Happy Ad Tuesday!

It’s our big day here at Cheepie, and what’s amazing is that the mailman brought the mail before 7pm, and the flyers were included. This hasn’t happened in months. I’ll assume the universe feels I’m a force for good.

There are a few things I want to define going forward, for simplicity’s sake.  From now on “Fiesta limit” will mean you can only buy two packages at that price with a $10 additional purchase requirement, and all others will be at the price I state.I think it makes sense to abbreviate this, and I’ll put it on a page of ‘Things to Know about Cheepie’ as soon as we’ve got more than this one thing.

I’ll also assume you’ve got a Randalls card if you’re going to head over there.  If you’ve got a card aversion, but want the card prices, I’m happy to give you my phone number to key in to get the discount–I get gas points and we bamboozle the Grocery Big Brother!  Generally, I do NOT find Randalls the cheapest on much.  But to get the deals you do need a card. They also have a program called ‘Just for U’ which has you go click on deals you want, and you get them in the store. About once a month they have a ‘free’ item, and I’ve gotten free laundry detergent and other things this way.

Randalls and Sprouts have apples this week at 99c/lb, but HEB wins at 77c/lb.

Apple Wars this week, Winner: HEB.


limes     15/$1

yellow onions     39c/lb

pork shoulder roast       $1.69/lb  (Fiesta limit. $2.89/lb)

chicken breast quarters  99c/lb  (Fiesta limit. $1.99/lb)

large Halloween pumpkins     $3.99/ea


tomatoes on the vine    99c/lb

pork shoulder roast or country style ribs     $1.99/lb

BelVita Breakfast biscuits or Keebler Sandwich crackers  $1.67/ea

Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce, 23.5-24oz      $1/ ea


granny smith, red/golden delicious apples    77c/lb

Texas grapefruit    5/$1

raspberries, 6oz.   $1.25/ea

County Post drumsticks    $1/lb


beginning this week:

asparagus     $1.49’lb

pineapples       49c/lb

tomatoes on the vine    99c/lb

russet potatoes  33c/lb

carving pumpkins     $3/ea  (only Fri-Sun)

pork or chicken sausage  $2.99/lb (only Fri-Sun)

ending this week:

honeycrisp apples  $1.49/lb

black seedless grapes  99c/lb

green cabbage  33c/lb

yellow onions  3lbs/$1

Stonyfeld Organic Yogurt, 32oz.   2/$5

lamb shoulder chops, grass fed   $2.99lb

Rosie Organic whole chicken    $2.99/lb

bulk raisins    $1.99/lb

vanilla macaroon granola      $1.99/lb


bone-in rib eye, or cowboy steaks     $9.99/lb

I know, it’s odd that I’ve got Central Market up there. It’s because that’s their best price for those steaks, and  those steaks are good. They will freeze well with a vacuum sealer, and you can save them for when your parents come to dinner, or an anniversary, or a football Saturday where a grilled hunk of meat is the only way to assuage the pain of a loss. You could also just eat them tomorrow, because they’re tasty.

Fiesta has potatoes at 39c/lb, but that’s not the winner so I’m not listing it. It’s six cents, but I feel like the main list needs to be the lowest prices on that for the week. So I’m sticking to it. If you think there’s a more useful way to deal, let me know.

This week I’ll be getting limes, pork shoulder, apples and grapefruit. What do you think you’ll buy?

Cheep cheep!
