UPDATE: To make it easier to find this post with the links to the grocery store sales ads, I’ve placed a graphic link on my sidebar (see the example below) so you can click on it and come directly to this post, rather than having to scroll through multiple posts to find it.
For the past four years, I’ve been doing the best weekly grocery deals on my site. And every week, it takes 6-10 hours to put the grocery deals list together. There has only been a handful of times that I haven’t posted the grocery deals list over the past four years. This site has been a hobby for me. I make very little money from my website, and with the little money I do make, it goes back in to keeping the website running. I’ve been doing this grocery deals list because I know it helps many of you save money on your grocery budget.
However, one of my goals this year is to simplify because during this past year, I’ve felt spread too thin. I’ve been trying to be the best mom, wife and blogger, keep my house clean, prepare healthy meals for my family, and serve in my church calling. But I just can’t do it all, and I’ve decided that I have to let go of some things and simplify areas in my life.
I know this will be a HUGE disappointment to many of you and I appreciate all of you who let me know that you LOVE the grocery deals list, but I’ve decided that. . .
I will no longer be posting the weekly grocery deals on my site.
There will be times when I want to share some awesome grocery deals with you, so be sure to click here to subscribe to my email list because I will email you if there are deals I think you should know about.
Now, this doesn’t mean that I am going away. I am still planning to post money-saving tips and frugal ideas on my website. I have already prepared some quality posts that I’ll be sharing with you each week. I really hope that you’ll continue to visit my site. Be sure to sign up for my email list here, so you don’t miss any of these posts.
Since I don’t want to leave you completely hanging, I’m providing you with the tools needed below to find these amazing grocery deals each week.
DEALS TO MEALS
If you are REALLY disappointed with this announcement that I’m not longer doing the grocery deals list, I recommend you try out Deals to Meals, a site that helps people all over the country save money on groceries and save time planning and preparing for meals. If you want to try out Deals to Meals, you can sign up for a FREE 2-week trial here, then after that it’s only $4.95 a month. That’s just a little more than $1 a week, which is a great deal, especially with how much time and hundreds of dollars it will save you. Paying for Deals to Meals to do the work for you will really save you hours of your time each week. And your time is valuable, so you might want to seriously look into paying for this service.
Look through all of the weekly ads. If you don’t have much time, just glance at the first and last page of the weekly ads. That’s where they usually place the best deals. Here are the links to the weekly ads.
- Walgreen’s weekly ad runs Sun. through Sat.
- Target’s weekly ad runs Sun. through Sat.
- Macey’s weekly ad runs Mon. through Mon. (except in Tooele where the ad runs Wed. through Wed.)
- Rancho Market’s weekly ad runs Mon. through Sun.
- Ream’s weekly ad runs Tues. through Mon.
- Ridley’s weekly ad runs Tues. through Mon.
- Sprout’s weekly ad runs Wed. through Wed.
- Albertsons’ weekly ad runs Wed. through Tues.
- Fresh Market’s weekly ad runs Wed. through Tues.
- Smith’s weekly ad runs Wed. through Tues.
- Harmon’s weekly ad runs Thurs. through Wed.
GROCERYSMARTS & COUPONS
Also look at GrocerySmarts to make sure you don’t miss any really good deals. Plus, GrocerySmarts will show you which coupons to use with the sale to get the best deal. However, GrocerySmarts doesn’t have all of the stores listed that I’ve shown on my weekly grocery deals list, so you’ll want to check the weekly ads I listed above.
Here are the coupon sites I use to find coupons to go along with sales:
For those of you who want a Sunday newspaper so you can get the coupons that come with it, you can get a Sunday newspaper subscription for the Deseret News or Salt Lake Tribune for just $20 for one year (52 weeks)! That comes out to be only $0.38 per paper! This is such an awesome deal!
I can’t stress enough how important meal planning is to help you save money on groceries and to also take a shopping list with you and stick with the shopping list. For those of you who struggle to meal plan before you grocery shop or for you busy moms, the Six Sisters’ Stuff Menu Plan will help you out with dinner each night and save you money because you’ll have a plan of what you need to purchase before you go grocery shopping.
Six Sisters’ Stuff has three different menu plans to choose from:
- Menu Plan Membership – Serves 6-8
- Smaller Family Menu Plan – Serves 2-4
- Gluten-Free Menu Plan – Serves 4-6
With all three of the menu plan options, you’ll receive a week’s worth of meals at a glance, which includes 6 main dish recipes, 2 side dish recipes and 2 dessert recipes. And in addition to getting a menu plan, you’ll also receive a detailed shopping list of what to buy each week. Use my Best Weekly Grocery Deals list to know if any ingredients from your shopping list are on sale that week.
A whole year of menu plans from Six Sisters’ Stuff is just $36. That turns out to be only $3.00 per month! If you would rather, you could choose the monthly payment option of $5.00 a month. Six Sisters’ Stuff has so many family-friendly meals, that the $36 for the year will be worth it. Head over here to get more details or to sign up. Planning out your meals and shopping the sales will save you hundreds of dollars on your groceries each month!

I think this totally makes sense! You still have such a valuable website. I totally understand. I’m slowing down too for awhile.

Thanks! I still want to post quality content, but I knew I needed to simplify what I’m doing.
