Pet Peeve

I hate to walk into a store to find that the signage is all wrong.  I was so excited when I went to Dollar General and saw a 90% sign on a table filled with items I could use.  I believe Dollar General is the worst at grouping a lot of items together and once you get to the register you find that nothing is on sale except for a few items that were included on the table. As the cashier began to scan all the items the prices were not what I expected so of course I stopped him in his tracks and pointed to the table right behind me.  Then I got the usual spill, it's not everything on the table just a few selected items with green dots.  Of course, I didn't get any of the items I had chosen, but decided to go back to the table just to see what was on sale.  There wasn't one green dot item on the table.  I guess I will not be trying to purchase clearance items at Dollar General anytime in the future.

I'm Back

School has been so busy so I haven't had an opportunity to post the deals I've found lately.  Frankly, there hasn't been much out there to get me excited.  Well I'm back and it's getting closer to the holidays, so many food items will begin to go on sale at a huge discount and I don't want to be left out.  Let's see what we can save together in the next upcoming months and I will be sure to keep you posted.

Popcorn @ Walgreen's

Looking to stock up on popcorn, head over to Walgreen's where they have a great sale going on.  There is a double discount when you purchase ACT II popcorn.  The popcorn is on sale for BOGO free and there is also a coupon in this week's circular.  I purchased all 16 bags of popcorn for $2.06 this is including tax.  Wow, I have enough popcorn to last for a while.  Since we were introduced to the letter P this week in class I think we just may have a Popcorn Party.
