The Daily Digest for Thursday: Safeway $5 Friday, Amazon Deals on Nutritional Yeast, Blue Diamond Almond & Sun Butter, Half off a Rescue Pet Check-Up Center+ Much More for Less!

You can check out previous Daily Digests too, I keep a week’s worth of deals here.

I’ve changed the format of this a bit to make it easier for you to QUICKLY see the NEWEST Deals for the day (or Weekend Wrap-Ups.) I was struggling with how best to keep some of the previous deals around that were still good, without making it cumbersome to find that day’s New Deals. It seemed a shame to just delete some of the deals after a day that were still really good and long-term. But, I also want you to be able to quickly check on the newest ones, too! So, deals from the SAME day (or weekend wrap-up for 3-days) will be at the very top. Deals that you may want to reference later will follow.

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

Happy Saving!

  • I’m never certain the “right time” to start posting holiday stuff. Yesterday, my daughter was excited because they got in their Halloween merch at the store she works at. Then she told me two people came in and bought it all! And, she doesn’t think they will get any more. So, if it’s too early for Halloween I understand, but I don’t want you guys to miss out on anything you may like, either! I thought these Halloween Cat Collars were cute, and a nice alternative to more involved costumes.

  • After I made the banana muffins last night, I made a big batch of broccoli cheese soup for the week. I loosely followed Chef Chloe’s recipe from her 1st cookkbook, omitting oil. It is really yummy! I taste tested two bowls last night (!), and daughter had a bowl with sourdough. If you only make one thing this week, soup is a great option: frugal, inexpensive and filling.

  • Made a batch of Chef AJ’s banana muffins, 1st time trying this recipe. They were yummy and sweet without any added refined sugar. These are the silicone muffin pans I used. This is the best deal I’m seeing right now for this set. I always put mine on top of a cookie sheet before baking to stabilize, as they’re kind of floppy.

Grocery Stores

  • These large packs of Impossible Burgers are still at my Safeway, I’ve heard they may be seasonal. $15.99 for 6 burgers.
  • We did our big monthly shopping at our local Warehouse store today. We buy items here that are the best price out of all our sources (using my Price Book). Many of these are items that don’t tend to come up at the best prices during weekly sales. If you don’t have this store, you may have a similar Warehouse type store. You can likely look up prices online, too, for comparison.
  • Shopping this weekend? Check out all these great deals for your list:

Online Groceries

  • The Warehouse Store I shared earlier, US Foods Chef’Store, does offer delivery via Instacart and Shipt. Prices can vary from in-store. However, you can do Store Pick-Up with $150 orders and (it appears) get the same store prices. Could split with a friend or neighbor if you won’t spend that much. I need to do a post just for this store, but here is info. about Instacart and Shipt for now:
  • Online Grocery Shopping: Deals can differ from in-store, but there are still ways to save. You can try many of the services for FREE, too:

FREE Stuff

  • Reminder: Ibotta’s “Back to School Free for All” Still available! Has anyone done this yet? Even if you don’t use these items, would be great donations or give to someone else who is in need. If you’re new to Ibotta, you can get up to a $20 Welcome Bonus too.
  • More Ibotta Freebies: If you click on this in the app, you’ll also see new free offers for various drinks and bars. And, if you’re new to Ibotta, you’ll get a Welcome Bonus up to $20 when you redeem your 1st offer.
  • Reminder: FREE Slurpees in July! If you’ve already done it, you can get more for just $1.
  • Safeway: FREE Open Nature Burgers & Ground! I was checking the Flash Sales, and was disappointed nothing was vegan. Then, I searched for new freebies, and was happy to see these! If you don’t see the coupons right away, search with the word “free”. Note you have to clip the coupon in the app, and affiliate Safeway stores may have it too.
