Heinz Ketchup Deal!

As most of you are probably already aware, Heinz Ketchup is changing their recipe to contain less salt. If you hadn't heard yet, you can find one of the many MANY stories on it here. It's all a ploy for more government control over our lives but we won't get into that.

The whole point of this post is to make you aware so that you can keep an eye out for the really great deals out there as they are going to have to remove the old to make room for the new.

Case in point: On Thursday, hubby and I went to do some grocery shopping at Walmart. As I'm walking down the aisle I notice that the BIG 40oz squeeze bottles of Heinz Ketchup are on sale for $1 each. This, in my family, is more than a big deal. It's HUGE! We are always running out of Ketchup and I can't even stand the stuff. The boys and Andrea, however, will put it on anything and everything. Andrea, at 21 months, is a big fan of dipping this into that, including fingers when her edibles have vanished. We picked up 4 bottles of Heinz Ketchup then and will be going to pick up more this next week. What was on the shelf has a sell by date of July 2011 so that is more than enough time for my family to go thru about a dozen bottles and to get it for 75% off is the icing on the cake(or the ketchup on your french fry if you want to look at it that way). 
So, with this news in hand, if there are any coupons out there, now would be the ideal time to pull them out! Even without them though, this is not a deal to pass up! Be on the look out and don't forget that there are always shelters, food banks, schools and daycares out there that certainly wouldn't pass up a donation.
That is all I really have going on to post about at this very moment but that might change any second now so I will go ahead and cut it off here. Y'all have a happy Sunday and remember:
