I grabbed my coupon box and kiddo and got the following today:
1 slushie $1.25 (keeps the kid in the cart while I shop…)
8 jars of Ovaltine @ $3.03 each
I Kikkoman soy sauce @ $1.29
1 loaf wheat sandwich bread @ $1.29
1 Simply Apple Juice @ $1.22
Coupons used: eight $1 off Ovaltine, $1 off Target brand bread, $1 Simply juice, $1 off Kikkoman … and $.50 off that slushie.
Grand total $17.83.
I know this looks high but Ovaltine was $4.53 at the grocery store – for the same sized jar and I haven’t seen it go on sale for a long time…that would be $36.24 for 8 jars…so I look at this trip as spending $17.04 and getting $41.29, saving 57% or $23.50.
He now has 10 jars of his treat and that should hold him a while
Ms Sarah and I shall have that apple juice at snack time today…yum!
Here are the figures for the month:
-9.92 – first Target run
-17.83 – second Target run
$72.15 to go
Now this will shock you — we are going to go out to eat over the next week. Twice.
We will do the deal I mentioned at Noodles N Company with the candy and then, next week, we are going to Rocky’s for a B1G1 Super Slice. He will eat a slice and have a soda by himself…we will split the other slice and a one trip salad bar with our water.
I should still come out WELL under budget this month when factoring in 2 meals out…I am perusing the new Copp’s add for a Wednesday plan of attack and know I really only need the basics: milk, bread and eggs this month. Yippee!
