Another crazy week has made me a little lax on posting, and on shopping, but I have gotten in a few good deals!!! I plan to hit Publix a few more times before the sale cycle ends on Tues.
Took advantage of all of the free school supply goodies, and the free photo book which I made for our first wedding anniversary coming up next Sunday...in fact, I'm getting ready to go make another book for my friend's 30th bday present- coming up later this week! Since I had plenty of ECB's, I spent under $1 tax included for everything!
Tomorrow starts a new 3 day sale with another bunch of free school stuff- don't miss out!
I'm wayyyy too tired to list all of these out, but I was soooo proud of this shop and all of the overage I got from it! I would've repeated several of these deals already, but I had to leave town on short notice, so I'll get there again a few times before Tues, I hope!!
Everything in the back/right was stuff I needed, that wasn't necessarily on sale- soup, frozen veggies, fresh produce, and baked beans. If there isn't a good sale, I use overage to pay for store brand items (not always cheaper if there is a sale!!). The strawberries and blue berries were much more than last week, but I used a $2/$5 Food Lion coupon along with the overage to pay for it!
My total was around $4.50- a little over $1 before tax. I miscaluculated a bit because I had an extra bandaid coupon in my stack, so I threw in some more stuff to cover the amount the coupons would take off- otherwise I would've left an item out so my total before tax was as low as possible....still I shouldn't complain about it being a $1, right?! :o)
Visit I Love Publix to see her breakdown of deals- many of which are the same as mine!
This was my first Meijer "shop!" I was up in OH helping my bro out with a youth camping trip, and despite being exhausted and desparately ready to get home, I couldn't pass up a chance to use some coupons on their amazing clearance deals!
I've often stopped at Meijer to check out clearance, but I've never "grocery/coupon" shopped there!
I spent around $10 on all of this- not fantastic compared to my usual shops, but not bad either!
The Kraft dressing was a money maker- on sale for $1.50, used $1/1 coupons, and got back a $2 of your next order catalina!! And paid noooo tax! Yay, for no food tax in OH! :o)
I then took that $2 coupon and bought the strawberries -$.99 GREAT price!, Gold Star chili to take home (I stopped by the restaurant to eat my fave coney's too though- it is an addiction and a MUST when I'm in Northern KY or OH!) $1.99 on sale - cheaper than buying cans at the restaurant!, and some clearance candles, scrapbook stickers and the cute shell bowl which perfectly matches my house and was only $2.25!
It was a bit of a splurge because if I had truly been frugally shopping, I would've only gotten the salad dressing then 2 strawberries and a $.14 candle probably! However, I LOVE wandering around this store checking out all the clearance...believe me I could've done more damage, and several things when into my cart only to come back out later, since I'd promised myself I wouldn't spend more than $10!
