After a long, not-on-purpose hiatus from “deal shopping”, I’ve finally gotten out of the house to hit some stores today. Well, one so far, but I hope to get out again this afternoon to catch some sales before the week is over…
My best tip for the day is simply this: Know what’s around you. Jeremiah and I lived in Carlisle for over a year before I ever heard of “the bent and dent store” that is near by. Then it was another few months before I ventured in to see if it was as good as it was spoken of… Why?? I don’t know!
Take today’s trip for example — Jeremiah asked me to keep my eyes open for two things: Coffee and Creamer. Unfortunately, they have never stocked creamer for as long as I have looked for it. BUT, I struck gold by looking for coffee. Not only did I find CHEAP coffee, but I found his FAVORITE coffee CHEAP! I came home with SIX bags of Seattle’s Best coffee for a total of $12.50. Pretty sure it is on sale this week at Walmart for $6.00 a bag… So that’s a savings of $23.50 right there!
Granted, you probably don’t have a “BB’S Bent, Bumps, and Bundles of Bargains” 30 minutes from your house, but what DO you have?
Another score I made recently was on chicken — Chicken, as you well know, is not as cheap as it once was… OR IS IT!? We have a store near here that often sells boneless skinless chicken for $1.78/lb when you buy 10lbs or more. Last week, it was on for $1.49! Guess who stocked up!
The next thing we are going to need, in case you haven’t figured it out, is a deep freeze… Anyone know of any good deals on those??
