Today was crazily filled with shopping and I had quite the time. I still even made it home in time to gt the family off to church. Talk about super Mom! Here’s how I did at each store:
CVS- Total OOP: 2.29 Savings: 24.77. I got 3 papers, 2 right guard deos, almay shadow, and a 9-pack of charmin. We totally needed the charmin so I knew that I would have a “high” OOP because of it. I used coupons for everything except the papers. I used 15.69 in ECBs and got back 7(ouch!) but that was just on one card. I love having multiple cards
WAGs- Total OOP: 0.00! Savings: 24.92. I got my WAGs gift card just yesterday, so that helped make my OOP equal zero. Before the gift card, I owed 2.75. I got crest toothpaste, 2 glide flosses, 2 softsoaps, electrasol tabs, and 3 butterball chicken broths(to finish my conagra rebate). I had coupons for everything except the broth and I had a 10.00 RR.
Stop and Shop- Total OOP: 12.29 Savings: 7.96. I just needed to get cranberry juice from here. Ocean spray cran energy and apple and eve were on sale there this week. I had coupons for all and I also got a half watermelon for .54 a pound. Since I know thats gonna be gone by like tuesday thanks to DH, I may go back and get another before the sale is done.
Shop rite- Total OOP: 33.12 Savings: 32.00. This was my favorite trip of the day. Check out the great deals I got from there:
4 electrasol tabs(20 ct)- on sale 2.34- 4 coupons for .50 doubled- 1.34 each
4 franks red hot sauce- on sale 1.59- 4 coupons for .50 doubled- .59 each(these were the big bottles, not the little ones)
2 French’s brown mustard- on sale .69- 2 coupons for .50 off plus .19 off(couldn’t give overage)- FREE
7 cans bush’s grillin beans- on sale 1.25- 7 coupons for 1.00 off- .25 each
3 boxes of Carolina rice(2lb box)- on sale 1.59- coupon for .35 doubled-.89! So I got 6 pounds of rice for 2.67! My favorite deal of the day!
2 silk soy milk half gallons- on sale 3.00- 2 coupons for 2.25 off- .75 or 1.50 for a gallon of soy milk!
2 packs butterball turkey bacon- on sale 1.24- 2 coupons for 1.00 off- .24 each!
I also got 2 dozen store brand eggs, a gallon of organic milk and more ground beef for 1.99 a pound. The crazy part is…..I’m not done shopping for the week. Some of the coupons I needed for this week’s deals just came out this sunday, so I clipped them all today and will use them at my second trip to Shop Rite and my first trip to A&P for this week. I’m so glad I had 52 extra dollars left from last week’s budget. With Mother-In-Law coming on saturday, I have to make sure we are fully stocked. I don’t want her to want for anything and because she’s the best, I want to make sure I get things that I know she will like…..especially if they are on sale :o)
