  • Ralphs: 11/16 – 11/24/11

    Note: This summary of deals is based on the ad I get in Los Angeles, where Ralphs stores double coupons up to $1 (one like coupon per transaction). I don’t list all of the deals, only the good ones. If I missed any, please let us all know in the comments. Learn about shopping at Ralphs, including their coupon policy, here.

    I’ve marked what I consider to be stock-up prices with an asterisk (*). It may not be the lowest price I’ve ever seen, but it’s low enough that I think it’s worth buying extra if it’s something you buy regularly.

    This week’s ad is a little different from the usual ad, since it’s valid through Thanksgiving (instead of ending next Tuesday). It’s a long ad, but unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they’re bringing back the $1 doubles this year. I wasn’t expecting them to, but I was hoping anyway – it was so much fun last year. But everything is more expensive this year, so we’ll just have to make do with the deals we do have:

    There’s a deal for FREE MILK when you buy 4 participating General Mills, Pillsbury, Nature Valley, Fiber One, Betty Crocker or Cascadian Farm products. The Free Milk excludes organic and buttermilk. Limit 2 rewards per transaction. I’ve matched up the items pictured with available coupons, but there will be way more items in the store so take your General Mills inserts and any higher value coupons you might have with you – and I’ll post an update if I see any great deals when I get to the store.

      Not a comment, but a question: It appears that you live in an area close to where I live. Do you have a list of prices that you try to not exceed when shopping for groceries, etc., or you use when you try to stock up? I can’t think what various bloggers call it, but I hope you understand what I’m referring to.

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        Yes, I do have a price book but it’s mostly in my head at this point. If there’s something specific you’re looking to stock up on, I can try to give you a target price. Also, I’ve written about price books before.
