What is a Grocery Store Loss Leader? How Does it Save Money on Groceries?

When I got on out on my own in the big bad world, I quickly learned that things cost money.  Shocking, I know.  I wanted to learn how to save money and eagerly dove in to read what everyone considers the epic and all time frugal living and money saving guidebook The Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dacyczyn (you can learn more about it here.) ( Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience .)  Despite the preachy tone in the later chapters of the book (when you can tell she admitted to be burned out on writing her newsletter in the 90’s) and a few of the now outdated tips (floppy disks!) there are still some decent frugal hacks in her book that are useful today.  For example, Dacyczyn’s  (she pronounces it like Decision )  greatest money saving tip is how to save money on groceries by only buying the Loss Leaders.  Only problem is Dacyczyn doesn’t tell you what  a loss leader is and how to find them in the  store.   Save this money saving idea to your Pinterest boards f

Rosemary Garlic Salmon Recipe

I love salmon. Love. It.

Salmon is considered one of nature’s superfoods because it’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and other important nutrients.  However, I used to get my Omega 3's from other more affordable types of fish because fresh salmon was beyond my budget.

Our fish intake increased close to the 20% per week USDA Dietary Guideline once I found Aldi and their super affordable fish. Frozen Aldi salmon is a regular thing now. I'd prefer fresh fish over frozen but I live in a land locked city. Fresh fish has to be brought in. It's really not as fresh as I used to get when I lived on Lake Erie. I stick with the budget friendly frozen salmon.


The folks at Sam's Club sent me this recipe. I don't normally post recipes I haven't created but it was so good I wanted to share it with you.

You are a lifesaver! My boyfriend's mom is coming to stay with us in a few weeks and I'm, of course, expected to cook a few delicious meals. She loves salmon so I've been searching for a good recipe that will wow her... thank you!
