For the rest of this week’s Piggly Wiggly sales and coupon match-ups, check out Coupons for Wisconsin.
Things to remember:
- This weekly match-up is for Olsen’s in “Green Bay” (Howard).
- At Olsen’s (not Larry’s) manufacturer’s coupons will be doubled up to and including $1.00 up to ten per $25 transaction Friday-Saturday-Sunday. To see if your store is participating and to print your Double Coupon Savings Pass, click here and pick Weekly Specials.
- Piggly Wiggly stores are independently owned and their ads occasionally don’t match up, check your store ad for prices.
- Their coupon policy can be found here but again, because each is independently owned and operated, you should check your store’s policy as well.
- At Green Bay area stores, you will need to have a Preferred Club Card to get some of the deals. There are also “Pig Points” that you can earn with the Preferred Club Card. Those points can be redeemed for gas at participating Renew gas stations, or discounts on sale items. For more information on the Pig’s Preferred Club card, click here.

I then whittled my list down to about three dozen different items which included everything from:
- peanut butter
- loaves of bread (white and whole grain)
- I also included all sorts of popular “dead animal” choices like
- boneless skinless chicken breast
- pork chops
- ground beef, chuck or round, etc.
Based upon their answers, I shopped all the major grocery stores in our area to find out who had the best regular prices. (You can see those results here). Because let’s face it, shopping the sales isn’t enough these days. It’s what you put in your cart that isn’t on sale that can make a big difference, too!
A lot can happen in two years. For one thing, my family has completely changed our shopping strategies. Target now carries groceries. Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly now doubles coupons and has increased the size of their store. We’ll be getting a Costco in the fall.
I was thinking about doing the research again to see if there was any differences. Is that 2011 informal study still relevant?
So I’m asking you: what are your grocery must-haves? Help me decide which items need to be on the list!
