Super Saving Saturday

I really didn’t do any shopping today. My husband picked up our Zaycon chicken this morning and I spent about an hour and half processing our chicken. I will do a post about it soon. But I did do my big shopping trip to Winco on friday along with stopping at Safeway.

How did you do on your shopping this week?

    1. I usually do my grocery shopping in two trips a week usually on Mondays and Saturdays. Then I make one big shopping trip to Winco every 4-5 weeks. I only shop Walgreens and Rite Aid when they have a good deal I want to get. How often do you shop, once a week?

  1. Unfortunately the stores in our town have three different days of sale ads…I try to pick the best two and go but often do not go for two weeks. Depends on the deals. It took two different trips to buy 6/96c ears of fresh corn (limit 12 ears) , slicing tomatoes 33c lb and a pork tenderloin for $5. Worth my time considering both stores are less than a mile away. I had lettuce from the week earlier that I purchased for 33c head and cabbage for 33c lb from the week before. Otherwise I would have stayed home but I picked up a prescription on my way home on one of the days and we put more gas in the SUV on the other. Worth my time considering both stores are less than a mile away.

    1. Our town is the same, some sales start on Sunday and some on Tuesday. I end up going to Fred Meyer on Monday for sales items only, and Everyday Deals on Monday for the produce and other great priced items we need for the week. Then on Friday or Saturday, I go to Safeway for their deals and sometimes to Grocery Outlet if we are low on an item I purchase there. I do shop very occasionally on Sunday at Albertsons for there deals right after church (it is just down the street from our church) and Walgreens and Rite Aid before church. But I am so stocked up on most items from Rite Aid and Walgreens I don’t go there very often anymore.
      It is great you can go shopping just one every two weeks. I have done the two week shopping is the past, but recently since we have started eating more fresh fruits and veggies I end up going more often. Our stores are very close to us too. Two of the store I could walk to but if I find a great deal I don’t know if I could carry it all home. 🙂

    1. I split a 40lb box with a friend of mine so I got 20 pounds of chicken. I am not sure if Zaycon Foods is in your area. I know they have added many states just this year, so maybe soon.
