I am impressed with the sugar for $1.80 and I wish I was there for the Crab at $10.00.  Sounds like Crab cakes and a batch of brownies.

Our local grocery store often has the 10 for $10 offer and it needs no coupons and you also don't necessarily need to buy a full 10 items.  This has come in handy when it is something that is on the list, otherwise I won't "bite" and buy them just because they're on sale.

Yesterday I stopped at the store on my way home because it was the last day for the 49 cent mangoes.  Thank goodness they weren't from South America because I would've left them there.  The ones from Peru were just so nasty(rotting from the seed out) that I had to throw them away.

Vidalia Onions are 49 cents a pound at Harris Teeter. Indian River OJ  is 3.00 a carton I used coupons. Butterball Turkey regular 8.99 is 6.99 I had a 3.00 off coupon. This is a few of the items  that I purchased Thursday. My total was over 65.00 plus tax however using coupons I spent 18.00 plus tax total.

My Kroger store had a loaf of cracked wheat bread marked down to 49¢.  It wasn't old but looked like the heel end had been dropped as it was a bit misshapen.  Didn't bother me any.  I just got some coupons sent by my Kroger store which included 2 free items.  One was peanut butter and one for frozen fruit up to 16 oz.  I usually get wild blueberries that cost about $5.  I like the deals where if you buy 5 iems (choices listed) you get 50¢ kor $1 off each item, in addition to them being on sale.  Then if you have a coupon for any of those items, so much the better.

Bargains are getting more difficult to find.

Bargains are there you just have to look a bit harder. 
Look in the individual departments for some mark down areas.  Particularly the produce area.  Look for "manager's special" tags or other indication that an item is reduced.  I find tags on dairy and meat items. For meat items you have to be sure that you will use, freeze or cook and freeze very soon after purchase.  And don't "lollygag" on the way home as it is best to keep the items as cold as possible.

Also a bargain is not a bargain if you have to purchase so much that you can not use it all before it has to be discarded, if it is not a brand or product you will use.  Because you have a coupon or an item is "on sale" if it is not an item you like or will use there is no savings in the purchase. Chicken breasts on sale may not be a bargain if you can buy a whole chicken and have more product for more recipes as well as a great soup base for much less than the price of chicken breasts.  On the other hand the chicken breasts may be a better deal if you will never use the back, legs, thighs and wings.
