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 11/10.

Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, Food Lion and Aldi deals are valid through 11/13.

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.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the additional deals Blue Devil!

    I just fixed the missing milk-bone store info. Sorry about that. :-)

  • scoutmomof2 Nov 8, 7:43 p.m.

    Milk bones are at CVS, I was looking for them also.

  • terr19 Nov 8, 10:47 a.m.

    Where are the milk-bone biscuits on sale? Thanks.

    Food Lion has Duncan Hines cake mix and frosting 4 for $5 and I have a coupon for $1 off 2 but I don't remember where I got it from. If I just bought one frosting and one cake mix and used the coupon, this should be a good deal. Also IGA has Green Giant canned veggies for .44 each. Food lion also has Degorno pizza 2 for $10 and I have a coupon for $1 off 2. I think this is a good deal if you like this brand of frozen pizza.
