Weekly Groceries 8/4/09
I’m backJ I have decided that my week was a bit crazy last week without my ads. I didn’t realize that this Wed morning ritual has become a routine in my family and without it the dominos don’t fall right. I also realized that I have helped more families save money or gain confidence in their shopping abilities than I had realized.
Another realization last week was that I save MUCH more money shopping at Super Saver than I do at Walmart. You might not think this is true…but it is. Super Saver often price matches Russ’s and Hyvee’s ads automatically on the shelves (no ad needed) and marks them down 1-2 cents cheaper than the actual ad. Note: If you stay on course to only buy the sale items…then you save money. If you steer off the sale ad course, then you might not be saving much money.
Also for you price matchers at Walmart…you (or shall I say I) get sucked into the other areas of the store that Super Saver doesn’t have. Shopping at Super Saver allows me to keep the “eye on the prize.”
Have a great week and I am very happy to be doing the sale ads for myself this week and hope it brings some “calm” to your week as well!
Reminder: the Zion church (and many other organizations) save Box Tops, Best Choice, and other bar codes for reimbursement. It is easy to save.
There is also a greater need at the People’s City Mission as well…so if you have a stockpile too high, think of othersJ

Menards has great back to school prices for rebates and kids gifts. I got .99 (with 5.00 MIR) backpacks for our backpack program at school, cool marker set of 4 FREE (w/2.50 MIR) for birthday gifts.
