Reader Victoria made a trip to ShopRite. I don’t know about you but I can just feel her excitement from her email!
All I can say about this trip is WOW! I can not believe a little more than a year ago I was going to the store and paying full price for groceries. I actually forced my husband to go with me to the store (pre coupons) because he could not believe that all that money was being spent to groceries,lol!!!
This trip was a combo of coupons and the last of my “gift of savings” catalinas. Without your web site I would not have been able to do this…..I used to watch with envy those TV shows that would highlight a shopper raking in the values. You have made it so easy by providing the match ups. OK so here is how it went:
(4) betty Crocker fruit snacks 1.50 each
(8) Ronzoni Quick Cook Pasta .40 each
(6) Red Pack Tomatos 3/2 each
(1) Gallon Milk 3.59
(20) Yoplait yogurts .39 each
(3) Arizona Ice Teas 1.99 each
(4) Rice Dream Milk 1.99 each
(1) 18 ct Eggland’s Best Eggs 3.49
(4) Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa .88 each
(3) Loaves Bread 1.69 each
(2) Packs of sliced cheese 1.77 each
(2) Zatarains Rice Mix 1 each
(4) Nature Valley Granola Bars 2.50 each
(2) 32 oz Stonyfield Farms Yogurt 3.79 each
(1) Ronzoni Pastina 1.25
(6) Pepperidge Farm Fish Crackers 3/5 each
(1) Ralston Cream of Wheat 1.99
Total without price plus card 149.20
Total with Price Plus 103.52

-47.50 “gift of savings” catalinas (I go late at night and on most weeks was able to use all in one transaction…..I have a really coupon friendly manager,lol)
