I wan’t overly thrilled at the sales this week so I only did one transaction and found myself pulling things out of the new coupon book too. I added a few things I needed to make those breakfast cookies I talked about and this is what I got:
-3 Deli Creations @2.00 (were 2.69) – for hubby’s lunch
-1 Rhodes rolls ($2.49)
-2 loaves white bread ($1.19)
-Capri Sun @$2.39
-Canola Oil ($3.29)- not on sale but I needed it!
-Skippy PB @$2.19
-Diamond Almonds @$2.19
-5 Gerber Baby Food @$1.00
-Skim Milk @$2.09
-1 Armour Maple sausage @$1.50
From the Bulk Food section:
-Jumbo dried Apricots $.81
From the coupon book:
.61 off both loaves of bread, .52 off the Skippy, .63 off the Armour sausage and >20 off the baby food.
THEN…$1 off the Capri Sun (doubled), Rhodes $1 (doubled), 3 Deli Creations $1 (doubled) and $1 off canola oil (not doubled)
$16.50 out of pocket for $34.02 in groceries…that means I saved 51%.
Not very good compared to my other trips BUT I picked up what I needed to make a big batch of those breakfast cookies which will replace about 10 boxes of cereal that I am not buying.
$100 for the month
$85.27 (as of week one)
$66.65 (as of week two)
-$2.53 from Target
This is good as I am going to need dog and cat food next week…
Next time I am at the store I will buy two $25 gift cards…then turn around and use them to shop – this will double my fuel perks rewards, but that is another story!
