    Best Deals of the Week

    I’ve compiled best deals available at the drugstores, Target, Ralphs/Kroger, and other stores. I stick to deals that don’t require too many or any obscure coupons, and I try to pick practical items that most people buy at some point.

    Use this list to decide which stores to hit this week, based on what you need. You might even use it to decide you can skip shopping for a week, because you don’t need what’s on sale.

    1. Cheap Soup at Target

    When I first started couponing, soup would often be $0.50 or less. But in the last few years, it’s been rare to see it for less than $0.75. So here’s a good deal at Target:

    BUY: 1 Progresso Soup @ $1.50
    USE: $1/1 Progresso Soup Can from 1/5 Smart Source
    Pay: $0.50

    There was also a $1/1 Coupons.com printable previously available that you might still have around.

    Pay: $2.50

    I think this is the lowest price I’ve ever seen on the smaller bottles of Powerade:

    BUY: 4 Powerade 8pk @ $4 each

    Net Price: $2.75/pack or $0.35/bottle

    If you’re not an Angel Soft fan, check out this Quilted Northern deal instead. You can get a slightly better deal at Walgreens next week, but if you’re not a Walgreens shopper or need toilet paper immediately, you can get a good deal at CVS this week:

    If you don’t have the $1/1 Bundle pack coupon, there’s a $0.50/1 printable and a $0.30/1 regional coupon from the 2/9 Smart Source {that’s what was in my LA Times}. The net price works out to $0.62 or $0.67 respectively, which is still a good deal.
