For Smart Couples…Forget the Recession! Learn how to pay 1960's Prices for everything from salad dressing to dressing up for a night out!

I try not to waste your time!!!

Here at Frugal for Two, and in my own shopping, I try to focus on only the best deals from each store, rather than listing every single item in a store’s grocery circular (some of which aren’t even really sales, but rather something closer to paid advertisements where food manufacturer’s pay for ad space) and every possible coupon you could use to save 50 cents off an already inflated shelf price.

What you’ll find here are the “pick of the litter” deals, the deals that are going to help you drastically lower your grocery costs.

I also include mention of any great sales on “loss leaders”, meat, produce, dairy and deli deals that it would be a great idea to take advantage of.

That said, Giant Eagle has some great deals going on this week!! BOGO meat deals, some decent produce prices, and some FANTASTIC health/beauty deals that will result in some Catalina coupons that you can use to save on the rest of your grocery shopping.

Read and Print Giant Eagle’s Coupon Policy Here

Remember, Giant Eagle doubles all coupons under 99 cents, so any coupon values listed in my posts that are less than that will automatically double at the register with your Rewards Card!!
