Robin's Thrifty Tips: Weekly Grocery Deals

This week, our Fareway grocery store has really got it going on! They have quite a few items I will be going after. They have fresh head cabbage for .10/lb. We absolutely LOVE roast with carrots, potatoes and cabbage cooked in with it, so this really appeals to me.


Fareway also has Old Orchard brand frozen orange juice concentrate in the 12oz. size for .88 each. Another good deal is Starkist tuna which is on sale 2/$1. We are trying to eat healthier so this will be a great time to stock up on some tuna. Plus, my husband loves tuna melt sandwiches.

If you're into frozen dinners, they have Banquet brand frozen TV dinners for .79 each and they have Pepsi 2 liter products that are 10/$10. Totino's brand frozen pizzas are also 10/$10. We will occasionally buy these for a quick lunch item.

Gala apples are on sale for .99/lb. These aren't my husband's favorite brand of apple, but he will eat them if they are on sale cheap enough. .99/lb for the off season is really a good price around here.

Fareway also has fresh from the meat counter, ground pork on sale for $1.49/lb. and a coupon for Betty Crocker Angel Food cake mix for .99 a box.


Hy-Vee has quite a few good deals this week as well. They have one of my personal favorite brands of laundry detergent, Era, on sale this week for $2.97 for a 32 load bottle. Anymore, that's a pretty decent price for around our area. Del Monte canned fruits are .99 a can. Rice-A-Roni or Pasta Roni is 5/$5. We like to add a can of chicken to a box of that stuff.Yummy! Pillsbury Moist Supreme cake mixes are .88, and Creamette pastas are 10/$10 for the 12 or 16oz. box.

Those are some of the deals of the week for our area. What's going on in your neck of the woods this week? Any extra good deals to report?
