In an effort to save money on groceries, I’ll check out reduced-for-quick-sale items at Dillons quite a bit. I’ve gotten some great deals on lunchmeat, ground beef, produce, and other things. It’s kind of fun to see what they’ll have. On Saturday I went to Dillons because I was in the area, with the intention of only buying a couple of things. When I walked by the dairy section, they had a refrigerated case in the middle with Lender’s bagels. I paused to take a look and did a double take when I saw the price…$0.25 per package!! The sell-by date was coming up and they wanted to get rid of them. We love bagels but I don’t buy them very often so I stocked up and got 7 packages for $1.75 plus tax! Right next to the bagels was Sargento sliced Colby jack cheese, reduced fat. These things usually run $3 or more and they had them out for $0.99!! I don’t know how many packages I bought of the cheese because I just grabbed. I was so excited! The cheapest I’ve found for sliced cheese is at Aldi for just under $3 (it may be more now since I haven’t bought that in awhile). The next things I found were store-brand hamburger buns for $0.49 per package. It was fun! And now we’re stocked up for awhile. I’m thankful I have a freezer to put all this stuff in. And my freezer is definitely getting full. A couple of weeks ago, I went to the new Hy-Vee store here in town for the first time. They had a crazy sale that day. I got shredded cheese (8 oz.) for $1.25 per package, Hy-Vee frozen pizzas for $1.43 each, hot dogs for $0.50 a package, I think (healthy stuff, huh?), and a few other things. It was great!
I will probably post some other deals I find if I get to the store this week. I never used to think grocery shopping could be this fun!
