Check Your Cub Foods Receipts

It Pays To Ask

A reader sent in a great story about how you can save money just by asking!

"We went to Walmart last night to do some grocery shopping. I told my husband we were getting milk at Aldi because it is cheaper there. An employee overheard me and asked me how much milk was at Aldi. (Walmart is $3.25 for a gallon of Great Value 2%, Aldi is $2.69. She went and talked to the manager of the dairy department and he said he would match Aldi's price. I was really surprised! I asked him if he would price match ice cream (Walmart Great Value brand is$2.50, Aldi is $1.69) and he said I would have to talk to the frozen foods manager but he didn't see why they wouldn't match the price. They would rather have us spend our money there than go to a competitor's store!"

Frugal Storage Solutions


Thanks to my husband, I now have some great new storage! One of the problems with couponing is "Where do we put it all?"

(Let me just stop and say we do not make a practice of stockpiling. We do stock up on items that are free or close to free, especially if it is something we use on a regular basis or could take the place of something else we would normally have to buy.)

Our kitchen does not have a pantry and there is not room to build any type of storage. But we do have an unfinished basement closet and leftover drywall from finishing another room in the house. My husband quickly and creatively put this arrangement together for me this afternoon. What a blessing! You are the greatest, honey!

Forever Stamps

Thanks to Free 2 Be Frugal for reminding me that the .41 stamp will be history on May 12th. The new stamps will cost .42.

You can purchase Forever Stamps for .41 (the current price) and you will be able to use them no matter how much postage goes up. Thus the name "forever" stamps. Click here for details.
