Help, Please! ~ Send Us Your Catalina Notices

yoplait_catalina(Thanks, for this and other Catalina notices you always send us, Marisela!)

We are wanting to have an accurate list of available Catalina offers, but can’t do it without your help.  Personally, I don’t get them very often.  Seriously — the machine hates me.  I have to dig in trash cans or bend down in dark parking lots to find them.  It’s a joke between us, behind the scenes.  I don’t get any Catalina love!??!  Between all of us who work behind the scenes, we have a list, but still not a complete list.  Help!

We want to let you know about them, when they match with a great deal.  And, if we feel like we have enough, I’ll create a page on the website, that you can get to whenever you want.   So . . . help!

If you get a notification of a Catalina (usually a printout, at the register), will you send the information our way?  We would love a picture, just for double verification and to get all the details we need, but if you can’t do that, typing it out for us is better than nothing and we’ll take it!  Please let us know what store you got it at, the exact products listed, dates, and amounts.  I’m only looking for the ones that tell you what you can save, on a future purchase, if you buy a certain product.  If you get a wonderful coupon and know what you bought that triggered it, I guess those are good, too.  :)

Also, if we have a Catalina listed that says “haven’t tested” and you try it, please let us know.  Of, if you try it at a different store and it works, we’d love to hear about it.  Catalina printouts often come from one store, but work at more.  You just never know for sure, until it’s tested.

Email Gina or me — or comment below any post on the website (It’s better if it’s not on Facebook since sometimes we don’t see every comment there, though we try!  If you send us a private message on Facebook, we’ll get it, so that also works.)  If you can snap a pic — even better!

$10 Box of Produce in Phoenix & Tucson Areas ~ 60 lbs (Saturday)


For those that don’t know, Market on the Move has been overtaken by another organization, Produce on Wheels.

Market on the Move still has some limited distribution sites/dates, but I don’t see any for this Sat.  Check out their Facebook page for future updates.

Both organizations offer about 60 pounds of produce for only $10.  You can bring a laundry basket or boxes, or they also provide them.  It’s a spectacular deal, but keep in mind that they may limit some varieties and some may be close to spoiling.  On the other hand, you may be able to walk away with more than you know what to do with of your favorite item, and it may be completely fresh.

If you can find a produce buddy and split the cost, that’s the best way to do it.  :)  Or, you can make many people happy by sharing it.  It can be a lot of food!

For produce selection at Produce on Wheels, check out their website each week or sign up for their newsletterHere’s a link to the most recently newsletter they sent me.

I haven’t been to Produce on Wheels yet and it’s been awhile for Market on the Move.  If you’ve gone to either organization recently, please share your thoughts in the comments below.  Or, if you go on Saturday, I’d love to hear your feedback.  Thanks!

Here’s is this Saturday’s schedule for Produce with Wheels . . .

Winco Coupon Policy, Quick Facts & A Few Deals


Here are a few quick bullet points for you, if you’re not familiar with Winco:

  • Link to full coupon policy here
  • Accepts coupons at face value
  • Coupons must scan
  • No cash back for coupons worth more than product
  • Does not accept printable coupons for free items (Buy 1, Get 1 are ok)
  • Combine store coupons (mailed sometimes) with manufacturer coupon
  • Often has coupons at the entrance to store — check them out!
  • Does NOT accept credit cards (will take debit)
  • Have to bag your own groceries; bags provided
  • Have MANY bulk bins for all kinds of things, even many spices

I moved recently — a whole two miles from my old house.  It’s crazy how those two miles changed my thinking about what is close and what is not.  There’s a newer Winco near me (south of Baseline, off Country Club).  It’s now my closest grocery store.

At first, I was kind of sad since I like to go in with a bargain plan and they don’t have regular ads.  (If you got their recent coupons, they’re great ones, though!)  But, I really do believe their regular prices are consistently lower than the other grocery stores in Arizona.  It make sense.  Weekly ads are expensive!

Another way they reduce costs are by having you bag your own groceries and not accepting credit cards.  (They do take debit.)

As much as I like a plan, and to have my coupons ready to go, I also like to wander around looking for deals, when I have time.  This is a good place to do that.

It’s rare that I need to run in for only one or two things, but when I do need to, I won’t feel as ripped off.  It’s the full price “desperate” things that I do not like having to purchase at grocery stores, since they are almost always higher than Target or Walmart.  But, I think Winco is very close to the same, if not better, for some items.

Recently, I forgot ice cream for my daughter’s birthday party.  I was debating on going up another 1/2 mile, to ad match at Walmart, but decided it wasn’t worth it.  Turns out, Winco had their brand for $2.50, which was the sale price somewhere else that week.  Good decision!

Any Winco pros out there have any opinions/tips for Winco?  I’m still a novice, but think I’ll like it!

Here are some pics of items I stumbled on that I thought were good deals, for things we have coupons for right now.  Below is a list of all the coupons, if you want them have them handy.  There are many other deals to be found!


Bread:  98¢ (around $1.50 at Walmart, I think)
