It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time once again for my favorite deals at the grocery stores this week! These days our time at the grocery store seems even more important than ever…it’s one place we go every week and we want to get in and out as quickly as possible. Prices are good through May 5th. Grocery stores have new hours to make sure they have time to restock and clean thoroughly, be sure to check those before you leave the house.
If you’re out of work, the grocery stores are definitely hiring right now.
Be sure to print off all of the April coupons.com coupons before they’re gone, then come back and print off the May coupons. Current (as I’m typing this) coupons include: $1 off Colgate Optic White toothpaste (my FAVE or select other kinds), $.50 off Pace salsa or Picante sauce, $1 off Colgate mouthwash, $3 off one Covergirl eye product, $8 off Claritin, $5 off two boxes of Clairol hair color products, and more!
I am a fan of the Ibotta app, head over here to load it to your phone. You’ll get money back for buying all kinds of things probably already on your list at Fry’s, Safeway, Albertsons, Target, Walmart, Sprouts, Costco, Bashas’, Walgreens, CVS, Sam’s Club, Whole Foods, Food City, Dollar Tree, Total Wine, and other places you’re probably already shopping. When you find items you’re getting, you upload your receipt and scan barcodes of the items and you can add the cash back directly to your Paypal account ($20+). Some of my favorite cash back offers this week are $.25 back when you buy Pace salsa or picante sauce, $.25 back when you buy Dreyer’s ice cream, $.75 back when you buy Luigi’s Real Italian Ice, $5 back when you buy Muscle Milk powder, $4 back when you buy Miralax, $3.50 back when you buy a 12 pack of Muscle Milk, and lots of money back on White Claw, beer, wine, and other drinks, The savings can add up FAST (and I think it makes shopping a little bit more fun).
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to be better at grocery store couponing to the extreme, my friend Juli at Bargain Believer is an expert! She wrote me a few weeks ago and let me know that she’s offering her online course for free for 30 days to anyone who would like to learn (she usually charges $20). Head over here to get signed up. She also offers a Beyond Membership for $7/month that includes really easy coupon matchups (she and her sidekick Gina spend hours and hours on this), but you definitely do not need to sign up in order to take the course
