Sometimes the best grocery deals aren’t at the grocery store. They may even be somewhere completely off the wall, like Home Depot. Not convinced? Check out this deal that I got recently:
Home Depot ran a zombie game on their Facebook page for the month of October (no longer available); and if you played it long enough, you could earn a total of $30 in coupons to use in their lawn & garden section. That’s a lot of free money, and it could be used on all sorts of things – plants, mulch, flower pots or (if you think like me) groceries. You see, since it was October, they had big boxes of pie pumpkins in the lawn & garden section, and they were just begging to be taken home and pureed. So, I picked out $15 worth of pumpkins, and used the rest of my coupons to buy a tree for the backyard.
We’re currently using the pumpkins as Halloween decorations, but as soon as the holiday passes, those suckers are getting pureed. Pumpkin soup, here I come!
And if you think that’s odd, just wait until I tell you about the time that I grocery shopped at the library. The frugal life – it’s many things, but dull sure isn’t one of them.
Have you ever grocery shopped somewhere odd? I’d love to hear about it.
