Pin It Most of the people don't shop when they are sick. Apparently, not us!!! I swear, we went to every grocery store in the area this week. There is no way I could make pictures of my every shopping trip, so I only we'll post a couple.
4 Activia -49c ea after 50c sale discount and $1 coupon
2 Van de Kamps fish items- $2.99 after $1 coupon
2 packs of diapers- $5.99 ea after 50c sale discount and $3 peelies (from big boxes, my friend sent me a couple)
2 Lays chips(for future family get togethers)- $1.99 ea after 50c discount- I forgot a coupon for it at home but I will send my receipt for $4 back via beer MIR for $4/$4 on Salty snacks, so they will be free anyway.
Breyers ice-cream-$1.99 after $1 e-coupon.
Medium eggs-85c!!! No coupons used, that's their usual price, apparently. Even large eggs are only $1.10!! Now I know where I'm getting all my Easter eggs.
Anyway, total items purchased: 33
Total spent: $21.07 (after prescription discount, sales and coupons)
Total saved: $93.55!!- and will get $4 back after rebate
Coupons used: 16 (including 1 e-coupon)
I have another picture for you. This was my Winco trip. I got just a few items:
Total spent : $5.99
I was also in Harmons at the beginning of the week for some more frozen veggies (75c steamfresh ones after sale and coupon), Smiths( 3 California pizzas, I'll tell you more about this particular purchase next week. You'll see why...) and bunch of trips to Walmart for gas drops, pedialyte, apples, more apples and some other fruits and veggies, 3 packs Bar-S bacon for $1.99!! (price-matched to Kmart) and zillion more little things that are supposed to help you better when everyone is sick in the household.
So total spent between all these trips: $43.86
Total saved: $15.60
Coupons used: 6
Total spent this month: $191.97
Total saved: $238.95 (plus I will get $6.97 in rebates)
Left to spend this month: $58.03
YTD spending: $685.58
YTD savings: $497.92
YTD coupons used : 104
YTD waste: $27.18
Ouch, we have just a little over $50 left in our food budget! That will be tough...But at least, we have plenty of food. But that Smith prescription discount really helped...
