If you’ve ever thought about ordering groceries online, now may be the time to try it. No having to set your alarm to get in early or try to figure out when various aisles are restocked. True, you can’t pick and choose that specific batch of bananas or scan boxes of cereal for the latest expire date. On the otherhand, you let someone else do the heavy lifting, while you stay home. But people who have never ordered food online may be confused by the options. [Read more…] about How To Order Groceries Online – Compare Your Options
Want to help a neighbor who can’t get out to buy much-needed groceries? Need someone to pickup groceries for you? Walmart and Nextdoor have teamed up to create “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” program, an effort to make it easier for neighbors across the country to help one another. While we’ve seen this sort of thing already in practice informally, the new partnership makes it easier to coordinate.

With extra time on your hands, you may want to take on the task of cleaning and organizing your pantry and refrigerator. There’s a good chance you’re buying food you probably already have in your kitchen (especially if it’s unorganized) — just hidden in the back or under other products. On the other side, you may have “expiration police” in your household. Those who refuse to consume anything expired and are quick to toss anything “old” in the garbage. They’re always the ones searching for an expiration date on every package. [Read more…] about Expires On, Sell By and Best Before…What Does It All Mean?
Colorado rancher Rex Moore of Rock River Bison typically sells his bison meat to restaurants. Having lost 80% of his business last week, he is turning to direct consumer sales. He has lots of bison meat in his coolers and warehouse and would like to sell to you. As Moore tells MHOTC, “Yes, I am real. The plea for help is real. Yes, I am selling bison meat direct to the consumer. Yes, Craigslist took down my ad since it was getting so much traffic.” [Read more…] about Colorado Rancher Selling Bison Meat Direct To Consumers
We love Colorado. After all, our very wise government officials included certain–ahem–stores on the “essential services” list. And, we are totally on board with you heading to the grocery store as little as possible, and waiting until you have a list of things to buy, rather than heading there for one or two items. But maybe you’re out of wine. [Read more…] about 4 Ways To Get Wine Delivered To Your Door, Including Local Wine Shops That Deliver
It pays to stop and smell the roses. Roses are such a lovely way to celebrate just about any occasion from birthdays to anniversaries. It’s even sweeter, when the roses are unexpected by the recipient just because you’re thinking of them. However, bargain hunters know roses can be an expensive gift.

Much to the dismay of many bargain hunters, King Soopers changed its popular FREE Friday Download last year. The weekly offer seemed to just disappear and, then, randomly show up with no consistency or schedule. It was frustrating for many who counted on the weekly freebie. The ride was good while it lasted, with so many grocery items at no cost. For value-conscious shoppers, it doesn’t get much better than FREE. [Read more…] about King Soopers: Free Friday Download Update
This is the fourth week without a FREE Friday Download, so we put our bargain-hunting team to the task of finding an answer. There has been one question on the mind of many of our bargain-loving readers. We’ve heard from readers via e-mails, texts, phone calls and, even, carrier pigeons. (Okay, we’re exaggerating…but just a bit!)
The one question everyone is asking: What is going on with King Soopers’ Free Friday Download offer? [Read more…] about King Soopers Changes Free Friday Download…Again

We’ve had many debates with fellow bargain hunters about where to find the best grocery deals in town. For many, Safeway is at the top of the list. To be fair, we know many readers consider Safeway to be “too expensive.” However, we have found lots of savings at Safeway (especially since being acquired by Albertsons), so we’ve created a guide for navigating its aisles for the best deals and discounts. We have decades of experience as both Safeway customers and bargain hunters, so, hopefully, we can offer some “valuable” insight. (We’ve even been known to save upwards of 75% on our grocery bill.)

Fans of baked goods, run don’t walk to your nearest Entenmann’s Oroweat Bakery Outlet. (There are five locations in the Denver metro area under the name Mrs. Baird’s, Oroweat or Entenmann’s.) Owned by Bimbo, the stores sell Oroweat, Entenmann’s, Sara Lee, Boboli, Thomas English products and more. Mile High Cheapskates also report finding a variety of gravy & soup mixes, biscuit & cornbread mix, flavored pancake syrups, coffee, tortilla chips, fruit roll-ups, jams, jellies and more.
Most days, you’ll find a BOGO deal. Everything is sold below retail prices and nothing is more than three days old. (After three days, the goods are donated to local food banks.) Fresh items are marked down 20% and day-old items even more. [Read more…] about Get Some Extra Dough at Entenmann’s Bakery Outlets
Okay, this isn’t exactly breaking news. The policy changed on April 30 this year. I just can’t believe it missed my radar! King Soopers no longer gives customers an item for FREE, when it scans incorrectly. As of now, the grocery store’s Scan Accuracy Guarantee states that they will simply give you the lower price. This is definitely bad news for eagle-eyed bargain hunters and receipt checkers, like me. (It was always a welcome surprise to get an item for free.) For me, it happens more often than you’d think and not just at King Soopers. I see price discrepancies all the time at most stores. It’s just that most people don’t review their receipt. The policy change should not discourage you from taking a quick glance at your receipt. Keep checking to ensure you’re charged correctly. For savers, every penny counts!

Any chance you get to give kids a healthy snack is a good thing. To this end, Safeway is helping parents promote healthy eating. The next time you shop, stop by the produce department or customer service and ask for the necessary promo “club card.” (Families with lots of kids can get multiple cards, so each child has their very own. Every parent knows sharing with siblings can be tricky!) Then, every time the kids tag along on a shopping trip, they just flash their “club card” and get a banana or gala apple for FREE. (From our sources, the fruitful offer is open to kids 12 and under.) For finding the best deals at Safeway, review our Safeway Shopping Guide.
Thanks to our friends at Super Safeway for sharing this deal. They’re also a great source for finding bargains at Safeway!
