Happy Ad Wednesday!

Last post of the year, and I’ve just looked back to see when I first started this odd hobby. It’s been over five years. That’s amazing to me. Five years!  The downtown skyline was completely different then! There were no scooters! Was there even P. Terry’s?

During that time, I’ve posted about a few different topics aside from the roundups. There was the family dinner/meal planning scoring. There was a while where I tried to follow keeping up with shopping frugally AND organically.  For a short time, I had a weekly post about the goofiest thing at Trader Joe’s.   

For now, I seem to be able to manage the weekly round-up and not much else.  I do snap a lot of photos in grocery stores: random deals and things that strike me as funny.  I may work on posting these on Instagram, which seems to be where most food bloggers are, as my ongoing hatred of unit pricing inconsistency doesn’t need more blog posts.

Or maybe it does.  We shall see what 2020 brings. I hope it finds and keeps you well, Cheepsters!  Here’s the list:

Happy Ad Roundup Weekend!

We’ve got the weekend, so let’s get to it!  Except, well, my mail didn’t include an HEB circular, so I’m going to have to do the online one and let me tell you, it’s not my favorite site to deal with.  I get distracted and decide to check out college football or an instant pot site, and that’s how we end up with my Wednesday post on Saturday.

But I am here, typing away, and I hope it helps you.  This week doesn’t have the meat sales that I expect will show up next week for the holiday, but we’ve got Fiesta with the cheap chickens, still. 

This year I’ll be doing several homemade gifts, some cooked, some crafted.  Do you have any fun gift plans?  I’d love to hear about them! Cheepie is trying to cheep our holiday season down and I’d love to hear how you like to gift without breaking the bank.
