Frugal Fryer's Fabulous Finds

 My friends tease me that I can be cheap. Admittedly,  I do enjoy a good bargain and am always searching for ways to save money.  Instead of resisting my "frugal" ways, I have decided to embrace them and share some of my tips and knowledge. After all, with the economy in the pits, we can all benefit from a little extra cash. 

I hope this will become a forum for all of us Los Osos patrons to share ideas, discounts and bargains. If you have any info. on local stores, restaurants, whatever, please scroll to the end of this article, click on "comment" and enter your hot tip.

VONS: Did you know our sorry little Vons is getting a facelift? It will soon have hardwood floors, a florist, and an entire new look to bring it into the new millennium. 
-Right now they have baskets full of "clearance" items that they are trying to get rid of. I bought pull ups for $5, dog treats for $1.75 and cereal for $1.75.  
Other weekly bargains include:
-Red and green grapes for .88 per pound 
-Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey is buy one get one free.

-Gala Apples 2 lbs. for $1
- Russet Potatoes - 2 lbs. for $1, 
-Campbell's Soup - 4 cans for $3

Last tip for the week - my friend Erin told me that from Monday thru Thursday, Round Table has a large 2 topping pizza for just $10.99. Guess what we're having for dinner tonight!

Happy Eating and don't forget to leave your shopping tips in the comment section. 


  1. Hi Paula,
    What a great idea! Here's a money saving tip for Kids Halloween costumes.If you have looked online it is so pricy plus you pay shipping!!Plus this way you are being First I went to Merry Go Round in Slo (their new location is by Applebee's) and found a Brand new mermaid costume for my 2 yr old, it still had the tags on..only $20!!It's a little big on her and i know she'll wear it for dress up play a lot so it's a deal!Then we went to the Goodwill on Higuera in Slo and they have a ton of Halloween costumes for kids and big kids too!! My 5 yr old boy found a skeleton costume that he loved!! and I loved the price only $5!!They also had some new in package wigs and accessories too!
    My advice is to shop early for the best deals!! Happy Halloween!

  2. Vons has pears, 3 lbs. for $1!
