RaNdOm grocery thoughts for this week

i've had some great shopping trips since wednesday and have almost everything for DS's high school graduation cookout on june 12.
very happy about that!
here are some random things that are swirling in my head:

food lion:
the kraft salad dressing deal is great even with no coupons.
i have done multiple transactions buying 4 salad dressings at $1.66 each and another item from the $5/5 kraft deal. (see jenny's list here of what else is included)
there is, however, a tearpad (i got mine at the davidson HT) for $1 off produce wyb 2 kraft dressings.
so today i got a free red onion and bananas with my dressing deal.
i have been rolling my $3 catalina and spending very little out of pocket.
i think i will end up getting some kraft mayo sometime this week.
it's on sale for $2.50 and part of the deal.
so would end up being $1.50 for the big jar of mayo.
gonna need that for pasta and potato salads this summer.

oh that reminds me.
there is a tearpad at food lion near the potatoes that gets you some free maries potato salad dressing (located in the first part of the produce section) when you buy a bag of red or yukon gold potatoes.
red potatoes are on sale for $2.99 for 5 lb.

did i tell you about the food lion shrimp that is bogo this week?
i get the EZ peel jumbo for $4.99 and make this wonderful spicy shrimp from the pioneer woman's website.
it really is easy to peel.
and you don't have to use that much butter.
but you can :)

scott paper towels are on sale $4.77 for an 8 pack.
i have gotten 3 $1.50/1 scott towels coupon from the coupon scanner kiosk thing.
makes for cheap paper towels!
$3.27 for 8 rolls.

i also got a $1/1 kraft cheese (which is part of the 5/5 deal) from the kiosk.
try your luck! and i always look through the ones others have discarded.

harris teeter:
along with the great solo paper plates/cups deal, vanity fair plates are also on sale for $2.
the are the absolute nicest sturdiest plates on the market.
use the 50¢/1 from the 3/14 RP to get them for a dollar.

nestle coffee mate creamer is on sale for $1.66 until 6/8 i believe.
use the 50¢/1 from the 5/2 SS.
final price 66¢

VO5 shampoo is on sale for 69¢ this week.
don't know how good it is, but we are almost out!
it smelled good.

and don't forget to pick up the tearpad coupon for the produce when you buy 2 kraft dressings (to use at food lion).
