Happy Ad Wednesday!

Limits. 

Not very long ago the only time I had to mention limits was when Fiesta had their meats on such a deep discount that they required ‘limit 2 w/$25 or more additional purchase’. I specifically avoid dealing with HEB’s Combo-Locos, or anything involving coupons because I want this to be very simple:

List of cheap stuff, buy these if you want.

If you glance down at the list this week, you’ll see I’ve got three of five stores with limits on their loss-leaders.  This is a pesky trend, and one I hope abates.  Limits make it harder to do what I suggest, which is walk in to a store, buy the thing on sale and walk out–which is of course what they’re trying to stop.  If it continues to expand I’ll have to address it somehow. It’s one thing to go buy two pork shoulders at Fiesta and also get milk, tortillas, produce (stuff I would need for the week anyway) and call it good, it’s another to work with having to buy five (Randalls new favorite thing).

On to the sales!

If you want to make tamales, Fiesta has you covered this week with pork and masa both rock-bottom cheap. Avocados are just a buck a few places.  HEB has blackberries and seedless cucumbers for $1. Citrus is still on sale, but watch out on mandarins–they are not at their best prices this week.

Last, Fiesta has their chicken leg quarters at 28c/lb. This is very, very cheap. You have to be ready to cope with this bag of chicken though, as you can’t just toss it in the freezer–you’ll want to portion it out and vacuum seal it, or at least bag/wrap it well in single meal portions.  They also tend to have some backbone section incorporated, which is great to cut off and make stock out of, but if you’re not that sort of person you’re paying for weight you won’t use.  So use your best judgment once you get a look at what you’re buying. Throwing away a 10lb ice cube of chicken leg quarters next time you defrost the freezer is not what Cheepie likes to see!
