Good Deal Alerts a la Meijer

Chicken Leg Quarters ... 79c/lb, not amazingly awesome, but still pretty darn good if you're in need. We turn Chicken Leg Quarters into a million things. We BBQ them on the grill. We roast them in the oven. We pick the bones and make soup, quesadillas, chicken casseroles, chicken fried rice, and on and on. Leg Quarters are amazingly versatile.

Frozen Tilapia Filets ... Buy 2, Get 2 FREE! There is also a coupon on the Mealbox site that can be used, making them super cost effective. Buy a bunch, throw them in the freezer and you can have basically fresh fish anytime. The filets are flash frozen so they defrost really quickly and grill fabulously. Contemplate some marinades, throw on a pot of rice, and it's dinner in no time.

Nabisco Chips Ahoy! Cookies ... 2/$5. This isn't the most amazing price. When you buy two, though, you get a FREE 1/2 gallon on Meijer brand ice cream. Pair that with the $1/1 Any Nabisco tearpad coupons if you have them and it's $3 for 2 packages of cookies and a 1/2 gallon of ice cream. Good enough for me!

Family Size Salty Snacks ... 2/$5. Again, not the best price, though not awful since the bags are practically big enough to feed an army. There are coupons on Mealbox that net you $1 off each one for a final price of 2/$3. Now, that's pretty sweet. We actually tried these for the first time yesterday (I bought them last week in preparation for yesterday's pot luck), and they're pretty fabulous. We tried the white corn tortillas and the yellow corn scoops (like Fritos). Both were equally as wonderful as name brands, I'm happy to report. I even heard a few times that the scoops were better than the name brand. Yay!

Meijer Specialty Cut Pasta ... 3/$2. Pair this with the Mealbox coupon for 50c/1 and you're looking at 17c pasta. It's not free like last week's spaghetti, but still pretty darn smokin' good if you ask me.

Kraft Salad Dressing/Mayo/Miracle Whip Catalina ... I haven't done the scenarios, but I think there's some potential here if you have the right coupons. I haven't gone through mine for possibilities yet so I'm not much help, but check it out for sure.

There's word that the Meijer brand olive oil (8oz) can be had with the Mealbox coupon for $1. I haven't tried it yet, but I'll update if I do.

Have a great week scoring deals!




  1. You have inspired me to attempt eating at home more often. It's just harder to cook for one! :-)

  2. I totally agree that it's harder for just one, but I'm glad you're taking on the endeavor.

    Random Single Person Eating Tip ....
    Things like chicken breast and fish filets scored on sale can be flash frozen on a cookie sheet, then bagged up in a zippie once they're hard. That way, you can pull out one at a time rather than having to do a whole package because they're stuck together.
