I love Thursdays because I get to see the sales for the following week, unfortunately I don't get all the flyers (usually only Loblaws and Independent post their flyers online on Thursday) and I have to wait until Friday for the Metro flyer and until Saturday for the Farm Boy flyer... it used to be that the Thursday newspaper included all the flyers but not anymore (that makes me angry), but this week is different thanks to my friend Carrie I got to see all the flyers yesterday and I can tell you about the awesome sales that are on this week.
For all of you in the Ottawa area....
METRO is offering:
-seedless cucumbers, celery and tomatoes for 99cents each... can you say SALAD?
-a bag of 4 sweet red peppers for 2.99 (perfect as snacks with some dip)
-Campbell's broth for 1.97 (good for risotto, which I'll make this week)
YOUR INDEPENDENT (as well as LOBLAWS) has on sale:
-Mushrooms and tomatoes for 99 cents a pound (great for pasta dishes)
-Salmon portions 2.49 (great with some brown rice and zucchini)
-D'Italiano bread for 1.49 (great for some sammiches.. yum yum)
-Large Broccoli for 1.29 each
-PC Air Chilled whole chicken 2.49lb (do yourself a favour and get a chicken, roast it with some potatoes the leftovers can be had with some salad and then make some broth for a wonderful soup)
-Chocolate Milk 99 cents per litre (for those of you out there who enjoy this type of thing)
-Sweet red peppers 1.99 lb (these are usually bigger than the ones you get in a bag at Metro.. so you have an option)
-English muffins 1.29 pack of 6
... yeah not that many things at Farmboy
You might be wondering WHY DO I LOVE FLYERS SO MUCH?? well.. I love looking at the flyers because that way I can plan a lot of my meals around sale items and I can save (who doesn't like to save money??) I am pretty sure that many of you out there have this same love for flyer day.. do you??
