I often get asked what the infamous acorns on Southern Savers lists mean. Many times I find that folks are confused and think this points only only the deals to stock up on.
Actually all the deals on the list are good deals. I don’t list the entire weekly ad, because many items are actually really bad prices. Our goal in saving money is buy items at their lowest price (generally at least 40% off the regular price) and stock up on them. So I try to make sure after coupons the deals have hit that mark.
An acorn gets added if I think it’s a crazy deal. Sometimes the list of deals can be a mile long and I don’t want you to miss a freebie or 10¢ deal half way down the list. Enter the acorn, and now your eye can’t miss the awesome deal in the midst of the sea of deals!
Sometimes a list will have no acorns… that can mean two things. Either I didn’t see anything that was an amazing price or I just completely forgot to add acorns. Just remember, acorn or no acorn, if it’s on the list you are good to go ahead and grab the item today.
