The big watermelons have arrived! Oh boy, I bought an entire 8 lb watermelon for only $1 at the 99 Cents Only Store. Here are my other finds, all $1 ea:
1. Fresh Strawberries from CA, 1 lb.
2. Whole Seedless Watermelon, 8 lbs. ($1ea regardless of weight)
3. Heritage Milk from CA, half-gallon
4. Nancy’s Dessert Spirals, 12 ct. frozen
5. Mrs. Smith’s Pumpkin Pie, 37 oz. frozen
6. Chex Mix, 8.75 oz.
7. White Onions, 2 lbs.
I jumped on the milk because it works out to $2/gallon, which beats my Personalized Price (Just for U) at Safeway by $.50! Now, in the past, I’ve found organic milk half-gallons at my Clayton Rd store. If you find those, you are lucky! The Nancy’s Dessert Spirals retail for $5.49 at Safeway. I found two varieties here for $1 — Double Chocolate or Strawberry Swirl. If you’re hosting a shower, graduation, or Girl’s-Night-In these little desserts are easy and expensive-looking.
Last night, I stumbled upon the Extreme Couponing television show. One of the couponers spends 20 hours/week preparing for her shopping trip. I personally do not have the time, energy, or attention span. Instead, I simply shop at the 99 Cent Only Store for great deals, no coupons necessary! And it is not time-consuming. Below is an example of what I accomplished in merely five minutes:
Spent $5 | Spent 5 minutes | Got 10 lbs. of Produce
(2) Fresh Strawberries, l lb. boxes
(1) Potatoes, 5 lb. bag
(1) Organic Fresh Kale, warehouse-sized 1 lb box
(1) Whole Fresh Cantaloupe
