Get ready for your jaw to drop – because this might come as a surprise to some of you – but I can’t coupon all the time. I just can’t. Sometimes I need a break, for my own sanity, and I want to just run out and grab something for dinner or for the kid’s lunches without having to clip a coupon, print a list, or check my laptop for any new deals. But that doesn’t mean I want to pay full price!!
When I give myself a break, I still shop frugally – and one of my best sources for non-coupon deals is the UGO Grocery Outlet in town. (They’re also known as “Bargain Barn”) I’m lucky to live right down the street from one – and I stop in about once a week just to grab a couple items. They carry discounted groceries from stores around the country – as well as cheap produce and milk and AWESOME deals on bread! (We’re talking $.89 for Merita bread or buns, consistently. Also – $1.39 for Arnold Health Bread!)
Their ads run from Sunday – Saturday, and you can check out the weekly ads HERE.
Check out a couple of this week’s deals (ending 2/25):
- Philadelphia Cooking Creme – $.50
- Dole Peach Fruit Crisp – $.69
- Weight Watchers Smart Ones Artisan Creations Southwest Fiesta Chicken – $1
- Pop Secret Popcorn 3-pack – $1
I will warn you ahead of time, that you will probably find expired products there as well. You’ll have to decide if it still seems safe to you. I often buy items that are just a couple days past their expiration date – because I know that they’re not spoiled yet.
