Sarah emailed with a tip for the new Jersey Mike’s locations here in Colorado Springs: they have a kids eat free deal on Sundays! Kids can get a free kid’s meal with the purchase of an adult meal (choose from ham, turkey, and salami for the sandwich). I called to get the details and totally forgot to ask what the max age for a “kid” is, unfortunately. It’s usually 12 or under, but let me know if it’s different.
Note: Alison checked their menu and the kid’s meals are recommended for ages eight and under. I don’t know if that’s also the limit for the kids eat free promotion, but just FYI because that’s a lot lower than most kids’ menus!
This Friday through Sunday, Sprouts will have all varieties of chicken and pork sausage for $3.00/lb! That used to be a price we saw every-other week, but I don’t think we’ve seen that price since last October. They also have Golden Delicious apples for $0.49/lb and avocados for $0.49 each.
Just a reminder that the sausage sale is Friday-Sunday only, but that appears to be their only three-day sale.

We generally publish the weekly grocery deals and coupon matchups for Albertsons and King Soopers on Tuesday mornings. Sprouts' and Safeway's weekly deals and coupon matchups are published on Wednesday morning.

We are considering selling our home in the next 2-3 years and want any updates we make to be conducive to marketing it. We are in a tri-level home and the lower level needs to have the flooring replaced. I do not like carpeting due to allergy issues, so we were considering doing an acid wash concrete.
