Reader Shopping Trip: ShopRite

Reader Leah shows that a night out with the girls can have a new meaning!

My sister-in-law and I were very excited to spend our “Girls Night Out” at ShopRite tonight, leaving our three young kids (each!) home with their daddies while we sipped Dunkin’ Donuts (there’s one in ShopRite!) and took our time finding the deals. Funny how when you’re a mom with a gaggle of little kids, a relaxed, CALM trip to ShopRite with a girlfriend qualifies as a wonderful evening out! And we were quite successful 😉

    Great Job! So the baby bucks is $10 off $50? and it can be applied before coupons? I have the entertainment book coupon for $5 off $50 can that be applied to a total of $50 before manufact. coupons?

    Thanks

    I think you’re right about the Ragu white sauces not qualifying…I didn’t get any cat’s for the ones I bought today…honestly, I wouldn’t have bought them had I known…oh well.

    Great pic. What is recycle bank?

  • Wow…now that’s a girls night out! I just found this site and so happy I did. Hope to learn alot from you all. Thought I was doing good with my coupons….but obviously not.

    That’s the best kind of girls’ night out, because you don’t feel guilty for all the money you spent afterwards! 😉
