Hey, I'm so glad to find a PNWesterner who is doing $5 meals! I'm in SE Washington State (Tri-Cities), and have not been able to find anybody blogging about deals at Winco or Albertson's. Love that you're doing it, hope you don't mind I'm now a stalker ... er, follower!

Oh, gee, now I see you're in the Tri-Cities too. LOL. Guess I should have read your profile ... ! I've also got two kids, my daughter is 15-1/2 and my son is 12. My son is a very picky eater though and that makes it a challenge!

Thank you so much. I thought my NW friends would like the WinCo sales. It's a little work because they do not have fliers but I shop and write down prices at the same time. Enjoy.
