Changing up my grocery routine lately
The produce at that store has been kinda icky and quick to spoil. Since it’s still summer and I can get decent fresh produce from this part of the country, I’ve opted to shop at a local chain for awhile.
Kuhn’s Market has a few locations around Pittsburgh.
I’ve found the prices to be cheaper than Giant Eagle and Shop ‘n Save, especially for things such as meats and produce.
Plus, they double coupons up to $0.99. I’m now clipping coupons for things like Eggo waffles and yogurt–coupons I would have skipped during my Aldi-only days.
I say all this because I want to convey that it’s important to be flexible with your grocery shopping. Take a peek at sales fliers at other stores. You may be surprised!
Rite Aid baby deals
Rite Aid has a good deal on Luv’s megas this week. They’re on sale for $9.99 but there is a $2 single check rebate. I had a $1 coupon, making them $6.99 for a pack of 86 size 1s. That’s about $0.08 per diaper, and not bad at all.
Also, Rite Aid brand wipes are on sale for about $6.49 (I don’t have my receipt in front of me so I don’t know for sure) for 240 or so. There is a $2 single check rebate for those. What I do know is these wipes were less than $0.02 each, which is the price to beat.
I’m waiting for Huggies jumbos to hopefully go on sale at Rite Aid later this month. There’s a month-long promotion going on where you buy three “snug & dry” or supreme jumbo packs, Pull-Ups, or Goodnights and you’ll get a $10 rebate. Even if you have $1 off coupons for each pack, the regular price isn’t good enough to do it just yet. Maybe soon?
You can get free Crest toothpaste there if you have a $0.75 off coupon from Sunday’s paper (free after $1.74 rebate, anyway).
Walgreens baby stuff clearance
I made a quick stop at Walgreens today to check out some of the free after rebate items for the month. I decided I didn’t need most of them, but I did buy a lip balm that I’ve been needing.
There are a bunch of baby items on clearance in my store, and it might be worth checking your store to see if the same holds true there. I picked up a Gerber manual breast pump for $9.49 (regularly like $37) but I’m probably going to take it back since it had horrible reviews.
My store had a Playtex pump also on clearance for $9.99. I can’t remember the exact type, unfortunately.
