I don’t usually make my own bread, but I don’t like to pay a lot of money for it, either. One of my favorite stores to go to is the bread store. If you’ve never been to one, you are missing out! Their prices are significantly cheaper than at the grocery store, and I LOVE the clearance shelf – items that are about to hit their stale date and must sell! I usually visit the bread store once every 4-6 weeks and buy 6 loaves of bread at a time (they freeze well). On a recent shopping trip, I decided to price compare and this is what I found:

Hostess/Wonder Bread Store (400 S. 700 E.)
English muffins – 2 for $2
Box of Mini Donuts – 2 for $3.89
Bagels – 2 for $3.89
Hamburger and Hotdog buns – 2 for $2.04
Sourdough bread – $1.89
Standish Farms Wheat Bread – 3 for $4.79
Natural Pride bread – $1.89
Grandma Emilie bread – 3 for $5.00
Homepride bread – 4 for $5.52
Clearance snack cakes – .25

English muffins – on sale 2 for $3.00, normally $2.99
Twinkies – $3.99 Bagels – on sale 2 for $4.00
Hamburger and Hotdog buns – $2.79
Grandma Emilie bread – 2 for $4.00
Home Pride bread – $3.29
Snack cakes (donettes) – $1.39

Everything is $1 at Dollar Tree.  $1 for Wii accessories is pretty good deal.   Dollar Tree in Spanish Fork also pretty long plastic baseball bats with a ball for a dollar, and some other great kids toys for $1.  I was there getting stuff for my daughter’s 3 year old birthday party next week and found so many great deals.

They have a whole row of Luau party accessories so I am doing a Luau theme for her party. Only $12 for all her Lei’s for all her friends, balloons, tons of banners and decorations, and matching Luau plates.   They were sold out of $1 hula hoops, so I’ll be back next week for those.  But overall, it should be a cheap fun party!

Both at Macey’s: Pompeian 100% Olive Oil 32 Oz is marked down to $7.99, reg. $13.99.   On the 17 oz. bottles of Pompeian Olive Oil there are coupons for $1/1 ANY Pompeian Olive Oil.  Take those coupons and use them on the already 50% off 32 oz. Olive Oil to get $6.99 for 32 oz.  Pretty great deal!  I got two, but now am wondering if I should have got 3.   I haven’t run across many great deals on 100% Olive Oil before, and my husband loves to cook with it. What do you guys think?

I use much cheaper vegetable oil for baking, but olive oil for stove-top cooking and salads. My husband loves it.

Remember when I posted here about the hot sale on Swag Bucks for $5 transferred to your pay pal account for only 550 swags (normally 900).  And I was kinda ranting about my Pay Pal account being in a different email address then my Swag Bucks account, so I didn’t know if I’d get the money? Well check your emails if you did this deal, because I just got alerted that I got my $ and I checked Pay Pal and the $15 is there (I did this deal 3 times).  Sweet! Lovin’ Swag Bucks now.

Today’s Groupon deal here is for Trafalga Fun Center: $8 for Three Activities (mini-golfing, go-carting, and more) and Four Arcade Tokens at Trafalga Fun Center ($16 Value).  This would be great for a cheap date night or night out with the kids.  This price is today only,  but if you get the tickets they don’t expire until 10/1/10.

I have talked about Groupon before, basically they get a deeply discounted rate and only if the amount of people that they need sign up for the deal do you get charged.

For $49 you get:

an on-location 30 minute photo shoot
2 Digital Files
& 10% off prints

It expires in a year.  Limit 6 people, not valid for newborn sessions.
$35 charge for having the shoot south of Provo or North of Alpine.

This is a deal hosted by Groupon.  Looks like they need 5 more buyers for the deal to go through.  The deal ends at midnight, and if enough people don’t buy it you don’t get charged.  When it does go through (it usually does) they will send you a link to sign in and print.  So no shipping fee!  For more details on Groupon go here.

Search & Win
Today is MEGA Swagbucks Day at!

Question: remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about the discount they were having on PayPal gift cards, I think it was 50% off? I ordered $15 worth and haven’t gotten ANY money in my PayPal account.  It did say it could take awhile, so I was just curious if anyone had done this deal if they got there money yet?

You can win $1, $2, $3, $5, $1o, $20, $50, $100, or even $500 Swagbucks just for searching the internet!

Mega swagbucks is only on Friday but you can still win $1 to $5 Swagbucks any other day!
