Disney on Ice Coming!

I'm so excited to announce that Disney on Ice is coming to Utah, and we'll have free tickets to give away!  Stay tuned for all the details!
For now, I wanted to give you some info on two great events coming up!  First, Disney on Ice is teaming up with the Utah Food Bank to give away free tickets!  Get your free ticket on September 27th and help out with a great cause at the same time!  Just bring ten cans of food to donate per person to the Utah Food Bank at 3150 South 900 West at 11:00 am on the 27th. The first 600 donors will receive a free ticket, with a limit of one per adult.  What a great chance to help a great cause and earn a free ticket!

The second event I want to tell you about is the Circus Parade!  That's right!  By now you guys all know that the circus is coming to town next week!  My kiddos are so excited!  And I don't know about you, but I wasn't even aware that there was a parade to kick off the fun!  So make sure to mark your calendar for Wednesday, September 22nd at 12pm!  The parade begins at 200 South Rio Grande Street and will travel through the Gateway.  What a fun way to celebrate the arrival of the circus!
***Don't forget that you can still get tickets for shows from Wednesday through Saturday of next week!  See the button on my side bar for $10 tickets for the kiddos!

Best Grocery Deals of the Week

This list contains pricing for some of the best grocery deals this week in the Salt Lake Valley. Many of these items are things you may purchase each week. Often, items like produce, meat and dairy goods do not have coupons, so I've listed some of the best deals to help cut your grocery bill even without coupons. You can use this list in one of two ways--either go to each store individually for the discounts or print the list to use for price-matching at Walmart or Target (Super Target has a larger selection of grocery items).

Keep in mind that it is always smart to bring your ads with you, just in case. Also, I try to keep my price-matching purchases together either at the front or back of my order. That makes it easier to go over pricing with the cashier and also speeds up the process to not hold up other customers waiting to be served.

Also, don't forget that stores have different ad dates. Though I try to get this list posted each Tuesday evening, not all of the ads start on Wednesday. Here is a list of ad dates for major grocery retailers in the area:

Harmon's Monday-Sunday
Ream's Tuesday-Monday
Smith's Wednesday-Tuesday
Fresh Market Wednesday-Tuesday
Associated Foods Tuesday-Monday
