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

Happy Saving!

NEW Deals – Quick List!

Weekend Wrap-Up Fri., Sat. & Sun. 4/09-4/11

Target

Beyond Burger 2 packs

Grocery Stores

  • Safeway: Stopped in for a few deals today, couldn’t pass up that $.29 pasta! These deals are in my Weekly Post and good thru Tues. (Oreos thru the month).
  • Safeway: I finally found the Folded Just Egg at my local store! It was in the freezer section, whereas the Just Egg bottles are next to the eggs. There’s a $1.50 Ibotta we can use on the folded at Safeway, and even a $1 coupon. I have the Ibotta and coupon in my Whole Foods Weekly Deals, note the Ibotta rebate is higher at Safeway.
  • Publix Shoppers: Some coupons & sales for you. These may or may not be your all-time lowest prices, but always great to see a store highlighting plant-based!
  • We have thru Tuesday on our Weekly Grocery Store Deals. Please check your ads for areas other than the SF Bay Area in CA. I am always happy to look at your area’s sales ads, too! Often times affiliate stores will have similar deals that I can easily spot. Don’t hesitate to ask, I love finding deals!

Drugstores

Online Shopping

  • If you have Whole Foods Delivery, this is a good deal on Annie’s Homegrown Organic Vegan Mac Flavor Pasta and Sauce, Cheddar 6 Ounce. In the past, the in-store sales were also included online, but I’ve noticed some changes with this recently. So, I can’t guarantee this will also be the in-store price. Annie’s Homegrown Organic Vegan Mac Flavor Pasta and Sauce, Cheddar 6 Ounce.
  • I’m also seeing Gardein on a good price for Whole Foods Online Orders. Gardein Sweet & Tangy Barbecue Plant-Based Wings. Haven’t tried this one yet, looks yummy! Gardein Sweet & Tangy Barbecue Plant-Based Wings.
  • Whole Foods Online: Nice discount on this MODERN TABLE Classic Vegan Cheddar Mac & Cheese, 5.89 OZ.
  • Disney Instant Pot 6 qt. just $59 shipped! Nice sale on this, there’s also a black and white design for $59.
  • Reminder: Macy’s Lowest Price of the Season Sale Ends 4/11, get this Air Fryer for $24.99!
  • Update: Currently it looks like it’s only for store pickup, but that may change back. Could depend on your area, too. Reminder: Vegan Hidden Valley Ranch just $2.98, can order for delivery:
  • Update: Looks like the $2 sale on soil and mulch is still going on, the mulch says in-store only now, and the soil can be delivered. May vary per location. Looking for Gardening Deals? Home Depot is having a “Bring on Spring Sale”. You can get mulch for just $2/bag delivered! There are some bags of soil also as low as $2, but you’ll need to check those for plant-based. (Thinking added fertilizers may not always be vegan). The soil deals look like they are in-store only.

FREE Stuff

Recipes & Money-Saving Tips

  • Sharing for our new friends: My goal is to pay the lowest-prices for my plant-based/vegan groceries. With a Price Book, I can pay the lowest all-time prices, not just in a single week’s sale. I started doing this 23 years ago, and I’ve done it ever since.
  • Daughter and I made Wow Butter Pies for her boyfriend’s birthday, he requests this for every birthday and holiday. You can also use peanut butter, we’re peanut-free due to an allergy. This pie is so yummy, and quite easy to make with no baking! The Oreo crust is perfect with this.

Coupons

  • High-value Printable Popsicle Coupons: $1.50/1 and $3/2. These are for character pops: Spiderman or Minions. Will make for some great deals if we get a sale on these. Can print two of ea.
  • The $1/1 Printable Coupon for Ben & Jerry’s is still available, print now and hold for a sale. We often get sales on these at Safeway. Can print two:
  • Sunday Newspaper Coupon Preview: Just a few, so I’ve included them with our last week.
  • Kite Hill coupon update: We currently have two printable coupons, $1 off any product and $2 off butter. These $1 ones are great to use on yogurt cups, will often make them free or about $.25 when paired with a sale and/or Ibotta.

Holidays:

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.
