Grocery Deals week of Feb 18

Did you see the cover story in the paper today? It is about the "coupon queen." The paper will be running a column each Wed. from her. I am looking forward to learning for that column how to save more money on my groceries. Today the column stated how grocery sales are rotated on a 12 week schedule. I had noticed that there was a cycle to the sales of grocery items but didn't know the time frame. I will be studying the prices and making my own listing to track the items that I frequently buy so that I can stock up when they are at their lowest. I already do this to some extent but I know that if I am even more diligent in my study that I will save more and in these times - it is important to me. Here are two web links for the coupon queen.

99cents/lb chicken drumsticks, thighs or split breasts

On the back page there are some stock up sale items - but I am pretty sure that most of these prices are just as cheap at Winco.

There is also an offer to buy 10 participating items in one transaction and get a coupon for $10 off your next shopping visit. You will have to check this one out to see if the items are things you regularly use and if you think this is a deal for you. Happy shopping!
