Shelves are getting barer and it is getting harder to use up all my coupons. Today I went to two different Albertsons to take advantage of a fabulous double coupon deal...$2.00 ($1.00 coupon doubled with Albertsons double coupon special) off on Excedrin PM that is on sale for $2.99. Basically I could get this for only 99 cents. Either there are lots of people having a hard time sleeping or they are catching on to this coupon game. I am torn about this new fad! I appreciate everyone learning the value of coupons...but I still want to get my deals as well.
I just need to practice patience! I was able to get one bottle of Excederin PM and will wait for another great deal to come along.
Today at lunch I decided to go to the Oroweat Bakery Outlet that is located on Everett Mall Way (the strip mall next to Trader Joes). I LOVE shopping at the various bakery outlets in the area. I cannot imagine why anyone would buy bread for full price when you can get some great deals at the bakery outlet stores. Today I got 2 loaves of bread, 2 packages of hamburger buns (the good kind!), 2 packages of hotdog buns (these were the good kind too!), 2 packages of english muffins, 1 loaf of cinnabon cinnamon bread and a candy bar (which you will notice is NOT in the picture above, I ate that sucker as soon as I got in the car). I got all this for $10.59!
I also got a punch card and after so many purchases...you get a free item. The Franz Bakery Outlet on Marine Drive in North Everett is really good too and is normally more generous with their freebies. I take turns going to them all. Hostess is located on Casino Road in Everett...love that one too but avoid it because there is too much temptation with those snack cakes...can you seriously look at a SUZY Q and not want to buy it???? I stay clear of that one.
All these items last great in the freezer. I have never had an item that tasted bad or didn't hold up. It is money well spent.
