We’re excited to announce that we’ll be featuring a new weekly summary of Milwaukee area grocery deals provided by money saving blog Frugal Gossip.  Starting tomorrow, Frugal Gossip will be providing Milwaukee Consumer readers with a rundown of the week’s best grocery deals in the Milwaukee area.  Frugal Gossip is written by Milwaukee area resident Kim.  Kim guest blogged for us last weekend, and we have asked her to make it a regular feature. 

Every Saturday, Frugal Gossip will give an analysis of weekly grocery deals at stores such as Pick ‘N Save, Sendik’s Market, Walgreen’s and Target.  In addition to the deals, Kim matches up sale items to the weekly Sunday paper coupons.  These coupon matchups can result in tremendous savings (even free items in some cases). 

The weekly Frugal Gossip posts will focus primarily on grocery deals.  For information on deals at other stores including Menards, Kmart, Staples and others, check out the Frugal Gossip website.
