And So It Begins…Cheap Bastard II Research Starts Now

February 20, 2013

The CB is still negotiating the contract, but it looks like there will be a second edition of the Cheap Bastard’s Guide to Seattle and that the CB will be doing the research. The CB’s alter ego, David Volk, also faces a series of additional tough deadlines in the coming weeks, so round-ups are going to be a fact of life for a while. There may also be times when deals are a bit thin so that he can bring you even better deals in the new book.

If you know of any great deals that go on year-round, please share them with the CB. If he includes them in the book, he’ll mention your name in the acknowledgement section of the book and give the people with the top 5 suggestions wonderfully kitschy prizes. The best will get a free copy of the book.

Now, on with the deals:

CLUCK, CLUCK, SAVE SOME BUCKS AT WHOLE FOODS–It’s another Friday deal at Whole Foods Market. This time around it’s whole chicken for $1.99 a pound. If there’s a run on these little guys, I guess you’d call it a poultry slam.

WILL READ FOR FOOD…OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT–If you live in Tacoma and have run up substantial overdue fines at the Tacoma Public Library, there’s some good news. The CB hears that the library will take food bank donations in place of fines. It’s a limited time offer. More to come.
