A Little Mama Pride and Ridley's and BiLo's (Associated Food) Deals 2/15 - 2/21

First, I wanted to show off my children's ingenuity.  The kids in child #4's grade in school were challenged by a local bank to create a piggy bank. Of course, Child #4 is a sucker for contests of any kind (and being nine is totally optimistic he will win any or all competitions), and has been badgering me to help him create the perfect piggy bank. I have been a little short on time, lately, and hadn't gotten around to it. Last night when I came home from my night out with my Valentine, Child #2 had pulled out all sorts of household items (a.k.a. garbage) and helped him create his piggy bank. It warmed my little ol' heart to see them cooperating for a change (maybe there is hope for them, yet!). Isn't this the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?

  Okay, maybe it is a face only a mother could love! The body is an empty vinegar bottle. The leg's and ears are disposable paper cups. The tail is a pipe cleaner, and the eyes are buttons salvaged from my button box. The paint came out of my stash of acrylic paint. The cost ...FREE! I was informed that he has green feet, ears, and a stripe to make him a MANLY looking pig!

Now, on to the real reason for this post. This week's Ridley (Associated Foods) deals. There are a few good sales, but not as many as I had hoped.
  • Yoplait (6 oz) yogurt cups (assorted varieties) $.37 each (for the first 10)
  • W.F. (18 count) carton of large eggs $1.77 each ($.09 per egg)
  • Two liters of Pepsi Products (assorted varieties) $.98 each
  • Angel Soft ( 9 mega, 12 double, or 24 single rolls) Toilet Paper $4.68 each
  • Sparkle (8 roll) Paper Towels $4.68 each
  • Large Box of Navel Oranges $11.97 ($.33 pound)
  • Small Pink Grapefruit 4 for $1.00
  • Jonagold, Braeburn, or Golden Delicious Apples $.87 pound
As a heads up, Ridley's and Nel's BiLo will be starting their case lot sales March 1st. Now is a good time to go inventory your pantries, so you can take advantage of the case lot sales.

  5. *snort* I truly love that little piggy! His big blue eyes look a little startled like, "How did I get here???" I sure do hope he wins!!!
