It Pays To Check Out The Clearance Shelf

I got a 12-inch SS Calphalon saucier with a glass lid the other day at Bed Bath and Beyond for about $38. Original price $79 and change. It had been the display model.

Already made a perfect peach cobbler in it and am thinking up new dishes to try out.

i love clearance items. i've gotten spices for $.19, jeans that i'm thinking were supposed to be $80 for $2.40 (now i have to find the reciept and see for sure), film for $1.99 (not that good a deal, but much cheper than usual), ribeye steaks MANY times for $3 off per steak, veal cut for scallopine for $3 off, (meat dept. at my favorite store puts all the meat that only has 2 days left before its sell-by on sale at night, and i often shop in the middle of the night, so i catch the best bargains before anyone else), and i've gotten some other really good deals.

My friends call me the bargain queen around here -
I recently got Cole Haan dress shoes for the h for $3 (no this wasn't a bargain store, they were on major clearance at a dept store!), a wallet for 80 cents, a beautful set of martini glasses with a shaker and glass stirring sticks for $3 (same sale as the shoes) and a 1928 bracelet (orig price $32) for 47 cents. Grocery shopping 2 days ago, I saved $116, cause I do the grocery game.
Then there's all the garage sales....woo hoo!

Jkath- I am a Grocery Gamer also and love that I only have to spend $30-$50 per week on groceries for our family of five, and could probably live for months off what I have stockpiled! I've found some pretty good deals at Target on occasion. Just got a $40 car cover for $8 and a $20 kids suitcase on wheels for $5. Also can get things like mints ($0.06) and shampoo ($0.69) pretty cheap with coupons. I've gotten to where I can't bring myself to buy anything unless it is at least 50% off!

What's the Grocery Game??

I love a good sale. Love talking about how much I DIDN"T spend on something.

yeah, but how many kids can you fit in the suitcase before the wheels break?

Buckytom- You're so funny! I think I could only stuff one of my kids in there before I ran out of room in the cute little ladybug suitcase! The wheels wouldn't be the issue.

Anyway...

pdswife- The Grocery Game is an online weekly listing for your local grocery store. Once you subscribe, they will post the items your store has listed at a rock bottom price for that week and if there are any available coupons to use along with the sale price. The general idea is that you stockpile items you use when they are at their lowest price, therefore eliminating the need to buy anything at full price, except milk, fresh produce, etc. I almost always pay around 60% less than the regular price.
Hope that made sense!
