Blogger Spotlight!!!!!


I'm changing it up today for the blogger spotlight! Today I'm linking to my favorite local site, Mashup Mom. She posts about national and local deals. She has helped me save a ton of cash by showing the store deals and the coupons. As you know, I live north of Chicago so things are a bit pricey here. Run over to her site, find something that you would normally buy and come back and tell me what the price would be by you.
Givin' homework,

Pete's Market has Jif peanut butter for 3/$5 this week which is a good price.
The only grocery stores she does that we have are Aldi and Target(both national chains).
Who are you kidding, all the grocery stores there suck in regard to need to move near me so you can shop at Weis(PMITA)Markets!

I could compare apples to apples at Aldi, Whole Foods, and Target. Though sales and prices are not exactly the same if you bought the sales items only at those three stores you would come out spending virtually the same. I also clicked on the top ten for the various stores, figuring some of them would be similar to stores we have here. All I did was compare prices for what I traditionally buy. I understand I was cherry picking and only seeing the best of the best prices, but they are not far off from what I get regularly (or on sale) here and in some instances much better than my lowest prices. For example one of your stores had 5 lbs of potatoes for 68 cents, the least I find it here is 5 lbs for 99 cents.
My favorite sale item was vodka, only because all alcohol here is sold through state stores or state licensed package stores. I would love to be able to grab lettuce, dishwasher detergent, and a nice single malt scotch at the same store.

Sigh. We are much more expensive on the whole.

Having the sales ads up is a great help. However, there is a site that does that, too. She is generous to type that stuff. Or, maybe she does the copy and paste. Either way, it is a good blog. I just don't have some of the stores and don't buy some of the stuff she is highlighting right now. Remember, I cherry pick, so maybe if I were there and could price-match, this would be more helpful. Southern Savers always helped me since it is right in the state. However, it might have changed. I need to buy a news0a0er for Red Plum and cut the Carnation milk coupon.

Looking at the inserts before I buy the paper helps. Sometimes, there are no coupons I use, so that preview is valuable!
