Jolene’s 99 Cents Only Shopping Trip 2/19

99 Cents Feb 19
Normally, I do not enjoy grocery shopping on stormy days … but it’s 99 Cents Only Store trip day! And totally worth braving the rain for these gems:

1.   Lightlife Kick’n Black Bean Burgers 4ct, 10oz frozen (!)
2.   Fresh Avocados, 4ct (!)
3.   Good Grains Steel Cut Oats, 15oz
4.   TJ Farms Select Blueberries, 10oz frozen
5.   Yoplait Fruplait Yogurt, 4pk
6.   Yoplait Baby Yogurt, 4pk
7.   Jo Ann Blank Cards + Envelopes, 50ct (retail $6.99!)
8.   Hallmark Multipack Notecards (retail $4.49)

The Lightlife Kick’n Black Bean Burgers are normally found in Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.  I thought $1 for a package of 4 was a bargain.  Planning on serving the burgers topped with the fresh avocado and a little salsa!  If you’d like to try making Homemade Black Bean Burgers, here is the TFF recipe.   The Lightlife burgers are non-GMO, too!  I love the Good Grains Steel Cut Oats as hot oatmeal mixed with blueberries on cold, stormy mornings (well, any morning!)  If you’ve never tried steel cut oats, you’re missing out!  Finally, a nice shipment of assorted Hallmark Multipack Notecards + Envelopes ranging from 10-12ct has arrived!  I am very old-fashioned & insist that my kids handwrite and mail Thank You notes after birthdays or Christmas.  What about you?  Handwritten notes are a nice tradition to maintain, I feel, in our modern digital world.  I thought the Jo Ann Value Pack of Blank Cards + Envelopes 50ct was a good deal — and you could personalize the cards with photos of your child playing (or wearing) the gift.  Look for the Value Pack beneath the Hallmark packs in the Party Aisle!

This week’s shopping trip highlight was brought to you by Jolene, the  TFF 99 Cents Only Store expert! Find a 99 Cents Store location near you.

    Willow Pass Rd. Store in Concord today has:
    LARABAR uber Sweet & Salty Fruit & Nut Bars, 5ct box for $1
    Silk Iced Mocha Latte, 64oz chilled for $1
    Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips, 10oz I think

    I stocked-up on the LARABAR uber! Target was selling the 5ct box for $6! These are called Cherry Cobbler & are loaded w/ almonds, dried cherries, pecans, cashews, dates, non-GMO, and can’t beat 20cents per LARABAR. The Silk Mocha Latte 64oz is selling at Target for $3.99!

    Since I was in the area, I popped-in to Grocery Outlet Concord which is across the street. They are also selling Lightlife Black Bean Burgers 4ct — but priced $1.99.

    Rare treat for us today! Mount Diablo is dusted with snow. Beautiful. Reminds me of a giant cupcake dusted ever so lightly with confectioner’s sugar! :)

    Wow! It’s amazing how the things we find differ so much! I saw the baby yogurt, but passed since I don’t have babies anymore. I did see a kids yogurt by Yoplait, that contained protein. I didn’t buy that either though, since I had recently bought yogurt at Costco.

    To see what I did buy, please check out my post here….

    I’ve been inspired to blog about my weekly shopping trips as well! It’s so helpful to know what to be on the look out for! Thanks for posting!
