I did two transactions yesterday and stayed pretty close to what I said I was looking at. This is what I got:
-4 Starkist Tuna @ 1.09
-2 Rhodes rolls ($2.29 each)(were $2.49)
-5 Budget Meals @1.29 (hubby’s lunch)
-5 salmon portions @ 1.00 (were $1.50)
-5 scallops @ 1.00
-2 Tilapia portions @ 1.00
-2 Drumstick frozen treats @ $2.50 (were $2.99)
-3 V8 Fuision Juice @ $3.19
-2 skim milk @ $1.88 (2.05 normally)
$.82 came off all budget meals as store promos…$1/5 budget meal (doubled), 2 Starkist $1/2 (doubled) 2 Rhodes $1 (doubled), 2 Drumstick $1 (doubled), 3 V8 Fusion $1 (doubled), my $3 off coupon from last week.
$18.62 out of pocket for $53.44 in groceries…that means I saved 65%.
Not great compared to my other trips BUT I had planned to stock up on a bit of seafood. I thought the prices great and think we will see them go fairly high if they can’t contain that oil spill…I can use one packet of scallops to make a seafood fettucini, or flake one salmon to make a creamy sauce with peas and onions for puff pastry shells.
Those 12 packs = 12 creative seafood dinners AND I still have the tuna to use! (keep in mind that tuna has so much mercury in it now that they recomment NOT giving it to small chldren very often…)
$100 for the month
$85.27 (as of week one)
$66.65 left to spend!
I will share with you tomorrow what I have planned for my next trip!
