Before I recorded this video, I was just thinking about if I could have fast forwarded (from the past) to see myself talking about my groceries on video…I would have wondered what in the world I was doing. I mean seriously, who stacks up their grocery deals and steals and takes pictures and videos to share them with the world?!? Meee!!! 🙂 Every time I watch one of these videos after making it all I can say is WOW, I’m such a dork! But, hey…it’s me and I’m having fun rockin’ the deals, so why not share the fun?!? Here is how I did:
This Week’s Menu:
Hot Taco Dip
Total spent this week: $55.01
This Week’s Menu:
Whole Chicken, Pasta, Veggies
I decided to take it easy on the deals this week and only shopped at Safeway and King Soopers. It was a nice and much needed break. Here is how I did:
King Soopers: These items are not pictured, but I was able to get 8 gallons of milk and 16 boxes of cereal for a grand total of .80…yep that is 80 cents no typo! I’m going to miss that Kellogg’s deal. It was so much fun taking it all around to my neighbors that night.
Safeway: I spent an even $18 on everything pictured. I did the Frozen Food Month promo twice and also stocked up on the Pillsbury Grands and string cheese.
I think today was one of my best shopping trips in a while. I shopped at Sunflower Market, Rite Aid, King Soopers, and Safeway. Believe it or not…
Now that is a great start to the month, and it certainly added a lot to my stockpile! Make sure to check out all the great deals this week under the Stores Section on the right!
This week’s dinner menu consists of:
Hot Taco Dip
Steak, Potatoes, and Corn
Chicken Tetrazzini (I never ended up making this last week)
Meatloaf (same as above)
Alright, so I’ll take a moment to give you some more details on how I did it. 🙂 I do not have my receipts in front of me at the moment so, forgive me I’m going from memory.
I actually shopped at Safeway, and not Walgreens…that was a typo.
King Soopers: All of the items that I purchased at King Soopers are detailed in the King Soopers post HERE. I did the Buy 10 Save $5 promotion 4 times in this transaction. I also had a $2.50 pharmacy credit and I brought my own bags, those both helped to lower my total to just over $8.
Safeway: I actually made money at Safeway and purchased a gas card to cover the overage (this is YMMV, my store doesn’t have any issues with it, but some stores will ask you to purchase more items to cover overage). The money that I made paid for my King Soopers items and also paid for some of my Rite Aid items. I made money through my eCoupons (which I had several of), by using the Free item deals that were in yesterday’s paper to get my pre-coupon total up to $50, using a $10 off $50 purchase which they sent to me in the mail, and I had a $2.50 Catalina. I essentially made around $11.50 on my Safeway shopping. Everything else that I purchased is included in the Safeway post HERE.
Rite Aid: I made .50 on the two boxes Post cereal, by combining the $1.75 sale with $2 coupons. I also purchased shaving cream which will be .99 after SCR, sale, and coupon; and I bought the 4 Oral B toothbrushes for a total of $5 after SCRs and coupons. (These items will also help me to get my total up to $100 for the Go for the Gold Promo, but I didn’t include that in my calculations-if I did though I would have made.) Check out this week’s Rite Aid Deals HERE.
Sunflower: The only two items I got at Sunflower were tomatoes and an organic popsicle thing that my husband likes. I also brought my own bag which saved me .10. My total there was around $1.50. I so wish that it were possible to freeze tomatoes…that is just a awesome deal. Check out my Sunflower post HERE.
So there you have it in a nutshell, that is how I did it! I hope that these See Me Shop Sunday posts help to inspire all of you! I know when I first started couponing, I just didn’t believe that it was possible to save so much…now I know it is, because I do it every week…and I hope these posts help you to see it too!

So, we are starting a new feature on Bargain Blessings called “See Me Shop Sunday”! For the See Me Shop Sunday posts Alyssa and I will be sharing our shopping trips with you! I cannot guarantee we will be able to do a See Me Shop Sunday post every week, but we will try to do it as often as possible!
This week, I did my weekly shopping at King Soopers. I actually didn’t pay for anything in the picture because I used part of my $25 credit on my King Soopers card for buying a prescription using a competitor’s “Save $25 when you buy a transferred prescription” coupon. Did you know that King Soopers accepts competitor coupons in the pharmacy? They do! And it is a great way to get FREE groceries!
If you don’t include the pharmacy credit on my card, I spent a total of $8.38! Here is what I got:
5 bags of Birdseye Veggies (used .25 MQs that I got for e-mailing Birdseye to tell them I like their product)
8 Suave Deodorants (Free after MQ)
4 Halls Cough Drops (Free after IP)
4 Pillsbury Biscuits (.60 Money Maker after IP and 2 .30 Shortcut coupons)
4 Starkist Tuna (Free after IP)
2 Gallons of Milk ($1.99 each)
1 Half Gallon of Chocolate Milk (FREE-Notice that I got organic! The coupon did not specify a brand and the organic milk was $2.99. Always remember to read your coupons carefully so you can optimize them!)
1 Kroger Enchilada Sauce (It was cheaper than name brand)
1 Kroger Green Chiles (Same as above)
I also saved another .20 by using 4 of my own bags. Every little bit helps! You can view our entire King Soopers post HERE!
