  1. Nice list! Minor correction though - banana day at Checkers is Tuesday!

  2. Hmm, their flyer says Thursday! Did they make a typo?

  3. I found your blog through @Lblogs twitter! I'm glad to find another frugal blogger in Lawrence!! I post less often on deals and more often now on projects. I'm definitely going to start following your blog though!!

    Oh, and the banana day for Checkers IS Thursdays officially, though sometimes they also have the same price on Tuesdays. But Thursdays is consistent and advertised. I shop at Checkers for most of my groceries!

  4. Thanks Betsy! I'm checking out your blog right now!
