Beckee's Best of Scottsdale Grocery 7/4-7/10

Please Note, I am still getting used to the prices and teh different grocery trends here in Scottsdale, so my deals will likely change over time. I have already learned that bread is much more expensive here than Omaha, and milk much less, but most other things are fairly comprable so far. That in mind, Here are my favorite deals in Scottsdale grocery this week:
Albertsons Market
  • Albertsons Milk Gallon $1.57 (limit 2)
  • Blueberries 18 oz 2/$4 (limit 2)

***Remember that I generally just price match at Walmart as much as I can rather than go to all the stores separately! I LOVE being able to do that. You can also pricematch at Target, but I find it easier to pricematch at Walmart.


Back to the grind in a new location...

We have made it to Arizona!!

We are settling into out house here in Scottsdale. We have been here for a week and a half, and there are less boxes in the house, but that is of course a work in progress:

But to be honest, I have not been JUST unpacking. We have also tried to have a little fun and discover this new home of ours a little.
I am looking for lots of FREE activities to share about Scottsdale (a little hard to do, but I have found some so far). I am going to find out about where kids eat free here and when, and I just got my first set of grocery ads here the other day, so I am working on my first Scottsdale grocery deals.
For my OMAHA fans, I will continue to post the things I know about Omaha going on (like Railroad Days coming next week!), but I will not be doing grocery deals anymore. There is a blogger in Omaha that posts her favorite grocery deals each week-it is not as extensive as my long list, but will give you a few of the best deals. I will post her info later today along with a list of other Omaha blogs I know of!

As for me and my blog, we have moved to Scottsdale (for a year) and have a new adventure ahead!

AWAY WE GO!! More coming today!
