My Trip to Winco

Here is my trip to Winco today. While it doesn't represent a huge percentage of savings (only about 29%), I think that is all relative to the store you are at sometimes. Winco, like Walmart, generally has the lowest price around, so there are no additional discounts for sales to factor into a percentage. This being said, I bought 44 items and paid $49.00, using $20 in coupons. That's an average of almost $1 per item. Some of the my great finds today:

Dole Pineapple - .88
Used .55/2 from here
=.60 each

Nalley Chili - .48 with in ad coupon

Hy-Top Milk - $1.66/gal

Potatoes - .58/10 lb bag (this price was better than the ad!!!)

Strawberries - .97

Cheerios - .98 with in ad coupon
Stacked with $1/2 SS 3/7

Jimmy Dean Sausage - $1.38
Used $1/1 RP 1/31

French's Mustard - $1.64
Used .50/1 SS 3/21

Honey Kix - $1.98

Bandon Medium Cheddar Cheese 2 lb - $2.98 with in ad coupon

Bananas - .46/lb

I was also impressed with their price for Crisco ($4.12) and yeast ($2.94). Those are some of the lowest prices I've seen out there for these items.

Anyone else find other great deals at Winco this week?


Very nice trip! Can't wait until my Winco opens up!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
