My first stop was A&P were I took advantage of the Buy xx Get xx deals. You can go here and here to see some of them. I also took advantage of the General Mills deal as well and picked up a few fillers and/or items on sale. Total spent: $14.03. Total Saved: $56.40
At Acme, when you purchase $25 worth of participating Kraft Foods you get a $5 catalina and then a rebate form prints out for you to submit to get $20 back. Nice deal and that is why I went to Acme. I have to tell you, it was a very nice store. The store was in Morris Plains, NJ. Great selection, well lit, clean, nice produce & meat dept. And they had coupons and lots of them at the customer service counter for you to take. And of course I did. I would definitely go back even though it’s 20 minutes away.
The total of this trip was $20.27 which includes the rebate I will get. Total saved: $99.32
Next onto Pathmark. I did another deal there with the buy xx get xx. You can see that deal here.
With all the deals I did this weekend I did not come home with any Catalinas. I kept rolling them into deals and then eventually using them to purchase great sale items. Like I did here at Pathmark with the Snapple and the 3 day sale items.
Total spent here $18.83. Total Saved: $60.99
I do have to say that what you CAN count on with ShopRite is always having good prices. The one good thing about waiting at the customer service dept is that I found this awesome calendar with rebate forms in it that I will post about shortly.
Bottom line is that I spent $15.78 here. Total Saved $6.95
All together my total came to $68.91 with a total saved of $223.66. That would have made a total grocery bill of $292.57 without sales or coupons.
The balance of my $75 budget I probably spent on gas driving to all these places but it was well worth it. I got a lot of stuff as you can see.
Hope you had a great shopping trip too!
