If you live in Chicago
and eat bread
and buy said bread
and like to save money
and even if you don't
then please, please, PLEASE just listen to what I'm going to tell you.
Choose one Monday.
Go to the Entemenn's outlet. Shosh has blogged about it in the past. I thought I had blogged about it in the past but cannot seem to find it so pretend that I did.
Save lots and lots of money.
Why a Monday, you ask? Well the Entemenn's outlet gives you a punch on a card for every $5 that you spend. When you fill up the card you get $5 off your next purchase. Well, Monday is double punch day. So you get $10 of punches for every $5 you spend. Nice.
What do they sell at the Entemenn's outlet?
Weight Watchers products
They also have something called the counter special, which is a specific item for $.50 with any other purchase, no limit. Be still my heart.
AND they give you free product for every $10 you spend.
Basically, they keep throwing stuff at you.
Today, I bought:
16 loafs Arnold's bread (yes, I have a deep freeze)
6 bags mini bagels
3 boxes Pop'ems (which are popping right onto my thighs as I type)
2 bags hot dog buns
2 bags Thomas' english muffins
I paid $19.88 for 27 bags of bread products.
The bread was the counter special. So the bread was $.50 a loaf! Cannot. be. beaten. Ever. Trust me. I've tried.
Pop'ems were counter special as well so $.50 per box. Ahem. Usually...what? $3.79 per box. Ha.
English Muffins were free item with each $10 purchase) she was nice and gave me a second bag even though I was at $19.88.
Even if you say you have no time to coupon. I totally get that. So send the hubby. Go on the way to work. Drag the kids.
I figure I had about $150 worth of bread. For $19.88. Oh and I filled up my card so next time I go will be $5 less.
But I figure I won't be going until after Pesach.
