Econo Foods Run

This evening Joe, Henry and I went out to a local Mexican restaurant for dinner.  Delish.  And since we were already on that end of town, we made a pit-stop at Econo Foods.  On the way Joe just happened to mention he had a hankerin' for Pizza Rolls.  Score - on sale, plus I had a coupon!  Not as good of a deal as I would have liked, but a happy hubby makes up for the price difference.  Econo is having some really great sales right now, paired with coupons.  Tomorrow (Saturday), they have a 20% off all frozen items sale.  I might head over during Henry's nap for a few more deals...

Here is what we snagged:

ShopKo Baby Sale

I just got an email from you can see from the logo above, they are having a baby sale.  The email lists the following:
  • 50% off baby and toddler sets & separates
  • All baby gear on sale
  • Save big on everyday essentials
Now, being that ShopKo is traditionally more expensive than Target, I'm not sure if these sales will be any good.  If I have time, I'll pop in and report back if I find anything worth it!

I have two words for you:  Mozeralla sticks. 90% off!

Saving money on vacation tip:

Starting today, 9/9, and last for 99 hours is having a 90% off sale.

90-stinkin'-percent!  This directly follows their 80% off sale, which was also amazing.

90% means you can get a $25 giftcard for a buck.

I just purchased 3 of these during the 80% off sale for our upcoming December Disney World/New Orleans trip.  We eat on property at Disney, but in NOLA, we'll be venturing all over the City, so these gift certificates are a great buy!  $25 off a meal for a buck or two? .... OKAY!

We are back from vacation!  We had a wonderful time, and I'll probably share some of my wheeling and dealing for Disney World trips in a future blog post, until then....
