salad dressing; full retail price ($3.99) - card savings ($1.00) - Just4U ($2.30) = $0.69

Also scored on some meat products!
Oscar Mayer premium hot dogs (2-8packs) and one package of honey roasted turkey breast lunchmeat (9oz) for $4.97.
Regular price; $6.49/hot dog pack and $5.29 for the turkey = $18.27, a savings of $13.30 for the 3 items.

The best way to double or triple your savings is to combine Club Card deals, Just4U deals (digital coupons) including personalized deals, and paper coupons.

Another way is to check the clearance sections throughout the store (back of the store by the pharmacy, meat department, frozen foods and more.
Alwas keep your eyes open for blowout deals and discountinued items.
Here's an example of what I came across today:
This bag of frozen button, shiitake and oyster mushrooms ended up being just $0.50 with card and store savings.

Good luck shopping friends :)

Tip for Today:

Buy staple items such as, shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper, pasta, etc when they are on sale.  Don't get stuck paying full price.

I picked up these items at RALPH'S today and only paid $1.84 for all 5 items.  Between the regular club deals, digital coupons and paper coupons, I saved over $14 off the regular retail price.

For those who need to save money, doing your homework is well worth it :)

It's Tuesday!!! That means DOUBLE AD WEDNESDAY IS TOMORROW :)

For anyone that doesn't know, Wednesday is my favorite day of the week.  This is due to the fact that it is DOUBLE AD WEDNESDAY at SPROUTS.  For those that say healthy eating and living comes at a premium, I beg to differ.

Here are some examples of easy, inexpensive and healthy options for the week:

-Mountain High Yogurt (32oz container, $2.50) -1
-Granola (Sold in bulk, $2.99-3.99/#) ~1#
-Bananas ($.65-.75/#) -4
-Raisins (Sold in bulk, $1.99/#) ~1#
*Depending on amount consumed, yogurt, granola and raisins will last 1-2 weeks.  I use about a half of a banana per day.
COST: ~$8.70, even if it only lasts a week, that's only $1.25 per meal.

-Greens (Romaine, Green or Red Leaf, $.98) -2
-Avocado ($.33) -3
-Chicken ($2.49/#) -2#
-Onion (~$.50/#) -1
*To make things easier, wash and chop onion and lettuce.  Also, pre-cook chicken and chop up.  Store separately and make 'fresh' each day.  Pair with favorite dressing.  I use roughly 1/2 avocado per serving.
COST: ~$8.50, less than $1.25 per meal.

For less than $20 you can have two meals a day for the entire week.  With these kinds of savings you can buy $5 lobster tails (when on sale) and have a meal for a king at low prices.
