Weekly savings at your neighborhood store

DW and I are finally home, drinking coffee and eating omelets on a Saturday morning. This type of weekend has been in short supply as of late due to typical NYC crazy schedules. But we're glad it's here, and soon we'll have a few more to cheer about -- School ends for us on Wednesday! Woo hoo!

We've been going through previously clipped coupons and weekly circulars to see where we can save some dollars on things we need. I thought it would be handy to have a list of local circulars to see easily what's on sale and where. I might incorporate a few of these into a sidebar for easy access.

Pathmark Circular: There are a few in Manhattan, but when we go it's usually at the inwood location. Straight shot up on the 1 train. East siders might check out the one on 125th -- if I recall, it's above the 4/5 stop. I love fairway, but some things are just too damn expensive there. It's not worth the trip to Pathmark for the produce (sorry, Pete), but do load up the freezer with their meat and chicken.
Food Emporium
Gristedes (PC Only... argh)
Whole Foods (store specials)
Key Food

(No ads from Westside Market, or Trader Joes. Fairway sometimes posts specials, but it's rare.)

Duane Reade Circular: Since they are about as numerous as Starbucks and McDonalds, you don't need me to point out your local DR. Sometimes worth it just for the convenience.
Rite Aid

These are the ones that come to mind first. If you leave comments with others, I'll revise the post.

As a side note, we got our credit card bill in the mail yesterday. Now every month has its odd expenses, and this might not have been full of them. That being said, I still have to assume having two weeks of home-cooked meals (vs. eating out) is partially to thank a statement over $500 less than last month. Obviously we need to keep this up to see if it wasn't just a fluke, but what a reason to keep it up. We're enjoying our defrosted meatloaf for lunch today. :)
