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.

- All NEW Weekly Grocery Deals Start Today! I have full posts for many stores on my websites with deals I research, coupon and rebate matchups, etc. Many of the deals can be done online too, and I’ve included online ordering info. in these posts at the top. Later today, I’ll have a “Very Best” List of my favorites.

The Daily Digest Monday, March 15th

You CAN get all these offers online, and also see the products on the 50% off Daily Deals now. Some, not all will be cruelty-free/vegan. Target is usually good about including the pink cruelty-free bunny in the descriptions, but you’ll still want to check for vegan. For the 50% deals, I see Pacifica, Winy Lux and Yes To products coming up.
- Still need some deals for St. Patrick’s Day? These Weekly Grocery Deals deals go thru Tuesday, and the cabbage and potato sale extend into Wed. for Safeway.

This is a good online deal, and there are many other pasta types. I’ll put a whole wheat one in comments too. BARILLA Blue Box Spaghetti Pasta, 16 oz. Boxes (Pack of 8).
- Amazon: I really like this whole wheat penne pasta. I often put this in soups, I’ve found it’s best to cook it separately so it doesn’t get mushy sitting in the soup while it’s still hot.
- Amazon: I have a 30% off promocode to share on this 21 piece Bread Proofing Basket Set. (There’s also a 10 inch one). You can make really neat designs on your bread with the stencils, They show pictures with ideas, so cool! Use code 30K5U2XA

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.
