Grocery Geek Presents: Cereal Galore


After all my whining about empty pantry shelves, this week was a welcome relief to the grocery geek in me. The FishKids and I made a few trips to Walgreens to take advantage of their Kelloggs sales. I bought 12 boxes of cereal for $.25/box. Then, we were able to get the rest of what’s […]

MOM Deals: Switching Sides?

I dunno, Walgreens has been wooing me bigtime lately. Two weeks in a row I’ve found fantastic deals there and tomorrow is no different. In fact, I’ve been waiting for this next week’s sale with abated breath. Time to stock up on cereal. On the other hand, CVS hasn’t been showing a whole lot of […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Back in the Saddle Again


After all my moaning and groaning about bad sales, I am pleased to report that we are back in business, people! I don’t know if it was just the timing of it all or the fact that I did some sneak peeking last week, but let me tell you good times were had by this […]

Grocery Geek Reports: Oh Happy Day

I mentioned Saturday morn how dismal sales had been lately. Waahh! Well, just when I thought my voyage in couponing was coming to a close, the tide has turned. You’d think I had won the lottery, I was so excited. What a geek I am! I did a little sneak peeking over at Hot Coupon […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Everything’s Relative


Everything is relative when it comes to economics. For instance, when gasoline has been up to $4.16/gallon here on the Kansas side, FishPapa’s recent sighting of $3.86 in Missouri sounded cheap! (C’mon people, it was two bucks two years ago! Hello!) The grocery store sales have been so bad lately, it makes CVS’ mediocre deals […]

Grocery Geek Reporting: Slim Pickin’s


The grocery sales were abysmal this week. Good thing I have a freezer full of food! Since I made use of great sales for my OAMC bash, the pressure is off this week to be super frugal. But, that didn’t stop me. No sir. I love that adrenaline rush from nabbing a great bargain. First […]

My CVS trips have been few and far between lately. With the dearth of July “freebie” items and the scarcity of bonus CVS coupons, the deals just haven’t been calling my name. I appreciated CVS’ sending me a $4/20 coupon on the Fourth. That was very nice. And I am happy to see that they’ve […]

Grocery Geek Presents: Some Goals

Woman Pushing Shopping Cart ca. 2002

Since I’ve done my huge mess of cooking this week, my grocery shopping over the next few weeks will be limited to breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and the occasional “screaming deal” for stockpiling. I thought it might be good for me to make some goals for the rest of our meals, since now I won’t be […]
