Just the Basics

 

Here is your weekly list of good sale prices for the basics at our various grocery & drug stores including milk, meat, produce, eggs, bread, coupon items & more. This list includes deals from the sales ads, with a few regular priced items included. Please add any other great deals on basics that you find!

 

 

Kroger, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens deals are valid through 11/3.

Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Food Lion and Aldi deals are valid through 11/6.

The big news this week is that Harris Teeter AND Lowes Foods are offering the Super Doubles promotion. You can see all the specific deals on the posts I have made this week for those stores.

Kroger is running their very popular “What a Deal” promotion where you buy 10 participating items and get $5 back at the register. It’s basically like getting .50 off each item. You need to buy all 10 in the same transaction.

Abbreviations used below include:

HT = Harris Teeter
LF = Lowes Foods
FL = Food Lion
RA = Rite Aid
WG = Walgreens

    topcobwife, where did you find the $1/2 coupon for the Kraft cheese singles?

  • little blue 2 Nov 1, 9:49 p.m.

    I believe that the $1.99 for butter at Aldi is their "new lower price", not a sale price. At least I hope so!!

  • TopCopWife Nov 1, 11:10 a.m.

    Kraft Cheese Singles at HT for $.99, if you have the coupon for $1.00 off 2. The are BOGO this week.
