Katie also informed me that she has to make four batches of lemon squares for an event at school. She'll need at least a dozen eggs, and lemon juice, which we are low on. So I moved up my grocery shopping. Since Ralphs and Vons are across the street from each other, and near Treklet's school, I chose to shop both stores today. Vons has 16 oz containers of raspberries for $1.99 this week, which is a STEAL and a coupon for 18 eggs at $1.99, which is cheaper than Costco. In order to use the coupon, you have to have a minimum $10 order, so I got 2 containers of raspberries, a pound of pears for .99, a large bottle of Safeway lemon juice for $3.99 and a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts for only $1.97/lb. Yes, that was more than $10, but I couldn't resist the chicken at that price!
Ralphs is the winner for produce deals this week, other than the raspberries. I got broccoli, bananas, green beans, sweet onions & garlic. I also got 5 lbs of Roma tomatoes for .99/lb and made my favorite tomato soup with garlic and basil recipe as soon as I got home. It paired wonderfully with a grilled cheese sandwich and a pear for The Alien's lunch. For a complete list of the best Ralphs deals this week go here:
Remember that Petsmart 15% coupon from a couple of days ago? Well it just so happens that Petsmart had hay on sale today. I got two 48 oz bags and a 5 lb. bag of pellets for little Stinky and saved $7 in all.
Oh, and I got this link for a free sample of rabbit or guinea pig food from CareFresh!
