Thank you to Reader KC Yosh who commented in last week’s post about finding Nature Made items at the Concord Willow Pass store.  Sure enough, today I found them at the Clayton store.  It’s a big help when we share our finds, especially since we can’t rely on a printed weekly ad circular.  I wanted to mention a good use for the Avery Note Tabs.  If your coupon binder/box needs organization, these tabs are perfect for dividing categories of coupons into sections.  My sections are labeled Cereal, Chilled, Canned Goods, etc. and it streamlines my couponing trips!

    I know this may be a dumb question, but is everything in this store 99cents? I’ve recently moved and there is a 99cent store nearby I can’t wait to check out

      Welcome! Excellent question! The answer is no. I’ve shopped here for the past 8 yrs, and in the beginning everything was $.99. Then in 2008, due to rising inflation, they raised it to $.99.99 (which really rings up as $1, when the cash register rounds-up the decimal). Then they added a handful of items that are slightly more than $1, such as 18ct Eggs ($2.29), but these should have clearly-marked signs. So, the majority of items will ring up $1 or less. I suggest starting with small shopping trips done regularly … you’ll learn quickly!

    The eggplants were especially large & beautiful–$1 for any whole one, so choose a heavy one! Gold Idaho potatoes 5lb bag from Wada Farms for $1. Roasted gold potatoes with the Challenge Butter Sea Salt & Pepper on my menu plan. Anybody else print a $2-off coupon for this butter & never found it in stock at the grocery stores? Sadly I had to toss my coupon because it expired :(

      I liked the taste of the new Sea Salt + Pepper Butter :) It is not as strong as I expected. Went well on roasted potatoes, and a timesaver to not have to sprinkle salt/pepper. I also spread it on toasted English Muffin, fill with scrambled eggs and a slice of bacon for a Breakfast Sammie. Basically, it would be good on savory dishes that you normally have to season w/salt and pepper.

      When i went back to the 99 cent store, I also found the regular Challenge butter tubs … unseasoned. Good luck!
