    The manager at my Ukrop’s said that Friday’s sale is going to be crazy! She said the some sales are the hottest she’s seen in 10 years. She wouldn’t spill all the details, and told me to wait until the ad, but did tease that 2 liters will be only .50!

  2. Cool, thanks! Looks like the ad will be released Thursday around 5pm, so I might have to add a few highlights

  3. FIFTY CENTS? I could by a bazillion of them with just the change from the jar in our laundry room.

    I got the list! They’re handing it out at the store.

    Pepsi 2 liters 2/$1
    Food Club Mac & Cheese 4/$1 (I will MAKE my kid like this better than Kraft for that price!)
    Campbell’s Pork & Beans 4/$1
    Food Club Bread 2/$1
    Turkey Hill Lemonade or Tea 64 oz .88
    Food Club Cheese Slices 3/$2
    Pet Ice Cream Sandwiches .88 (makes me wish I had a big freezer)
    Corn .10/ear
    Oscar Meyer Meat Franks 5/$5
    Holten Frozen Beef Patties 32 oz $3.98
    Ukrop’s Chocolate Fudge Pie $4.99

    Some Ukrop’s tips from a frequent shopper: You don’t have to buy the whole amount to get the good price. For example, you don’t have to buy 4 Mac and Cheeses for $1, they’ll ring up at .25/ea.
    Use the Spot machine! It’s a big orange machine at the front that prints out coupons. They say that they are supposed to be geared to stuff you buy, and some of them certainly are not for me, but a lot of them are. Like we enjoy stuff from the bakery and there is almost always a coupon for something we;ve bought in the past.
    You can also use your UVC card at the Deli kiosk to order your deli stuff to pick up without standing in line, and it remembers what your “favorites” are.
    The One-Day Deals are great (I work right near a Ukrop’s and it’s easy to duck in to take advantage.) Mondays: 50% off ground beef, Tuesdays: Bananas .29/lb, Wednesdays: double coupons, Thursdays: Eggs .99, Fridays: Bread 2/$1, Saturdays: Milk $2.49/gall.
