Wegmans Freezes Prices on Some Products

Wegmans annouced yesterday that is will freeze prices on 40 staple products through 2011.  You can check out Wegmans site to get a complete listing of products that vows to freeze

I was disappointed to see that all of the products appear to be Wegmans brand products.  Any experienced coupon shopper can tell you that by using coupons you can regularly get name brand items cheaper than any store brand including Wegmans brand.  On a positive note, these prices will be something to keep in mind for that rare occasion that you just don't have a coupon!


CVS Deals - Purex Out of Stock Frustration!


Stopped at my two closest CVS stores today to take advantage of these Purex deals.  (The Monroe Ave store and the South Clinton store for anyone wondering.)

Purex Ultra Concentrate 24 to 32 loads - $3.99

$1.00 coupon RP 2/20/11

Final Price:  $.99

Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets 20ct - $3.99

$3.00 coupon  RP 2/20/11

Final Price:  $.99

Unfortunately, both stores were completely out of stock!  While this is annoying I was able to pick up rain checks at both stores and I have a few weeks until the coupons expire.  Also don't forget, CVS rainchecks never expire so you could even use them when the next set of coupons come out!  Don't let a deal pass you by -- get a raincheck (and then don't forget to use them!  Ha!)

Coupon of the Day - Miracle Whip

$.75 coupon - Miracle Whip (30 oz) - (coupons.com) on page 1, in zip 14610

I love $.75 coupons more than $1.00 off coupons!  Why, you ask?  That's because two of Rochester's local grocery stores, Wegmans and Tops, both double coupons up to $.99.  What does that mean for us?  That means that your lowly $.75 coupon is actually worth $1.50!  Grab em, print em, use em before they're gone!

The Great Pumpkin Experiment

The Great Pumpkin Experiment


I really like the idea of using fresh home-grown food as much as possible to feed my family.  Often, it’s not only healthier; it can often save you money.


If you read my last post, I bought a sugar pumpkin last Saturday at the Rochester Public Market.  I decided to go ahead and make my own pumpkin puree for use in all kinds of tasty fall treats. 


With this whole experiment, I really want to answer one question.  Is it worth the effort? 


Here’s what I did:


  • Step 1:  Cut the pumpkin in half – bottom to stem.
  • Step 2:  Scoop of the insides.  Took me a little longer because I saved the pumpkin seeds to roast later.
  • Step 3:  Cut each half of the pumpkin in half again.

  • Step 4:  Place the halves in a roasting pan with a little bit of water in the bottom.  Bake for about an hour or until you can insert a fork easily.
  • Step 5:  Scoop out the pulp of the pumpkin from the skin and place it in a food processor.  Process until smooth.

I’d say the whole process took me about 30 minutes of prep time and an hour and ten minutes of cook time.  My little sugar pumpkin made the equivalent of about 2 – 29 oz cans of pure pumpkin.  Wegmans sells each can for $2.49 and my pumpkin cost me $1.50 which adds up to a savings of $3.48.


In addition, I used my pumpkin seeds to make Roasted Spiced Pumpkin Seeds and got a nice healthy snack for the whole family.  I didn’t weigh my seeds, but at Wegmans’ price of $4.49/lb.  My seeds were a bargain!


Not too shabby!  I’d have to say if you have the time, it’s totally worth it!
