Grocery Sales Week of February 16, 2009

For those of you who've been on this list for awhile probably noticed that I don't often list deals on bath and beauty products.  That's because many of them I get on special deals at Walgreen's and CVS.  IMHO they have high regular prices, but when you match their special deals with coupons, you can walk out saving a bundle.  Each store has some "-isms" that take some time to get used to.  There's several blogs out there that have scouted out the bargins.
Here's a primer for CVS:
My advice -- start small and take it step by step.

Meijer (
& buy 10 for $10 (mix and match) and get the 11th one free

Bigg's (
buy 10 General Mills products and get $10 off your next order
(I don't have a print ad and can't read the fine print, so check in the store, but this could be a good deal - it's like getting $1 off each item.  Stack with coupons for an even better deal.)

Clorox wipes 35ct $2.50 (coupon in ad for buy 2 get 1 free --  makes them $1.67/each)

I haven't been in a few weeks, but here's a readers report....
I was at Aldi on Saturday, and they have a lot of their baking items marked down because they're from the holidays (they don't keep many of these things in stock year-round). Molasses (16 oz. bottle) $1.79, cocoa (8 oz. container) is $1.79, coconut is $1.39, and vegetable oil (REGULAR price) is always $2.29. They also still have milk for $1.99 and eggs for $.69.
(Note:  That's the best price on veggie oil -- if you need it, stop by Aldi with some cash.)

+c means there was recently a coupon in the paper for this item
+c* means there's a coupon for it and I think it's a good deal ONLY if you use the coupon
M-R monday through thursday sale dates only
B1G1F (buy one get one free)
** super deal -- seriously think about stocking up at this price if this is an item you use
w/c means with in-ad coupon
lim tells you what the limit is
