Saturday Sales Day!

I have a Saturday Ritual.....

After housecleaning and laundry...somewhere about noon, I sit down with the sales matchups and make my shopping lists.  Since I believe in stockpiling, I can be selective and only buy items that are a good price.

For Food Lion I use Southern Savers.  They have an awesome program that makes the grocery list for you to print at the end.  However, my printer is a little expensive when it comes to ink so I use those little note pads that folks are always advertising their services on and I just write them down.  Then I make a pocket out of the list and another sheet for my Qs.

My Food Lion List is
  • Land O Lakes  (Stick butter if it is included in the sale) I have $1 off 2 spread
  • Tostitos BOGO because they are multigrain and a favorite of mine...I will look for a tearoff pad that has a Q or free salsa. Might get them even if I don't see that tearpad!
  • Idahoan Instant Mashed Potatoes because I have a Q that printed out last time I shopped and it is for $2 makes them .99 to try and there are 14 cups of mash potato potential!
  • Yeast .75 off Red Star and .40 off Fleischmanns...just because we are almost out.  Should be just a few cents in the end.
  • Blue Bunny Ice Cream...printed the Internet Coupon from Southern Savers as she noted and I will be looking for vanilla for just .88!   Root Beer Floats?  I hear that there are shortages on the various flavors though.
  • Land O Frost- Lunch Meats-  I am intrigued by one of the last posts on Southern Savers which mentions getting the Bistro Variety for free when the Q is applied.

So head over to Southern Savers if you want to see what I mean!  You hardly need any coupons in hand to do these deal I mentioned...she has many of them printable from the Internet!

My Family Dollar List

I posted earlier in the week the deals here.  Here is what I will look for:
  • All Allergy Free detergent for $2 with Q
  • Two Snuggle-Liquid or dryer sheet-$1.75 each
  • Speed Stick with Q for .50
  • Mr. Clean liquid and magic eraser- I will check the pricing and have my Qs just in case
  • Hershey Candy Bars- BOGO by the box it makes them .29 each with no Q
PEEBLEs Department Store   update  a 25%Q
I found an extra 20% coupon-two actually- in the newspaper Thursday and thought I would swing by while I am out.  They expire this weekend and good for one item.

Funny thing is I just googled Peebles 2/19 and found a printable 25% off good for one item.  Turns out I could print one a day for use till 3/2/2010  Here it is and now that I have a good deal, I will still take the others and pass on those other Qs to patrons I see while shopping. 

Poor folks need to be following my blog....

Do your homework, have a paper list, and your shopping experience will be better and less taxing than fumbling with Qs in the store!
