Good Deals at Piggly Wiggly

I doubt that many of you have a Piggly Wiggly near you. LOL. There are 4 within my shopping area, believe it or not!!!

Usually the prices aren't that good, but I thought these items I purchased yesterday were pretty good.

1. 12 pack Scott Extra Soft Toilet Tissue on sale for $5.99. There were $1.00 coupons for these in last Sunday's paper. I purchased two. I know a lot of people don't like Scott Toilet Tissue, but its absolutely the best value in my book. The rolls last a long time and now they have the "extra soft" kind. ONLY buy it when its on sale. In my area the 12 packs go on sale for $6.49 regularly at Food Lion, CVS, Walgreens, etc. and there are usually some $1.00 coupons in the paper. So the Piggly Wiggly sale for $5.99 was even better. I always try to have two or three twelve packs in my stash.

2. Piggly Wiggly Brand and Lucks Brand canned beans, 10 for $4.00. We use a lot of these to make chili. We make chili year round, but especially now that the Fall and Winter season are coming up. I also noticed that Lucks had a low fat version that was included in the sale. I purchase 10 cans of a combination of Pinto Beans, Great Northern Beans, Navy Beans and Hot Chili Beans. I probably should stop back by and get another 10 to really have the pantry stocked up!

3. VO5 shampoo for 49 cents. I know this is one of the cheapest shampoos, but my boys/men go through shampoo pretty fast. Sometimes I think they are using it for soap, so I give them a variety of shampoos. They have some nicer shampoos and some cheaper shampooos in the shower to choose from. I bought 3 bottles of non-feminine ones to have in my pantry. I already had a couple of bottles, since it goes on sale for 77 cents at drug stores. I've never seen it for 49 cents before.

I have learned to scan all the sales papers because even the stores you don't think have good prices will occasionally surprise you!

Hi Debbie,
I also use that toilet paper and VO5 shampoo...I too buy them on sale, but your prices were even better! Too bad they do not have a Piggly Wiggly in NJ!
God Bless, Janel

Those are great deals! We don't have Piggly Wiggly up north. Too bad. I use Scott toilet tissue as well but I've never found it that cheap.

We have a Piggly Wiggly in R.M., but I"ve not been to it yet. Maybe I'll get a chance to do so this weekend. About the toilet paper, I recently bought the extra soft SCOTT tissue, because of you, and I really do like it. And yes, it does last longer!

We no longer have a Piggly Wiggly where I live but we use to years and years ago when I was a little girl.

I also like the Scott Exta Soft, it does last forever.

Sounds like you got some good buys on things for your pantry. We don't have a Piggly Wiggly where I live but I have shopped in some in Fl.

It's great when you can save money on food and such.

I selected you for an award. Come to my site for the particulars.

Hugs,
Dianne
