Happy Ad Wednesday!

Memorial Day–Holiday of meat, at least in Grocery Land.  Growing up, Memorial Day always meant a parade through the neighborhood, and a walk to the ball field where there was a service, and then we all trooped over to the firehouse and ate hot dogs and went for rides on the fire truck.  

In Grocery Land, it’s weekend-o-grilling, and all the chains have several meats on deep discounts.   Because meat sales this week are all over the place. I’m including a couple of things this week that I wouldn’t normally (tri-tip, pork tenderloin, T-bones) because they’re exceptionally good deals, and we all like to splurge sometimes if we can.

Watermelons are under $4 at three places, and both HEB and Randalls have 6/$1 corn. Buy blueberries at Randalls this week –HEB is nearly 2x that, Fiesta is nearly 3x.  Fiesta has sacks of Key limes for 97c, which is enough for two pies (pick up some meat while you’re there–they have a wide variety on sale).

And finally, Randalls fixed the broken cheese ad–this week it’s at $5.99/20oz.  So hopefully some of you managed to stock up for a week of grilled cheese sandwiches at $2.50!
