Foodtown thru 1-31-12

Hunt’s ketchup 24oz bottle $.99, fresh baby carrots 1lb bag $.69 and Colgate large tube 6.4oz $.99 (going to check if my coupons are still good for the toothpaste, if so only .50 for me)

If you want to check the Kroger ad for this coming week’s sale simply go to their website and change your location by using an ohio zip code. I use 43452, while the ad prices and items are not 100% identical it gives me a good idea of what to look for in my local ad and only with a few changes in items or prices.

Sales and Coupons

Walgreens has Blink eye drops for $8 if you use the coupons that came out earlier this month for $1 off you get back $8 in Register Rewards.

CVS has Puffs tissues on sale forr $.88 per box, use the P&G January coupons before they expire on 1-31-12 get $.25 off 3 boxes limit 6 boxes and Dawn small bottle is $.98 with same P&G flyer coupons use the $.25 off.

Food Town has 14oz bottle French’s mustard for $.88 with earlier month’s coupons for $.50 that makes this item $.38. Now that’s this a good stockpile item for the summer months. Walmart sells the same bottle for $1.08 regular.

Kroger ad with mega sale will continue into this coming full week so you have time to get your items together. Remember if you ad match at walmart no limit on items but if you just want to go to Kroger then you can only do 40 items per transaction at a time. Their registers will not roll the mega deals $5 off 10 items past 40 items so you will have to do separate transactions for more. Bonus of taking this ad to Walmart is they will be better stocked and you won’t have to stick to the 40 item or less limit.

Current Ads and Shopping

Okay folks I am way behind my plans for posting this due to a nasty stomach flu bug that became rampant throughout my household this week but here it is even if it is a little late.

The beginning of the mega sales for SuperBowl have it! Kroger has a good sale to be ad matching at walmart, as does Foodtown. Now is the time to stock up on condiments like ketchup and mustard.  It’s also time to stock up on Hunt’s tomatoes by ad matching Kroger’s ad to Walmart and Daisy sour cream, kraft singles cheese (unless like me you stocked up heavily with the last foodtown ad at the lower price) Hormel Chili is another good stocking item and there were coupons for all of these in the Sunday inserts if you’ve been hoarding and organizing them correctly.

HEB has their boneless/skinless chicken breasts on sale for $1.97 per lb and that’s a good deal and good stocking item. I have found a new wholesaler for chicken and beef and next time they have a sale I will buy some and let you all know the quality and pricing. You do need a deep freeze to use them as the chicken comes in a 40lb box (bulk) and runs $1.69 per lb so $67.60 a box but you can’t get that price anywhere.

Their ground beef is fine ground and comes 93/7 lean also in a 40lb box. I’m told it runs about $119 per case/box and runs about $2.69 per lb and again you can’t get that price tag anywhere else locally. Regionally available items so nothing shipped in from somewhere you’ve never heard of and all their items have good reviews. Company is called Zaycon Foods.

The Turkey Sales Have Hit!

For everyone wanting a good turkey for Thanksgiving…I got all my sales today early and the turkey sales have hit! If you don’t want to go near a store next week, get your shopping list in order and check off what you do need and get it bought now.

I do not go near stores Thanksgiving week except during the day and not at all after Wednesday noon. It’s everyone’s mad dash time and I hate it and personally I can’t deal with how rude people can get in the stores so it’s just nicer to know I’ve made my entire cooking/eating schedule and don’t have to go.

Kroger also will have their asparagus on sale for $1.88 per pound so I’ll be ad matching at Walmart since we’re craving the good sweet green stuff.  I also went into my arch nemisis (kroger) tonight for a last minute mega sale run and found 2 blinkie machines. I snatched all the Free milk coupons I could (get free milk when you buy 4 GM cereals) and all the $2 off charmin I could as well. Those coupons will pay for themselves. Charmin doesn’t expire until Jan 2012 and Milk expires around 12/11/11. Grab some if you get the chance.

If you go to there is a printable coupon for pork ribs. You get $2 off pork ribs when you buy ANY KC Masterpiece product.

You can print this out 2 times if you close out the screen after the first print and then go back into it again.

The coupon does not expire until 9/10/11, so if you watch the sales you should be able to get both items on sale and you can use any coupon for KC Masterpiece to get an even better deal on this.
