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.

Recipes & Meals
- Sharing again in case you missed it: You can freeze whole lemons! This works great if you find yourself with a windfall of lemons, but lack the time to juice them all at the moment. I just microwave them when I need lemon juice, then proceed with juicing. Here are frozen ones I was using last night for my Caesar dressing:
- I’m making a batch of my favorite Caesar Dressing right now. This stuff is good on everything! I make a double batch and use it for Buddha Bowls, all salads, even a dip over the week. Not my recipe, but I wrote up a post about it here. No one will guess it has zero added oil, it’s very flavorful! Looks like some of of my pics disappeared, I’ll add them again later. Recipe info. here:
- Salads with the Caesar Dressing I made. To a bed of Spring Mix greens I added cucumbers, apples, onions, little tomatoes from our garden, and Gardein Scallopini (Sprouts buy 2 get 1 free deal). They were yummy! I hope you make the dressing, it’s really good!
