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

NEW Deals – Quick List!
The Daily Digest Wednesday, March 10th
Announcements: All New Grocery Deals Started Today!
- We love these Butler Soy Curls at my house! They are pricey, and in a 3-pack the price stops to drop per price of each bag. There’s also a 4.,6, 24, even 12 lb. pack for additional savings. We have occasionally seen this in the Warehouse Deals. You can also order them directly from Butler, but you’ll have to pay for shipping.
- Nice discount on this Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Liquid Dish Soap Refill, Cruelty Free Formula, Lemon Verbena Scent, 48 oz, Looks like it may be a Whole Foods delivery deal only.
- I will be forever grateful that my Mom encouraged my interest in cooking at a young age. Get those kids in the kitchen! This book, geared for 8-12 year olds is currently FREE with Kindle Unlimited. The Vegan Cookbook for Kids: Easy Plant-Based Recipes for Young Chefs.
- Good deal currently on Miyoko’s The Homemade Vegan Pantry: The Art of Making Your Own Staples. The Caesar dressing recipe I love is included in here. Highly-rated.
- Nice discount on these! Home EC Stainless Steel Salt and Pepper Grinders refillable Set – Short Glass Shakers. We love having freshly ground salt and pepper at the table, and I have an extra pepper grinder in the kitchen too.
- If you’re doing your grocery shopping from home these days, there are still deals to be had! In the past, most online prices differed from in-store sales. This has been changing in a good way recently. If you’ve avoided online ordering because you found it too expensive in the past, you may be surprised at what you find now. Here are some discounts and lots of “try it free” deals I put together:
- Sprouts: 2 FREE Kite Hill Yogurts when used with the $5 coupon! I did this yesterday with the 20% Plant-Based coupon. Details in my post here under “Refrigerated” header.
- Sprouts: Deal got even better, Sun Cups now just $.49!
- The $5 off $40 coupon is now in the Sprouts app. Think of it as 20% off when evaluating your deals. I scrolled down a bit in the app and saw it. Note it is regional and excludes some states. This coupon is separate from the other barcode coupons, so be sure to use both!
- Sprouts: I found the Vegan Unicorn Gummies!
- Sprouts: I’ve added a couple more deals to my Weekly List including Good Karma Flaxmilk or Sour Cream for $1.49.

- Daiya Coupons: You can signup for the newsletter and receive future coupons.

- Safeway: Daiya Pizzas will be on sale for $6.99 starting tomorrow. There is still a coupon that can be printed if you got it in your e-mail a couple of months ago.
- Our Target Deals go thru Saturday. The Fun Run Sale is this week! The offers are Circle offers, be sure to save them in the app. You can even stack other Circles with these, there are a few for fruits and veggies, and there’s a 20% off ALL fruits and veggies. Can use for online orders, too
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!

- 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!

- 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.

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!
Other Online Deals:

You can use the promocode SPARKSTORE15 Instacart gave to me to share with you! You’ll get $15 off a $50 order, and get your order in as soon as 2 hours.
- Safeway: Get $20 off and FREE Delivery on your 1st Online Order. Use promocode SAVE20
- Whole Foods Delivery: If you use Whole Foods Delivery, the sale prices I post in my Weekly Deals are the same online! True, you can’t use coupons, but some of the deals are still really good.

Recipes & Meals
