I love finding great deals at the grocery store. It is like a game to me. In case you can't tell I love a challenge. Today I was a the grocery store. I ran out of Pirate's Booty and I wanted to pick up some salad mix. I have not been eating veggies like I should just because they can be so expensive so decided I would get some while they are 2 for $5.00. Not a great price but less expensive then the regular price. When I got to the store I found a large package of Spring Mix with 3 $1.00 coupons on it. I got 1 lb of organic spring mix for $3.00 and it is beautiful. It looks so good I think it will probabley last me 5-7 days before it spoils. What a buy!
I always recommend going to the grocery store during the day on a week day. This is when I seem to find the most discounted items. I often find great buys on Laura's Lean hamburger. When it gets close to expiring they mark it down to about half the price for quick sale. I just bring it home, repackage it and stick it in the freezer. I love it when I find this type of deal. Last time I found the hamburger on special I bought 7 or 8 packages. I bought all that they had. Another great buy I found was whole Turkeys and Turkey Breasts at $1.29 a pound. I didn't buy one because I didn't have enough money left in my budget but if you can afford it I would suggest checking your local grocery stores for great mark downs. This is the time of year that most grocery stores mark down their turkeys because the holidays are over. I hope they still have some left next week.
If you have the time to look you can ussually find something you need at a great price. Items that expire are always marked down for quick sale a day or so before the experation date. You just have to be at the store at the right time and know where to look.
