Easter is around the corner and plenty of local grocery and drug stores are rolling out the sales for everything from hams to tulips. I want to focus on the goodies to fill those Easter baskets with.

Nothing’s better than dyeing eggs. Head to Target where a dozen large eggs are on sale for 99 cents. Whether you’ll dye them or just scramble them, that’s a good price. Target also has egg dying kits for $1.50. Several other stores also have sales on egg dying kits, including Rite Aid where they’re all 25 percent off with your Wellness+ Card.

Lots of stores have been hot and heavy on the free gift cards when you buy a giftcard.Here’s htis week’s hot deal in this realm: If you’re in the market for an iTunes gift card, head to Kmart. You’ll get a $5 store gift card if you buy a $25 iTunes gift card.

If you’re hosting your own Easter dinner, don’t be the person that focuses so much on the main course that you forget the other courses. That means salads, fruit, veggies and of course, dessert.

Redner’s Warehouse Markets has a deal where you can get a free pineapple when you buy two Fresh Express salads. And if you’ll have pies on the menu for your Easter meal, don’t forget the whipped topping. Redner’s has Cool Whip for $1 a tub. Price Chopper has 9 inch gourmet pies for $7.99. Lemon meringue more your style? Price Chopper has 8 inch pies in that variety for $3.99.

Sheetz has rolled out new Shnack Wraps on their Made To Order Menu and they’re on sale two for $4 right now. Grab a pair and enjoy. While you’re there, use your My Sheetz Card and buy a can of Mountain Dew Kickstart and get a free hash brown.

Speaking of Kickstart, head to Walgreens this week and buy one for 99 cents and get 99 cents back from Regsiter Rewards. Check your receipt for the coupon.

A great place to watch a sporting event and enjoy the food and drinks is TGI Friday’s. Now, each Thursday, enjoy a selection of appetizers and mixed drinks for $3 each. Among the appetizers included are crispy fried green beans, BBQ chicken flatbreads and Tuscan spinach dip. On the drink side, there’s signature Long Island iced teas, margaritas and mojitos.

This Wednesday, head to Baskin Robbins and get a free two-scoop sundae for free when you purchase one.

OK, enough with the food deals, they’re making me way too hungry.

The stores are located on Kidder Street in Wilkes-Barre, across from the Wyoming Valley Mall, and on Main Street in Dickson City.

Congratulations to the nearly two dozen readers who responded to last week’s trivia question asking what material was used for the bristles when Doctor West’s Miracle Toothbrush was introduced in 1938. Denise Godumski of Warrior Run was randomly selected from those with correct answers and will receive a free Justin Bieber Brush Buddy that plays two of his songs while you brush. Thanks to the company for supplying the brush.
