Saturday January 15th Shopping Trip
With going back to work my grocery shopping habits have changed. I use to be able to drop my kids off at school on Monday morning, and spend Monday visiting all of the stores to get the greatest grocery deals. Unfortunately now I have to wait until the weekend to go shopping so my Saturday off is generally spent grocery shopping. This Saturday we went to Target, Walgreens, Meijer and Kroger. I did really good with my coupons this week and got some great deals. Here are the highlights of my trip:
Target was an easy trip with just four items on the list. Here is what I got:
2 Scrubbing Bubbles Power Sprayers marked down to $5.94, I used a $5 off coupon on each of them making them just 94 cents each
2 Shout Wipes to Go 4 packs - these were $0.97 each and I used a $0.55 coupon on each making them just 42 cents each
Total Coupon Savings $11.10
Total Out of Pocket $3.69
Walgreens was another short shopping trip and I while I did save it was nothing really super extraordinary.
I bought 2 bottles of Jergens lotion on save for $2.79 each and had a coupon for $3 off 2 making them just $1.29 each
I also bought Bic Soleil razors on sale for $4.99 each. I had a Buy One Get One Free Coupon on these, and received a $1 in register rewards making them just $1.98 each.
Total Coupon Savings $7.99
Total Out of Pocket $8.66
Plus a $1 in Register Rewards to use next week
Meijer was a bit of a disappointment for me. The chicken that I had planned on stocking up on was completely sold out so I had to get a rain check. Yes, I can get 6 bags of it next week but I was hoping to use chicken in our meals this week. Oh well.
Some of the best deals I got at Meijer this week were:
Kool Aid Jammers 12 boxes for $0.67 each after in store promotion
3 Activia 4 pack on sale for $1.88, used $0.50 coupon which they doubled making them just 88 cents each
Pillsbury Sweet Moments on sale for $2 used $1 off coupon making them $1 each
I also bought a ham, some milk, and Pillsbury cookie dough.
My total coupon savings was $20.05
Total Out of Pocket $33.76
Kroger was where I got most of my really good deals this week, with several items free or really cheap.
Here are the highlights:
2 packs of Carefree Pantyliners priced at $1.02 each, used a $0.50 coupon which they doubled making them just 2 cents a pack
3 packs of Schick razors on clearance for $3.49 each, used $2 off coupons making them $1.49 each
