Happy Ad Wednesday!

It’s Valentine’s week, so to get your usual shopping done you’ll be wading through a lot of flowers and hearts.  Good luck and stay strong, you need milk, bread, and some salad, and must not be swayed by orchids, tulips, or Whitman Samplers!

For some reason stores think everyone likes to make surf-n-turf on Valentine’s Day, and they put steaks and shellfish on sale. Here’s a short roundup of lobster sales, in case you’re like me and want to make lobster bisque. Or lobster mac and cheese. Or a lobster roll. Hm. Do you want to invite me over?  We would get along swell.

  • lobster tails:  4oz @ Randalls for $5.99
  • whole cooked lobsters: 16-20 oz @  Fiesta for $7.99
  • lobster tails: 4-5oz $5.97 each @  HEB

Sprouts has organic apples for under a buck a pound, and stone fruits are back at 98c/lb as well. It’s early for them though, so check what you’re buying.  Their cheddar cheese at $2.99/lb is also a steal.  And Fiesta’s got stock up Blue Bell pricing again, so make room in the freezer!

The online flyer for TJs is arranged for leisurely browsing, with each product getting it’s own clickable box you need to click and look at to see the price. Today, I chose to click this.  Tiny fish in a tin, in a Harissa sauce, can be yours for the low low price of $1.29. 

If you get some, please tell me what you did with them.  I’m curious. Not enough to go get some, but in a mild ‘do-you-put-them-on-Triscuits?’ kind of way.

Go forth and shop, Cheepsters! Let me know if you find any super deals I missed!
