So the baby is coming any time now. It happens to coincide beautifully with this week's case lot sales! I spent all of yesterday's energy hopping from store to store, getting the house fully stocked and ready!

There was a shopping cart full of Pillow Pets, normally $19.99-25.99 each. They were on clearance for just $3.99 each! Talk about a great opportunity to add to my gift box! So many cousins, neighbors and friends with birthdays. Take advantage of these deals whenever you can!
Finally, the Dollar Store:
I went there looking for peanuts and peanut butter. They didn't have it but I did find some other great deals.
Peanuts still in their shells, raisins, pistachios, pretzels, sunflower seeds, all $1 each.
At the front of the store, there was a lovely shopping cart full of goodies, all just .50 each! I kinda wish I woulda bought more, but I don't really need so much crap in the house. :)
We hit Stokes in Salem today. Last day of the week's sale.
1 doz large eggs .77
Ice cream bucket 4.99
Cool Whip .98 ea -.50/2 cool whip= .73 ea
Western Family Chocolate chips 3/$5 (They're cheaper at Buy low but I don't want to go into Provo and we were in Salem anyway.
There are some great case lot deals starting tomorrow. I'll try to get them posted tonight. :)
Forgot to include this in the last post. The fam and I ate at Olive Garden for lunch today. I took advantage of the advertised $6.95 deal which includes unlimited salad/or soup and breadsticks plus a half size serving of several delicious entrees.
The salad and breadsticks were lovely as always. My Grilled Chicken Flat bread however, was AMAZING! i was almost sad that i am such a penny pincher. It would have been nice to have a full size sandwich. I highly recommend this meal! And what a great price! Just be careful with drinks. Stick with water or pack your own drink along. (Yes, I have actually done that many times.) They kill you with the beverages. A lemonade for my son was $2.45!
I was going to be meeting some of my family for lunch at Olive Garden today and decided to hit Buy Low while I was waiting for them to arrive. Fabulous deals this week! I was sad that their oranges (.10/lb) were down to the dregs and their $1.59 Western Family Chocolate Chips were sold out (the guy said they will have more in on Saturday or you can ad match them at Walmart.)
I still did well though and got some great deals.
M&M's 12.6 oz 2/$5 -$1.50/2 April All You magazine
Don Julio flour tortillas .88 ea
1 lb baby carrots .79 Butter $1.67 ea (Yes, I already have tons of it in my deep freezer but this is an AMAZING price!!! Stock up!!) Laundry Detergent $1.49 Apple Juice 2/$3 Stove Top stuffing .99 (ad-matched with Fresh Market) -.50/1 Stove Top= .49
This evening we hit Shopko. I needed to refill prescriptions and knew that I was due for my -$10/$20 loyalty coupon.
Shopko has Diet Coke, Coke, and Sprite for .88 each, if you can find a store that has them in stock. :(
Spanish Fork did not, so I opted for Pepsi products. The diet Pepsi's were $1.25 ea. The other sodas were $1.59 each. None of those are great prices, but with the coupon I had, they ended up being FREE, so it worked out just fine.
My daughter needed new church shoes, so I found these on sale for $12.99. With the shoes and the sodas minus my loyalty coupon, I paid just $10 and change for all of it. I will be hitting Stokes tomorrow as I will be in the area and will let you know what goodies I find there. I will also try to hit Walmart to ad match my chocolate chips.
