Happy Ad Wednesday

Sure, by the time you read this it’ll be Thursday, but I started it on Wednesday and we’re all just going to agree to let me have this win, okay? I’m easing back into things. It’s a process. If pretending I hit ‘Publish’ on Wednesday makes me feel better I’m going to roll with it. I had to drive practically the entire length of Lamar during rush hour and there were a lot of people who I will call ‘lackadaisical drivers’ because all my other words for it are all really bad ones.

So let’s get to the important stuff, and for the love of god will you all promise to use blinkers and not travel in the turn lane? Thank you.  Shop on, Cheepsters!

Randalls

 You’re not going to believe this, but they’re upping their ‘effing Randalls’ quotient more than usual.  That is an actual tag that I use. Stuff like that is why people keep asking about my SEO, I think.  Back to effing Randalls:

Happy Ad Thursday!

This will be short and sweet because Cheepie’s got a date!  I’m going downtown to meet up with a ton of other food bloggers at the BlogHerFood conference.  I feel somewhat like an interloper, since I focus on groceries (after that Family Dinner experimental phase) and everyone else is cooking/eating out/being famous on twitter, but I blog about food so off I go!  

Randalls has mangled their ad so much that I didn’t even try to decipher much past the meat loss-leaders. Betweeen the FAB5!, limits, minimums and $5 FRIDAY!!!, it’s pretty much as chaotic as a weekly grocery sale can be.  Sure, something you want is likely on sale, but you might have to buy only between 2-4 of them, possibly only on Friday. This is why my blog has a tag for ‘effing Randalls’.

This week’s highlights: pork loin, asparagus, apples both organic and not.

NOTE: The chicken on sale at HEB this week is Hill Country Fare brand. I’m pretty sure these are the ‘enhanced with solution’ kind. If this matters to you, make sure to read the label!
