Happy Ad Sunday

I’m just going to get to it here, since I’m so late. Believe me, I feel badly that I haven’t told you about the 69c/lb chickens at Randalls. Because that’s a smoked chicken taco party on the cheap, right there.  I was distracted. There was the whole Hundred Days thing, and I think that meant we were all gonna die? And then there was all this parenting to do.  So I got delayed.  Because I also spent a non-zero amount of time laughing at this:

18194137_10154598986163366_8888438746766104925_n

It’s funny once you’re not in charge of diapers.

Happy Ad Wednesday!

Mothers Day is for Meat, apparently. Steaks are on sale all over town. I didn’t see any great deals on prime, so choose your favorite cut and pick a store, it’s probably on sale.

HEB has their chicken fajitas (breast or thigh) for $1.97/lb, and the club pack 80% ground chuck for 2.77/lb.  These are near-permanent prices, so I’m deciding not to list them all the time.

Highlights this week: mangos, avocados, strawberries, bacon and Oak Farms ice cream.

Happy Ad Friday!

Weekend shoppers, I’m here! Have no fear!

Midweek shoppers, I totally let you down. I want to blame the opera, because that sounds super cultured and educated, but it was more I wanted to watch Blacklist and Scandal. I will try to grow up.

This will be a quick and dirty sum up of the best sales.  This weeks highlights: mangos, ground turkey, cantaloupes, grapeschicken & pork butt.

Happy Ad Wednesday!

Berries! Daffodils!  Yes, it was Summer for a couple of days last week, but we’re back to Spring, which is my favorite season. Bluebonnets, everything turning green, & BBQ meat sales–all great Spring things!

This week asparagus, sausage, strawberries and mangos are all cheap.  Ham is cheap all over because it’s Easter, which is all about Jesus and ham.  Cheap citrus is gone, but a couple stores still have sacks of grapefruit if you want more.  

Also some big news:

Happy Ad Wednesday!

Randalls is upping their ‘certain days’ game, continuing their effort to be the most complicated store to get a deal at. The card is a pain, but it’s there and I’m used to it now. The app is just plain irritating–making me use my poor old phone to get 50c off salad dressing doesn’t make me happy to be where I am!  A few months back they added limits, last week adding lower AND upper limits. Now, not only to they have Friday-only, but 3-day-only deals.  Even people like me, who live close and use them for convenience on certain products are going to wear out on this soon!

We’ve got stone fruit showing up cheap this week, with eggs, mangos and grapes making a decent showing.  In the meat department, pork and chicken are at normal lows,with nothing at a stock-the-freezer price. Asparagus is here, which means all the great spring deals are just getting started!

Note: Grapes are cheaper at Randalls. Organic apples are super cheap at Sprouts. Mangos are cheapest at Fiesta (though still cheap at HEB). Don’t buy these things elsewhere this week.

It’s Citrus Time!

There’s not a song for it, like Hammer Time, but it’s still a good thing. Fresh juice is cheap to make at home, and I can easily get everyone their daily dose of Vitamin C.  Sprouts and HEB both have great deals on citrus this week. $4.98 for fifteen pounds of grapefruit is a lot of fruit for under $5!

Hopefully you also find some things for the freezer this week. Boneless skinless chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, and pork loin are all on sale at a few different places this week, and all freeze well.

Happy Ad Wednesday!

Hopefully you’ve finished off the last of the roast beast and are ready to shop!

Lobster tails are everywhere, with HEB/CM coming in cheapest. Get your bisque on, Cheepsters! ( I feel like that’s not a saying that will catch on. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t see if you can work it into your everyday conversations).  There are also good deals  on boneless chicken, black eyed peas, and citrus.

This week’s got Randalls continuing the Fab!5 sale, where you need to buy five of certain items to get $1 off each. There are many to mix and match, the ad shows them in surprising combinations–cornbread mix and bottled water? If you want five, they’re 59c/ea!  There are also some odd choices. Do you need five French Baguettes? Even the photo they’re using to advertise couldn’t deal with five, but if you want them, they’re at Randalls.  Possibly on sale, but the ad indicates ‘Everyday Price’, as well as ‘Buy 5 save $1’ so it’s a mystery.
