Happy Ad Wednesday!

I’d expected to have more corned beef, potatoes and ham deals to report.  The cheapest corned beef is at Randalls, of all things, at $2.99/lb, cabbage is 20c/lb at Sprouts, and Wheatsvile’s got organic potatoes for under a buck a pound. If you’ve got a traditional dinner plan for St. Patrick’s Day that’s the cheap way to get it done with low pesticides–cabbage is a C15 and potatoes are a DD. If you’re not worried about that, HEB and Fiesta both have low prices for conventional potatoes. 

It is a bit early for ham, but it’ll start popping up in ads next week, so start thinking where you might stow one in the freezer if it’s a family favorite.

This is a slow ad week, and I’m not going to be stocking up on much.  The organic apples and the pork butt at HEB are on my list, as are the organic potatoes. I’ll also be picking up the organic celery, because that’s a price as low as conventional.

Avocado Math is back! CM: extra large 97c.  HEB: large $1.50. Sprouts: no adjective, 88c.   Randalls: no adjective, $1.50.  Fiesta, no adjective, 88c.  This week I’m going to get out the scale and decide what the differences in sizes are, so I’ll know what the absolute best prices are.

This week it’s pretty clear that CM will win with a low price for the extra-large, but I’d like to sort out what the different sizes are, so that next time things are closer I can sort it out. 

Also, a nice bowl of guacamole seems like a fitting reward for this very busy week.

Let me know what deals you find while you’re out there in the aisles, Cheepsters!
