QFC Grocery Basket 7/25

Miss MoneyPenny was thrilled to see that Social Security had made a deposit in my checking account, right on schedule, the 4th Wednesday of the month.  What is up with that date? but I'm not complaining.  This was the last piece in my retirement income to fall into place, so now I feel that I can breathe and relax.  To celebrate I called up the Hair School and got my toenails painted.  The students take longer than a salon but they are thorough and for half the price.  And the gossip is fabulous.

Okay, on to the QFC ad.  I was pleased to see that Tillamook cheese (house cheese) is on sale because I'm almost out, and cherries are $1.99.  Better get 'em before they are done.  Here is what I consider to be of interest:

Rosarita Refried Beans - $1/ea
QFC Butter - $2.50/lb
QFC Sour Cream - $1/16 oz
Tillamook Cheese - $5.99/2 lb
Colgate Toothpaste - $1/4.6 oz (coupon for $ .50 S/7/08 making it $ .50 each)
Draper Valley Whole Chicken - $ .89/lb
Northwest Cooked Shrimpmeat - $4.99/lb
Fresh Wild Sockeye - $9.99/lb
Fresh Rockfish - $5.99/lb
Angel Soft Bathroom Tissue - $1/ea
Leaf Lettuce - $1/ea
Mangoes or Hass Avocados - $ .99/ea
Northwest XL Cherries - $1.99/lb
Olathe Sweet Corn - $1/3
Walla Walla Sweet Onions - $1/lb


The days are ticking down to the 31st.  Get your name in the hat by leaving a comment(s).  The prize is a $30 Macy's gift card.


If you are heading for retirement and trying to get your ducks in a row, I wanted to mention that I applied for Social Security in March and here it is July before it happened.  Just sayin'.


  1. Why an elephant? Why not a beautiful, fluffy kitty with painted "toenails?"

  2. I so enjoyed meeting you guys at lunch today. Such fun. I love your blog and visit often. It's very entertaining. Have a great weekend.

  3. Shery! It was so great bumping in to you and the divine Miss M yesterday. How funny to be seated right next door. For some reason I don't receive a message when you post a new blog, even though I've subscribed and checked the notification box. Strange, huh? Guess I need to be more aggressive about keeping up. Sure miss your smiling face in the staff workroom. Not the same without you. HUGS! <3
