Philadelphia Steals & Deals Gas Prices No Relief by HelpfulHannah

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

Let's talk about finding some bargains in the rising economy. Forget about finding a good price on gas as the prices are going up daily. There are is still no relief in sight for the price of gas.  Yesterday regular was $5.05 and today it is $5.11  premium was $5.65 the next day it was $5.85 -  

Let's talk about brighter things the extra 25 cents you are paying at the Dollar Tree are bringing better merchandise to the stores: This week I found great deals 3 mesh zippered laundry bags for delicates I put my bathing suits in three for $1.25 A real Deal, Laundry baskets,  there was also all the utensils you would need to BBQ and they were good quality too!  Great condiments to put on everything you BBQ including dijon mustard, yellow and brown deli-style mustard $1.25 - let's not forget BBQ sauce ketchup and Vlastic relish. Miracle Whip and mayonnaise could also be found as well as Annies Creamy Goddess salad dressing in a large bottle. Glad & Hefty zip-top storage bags. Plus so much more even top brand deodorants and soaps -  You may want to pick up some of their reader glasses while you are there to make sure you do not miss Steals of Deals for $1.25 Do not forget popcorn buckets

Here is a video from YOUTube Showing Junes Deals 

From the Deal Guy for Dollar Tree 

The next place I stopped was Produce Junction they have many locations I went to the Bensalem location as it is close to one of my office . I was thrilled that I did. First off I love tomatoes I purchased a sugar-sweet 12oz $2 called wild wonders which were  multi-colors.  They cost $4 elsewhere and I eat them as snacks but also great in salads. Another bag of six ripe multi-colored tomatoes sweet & large $2 that I made tomato salad with fresh mozzarella (kept one out for sandwich w/miracle whip) 6 zucchini large $2 and a huge bunch of cilantro more than I will use $2  and 2 English cucumbers $1.50 - bananas 5 pounds $2----(HannahBanana Bread ) 


There was also the amazing deals on plants $10 on the most beautiful planted potted flowers think they are in the petunia family I purchased 3 and one hanging gorgeous hanging basket for $7 . Two of my friends and neighbors saw them and went over and also came back with a car full of flowers.

Last for this week was Ross Dress for Less  I went to dinner with my friend Lynn and she had found a handbag there.It was  locked up and when she left forgot to purchase it. I said I would go back with her. It was a Patricia Nash handbag for $49 perfect for the summer in a crossbody style. We both also purchased garden planters. She a nice whale and I purchased matched Budda heads which I have seen elsewhere for $40 each were $17 I think I will plant Cala Lillies in them if I can still find them. I also scored a large quality laundry bag $10.98. 

That is all for shopping there are no Steals and Deals in Real Estate

Hello Hannah, I have a Dollar tree close to my house and never been in there before.  I will make it a point to go there.  Trying to keep driving to as little as possible.

Hi Hannah... I purchased two pots of geraniums this morning... $15 a piece and it's taken me weeks to find some. Past years I'd buy them at two for $15! This is when you feel supply chain issues and inflation. Fortunately, our gas is still under $5.00, but I don't know how long that will last.

Nina Hollander, Broker just went to brunch with two friends it cost us $85 we were double taxed for things and charged extra for every little item. The last time we had brunch at  a similar place it was $65-

As of this morning, gas is up to $5.01 here, and doesn't seem to be any stopping point...Grrr! Dollar tree is not a store I have ever been in Hannah. Are there really any deals for an actual $1.00? Good luck this week on your closing at the 10 acre commercial - Wow!

Yes Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 Dollar Tree has great deals but it cost $1.25  you will be surprised - try it!

Hannah, I bought gas last week - 4.65, today was 4.79 a gallon.   No deals in gas, and have a few buyers right now.

Gas is rising in price every day Joan Cox and personally, I do not know where everyone is going?  Glad to hear you have a few buyers 😍 with you as their agent I am sure they will find a house

Hannah  I love your posts just on a side note I will not show you the prices we pay for Gas....Endre

Hannah Williams

Endre Barath, Jr. I was really counting on you telling me. Are you paying more than we are?  Much of the money in my area is state tax 57cents per gallon. Now I understand that they do need the money to repair the highways so if I see holes you better believe I will be reporting them.

I find myself really appreciating the special deals I find during this surge in inflation.  I'm also clipping a few more coupons, and loving it!

Hi Hannah- we're at about $4.69 for regular gas here. Those plants look pretty darn good for $10.00!

Jun 12, 2022 06:57 PM
Hannah Williams

Kathy Streib I love them and could not resist them plus they filled a hole in my lawn where I could not grow anything because it is all river rock These also came in a nice pot for $10 -  another place had the similar plants 2 for $40

Hannah Williams , I thought our prices would slow or stop at $5.00 a gallon.  Did not even take a second look and now over $5.  I will not tease myself with predictions.  Mark

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho They are going up daily and will continue to. Plus the roads are packed. From what I see people are not changing their driving habits

I don't think anyone is happy about the price of gas these days, other than the people selling it.

Hannah Williams - Congratulations on the merging! I wish you all success and prosperity. A one for all and all for one mentality is exactly how life should be. Your gas prices are considerably higher than mine right now and I am not happy about paying more each time I fill up either. What I like about you is that you consistently make lemonade out of lemons. On the bright side, your bargain shopping sprees gives people hope. Hannah, you are the sunshine in NE Philadelphia!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP we now have nine local offices which are so convenient especially when you work from referrals. This week I have found some wonderful deals. I hope you will check them out.
