Katie’s Shopping List: Week of 4/1

 Posted by on April 1, 2012

Bit of a slow week out there, if you ask me.  I am excited for some free Allegra – my allergies are back this year with a particularly intense vengeance!

We’re also seeing some great egg and ham deals – typical Easter-time stuff.  Luckily, you all now know how to snag a bunch of these deals while you can and freeze them for future use!

As always, you can review some coupon basicsThe Lazy Girl’s Guide to Couponing, and my favorite stores’ policies to learn how to get started at each store.  Happy couponing!

DISCLAIMER: As always, these deals are based on circulars and internet searches (see our Blogroll for some of my favorite deal-sharing sites) for the BEST deals in/on stores/products I visit/use in the Baltimore metro area.  Remember that there are some great deals out there that I just don’t use (for example, we have very little use for things like baby food in our house, no matter how cheap it is!), some price/coupon value differences by store and region, and some deals that just aren’t low enough to meet my stockup price. When I do my shopping and find mistakes or corrections, I update the list as soon as possible.  In the meantime, please feel free to share corrections, deals I missed, and other useful info!
