Phew, it was quite the week in the grocery world. Hubbie and I decided to get a little creative with the picture as you can see. Here is how I did:
King Soopers: I had a rain-check for the Smart Balance eggs, so those were all FREE! Guess we will be eating a lot of eggs during the next two weeks! I also got a bunch of Cover Girl Nail Polish (a bit of a splurge at .70 each) and Shaving Cream as part of the P&G promo. my store didn’t stock the Old Spice, so I missed out on that deal. I also got some Tostios chips to go with our Hot Taco Dip tonight and a gallon of milk, carrots and a parsnip that were not included in the picture. I spent a total of $19.63 at King Soopers.
Sprouts: I we really impressed with the weekend deals at Sprouts! I got 3lbs of Granola for $3, 3 bottles of coconut nectar, 10lbs of potatoes, and 3 pineapples for $11!
Sunflower: I stocked up on a bunch of grapefruit for $1.40!
Safeway: Yeah, about Safeway…so what happened is I printed off all the coupons I could from our two computers and pulled out all my blinkies that I had left over from the last big cereal promotion at King Soopers. When I got to the store I grouped all my coupons into my separate transactions and realized that I would need to do 15 transactions to use all my coupons…what to do, what to do. Just then, my favorite store manager walked by and I checked with him to see if there would be any issues doing that many transactions. He had no problem, so off I went to grab another cart to load up. Now, before anyone bites my head off…yes, I will be donating almost all of this cereal, and no I didn’t clear the shelves…there was lots and lots left for everyone else. Normally I’d say that 60 boxes of cereal is just a tad excessive, but I figure, if I can get it for FREE and help others with it…why let the coupons go to waste? The manager was so kind to load it all up in gigantic trash bags and help me pile it in my car. I also got 6 boxes of granola bars, four bags of Wacky- Mac, and an Ace Bandage. After all was said and done I made $4.01.
