Grocery Store Pics for the week of 1/6/10 - LF Update!

It's chicken time!!!!! 
Do you remember me mentioning a few posts ago about purchasing chicken, cooking it, deboning and freezing it?  That's exactly what I'll be doing this weekend.  Food Lion has their whole chickens on sale for .59.  The absolute best price that I have found is .49, but I am getting low and it will only cost me about .30 extra per chicken.  Yes, that's a lot of money (just think of the tax that you could pay on the free rice, pasta, crouton, etc.) - but sometimes you have to suck it up.

Three Day Sale:  Begins Friday at 8:00 a.m. and ends Sunday.  Check out for more details.  Looks like fairly good prices on papertowels and toilet paper.

Food Lion Private Brand Super you may or may not know, Food Lion has several "house" brands.  They are having a week-long Super Sale on their Food Lion Brand and Home 360 Brand.  Basically, the more you purchase, the more you save.  There is no $ off the actual items (unless the item is on sale), but you receive a catalina for $ oyno.  See details below:
Buy 4 save $1.00
Buy 6 save $1.50
Buy 8 save $2.00
Buy 10 save $2.50
Buy 20 save $5.00
Buy 40, save $10.00

The prices below are an estimate - every FL is different in pricing. Here is a list of things to be on the lookout for:
FL Gum .39 ea (located at the registers)
FL Yogurt, around .37-.44 ea
FL Boxed jello, around .33 ea
FL canned veges are on sale for .69 ea
Home 360 Rubber Bands, Erasers, Pencil Sharpeners, 33¢
Home 360 Kids Scissors 99¢
Home 360 Transparent Tape 59¢
Home 360 Aluminum Foil 25 Sqft $1.35
Home 360 Single Wet One Packs 89¢
Home 360 Fabric Softener Sheets 40ct $1.69

Okay, I'm going out on a limb here telling you about this.  Please don't take this information as a personal recommendation from me, but I got a kick out of the following that was in the sales flyer:
Silver Classic Beef Ribeye or New York Strip Steaks $3.99 lb, sold in a 2 lb. box.  Really......steak that comes in a box?  I shouldn't knock it before I see it but - Really!?!?!  Has anyone tried this?  Leave a post if you have.  I will report back after I see it - IF I can see through the box......hum.....
That's all for Food Lion this week - no interesting FLIPS.

As you know it's super double time, so I will only highlight the best items that are not associated with SDs.

La Brea Baguettes are bogo at $1.49, which is a decent price.  However, look to see if any are "day old" and have the $1.00 off yellow sticker.  I would pay $1.49 if I were having a nice pasta meal and needed a nice baguette to impress my guests, but for "day old", you could make mini pizzas by slathering them with pasta sauce, a pepperoni and layering the top with cheese.  Now that's a great snack for .49!!

Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (meat dept.) is buy 1 get 2 packs free, which ends up being about $1.66/lb.  This is not a bad price at all.

Fresh Maine Blue Mussels are $3.99.  Take a look at this pic.  Make you want to cook it - huh??

Gwaltney Bacon is 1.97 per pack

Lowes Foods has published their 3 week coupons again, which are in the sales flyer. Make sure you hang on to the ad - sometimes the stores don't have them and if you don't have the q with you, your out of luck.  Here are a couple of the better deals:

French's Mustard 0.99, use the .50 IP from here:

Keebler 100 Calorie Right Bites 1.49 (there is supposed to be a $1 q in Sunday's RP - I hope our region gets it!) .49 for a lunchbox snack is great!! The q that came out in Sunday's paper was for .75 - Even better!!  Free Snacks!!  Make sure you give the cashier the mfg q first, then have them scan the LF q.

Regular Sale Items:

Sanderson Farms Split bone-in chicken breast (sold in a "value" pack) is .79.  This is a stockpile price. 

Yoplait Fiber One or Yo Plus multi-pack is $1.50, use $1 q from, Link:

Have a great week!!
