What's on Sale This Week #1: 3/19/14-3/22/14

Hi everyone, and welcome to the first edition of What's On Sale!  I promised several of my friends in the local area to help them find the best deals available, and since I do it anyhow as I plan my own shopping trip, I decided that the best way to go about spreading the word would be to create a weekly blog post with this information.  So the purpose of this series is to pinpoint where to find the best deal on milk, bread, frozen vegetables, produce, pasta, etc.  Basically, if it's a price that I'm willing to pay, then I'll include it in the post!

I have chosen to use the weekly ad sale dates of the largest grocery stores in my local area, Food Lion and Harris Teeter, both of which typically run their sales Wednesday thru Tuesday each week.  Most of the other stores run Monday through Sunday.  In addition to Food Lion and Harris Teeter, I usually look at the online circulars for TargetSave A LotCarlie C's IGA, Walgreens, and/or CVS,  On rare occasions, I'll take a look at Family Dollar, Dollar General, and Ollie's.  And once in a blue moon, I'll plan a shopping trip to Dollar Tree or a tiny little grocery store near the house called Compare Supermarket (too tiny to have its own website) to see what deals I can snag.

In a typical week, I shop at 3-4 stores, depending on how good the sales are, what's in the budget to spend, and how my mood is (shopping with kids in tow can be trying!) 

Since I committed to finding all the best deals, I'll do my best to cover all the local territory, finding the best deals available to help you maximize your savings.  Although my target audience is family & friends in my local area, those of you who live elsewhere may certainly find plenty of bargains for national chains located near you.  Of course, sales vary by region, so check your local circulars and store's coupon policy.
