WINCO Strawberries and Using Coupons that Are about to EXPIRE.

I was downtown for my doctors appointment today, so I stopped in at Winco. My friend Amanda told me they were having their annual Strawberry Truckload Sale.

You can get a 4 pound pack of DELISH AND MASSIVE Strawberries for only $2.98!!
You only get that price on the first pack
.

While I was there I noticed many items on "sale" that I could get for WAY less at Albies right now - because a promo, coupled with coupons AND doulbers makes for a stink load of money saved! I found myself cringing when people put some of these items in their cart!

I DID however, use a few coupons that will be expiring next Wednesday that I wanted to use.

I picked up a pack of Yo Plus (reg price $2.04) and saved a dollar with my IP. I also grabbed 2 California Kitchen Pizza's. These were the 12" variety that are NOT part of the promotion at Albies this week. They ARE on sale at Albies for $6.99 (I don't consider THAT a sale!), so I got two boxes at Winco for $4.78 each. And I used two $1/1 printables that I got from coupons.com a few weeks ago.

ANYWAY - my point is:
FABULESS Strawberries at Winco right now

also

IF you have coupons that are about to expire,
and
YOU NEED or COULD USE the item that you have a coupon for,
and
there isn't an AMAZING deal going on,
then
I break down and head to Winco or Walmart to purchase the item.

I just got home from Winco where I found the same AMAZING strawberry deal and was planning to let you know.....I should have known you'd already be all over that deal!

Yeah for yummy (cheap) strawberries!
