i don't buy much produce because i live alone and i've found that the frozen vegs are much better than they've ever been even store brands and as a sr they discount 10% off all store brands even when it's on sale -------and due to hand limits-----it's already chopped like i need it
i bought campbells cream soups for 45cents just before christmas and i have 22 cases of cream of chicken-that i use a lot
i discovered the hormel seasoned pork roasts in the clearance case one day ---1 1/2 lb and they are really good but i would never bought one at 8.99 to try------but when i found them they were only 2.99 at the end of their date----------only a few days-----i bought a couple-----took one home and cooked it and  immediately went back to the store and bought every one that was marked down and froze them----------i cooked the last one on the first------------but yesterday when i went by the clearance case they had them for 4.99 and i bought 3 more i'll keep checking to see if they reduce them further
also i had been wanting to pick up a few of those rubbermaid glass bowls for storage and microwave use and they actually had them BOGO
our local stores all quit doubling coupons last year

If you use your own bags at Target or Lowes you receive 5 cents off your order for each bag you use.

Bought a 5# box of Clementines (easy peel Sips from Spain) marked down to $ 2.00, as soon as I got home I took them out of the case looking for the bad ones, I was surprised, all were in great shape. I could not find an exp. date on them so I do not know why they were marked down.  I peeled 1 & it was so sweet & juicy that I ended up having another.

Nellie, I get those roasts when they are on sale.  Sometimes there's a dollar coupon for them also.  They keep way past their "death" date on the package because they are sealed air tight.  It says use or freeze before a certain date. I got a couple, used one  and was planning to use the other before the death date so didn't freeze it.  i forgot about it until a month past the date and it was fine.  As long as it is sealed so no air gets in who knows how long it would keep.

I went to the Natural Grocers this morning and am amazed at the price of their "bulk" grains.  They call them bulk, but they are packaged in sealed cellophane-like bags with a label on them.  I use TVP sometimes in chili (it chews like meat) and last time I got it in the grocery bulk section it was $3.49 a pound.  Got some this morning at the Natural Grocery for $1.28 a pound.  Also got thick cut old fashioned rolled oats for $1.05 a pound and lentils for $1.03 a pound.  I love that store.

Went shopping late Thr. evening after hearing the rain would turn to sleet then snow.  I usually stick to my list, but I do look for unadvertised bargains.  I walked by a small display of Keebler Graham crumbs with a large sign that had $  .50 ( the boxes were marked $ 2.19) so I picked one up & went to the price scan to see what the price was & I passed another side display that had Comstock  Cherry Pie Filling with a large sign $ 1.00, so I took a can to check the price.  They both scanned at the price on the signs. I bought 4 of the crumbs ($ 8.76 reg. & I paid $ 2.00)exp. date Aug. 2012 & bought 12 cans of the pie filling because the exp. date is July 15, 2014 (reg. price was $ 2.79 a can=$ 33.48, I paid $ 12.00)  So I feel good getting $ 42.24 worth of unplanned items & paying $ 14.00, a saving of $ 28.24.
