My Super Meat & Cheese Shopping Trip

As usual, you all get to come into my kitchen and see what I bought this week.  I was going to stop posting them, thinking it was boring people, but I got so many emails asking me to keep them coming.  So, here ya go.

This weekend was actually pretty much a, gotta buy some meat, weekend.  I was really low on meat and needed to stock up on that as well as a few more non coupon items.  The great thing about the timing of this, was that I had $25 in rebate and catalina money to use from previous shopping trips.  So, it was like a big coupon 🙂
I needed to make a trip to Costco to pick up some items I get there often, like the romaine lettuce ($2.99 for a 6 pk), the Crystal Light (we drink it non stop), and picked up milk, eggs, a various other items.  Remember when you shop at places like Costco to be very careful.  Don’t let yourself get sucked into the “deals” they have.

Here I plunked down $40.79 and that included a roasted chicken which we had for dinner.Stopped at Pathmark to try out that Kraft catalina deal and it worked great.  Also used that $2.oo Post cereal coupon that just came out to score free cereal.  Love Free!  Always check the meat department for the managers special meats.  Picked up 2 packages of Italian Turkey Sausage for only $1.99 each.

Here I spent $.85 for $54.65 worth of groceries after using a $10 rebate & a $10 catalina.  And I got back a $5.00 catalina from the Kraft cheese.At ShopRite, I went just for some freebies, the Scrubbing Bubbles so I could submit my second SC Johnson rebate, and the meat that was on sale.  I’ll stop back there on Saturday to get more meat and take advantage of more of this weeks great deals.  Here I spent $22.63 for $57.25 worth of groceries after using a $5.00 catalina.  And then, I couldn’t resist to go back to Pathmark to get more cheese.  While I was there I tried the sour cream and that did not print a catalina, however, I only paid $1.00 for all 5 so no big deal.  Now I’ve got to find some good recipes with sour cream 🙂

Here I spent $3.90 for $27.90 worth of groceries after using a $5.00.  There would never be a day I would spend that much on that little.  Yikes!!

Total spent: $68.17 and have a $5.00 catalina and have enough meat for about 10 meals!
