Deals and Ideas from R.J. January 25, 2009

Thriftway has Jolly Time boxes of popcorn for $1.79 each but is a buy one get one free. So it works our to .90 per box.

Also if you are looking for a good deal on ground beef visit Albertson”s  around 7:15pm M-Sat when the butcher block area is closing.  You can find 84% lean hamburger for $1.49lb and 93% for $1.99.  It is not a guarantee there will always be some available because first come gets first choice.  However most days I go looking for it I find it.

Share ‘N’ Swap is next weekend on Saturday,  Jan. 31st @ Grace Bible Church.   Grace families (Academy Too)  can come at 9 am.  They can invite others to join them from 10 am-noon.

Thanks Renae (That’s an especially great tip on the ground beef).
