I don't often shop at Meijer because I don't have one here in my town. Shopping at Meijer means I either have to make a trip up to Middletown or down to Fields Ertel (where there is traffic GALORE!} and I'll spend valuable time and use up more gas in my van getting there and back.

However, every once in a while - say every two months or so - Meijer runs a great sale during a week when Kroger is running a ho-hum sale. When that happens, I find the time to make a quick trip to Meijer for the best of the deals.

This is one of those weeks!

Meijer is running a buy 10 for $10, get the 11th item FREE sale this week and not only are there lots of coupon matchups for the items in the sale, there are LOTS of fresh produce items included in the sale as well. When I saw that Meijer had 1 lb strawberries for $1.00 included in the sale, I was SOLD! Fresh strawberries are a food group unto themselves for my kiddos during this time of year. ;-)

Here are the deals I grabbed yesterday; I also ordered some coupons from my favorite clipping service so I can make a return trip before the sale ends Saturday night (6/11).
