This post is a tip-off to some of the best deals in Denver’s Wednesday ads this week. They are biased by my personal preferences, but may they inspire you to a bargain-hunting frenzy.
This Wednesday’s Denver Post had a coupon insert for an $8.99 haircut at Great Clips. Fabu if you have the kind of fashionista who takes care of business at that salon chain … and the coupon saves you 41%.
Grocery inserts had a few super bargains.
Sunflower Markets is selling:
- organic eggplants for $0.88 each. (A normally good sale on conventional eggplant at the big chains is $1 each.)
- organic peaches for $1.49/lb.
- imported Italian dried pasta for $0.59/lb. (It’s Luigi Vitelli brand – sure, it sounds Italian. I’ve never tried it but I’ll by some if I make it to Sunflower).
- As always, their coffee is $5.99 a pound. If I go, I’m going to see if they have anything that combines two or more of the golden traits: organic, shade grown, fair trade.
- And a confusing image labels broccoli and cauliflower at $0.88 … per pound and each, respectively? Whatever, either way it’s a good deal. I love some cauliflower in my green curry.
I don’t usually get this flier in our paper, and I was excited to see it.
King Soopers has:
- organic strawberries for $2.50 a pound. Run, don’t walk – these usually sell out at our store. Strawberries are great to buy organic as they nearly always make the “dirty dozen” list of foods most contaminated with pesticides.
- Lean Pockets and Hot Pockets for $1.77 per package of 2 (these are overpackaged and overprocessed … but sometimes I just don’t eat otherwise).
- Daisy Sour Cream at $1.50 for 16 oz., a great deal if you have their recent $0.40 coupon (with doubling, you’ll pay $0.70). Mr. Cheap and especially Little Cheap love the white fluffy stuff.
- Store-brand Naturally Preferred cage-free eggs are $2 a dozen ($0.16 per egg), which compares favorably to Costco’s $0.18-an-egg Nest Fresh price.
- And Jolly Time microwave popcorn is $1 a box — and I know I have some coupons for that, too. Movie night!
These deals run through Tuesday at King Soopers, Wednesday at Sunflower, and I think early July at Great Clips (Mr. Cheap already used the coupon).
