[Apple] Grocery Flyer Highlights in the GTA (updated weekly)

Ok, I want to first say I hope I'm not stepping on DealCruzers toes for starting this thread. I've noticed DealCruzer the last while hasn't really updated thier thread till like the last 1-2 days of the sale. Not to say I don't appreciate all that DealCruzer has done because I greatly appreciated it and it did help me save money as well as I have used it often before. Before that I checked out Baconators thread.

I can't do this alone much like Baconator and DealCruzer they got help from the community posting the deals and they updated the main post to help everyone else. So what I'm saying is I need everyones help to post any deals they see and I'll add it to this main page.

[Spot reserved for notes/messages/etc]

I manually enter every item I see in the flyer which I think is a good deal. I'm not cut and pasting as IIRC I can't cut and paste off the stores e-flyer so sorry if it takes a while as I'm a sight typer and not a touch-typer so it takes a little longer.

Wow took a while to type that all out. Now I really appreciate all the efforts DealCruzer did in typing everything out when DealCruzer was doing the updates.

IF YOU HAVE A PDF CONVERTER PROGRAM LIKE SCANPORT (IIRC) FROM PAPERPORT YOU CAN PRINT THE TOP POSTING AS A PDF THEN EMAIL IT TO YOURSELF LIKE I DO. That way you view the PDF on you mobile device for those without a smartphone like me. I use an old oooold Apple iTouch G1 (v1.1.4) which takes like 2 mins to load this thread on wifi but once the PDF is saved and downloaded I can view it like a list while shopping for a quick overview. Hope that helps out some of the other people without smartphones. That's my work around.

Thought I'd make a little section here for emergency ideas. Price of food and stuff will only go up. I don't want to preach doom and gloom but would like to share some knowledge and info for emergencies so at least people can hold out longer ~72hrs - 7 days+. We're pretty lucky in the GTA to be shielded by many major disasters. I think because of this people don't prepare much but stuff happens like forces of nature and well lets all hope some nutjob does not try to make us all glow in the dark a la dirty nuke. My hope is that some of this knowledge and info can help in a positive way so people don't freak out if the lights are out and such.

-Save your cans are reuse them as mini wood stoves for emergency stove use that uses little fuel and can be made with a swiss army knife or hammer/drill

http://gear-report.com/wp-content/uploa ... -stove.jpg for how it works.

http://zenstoves.net/Wood/Gasification.GIF -anoher better illustration


My audio is not playing and screwed up right now but IIRC this is a nice video to learn how to make one in about 10-20mins. Larger units can be made out of #10 metal cans or larger metal drums. Once you've made a few save a couple in the car for emergencies. :) Oh yes, If you do make a larger one (ie using the apple juice can) and have kids hehehe...it's a fun and good way to get them to collect (ackhem..clean the yard ;) ) for material to burn. If you use small cast iron pot/pans you can hold some nice heat for long cooking. ;) :D

It goes without saying if you're using a wood stove best to use it outside or a VERY well ventilated enclosure. I'm from the GTA and with all the high winds lately wood is in no short supply. If you live by a park or while going from work-home you can gather some small sticks and take it with you. Ample dry/dead wood in the GTA.

Almost everyone has a knife at home. Some have a thicker backing then others but if you don't have an axe and happen to have some small 1-2" wood limbs around you could use a hunting knife or a chopping knife to split the wood down to smaller pieces for your mini (or large(r) ) wood gas stove. So easy a girl can do it like in the video and that's not a slight on girls but just meaning anyone fe/male that thinks chopping wood needs a lot of muscle even someone without much muscle like someone upper in the age of years could still split some wood and make some meals.

[QUOTE](if you dehydrated the salmon say if you ate half a can you can mix that later with the rice at NoFrills in an emergency. A bag of rice could hold a family of 3-4 for a month..... watch and learn --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mmmpg-XCU-k also learn the 'no can opener' technique)
[/QUOTE]



Learned something new each day. Did not know of that can opener technique till recently.

I think anyone can store up some small supplies if they stash away 1-$5/week or put that extra $5/week towards extra groceries and some supplies even a student or someone on a very tight/fixed budget can do and keep it as a backup plan.

Grow your own veggies and herbs in a DIY, self watering ( :D ), portable grow box for $20.00 CDN. I'm sure this can be done with as little as a multitool if that is all you have. If you don't want to spend on a long PVC pipe or you found a PVC pipe and don't have enough for the small section cut offs at the bottom of the grow pot you could cut off the bottoms of 2L pop bottles (I don't think 500mL water bottle bottoms would fair well with the thin plastic with all that soil on top of it.



Stay safe and use gloves/safety glasses.

Only No Frills it seems allows the 'accessiblities' to be viewed as text. All other companies to my knowledge and IIRC when I clicked on thier option did not show the text or even had the page there.

Sorry for the typos this Toshiba NB100 freezes (locks up) suddenly, an also it seems I strike all the keys correctly yet about 70% of the times I'm missing 30% keystokes. :( Cant afford a new laptop so I'm just working with what I have. Thanks to the forum member that suggested the assessiblity page thing. I find right now looking at the hard copy flyer and then typing it works for me as well with my computer issues I don't know when things will suddenly lock up. No this is not a software lock up. I've had it lock up before even when I was in the BIOS or even waiting for Ubuntu to load up on an external cd bay. I use winxp sp3 here.

thedealhunter2000, we appreciate your efforts, but understand in the end many will still choose to view the actual flyer in case something they liked isnt listed here. The hours you spend on this I would kindly suggest would be best spent elsewhere.

I for one do appreciate your highlights of selected items.

well I sort of see the point, but I don't check every flyer. If there is a killer deal on some items I would go out of my way to go to the stores. For example, items like Coffee and Peanut butter have nearly gone up by 100%, so I always watch out for deals on those.

This week Freshco has Kraft peanut butter 750/1000g $3

Heads up. Galati's has manager specials on it's produce (reduced cost). They range from grade A to grade C (firm to lightly soft) on apples, bell peppers (2 red/2 green) 1.47 or 1.49,fruit. I only got the peppers. IIRC the fruit/veg is all 1.47/.49. Most of the items I quickly skimmed over are in grade A condition that I saw. Avoid the last check out. That guy didn't pack the items well and the blueberries ended up cutting the bag. :mad:

Bell Peppers is one of the worst offenders when it comes to pesticides. This veggy and celery, and any form of berries always buy organic.

T&T Anniversary
Period 3/16 - 4/12/2012

Sratch N Save.

My dad was there and they gave him a card. I wasn't there. I just scratched it and got $3 off clear chicken broth when you buy 12cans x 398mL.

Not sure if the card is given out if you buy X amount of goods. Though I'd just mention that.
