We have no ads yet because of the holiday. I am seeing a coupon flyer f om QFC, wondering if Winco has taken some of their market. It is for dollars off a minimum order for several weeks out.
On another note, big lots has a twenty percent off everything Saturday for people with rewards cards, and Sunday for everybody,
My post before this was an experiment because I know there are people that are left in a position that they have a limited amount of money and no food on the house. It was supposed to be a stop gap to get someone through a short period of time, Basically, keep tummies happy until regular money came in.
My daughter and I went to the dollar tree and grocery outlet is weekend, I got a lot if necessities-- I came with a list. I found feta cheese fir 1.20 a pound, you can freeze feta and use it in cooking, I saw a recipe for a Greek pizza that sounded very interesting, I also found fruit snacks for my granddaughters treat boxes for Valentine's Day for her class. They aren't what I thought they were, but they will work and the mothers should be happier with those than candy. I thought they were the kind that was more like candy with fruit juice added. These are dried raisins, craisens, and mango. My granddaughter loved them and her class is four to six yo, so there shouldn't be a choking hazard.
One nnte, I think is most interesting, I needed facial tissues. Going down the isle at dollar tree, it started with boxes of 85, then 120, finally 200. Everything is a buck, so who would buy 85 when they can get 200? They had a southern cooking comfort foods cookbook at the dollar store, They have chocolate striped shortbread cookies at the dollar tree.
Grocery outlet is the best place for sliced cheeses. Tortillas are better at the dollar tree. Salsa was the same price per ounce and cheaper for the same brand as the regular chains. They had hard salami ends and pieces for a good price at grocery outlet. Most of the time, Foster farms chicken breasts are cheaper.
