Before I start with this week’s flyer review, I would like to talk about Loblaws for a moment. Well, complain really. You see, while I’m hospitalized and do not necessarily need to grocery shop, I do occasionally help some of my family members by buying them some food. And I also fill my Aunt’s freezer with my stash of ice cream (thank you Aunt Paul!).
Back to Loblaws. The last couple of times that I’ve ordered groceries – and ice cream lol – the meat that I ordered and was on sale, expired the very next day! THE NEXT DAY! The first time it was not caught until they got home so it was frozen immediately. This time, it was caught and refused at the store. I ask only this. Does Loblaws think that we are stupid? Burn me once, shame on you! Burn me twice, shame on me!
I wonder if other customers using their online shopping program have had similar problems. Does anyone know? Now Walmart beats Loblaws in 3, three, areas! #1 – Walmart offers Ad Match to their online shoppers! I saved over $21 last order! #2 – If Walmart runs out of a product, they will give you the closest available product at the lower price! I once ordered a small bag of Werther’s. Walmart ran out of the small bags so they gave me the larger bag for the price of the small bag! Woo-hoo! Now Loblaws, well if they run out of something they’ll give you the closest available item AND charge you the higher price. Buggers! #3 – I’ve never had Walmart give me anything that was about to expire. EVER! Loblaws = FAIL!

You don’t need to lose weight silly! I can’t wait to see how the recipe turns out. I lovelovelove that blogger!
We just bought some broccoli yesterday, and it looked very fresh. Went to cut it up and cook it today and had to throw at least half out because it was starting to rot!

Where did you get it?
Awesome! I’m going to look up koolade jammer … I don’t know what that is however I’m linking it to monster alien jello wiggle wiggle fruit thang?!
Walmart does come out ahead … why loblaws wants to take the piss out of people when there is plenty of competition is beyond me – the cases of water have been pretty decent lately eh? Anyhow those cherrries you got us this week we’re amazing!!!!! Didn’t get them last time cause they said they were out … offered organic instead at close to double the price! I love your shopping tips … I read the flyers this week is why I asked about Sobeys xox

Kool-Aid jammers are these little pouches of Kool-Aid. Kind of like a juice box without the box. I added Sobeys this week because of the butter and the people who use Ad Match. Can you believe I saved $21 using it! Everyone with a smart phone should download Flipp and take advantage of Ad Match!
