Frugal Friday

In this new, devastating Obama economy, being frugal is even more important!

This week’s theme is groceries. If you live in the 7 state Hy-Vee territory, today is their Friday the 13th sale! There are some great deals to be had.

Midwest Country Fare Ice Cream (4 qts) $2.88
Hy-Vee Cereal $.99
Hy-Vee Fresh Sliced Pork Steak (LOL…ironic don’t you think?) $.99/lb.
Bakery Fresh Hamburger Buns $1.13
Not Less Than 80% lean Fresh Ground Beef $4.77
2 Entree Chinese Meal $3.99
Palermo’s Classics Pizza 6 for $10
Pilgrim’s Pride Boneless Chicken Breast $4.99
Hy-Vee Water $2.99 (if you absolutely NEED to have bottled water)
Dole Iceberg Lettuce $.69
Hy-Vee Butter $1.48 (yummm….REAL butter!)
Nissin Top Ramen Noodles $.13

There’s some coupons in the print ad for Midwest Country Fare Brown or Powdered Sugar for $.99, Sour Cream for $.48 and bagged Garden Salad for $.69.

Also pick up a Hy-Vee coupon book at the store entrance. My favorite deal in this book is a code for a Free Red Box rental. A free movie is very frugal entertainment! Just be sure you have time to watch it and return it the next day or you’ll be charged for a second day rental.

You’ve probably noticed that Hy-Vee’s corporate print ad (the one that likely comes with your newspaper) has been much smaller as of late. They have moved towards on-line ads which are much larger. I’m not sure why they’ve done this, but skyrocketing printing costs come to mind as well as the fact that newspaper readership has dropped. You should always check the online ad for a much wider selection of good deals as you make your shopping list. It is available at:

Choose to view the “online ad”. As far as I can see the online ad version includes all the items included in the corporate print ad as well as all the additional items, so there’s no need to print both versions if you do not have the print ad.

You can download it and print it to make it easier to create your grocery spending plan.
