The Daily Digest for Wednesday: All NEW Weekly Grocery Deals started today, see full posts and My VERY Best Deals List, Good online deals for Annie’s Vegan Mac & Larabars + More! Check this post to make sure you don’t miss any longer-term deals from today!

Be sure to check out previous Daily Digests and the Weekend Wrap-Up, I keep a week’s worth of deals here.

My work desk with The Penny Pantry mousepad, keyboard

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

  • These are the Target drinking glasses I was drinking my iced coffee out of the other day (I’ll put photo in the comments). I had been looking for an affordable (duh! LOL) set for some time. I only needed some taller ones. I really like these! They are substantial without being heavy, and at $13 for 6 a good deal. I really like the design, too! Some reviews said having the raised design on the inside made them hard to clean, but I don’t anticipate any issues in the dishwasher and won’t let stuff build up. I ordered mine from Order Pickup.
