    Default The grocery sales are seriously lacking....

    I was putting my list together for 2 local stores of the deals I plan to pick up. This is my entire list:

    * peaches .88 per pound
    * 2# cheddare $3.99 (limit 2)
    * watermelon $3.88 (not sure of the size, I am guessing small-ish)
    * cantaloupe .33 per pound

    Where are the deals?!?!?!

    Brennasmom, have you found out about zaycon foods yet? It it big batches of food, but it is easy to repackage into portions that work for your family.

    Yes, love Zaycon. They haven't had much lately in my area. I bought peaches from them last year and am hoping they will have the same this year!

    I'm not going to make it to the sale in the next town. Our little store is having a Fri/Sat sale and I am going to get turkey breast for 1.39 a pound. Gonna get a couple for the freezer and check out the Dollar General to see what deals they might have.

    Saturday is coupon day at Dollar General. Spend $25 - get $5 off. If you get as close to the $25 as you can - it makes everything you buy 20% off...

    I usually go to the produce store; but lately the produce has been very reasonable at the grocery store so I've been shopping there and approx 5 items are on sale at Aldis each week. I got a huge honeyrock (another name; but cannot remember the name) for $1.39; cherries have been under $2. a # at all the grocery stores; nectarines and peaches .99 @ Meijer. Cucumbers 3/,99 @ meijer and I have soo many tomatoes in my pot on the patio haven't needed to buy them. Most of the meats that are not beef are on sale too and a more reasonable price.

    We haven't had tons of good deals, but they're still around. Hunt's spaghetti sauce 8/$10 was a recent one... This week canned goods are 5/$3, 100% whole wheat bread is $2/loaf, $1.66 for 16 oz sour cream, organic cantaloupe 98c/lb. Milk is regularly 3.39/gal here. (Keep in mind, these are Alaska prices).

    Same here - loss leaders are mostly for processed stuff that we don't buy. We end up doing most our shopping at Aldis right now.
