My trips consisted of a few trips to ShopRite (you will see why below), a trip to Pathmark, a trip to Costco & an awesome trip to Target. Here is what I got.
I was able to snag 40 packets of Grill Mates for free (well actually $2.00). I don’t usually do this but I purchased 20 – $.50/1 coupons from ebay. We (NJ residents) did not receive the Grill Mates coupons in our inserts but I knew it was out there. When I saw the sale at ShopRite for $.49 with your price plus card I knew I had to get some coupons. I ordered 20. What I didn’t know was that ShopRite still doubled them so I was able to get 2 FREE Grill Mates with 1 coupons. That is how I got 40 and it was well worth the $2.00 I paid for the coupons. I had to make multiple trips as my ShopRite only lets me use 4 coupons at a time. If you have never tried Grill Mates, they are very good. We especially like the Mesquite when we cook steak.
Then I was off to Costco but I, unfortunately, forgot to take a picture. There was nothing much to see except milk ($1.99 gal), 3 doz eggs ($2.45), 2.75 lbs blueberries ($5.99), Strawberries ($5.99), Butter Lettuce ($2.99), 30 ct Fiber One bars ($9.49). Total spent $28.90.
Since I have been seriously couponing I don’t usually shop at Costco except for milk and eggs. I brought along the grocery store prices for the blueberries and strawberries to see how they compared and Costco was cheaper. I noticed the watermelon was over $5 and they have been on sale for much lower at the grocery stores so don’t always think you can get a better price at Costco. The Fiber One bars I usually wouldn’t have bought but one of my
kids husband was with me and he wanted them. Since I was under budget I figured I’d get them to make him happy. What a good wife 🙂
Then I went to Target. That is were I got an awesome deal.
I was able to pick up 2 boxes Kashi cereal and 2 boxes of Kashi bars for only $0.16.
More on that great deal so stayed tuned.
So my total for the weekend was $47.76.
$27.24 under my $75 weekly budget.
