In my Penny Pantry Facebook Group, I post many deals & info. throughout the day including freebies, deal updates & changes, Amazon Deals, meals & recipes, food discounts I run across + more! Some are more timely than others: the Amazon Warehouse Deals tend to come and go quickly, so Facebook is a good platform for me to let you know about those deals quickly.
Posts here on my website take longer to write and deliver, so I primarily use it for Weekly Grocery Deals, and other deals I think you may want to reference later. But, I’d like to bridge that gap as not everyone is on Facebook. Plus, it may be nice to have the Daily Deals together, as the Facebook feeds don’t run exclusively chronologically.
So, I’ll try this out and see how it goes! Please let me know if you think this will be useful as a companion to my Facebook posts. And, if you’re on Facebook and haven’t joined our group yet, I hope you will join and become part of our active, supportive vegan community! <3 Amy
Note on photos: Some may be illustrative of a product, but not the actual product. For example, I may use a general photo of apples I took to report on a sale on apples.

When I shop Weekly Sales, I want to pay the lowest price that an item comes up for over time. For non-perishables, I’ll buy enough to last until the next sale. For perishables like fresh fruit & veggies, I may buy apples this week if on the best price, and oranges the next, for example. Here are all the VERY Best Deals this week for my area in Northern CA:

Previous Deals Still Available:
This is exciting – Moo Free Vegan White Chocolate AND Milk Chocolate Advent Calendars! I’ve never seen this version before. I’m a little hesitant as there aren’t any reviews, and this is not sold directly from No Whey. In the past, I’ve (and many of our members too) ordered either from Natural Candy Store or via Amazon shipped directly from Amazon. The price is good! Let me know what you think! We will also see more Moo Free Advent Calendars soon via our regular sources.
- Good deal on Back to Nature Vegan Cheddalicious Crackers in the Pantry! I have yet to try these, but I know many of our members have and really liked them.
- This is a large pack of Foam Pumpkin Decorating Kits, makes 16 pumpkins. I love the no-carve kits, as you can make the pumpkin into pie later. This one is nice that the foam stickers give more of a 3-D effect.
- Pumpkin Waffle Maker Now discounted on Amazon! If you’ve been eyeing this at Target but find it easier to order thru Amazon, here you go! Note: Looks like the price I’m seeing below is not the discounted one, click for current price:
- This popular Melissa and Doug Wooden Advent Calendar is on a discount right now. Re-use every year! Highly-rated.
- I’m seeing a better deal on this box of No Whey Halloween chocolate now, and there’s no longer a shipping fee as before! But. FYI it looks like the reviews have gone down due to melting, too.
- A decent price for Barilla whole-grain pasta, 8 boxes. There have been lots of sales on regular pasta lately, but whole-grain is not always in my stores or on sale. There’s also a decent price on whole-grain penne.
- There is a good discount on these masks right now and they have good reviews. Please do your own research about using masks.
- I think I found my Halloween costume LOL. I’m a cat sweatshirt.
This is cracking me up! Vampire Cloak with Bowler Hat. Maybe it’s especially funny because it’s 3 AM LOL. I’ll be back soon with more deals for us! This may have an additional 35% off coupon to click!
- It is also VERY easy to make your own Halloween chocolates with silicone molds. Melt vegan chocolate chips, pour and let set! These can be reused every year, too! I thought this was a good value for three trays, but there are many others as well. 3 PCS Silicone Halloween Ghost Pumpkin Baking Mold Set.
- 🎃Funny vegan Halloween shirt! It’s hard to see here, but it says “Graaains!” LOL.
- 🎃 Another FREE Vegan Halloween Cookbook with Kindle Unlimited: The Ghoulish Gourmet: A Bewitching Collection of Vegan Halloween Recipes.

Cats of the Penny Pantry in the
Target Halloween Castles!
- My daughter made a collage with all our fur babies in their Haunted Castles! Please take a look to make sure I’m not missing anyone’s photos. I think I got them all, but they were in several places so I could have missed it.
I hope your kitties are enjoying their Halloween Castles as much as Ace is! Last night, he was sleeping on the top. He also thinks the side is a snack LOL.
- Ace is enjoying his Target Halloween House. 🎃😻🎃
Spooky! Video of Ace with the Target Halloween Cat House.
- Target: How cute is this?! Double Decker Cat Scratcher Halloween Cat Castle. Similar ones sold out quickly last year. These are $16.99 and ship for FREE for Red Card Holders, or with $35 orders for all. Other houses available, too!
- Christmas ones are available already as well:
Recipes & Meals
- Making some midnight banana bread. I finally got a hold of white wheat pastry flour that I like to make quick breads with. These are oil-free and sweetened with maple syrup. I use this recipe from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen.
I LOVE these silicone pans! These banana breads are 100% oil-free, and they don’t stick to these pans at all!
Made a yummy one-pot pasta tonight with sunflower parmesan on top:
- Holiday Baking Season is around the corner! You could spend a small fortune on your ingredients, but you don’t have to. With a little awareness of prices, it’s possible to save a bundle in this area just as you can with everyday grocery purchases. Here’s a little post I wrote last year:
Get $30 Off Purple Carrot with promocode CARROT30. You can also view their weekly meals & recipes for FREE inspiration and ideas!
My Holiday Recipes:
- We need tofu pumpkin pie to go with our tofu turkey! (Looks like some of my pix need to be reloaded, for some reason I always lose some with WordPress updates.) Here’s me and my weegan making pie together one year. I love this pie! (and my girl! ❤) I use fresh pumpkin, and last year I steamed it in my Instant Pot. I’ll add those instructions to the recipe.
Vegan Meal Delivery Options:
- Grubhub: Grub Hub Deals: I’m seeing lots of FREE Vegan Delivery Options in my area! (No special code required). Offers tend to be regional, but you should have some FREE offers for delivery, too. Fast Food tends to offer Free Delivery, like Taco Bell and Burger King. Some even have additional $ off discounts.
Update: Looks like the NEW Pinterest setting is working well on my site, pin away! 🙂 You can now pin any of my recipes
Happy Saving Everyone! <3 Amy
