The Daily Digest for Thursday: Safeway $5 Friday, Sprouts 25% Off Bulk Coupon, Possibly FREE Alpha Foods Breakfast Sammie + 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 made tomatillo salsa with homemade oil-free chips. First time I’ve made it, was yummy! I would like to make some chik’n enchiladas with it this weekend…with homemade seitan, refried beans, Mexican rice, tofu sour cream. We’ll see how far I get! Please feel free to share any vegan food you’ve enjoyed recently, or food you want to enjoy soon!
tomatillo salsa with homemade oil-free chips
  • My review of Alpha Breakfast Sandwiches: (pictured in featured photo above) Trying this as I type! Verdict? Yum! 4/5 stars. The sausage is dominant, so really feels like a substantial sandwich. I like the sausage, great texture and flavor. I read their microwaving instructions and thought about how that would cook. I thought the muffin may get soggy, so I cooked it separately in my toaster. The filling I microwaved for about 30 seconds per side, but I did have to reheat as a chase ensued between Ursa and Ace down the hall. I added a bit of Best Foods vegan mayo, too. Daughter did the same plus lettuce. I hope you find these at your Costco and enjoy trying them!


  • Daughter got her 1st new Halloween decor today, a cute vampire candle holder from Bath & Body Works. Halloween is her favorite holiday, she loves making costumes. If you celebrate one, what is your favorite holiday?
  • Free with Kindle Unlimited: A Very Vegan Halloween: The Witch’s Cauldron Cookbook (The Vegan Holiday Cookbook Collection) [Print Replica] Kindle Edition.
  • These look fun for Fall/Halloween. On their store front, company states their products are cruelty-free. Halloween Set of 6 Premium Grade Fragrance Oils – Autumn Wreath, Pumpkin Pie, Candy Corn, Marshmallow, Night Air, Caramel Corn.
