I just scored a....... (a thread about finding great deals!!!)

I  love to brag about how little I paid for something. Like my $2.00 boots, or $14 Tofurkey dinners. This thread is dedicated to all the good deals we find!  8-)

I just scored (2) three pound tubs of Earth Balance for $2.99!

At this gross discount grocery store which hardly has anything vegan, they had these HUGE ASS tubs of EB (commercial size?) for $2.99 each. I did not realize until I got home that she only charged me for one, and NO I did not go back to correct her error! It is sort of far away (now I'm sure karma will bite me in the ass at some point). But jeez.....6 pounds for 3 bucks! I need to take a picture so you can appreciate how large these are. They are bigger than my head.

Anyone else get any good deals lately?

....less expensive and more awesome grocery store!!!

I've been going to Kroger for all my generic grocery needs since I moved here, and I *thought* it was a great deal.... but recently I had to get a money order, and the closest location to do that (after bank hours) is this Publix not far from my apartment. It's about the same distance as Kroger, but in the opposite direction...and incidentally, in a slightly "nicer" neighborhood.

Sure, it's not open 24-7 like Kroger, but DAMN! Their store brand soymilk is WAY cheaper, and it has a better package design. ;D
even the employees are nicer. The checkout guy I had at my first visit was like, the best checkout person ever.

f'real, Publix rocks.

.......and I'm about to go score a FREE reusable grocery bag at Publix with the purchase of two items I've already planned on buying. sweet!

aaaahh yes, Publix! That was my store of choice for 10 years in Florida. I don't have one here, but we have something comparable (Ingles). I did love the Publix! One thing though, it always seemed they seemed to stop carrying items I bought all the time. And they were not good about special requests.

Yes, Publix is awesome.  There is one across the street from my hfs.  I buy a lot of things there (shh! don't tell my boss!).

RachelAnn  where is the "Amazing Savings" in Greenville?  I may have to make a trip next time I visit the fam. 

It is on White Horse Road, right off the I-85 exit.  If you're coming from 85 North, then take the White Horse Road/Piedmont Highway exit, then take a right onto White Horse.  It will be just a little ways down on your right.  However, it is easy to miss because it is tucked in a sort of flea market area.  It faces the main road, but you have to really be watching for it because the sign is small.  It is in a kind of dumpy white shopping strip, right in the middle of a couple other stores.  It might help to get more specific directions by calling the store, since I"m not sure exactly where you'd be coming from.  Hope this helps, though!

They're about the size of a fist, only more flattened. Hehee, so cute! :D

That's a neat recipe, Jane! I'd like to try it but I don't have most of the ingredients. I'm sure I'll come up with something. Maybe a risotto kind of thing. Hmmm... with roasted tomatoes perhaps... *scratches head* I'll show you what I end up with, since I'll have to take more photos of the leetle pumpkins!

HOLY SHEEEE -IT!!!!!

Yanno those coconut milk yogurts that normally cost $1.99 each?

I just scored 3 cases for $1.99 each!
One case of blueberry, one of raspberry, and one of strawberry-banana.
so $6 for 36 yogurts. At my regular HFS I would have spent $72.00. My whole fridge is yogurt. I just need to remember to eat them because they are about to expire.

Freakin' Amazing.
:D :> :)>>>

PS I don't like that the containers cannot be recycled here. I refuse to throw them away, so I have LOADS of little yogurt containers in the basement. ARGGGGGG.

at my school's dining commons, they have a salad bar where you pay by weight - something like 39cents/ounce. A lot of students get heavy, unhealthy salad stuffs - strips of ham and sliced egg and ranch dressing every where and cheese, etc (making an expensive salad), and though there are numerous vegan salad toppings (olives, baby carrots, mushrooms, pepperoncini, etc), I've just gotten tired of it all. They have 3-4 lettuces - iceberg (blegh), spinach (the kind they get is BLEGH), romaine (chemical tasting), and spring mix (much better). So, recently I've just been getting the spring mix with some kidney beans, and no dressing because I have my own in my room (also got sick of their Italian dressing). And now my salads (2-3 cups volume) cost... wait for it...
$0-$1.
Yeah, that's right. Sometimes they don't even register on the scale, and the cashier doesn't care (I work there too). I figure spring mix is probably the most expensive lettuce we get, but it basically weighs nothing! I'll be sure NOT to tell the management  ;)b
It's nice when eating healthy means eating for cheap.

i just bought fresh made tofu from this hole-in-the-wall storefront that is all locked up and you gotta call the number on the awning for the guy to come down to sell it to you.  you walk in and its a bunch of boxes and coolers full of tofu in baggies.. fresh & fried.  i got 2 bags fresh, 1 fried all for a dollar a bag!  i think the fresh ones have about a pound of tofu each and the fried is a little less.  i kinda felt like i was buying drugs or something..

btw, i had to try some already and it's great.  

i also got a packet of hazelnut pudding mix for 69cents!
