So, I need to know…who bought all the Fantastik at my ShopRite?!? There was none to be found. So sad. Here is hoping they restock as I’m sure I’m going to be at ShopRite A LOT this week with all these awesome deals.
Yesterday I made 3 trips to ShopRite. Actually Pat made 2 and I made one. I kept sending him to try out deals in the morning. And I do have to say that he is quite good at it.
The first 2 trips were less then $1 out of pocket because I was rolling my previous catalinas. For this shopping trip I paid $30.18 out of pocket of which $21.76 was meat & fish. I was so excited to find some more 1/2 price manager special ground beef.
Also, during the day, I stopped at the Farmers Market and spent $42. I know wow, $42? I never spend that much at the Farmers Market but my daughter Nikki was home from college for the weekend and I took her there to get some fruits, veggies and nuts for her to bring back to her apartment at college as well as for us at home.
So, here was my shopping trip to ShopRite. And, I will be going back all week!

Update on my Grocery Budget:
Remember, I had not been shopping for about 4 weeks so my grocery budget had built up. Now I’m spending more each week but I’m still averaging less then $50 a week if you count the 4 weeks I hardly spent anything. And, over the last 3 weeks, I’ve been stocking up on a lot of meat. The break I took from serious couponing for 4 weeks was a much needed break and I feel ready to tackle these awesome deal.
Here is my progress now:
