Mark downs and clearance items

Post by Mrs Rooster on Tue Apr 14, 2015 6:26 am

I scored some fruit at Kroger's. I picked up bags of fruit that were clearance for 99 cents a bag. I always look on the clearance shelf. Milk was marked 1.49 a gallon. You have to use it up in a few days, but we have never had a problem. We even got a bag of frozen scallops for 3.00.

Target is a good place for this also.

Still love Aldi's. You can find mark down and clearance there too.

Good deals! I too check the clearance section every time I shop. I got whole milk for $1.12 a gallon tonight at Meijer and even got $.50 off one gallon with Mperks and it doesn't expire until 4/18/15 and Easter M&Ms for $1.19 a bag.

If you all find deals on milk remember that milk freezes well. We used to get several gallons at a time on sale and freeze them then we would take them out one at a time when the "in use" gallon was about half empty. By the time that gallon was empty the frozen gallon was thawed and ready to go.

I've got to make room in the freezer to get a gallon or two in there, I bought 4 gallons at that price. The best part of my trip was the $7 reward credit I had, so 4 gallons of milk and 4 bags of M&Ms (11.4oz) cost me $1.83 out of pocket. Very Happy

My family refuses to drink and/or use frozen milk, so I've only been buying what I need. And I've never seen it marked down.

I did find steak marked down to 50 cents once years ago. That made a nice dinner!

We used to find a whole lot more markdowns than we used to. The small independent grocery that used to be here used to always mark all of their dairy 1/2 price or even more on the final sell by date. Then they got bought out by a chain and that ended.

I would just keep on buying and using that frozen milk. If my family refused to drink and use it then they could just drink something else and more for me. After living with my picky, "I don't like THAT" sister for so many years, I refuse to cater to pickiness for no good reason. I can be understanding if you truly don't like a certain food, but nit picking something that is perfectly fine just because it doesn't suit you I don't tolerate.

Eventually, I'll go back to buying a whole gallon and freezing it, but for now, it's more bother than it's worth. I need to find something better to freeze it in than the smaller sized milk bottles. They can be very difficult to get clean at times.

I was in Wally World today and they had Easter candy on clearance. I got 8 bags that normally sell for $2.88 for 28 cents each!

I could have gotten more, but decided against it.

Thank you for the freezing idea with the milk. My Rooster reminds me milk does expand and it could break the container. But this is a great idea because we often find 1/2 half gallons for like 59 or 49 cents. If we pour out a bit of it then freeze it, it should be ok.

I am not picky about 2%, skim or whatever. I go for price.

We got two packs of stir fry meat for 2.49 each pack. We made soft tacos with one and froze the other.

Scored a great deal on boneless chicken breasts yesterday--$1.69 a pound! Haven't seen it that cheap for a very long time.

If you buy it in the plastic jugs they all have a round indent in the side of the carton, usually with a logo of some kind printed on it.  This indent is there for the purpose of expansion in case any gallons should freeze during shipment.  So, no need to change jugs on those.  When the milk freezes the indents pop out and when it thaws they pop back.

I learned about freezing milk from my BIL.  He used to work at a major grocery store chain when he was young and said that milk often froze when it was being shipped.
