may day giveaway, and market basket trip

A blog about saving money seems to be a good place for a giveaway, and so we're joining other New England Bloggers for the May Day Giveaway Carnival. There's sure to be lots of great prizes. Here on Penny-Wise People, we're giving away a set of three brand new children's books. Click here for more details and to enter to win the books!

We stopped by Market Basket this morning after dropping our son off at school - they have Annie's Naturals on sale this week. We think Annie's is great (our son especially enjoys the macaroni and cheese), and they use lots of organic ingredients which is awesome. The mac and cheese is on sale for $1.00/box (save $1.00 off regular price when you buy three), and the dressing is 2/$5.00 (save $1.98 on 2). As usual with Market Basket, you can buy as many or as few of the sale items as you wish, and still get the sale price. Love that!

Total spent at Market Basket today for 6 boxes of mac and cheese and 1 bottle of salad dressing: $8.50
Pennies saved: 549
