The Daily Digest for Tuesday: NEW Weekly Grocery Deals, Great Online Deals for Larabars, FREE Panera Coffee this Summer + Much More! Check out this post to get caught up on Today’s Deals:

Be sure to check out previous Daily Digests and the Weekend Wrap-Up, 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

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!

The Daily Digest Monday, 5/24

  • New 10% off Safeway coupon! We have until December to use it. You can check your Safeway app offers to see if you got it. If you want to want to use it on a big trip, wait to save it until you’ll use it, as it will come off your next trip as soon as you click it.
  • Target FREE Delivery Offer This Week: Thru 5/31, you can get FREE delivery ($9.99 value) with $75 orders. May be a good time to try some of those NEW Good & Gather Vegan Chopped Salads!
  • Target: At $2.79 reg. price, this is a good price for half gallon of almond milk. The Costco brand milk deals are still better, but I was happy to see this. Sometimes I’ll run out of Costco milk, and a backup plan is good! I try to go to Costco every 1-2 months only.
  • $.15 Corn at Safeway Starts Wed.! Crazy cheap!
  • Safeway Early Preview: I looked into my grocery crystal ball and we have a $2.77/lb. cherry sale coming up! Pictured are ones a friend gave me recently from Safeway, and they were amazing! They’re currently priced at $5.99/lb. so you may want to wait a few days if you’re wanting cherries. Sales can be regional, I’m in N. CA in the SF Bay Area. This sale starts Wed. For current Weekly Safeway Deals thru Tuesday, check out this post.
  • Safeway Sneak Peek – Starts Wed.! We’ll have a Buy 1 Get 1 FREE Melon Sale that includes watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew. Sales can be regional, I’m in N. California.
  • Freezing Bananas Tip: With the weather warming up, I’ll be making more banana nice cream. I like to freeze them on a cookie sheet 1st, then transfer to a ziploc bag when they are solidly frozen. This prevents them from sticking together, and it’s easy to just take out as much as you want.
  • Outlet Deal on JUCOXO Unbreakable Drinking Glasses 12 OZ, Reusable Cups for Kids, Wheat Straw Cups Tumbler BPA Free Drinking Cup, Sets 5 Multicorlor, Dishwasher Safe.
  • Nice Outlet Deal on Biscuit Cutter Set, Pastry Cutter Dough Blender Set Stainless Steel, Baking Dough Tools, Pastry Cutter Set Professional Quality.
  • Deal of the Day on many Mary Ruth’s vegan vitamins & supplements. I like that these gummies have B12 and D3. Not sure if all the items are vegan, be sure to check! I see many that are clearly marked vegan. I’ll put link to more in comments.
  • These soups are included in an “up to 39% off” grocery sale in Today’s Deals. I’ll put link to the sale in comments. Amy’s Soup, Vegan, Gluten Free, Organic Lentil, Light in Sodium, 14.5 Ounce (Pack of 12).
