Weekend Update

We got snow here overnight and it's still on the ground! I thought winter would start early this year, but not on November 3rd!!!

Here's some new stuff:

Thursday Update

I was in Tops today and it was so depressing. The produce section was very small, items weren't getting restocked and there weren't any magazines or books! I think I might try another Tops in the area and see if it's any better. But my guess is, because the rumor is all Tops are closing December 7th, they won't be restocking. And it's also rumored their last ad is going to be next week! I'm going to miss Tops! They've always had better sales and loss leaders than Giant Eagle.
Here's some deals to look for this week at Tops:

  • Smart Ones, 5/$10
  • Progresso Vegetable Soup, 10/$10
  • Chef Boyardee, 10/$10 (coupon)
  • Hamburger Helper or Potatoes, 4/$5 (coupon)
  • Pillsbury cake mix or brownie mix, 10/$10
  • Ragu, 10/$10 (coupon)
  • Rice a Roni or Pasta Roni, 10/$10 (coupon)
  • Barilla pasta, 10/$10
  • Lipton sides, 10/$10 (coupon)
  • Tidy Cats litter, 2/$3 (coupon)

And now that Giant Eagle is taking over, they are offering double fuel perks from Nov.2- Dec.27. Here are some deals from this week's ad (ends Nov.8)

  • Klondike bars, 5/$10 (buy 5, get 1 free)
  • Capri Sun, 5/$10 (buy 5, get 1 free)
  • Dr. Pepper, 4/$11 (buy 4, get 1 free)

Happy November 1st!

How was your Halloween? Ours was good. Our neighborhood really gets into Halloween. There were people outside, handing out candy. Some had firepits going. It was fun, my son had a great time.

However, when I was a kid in my old neighborhood, it was not the nicest on Halloween. Total chaos ruled the night, along with eggs, smashed pumpkins, shaving cream and toilet paper. It was actually scary to go out on Halloween night when I was a kid. And the neighborhood didn't have set hours for trick or treating. So, we'd get trick or treaters from 5 pm to after midnight, it was crazy.

I'm glad Halloween is over now and I'm looking forward to the holidays!

I went to Target today to check out the Halloween clearance and there were lots of people there. Check the list of stuff to look for. And be sure to match candy with coupons to save more!

And here's a fun quiz, what kind of American accent do you have? My results were totally accurate!

Monday Update

Have you seen the new toy sale in "deal of the day"? Toys R Us is having their Big Book sale and it's online too, with free shipping! Take a look at the sale and get your deals now!

There are several Amazon.com deals ending tomorrow, Oct.31, see the list here. And don't forget, if you want to stock up on Halloween candy or costumes, clearance starts on November 1st. I've found stores are pretty aggressive about clearing out Halloween merchandise, to make way for holiday merchandise.

Speaking of Halloween, I was in Old Navy and they have the cutest Halloween costumes for kids and babies, 75% off!! These include a Princess costume, frog, lion and more. They also have lots of other clothes on clearance right now.
