Jolene’s 99 Cents Only Shopping Trip 12/4

When can you go grocery shopping with $10, and get back change?  At the 99 Cents Only Store!  Organic items, too.  Here’s my trip, everything $1:

1.   Cascadian Farm Organic Apricot Fruit Spread, 10 oz.
2.   Muir Glen Organic Split Pea Soup, 14.9 oz.
3.   Earthbound Farm Organic Romaine Hearts, 12 oz.
4.   Fresh Jumbo Papaya (!)
5.   Campari Tomatoes on the Vine, 1 lb.
6.   Oscar Mayer Turkey Breast, 9 oz.
7.   Activia Yogurt, 4pk.
8.   Fleischmann’s Wheat Bread Mix, 14 oz.

The Wheat Bread Mix also contains ideas for personalizing your bread with fun mix-ins.  A warm loaf makes a thoughtful gift, and the gift to yourself is the comforting aroma filling your home!  The fresh papaya is wonderfully huge!  I’ve been known to eat half a papaya filled with cottage cheese for lunch.  Or try it with a squeeze of lime on top!

This week’s shopping trip highlight was brought to you by Jolene, the  TFF 99 Cents Only Store expert! Find a 99 Cents Store location near you.

    I am super jealous of that papaya!!! Maybe next week they will be in the Antioch store.

    • stephanie w., Fingers crossed for you! I actually bought 2 Jumbo Papayas — one ripe (for now) & one not-too-ripe (for later).

      Can’t beat the deals on their WHOLE fruit/veg = $1 regardless of weight! Choose the biggest one! Yesterday there was a choice of:
      – Melon (honeydew, cantaloupe)
      – Watermelon
      – Kabocha (a yummy velvety-fleshed pumpkin w/edible skin)
      – Butternut Squash

  2. Oh how I wish we had a store like that near me!!!!

  3. Thanks for posting this week finds! I also seen philadelphia cream cheese!

    • Anna, you’re welcome! I can also confirm Philly Cream Cheese (Reduced Fat) 8oz. Blocks & TempTee Whipped Cream Cheese Tubs @ Clayton Road Store yesterday.
