Before the crazy snowstorm on Saturday morning, I went to ShopRite along with the rest of Livingston. Yikes was it crowded. I was hoping to take advantage of the Kellogg’s (buy 10) but they did not have token boxes so that was a bust. I bought 3 and got a free milk anyway. Then I headed off to Walgreens to take advantage of the John Freida deal and the Complete. I also got 2 cases of water but we apparently forget to put it in the picture. Between the 2 stores I spent $17.47 out of pocket but have $3.00 in catalinas from ShopRite and $8.00 register reward from Walgreens for $82.97 worth of groceries.
Then to Pathmark for a few items and of course hitting the meat aisle for those manager specials. Not super great but I did get a couple of meats. Here I spent $26.19 for $67.06 worth of groceries. I’m sorry, but who in their right mind would pay $67 for that. Yikes!! I thought the $26 was a lot but I did get 3 packages of meat in there so I feel better.
And then tonight I headed back to ShopRite for a few of reasons. One, the Nature’s Pride coupon was reset and I wanted to get more bread since it was only $.09 a loaf, also because I needed some deli meat and cheese as will have three kids hanging around the house eating food throughout the day and lastly, because I needed to get the rest of the ingredients for my baking. Oh yeah, and more free cereal. Here I spent $45.17 for $80.79 worth of groceries. And, I got $2.00 back in catalinas from the Post cereal. Not the greatest savings but I bought some things I don’t usually buy and honestly didn’t use a whole lot of coupons. But, it’s Christmas and as long as I didn’t spend more then I had in my pocket, I’m happy. Speaking of that, let’s see what my total was…
The grand total is …$88.83. Not too bad. Keeping the extra money from the grocery budget from week to week when I am under budget really helps for weeks like this one. I actually thought I spent more then that. And also remember, I have $8.00 register reward from Walgreens and $5 in catalinas from ShopRite. All of which I will use next week. Now, I’ve just gotta get baking.
