Comp List 4/10-4/16

Hello, everyone! Another week has flown by... good thing each week brings us closer to warmer weather! (I am ALWAYS freezing.)

Anyway, I just wanted to mention one thing real quick.  I had a few cashiers as if I could so here it is... Please don't write on your comp items with a Sharpie! It does make it easier at checkout but every now and then someone isn't able to pay for it (if your check bounces, for example) and ALL of those groceries have to then be thrown in the trash (Walmart cannot put them back on the shelves).  One of the other options for you to do to make checking out a bit easier is to use garage sale stickers.  I carry those around with me and write the prices on the stickers and then put them on the item.  It is easy enough and if I had mistakenly picked up the wrong item (and didn't want to buy it), Walmart won't have to toss it!  

One other tip- if you shop in Ottawa and want a decent price on milk- go to Walgreens! They have it listed this week for $2.79 for a gallon! (limit 2) (And if you don't live near Ottawa, but you have a Walgreens Store close by you might check their ad to see if they have it on sale, too!)

The giveaways are going well- if you have donated an item to the giveaway and yours hasn't been done yet don't worry! It will be soon- I had an overwhelming response to the request for giveaway items!! Anyway, the winners for last week were: Diane Caryl won the Scentsy giveaway and Cathy Kingery won the Premier Design bracelet.  Congrats!!

And in case you missed the instructions for the giveaway, here they are once again: 

Each week, I will post one or two ads in the regular ad section (at the end of the comp list).  These special ads will have a little sign on them that says "Email "(a code word)" to to enter".  The code word is located on the ad.  Just email that key word to me (put it in the subject line) and you will be entered! The item in the giveaway will be something from the business that the ad is for but you have to enter to find out what it is!  There are some GREAT items!  If there is more than one giveaway you want to enter for that week, you MUST send me separate emails for the different items.  Please only enter one time for each drawing.  I will try to respond to each entry so you know I got it!  I think I will also post some of the special ads on my blog randomly throughout the month so check there to see if there are any current giveaways on there!  These may or may not be "flash" giveaways that only last a day or two so keep checking. Winners will be announced in the comp list on Wednesdays!

The giveaways shown on the comp list will end on Tuesday, April 16th at 7:00pm! And please be aware- one of the ads is for a gift certificate to a store in Lyndon, KS so please only enter if you are willing to go there!   (The other item can be mailed.)

Thank you and have a great week!

Hello, first let me say thank you for taking the time to put a comp list together every week. I am new to this so I was wondering how do you price match the meat?
