You are here

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?

-16oz bottle of Dr bronner's rose 18-in-1 for less than $3

3L bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for $14.99  (a 1 liter bottle of EV olive oil is typically $7 here, I couldn't pass up the chance to get 3 liters for the price of 2 L!)

2 lb pakage quick rise yeast for $3.69 (those little 3 packets packages are usually $1.50, this is a steal!)  My bread maker is going to get a LOT more use now...

Whoa! You guys get some cheap stuff! Avocados for $.25? I'm happy when I can get them on sale for $1! I've never seen fake meats under $3. You guys make me want to move to where you are to find cheap foodz! No wonder I'm spending a hundred bucks a week on groceries. :(

YES, exactly!

Here, an avocado on SALE is 2 for $4.

I got so so excited at the veggie market that Theo recommended.  I didn't actually get too many great deals because we're still in our holiday accommodation, but I did get an avocado for NZ$0.60, so so cheap - BUT some stalls had them at 10 for NZ$3  OMG OMG OMG!!!!!

There were cabbages bigger than my head for $1. and lettuce as big as my head for $1.  Bunches of asparagus for $1, massive bunches of pak choy for $1.20.

Wow, when we do get our proper rental we're gonna have some serious soups and stir fries and other veggie-ful stuff.  Plus I'll come here and brag and post photos of the sizes of this stuff!

If it makes you feel any better, the other week I got a pineapple for $1 and an onion for 8 cents.
It evens out though... mushrooms have been 1.99/8 oz at the same market since October! Booo

8 cents? Why didn't they just give it to you? Too much trouble ringing things up.

Very nice! I turned in my taxes and calculated a fifteen dollar refund, and they sent me a letter that said I get a 250 dollar refund. I was pumped. But you are getting lots of money!

This is for you, VR:

Groceries today: $0.36
~1 lb carrots: 0.23
1 bunch cilantro: 0.13

I was going to go to the other store to get some broccoli for 0.33/lb, but was too laaaazy.

Yesterday I got some Arrowhead Mills cornbread stuffing mix (vegan!) at the 99 cents store for... 99 cents. I also got some accidentally vegan sandwich chocolate chip cookies (which also have carob chips - weird!) for 99 cents.

I actually got a good deal today.  Wow.  I'm loving the almond milk wars.  Every time I buy Silk or Blue Diamond almond milk at Kroger, it gives me a big coupon for the competing product.  This week the BD is on sale for $2.50 and I $1.50 off coupons, so I got them for $1 each.  Today it gave me coupons for free half gallons of the Silk.  They can keep on fighting over my business.

The store got their money from me with the $1.37 green bell pepper and $2 bunch of romaine.  No 13 cent cilantro here but I thought I did good with $0.68.

I love this too! Almost every time I buy BD I get a coupon for a free Silk!

I've been so spoiled by the cheap groceries here in Pomona. In west L.A., 3lb/$1 for onions was a steal I could only find at the local Kosher market. A couple weeks ago the 7lb/$1 sale on onions ended, and it went back to 3lb/$1 and I thought psssh! I'm not buying onions this week!

I used to be really good with coupons... I kept them organized by category in some organizing thingy, with an extra slot for coupons expiring soon. It's crazy how cheap you can get some things if you wait for a sale to use them. I got Silk (1/2 gal) for $1 one time, and Cheerios for $0.50 (before I knew the vit D in them wasn't vegan). I'd probably still be on top of it if I still got the newspaper (... for the coupons).
