Singing The Praises of Fresh & Easy

Have you tried shopping at Fresh & Easy lately? I go somewhat infrequently as it is a little out of the way from my home, but made a special trip today because being part of their email club, they had sent me a $10 off $50 purchase coupon. That's a savings of 20% right there! I found the produce to be excellently priced, and my husband found a favorite beverage at a very favorable price. Large pumpkins, perfect for the fall holidays were only $2.50 each and Halloween candy was 50% off. I was very happy with my findings, and even happier with the hefty savings. Another great thing about the store is that for every $20 you spend with them, $1 goes back to local schools! That is a fantastic program right there. For more information on Fresh & Easy, the school program, or to join their email list, go to

CVS ExtraCare Card

If you shop at CVS and have an ExtraCare card, are you remembering to scan it at the kiosk when you enter the store? I have to admit that I was an infrequent shopper, and when I did go to the store, I would give them my card at checkout, but would forget to scan it when I ENTERED the store. BIG mistake! Now that I have discovered all the deals available there and I am shopping more frequently, I am also remembering to scan in. Yesterday I took my "Save $5 off $30 purchase" that they emailed me for being a part of their email club, and when I scanned my card at the kiosk, they gave me (amongst others) a $5 off any Halloween items purchase. That did NOT come with spending requirement- so in other words, I got to pick out pumpkins and Halloween items to the tune of $5 with no cost to me! That was a really nice surprise!
