Safeway Specials for Storage

A blogger wrote about a special on potatoes this week at Safeway: 10 pounds for 99 cents. I bought 10 bags so 100 pounds of potatoes for under 10 dollars.

While I was there today, picking up the second set of bags of potatoes, I looked around. Here's what else I found for our storage:

- close-up toothpaste at 99 cents
- betty crocker brownie mix for 79 cents a box
- dial liquid hand soap for 99 cents
- cheerios for 1.67
- rice or pasta roni for 99 cents
- safeway canned beans for 89 cents

While I was in the baking aisle for the brownie mix, just above it I noticed that betty crocker has come up with gluten-free baking mixes: chocolate cake, brownie, and chocolate chip cookies. I got a chocolate cake and brownie, each for $3.70. My kid's birthday is coming up, so he'll get a tasty treat!

These are just the items I took advantage of that were on sale. If only I'd had coupons with me!

Hmmm... wonder what's up next?

U should not use Liquid hand soap as people (children and some adults) use more liquid soap, bar soap lasts longer!
