Sometimes when I go food shopping I just don’t feel like going. The thought of gathering up my coupons and writing up my shopping list is, well, boring. But then sometimes I am so excited about going because I feel like I’m going to score some great deals. And this was one of those weekends.
Now it wasn’t those catalina deals where you walk away with more money then you started with. Those don’t happen all the time. But it was one of those shopping trips that you squeal with excitement after you find out your total. Or is that just me? I’m sure I’m not the only coupon crazy squealer around. Come on, admit it, you squeal too. Here is why I squealed this week.
For what I considered to be a week that really didn’t have that many great deals, I think I did awesome. At ShopRite I was able to get $99.88 worth of groceries for only $31.58. Do I hear a squeal? Now mind you, there was 1 lb of $6.99 per pound turkey from the deli, 1 gallon of milk, 2 roasted chickens & 2 lbs of Tilapia in the mix.
So the joke in my house is that we have enough cereal to feed our entire town. The sad thing is, I probably could do that. However, when you have a son that eats 3 bowls of cereal a day, that town is really right in your own house. My can he eat a lot.
At Pathmark, I used a lot of their store coupons to score some really great deals. I wanted the pork loin that was on sale but it was gone by the time I shopped. So, I’ll be hitting Pathmark sometime during the week for the pork.
Here I spent $12.23 for $65.24 worth of groceries. Do I hear another squeal?
My totals for the week were $43.81 for $165.12 worth of groceries. Squeal, squeal!!
