Update 11/01: 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

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.

Happy Saving!


NEW Deals – Quick List!

The Daily Digest Tuesday, March 9th

  • 🥑Safeway All NEW Weekly Deals – Starts Wed.! It’s another great week: $.39/lb. Cabbage, Buy 1, Get 1 FREE Large Avocados, BOGO Best Foods Vegan Mayo, Sale on Daiya Pizzas, Lightlife Burgers + More!
  • 🌱Sprouts All NEW Weekly Deals – Starts Wed! Highlights: Cabbage $.50/lb., Strawberries one lb. $1.98, Annie’s Vegan Mac $2, Kashi Cereal as low as $.50, Kite Hill Yogurt $.12 + More! We’ll also have a $5/$40 coupon. See all the deals HERE:
  • 🐰Easter Candy Supply Update: Some of the No Whey items have sold out on Amazon, and some of the Natural Candy Store items as well, I’m still seeing lots of our dark chocolate Lindt Bunnies available in the stores and to order online.
  • Another Vegan Jelly Bean! Sun Ridge Farms Organic Jolly Beans. I found these at Natural Candy Store. You can get a 10% off code when you text the word NATURAL to 50812.
  • 🍓FREE Stretch & Flex Smoothie at Smoothie King! Thru 3/11. All of their smoothies can be made vegan. This one looked vegan, but I would ask about the supplement powder.
  • Target: I noticed recently that Target has a better everyday price now on Gardein – $3.29 per pack, whereas at my Safeway stores it’s $4.99. (You can also get Gardein for $2.79 this week with a 15% off Circle offer.) Target carries lots of other veggie meats that may be priced better than the supermarkets, too. It’s easy to compare prices with everything online now. Twenty years ago, I compared prices by visiting each store! 🙂 FYI: Check ingredients, as not all of these will be vegan!
  • Great deal on these in Today’s Deals – The Original Popco Tongs, Set of 3. These are very handy in the kitchen!
  • BIG discount on these in Today’s Deals! Premium Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls with Airtight Lids (Set of 5).
  • In Today’s Deals: Stainless-Steel Kitchen Utensil Set – 10-piece. This comes with some of my favorites: whisk, potato masher (great for bananas and beans, too!), tongs and slotted and non-slotted spoons.
  • 🐰These are still available and a good price per box. Handy if you have many Easter baskets to fill! SOUR PATCH KIDS Easter Bunnies Sweet & Sour Chewy Candy Pack of 12.
  • I got this deal previously on 3 packs of scissors, and these work really well! Look at those reviews. 🙂 I bought some scissors from a discount store during Christmas, and they didn’t work well at all. There are some a little cheaper per pair sets, but I recommend these as I’ve tried them. There’s currently a nice discount on these, I think it’s the same one I got before.
  • These individual packs of Hippeas have a 20% off S&S coupon, can cancel anytime. Other flavors also available.

Grocery Stores

Recipes & Misc.

  • 🥞Making pancakes this weekend? It can be SO much cheaper to make them from scratch, and since there are so few ingredients, it takes very little time. These freeze well, too. I find about 2-3 months is tops (for best taste) on freezing quick breads.

I’ve been putting Easter posts under this Holiday heading

We are starting to see some of our yearly sales on baking items. The best price I’ve found for baking items is usually in bulk large 25 lb. bags. My local Warehouse store, Smart Foodservice is where I tend to get the best price per lb. However, this time of year, flour, sugar and more will be on sale in regular stores, too. Sometimes this will beat my Warehouse store prices.

🎁I’m starting to add more to the “Holiday” Posts on my website. Take a peek!
