Finally, we talked about shopping the after holiday clearances. With Easter having just passed the stores want to clear out their inventory of seasonal Easter items. They usually start at 30% off and if you are lucky move all the way up to 90% off. It is a great time to snag some things for next year. Also, tons of the "seasonal" items really aren't seasonally themed, like some of the toys. I always look for items that are being clearanced but that are not necessarily holiday themed that I can use either next year during the holiday or for presents throughout the year. Shopping these after holiday clearances are a great way to save a TON of money!

Whole Foods One Day Sale!

Whole Foods is having another one day sale today, Wendesday, May 4th. You can stop by your local store to snag Wild Caught Coho Salmon for only $9.99/lb., regularly $14.99/lb., and also get Pamela's Gluten Free Pancake Mix (64 oz.) for only $7.99 each, regularly $14.99 each.

If you or someone in your family has a gluten intolerance, then you know how pricey gluten free foods can be. Both the salmon and gluten free pancake mix are great deals, but make sure you head over Whole Foods today if you want in on this sale!
