Frugal tip: watch for super berry sales

Isn't that a beautiful bowl full of raspberries?

Since I've started shopping frugally, I check four grocery ads without fail every week - two local stores, Aldi and Dillons.

In this case, only two weeks after they had blueberries on sale for 99 cents a carton, Dillons had raspberries - normally $2.99 per carton - on sale for 99 cents. I bought four.

I savored them on top of my fake granola sundae. I ate them raw. They would have been great in a dessert or in yogurt. I should have bought more and frozen them (D'oh!).

So keep your eyes open for a good-for-you treat that is suddenly a little more affordable, stock up and enjoy.

  1. What a bargain! I need to keep my eyes out. I love berries but don't buy them when they're really expensive. I think I could do 99 cents!

  2. You only bought 4!?! I would've been collecting change from the sidewalk to buy as many as I could! Freeze, make jam, or make lots and lots of yummy treat with it. I wish they had a good sale like that out here on yummy fruits and veggies. I'm going to have to keep my eyes peeled, now that I know it's a possibility.

    1. Gosh, I know it. *head smack* I should have bought several more and frozen them, next time I'll remember!
