Best Grocery Store Deals in the DeKalb IL area

Grocery Stores in the DeKalb Area Sales this week:

The best deals as I see:   Remember if you want to save time you can always shop at Walmart and bring in your ads from the DeKalb Mid-Week just in case they ask to see them.  You won’t get the Catalina deals though from Jewel at Walmart.

I really know of days buy lots of my produce from Aldis because I am into losing weight again.  I have lost 76 pounds in 7 months after giving birth to my second child one year ago this Saturday.  I really don’t coupon a lot of process foods because of my new life approach.

My favorite day to shop at Hy-Vee is Wednesday.  Why Wednesday is because their Healthy Market  is 10 percent off.  It beats driving out of town to a health market and my money stays to local business.

Updated Jewel Freezer Deal this Sunday – 2/27/11


Jewel Freezer deal. More details with the ad out in the newspaper today!

The Freezer: Igloo Chest Freezer

Size:  5.2 Cubic Foot

Cost $159.99

Coupons:  – Get a coupon booklet of $160.00 worth of coupons.  They all expire this year on May 31st, 2011


Great coupon booklet list here on what you will get in your coupon booklet:  Go to the Blog .  (Thanks


Should I use all the coupons that day?

Number One: Why because you must for starters have your freezer plugged in for 24 hours ahead of time.

Number Two: A Person with great couponing skills would not use them all that day because they would wait for a buy one get one free sale!  Getting 2 items for free! J

When does the store open? Get their early if you want one.  They have limited quantity at each store.  About 50 per Jewel store and  if it is a bigger Jewel Store a little more than 50!  First come first serve once the store is out they are out.  No rain checks are offered!

Can I use other coupons to pay for the Freezer Chest?

(Like RR from Walgreens and Catalina coupons from Jewel)

Yes you can but there is a limit one store and one manufacturer coupon per purchase.


Where can I find out more about the coupons and the Jewel deal?
