I went to Shaw's today, primarily for Rice Krispies and the Betty Crocker Cookie Frosting. They were out of both. I'll go back later on in the week to get them. I got some things that were noteworthy!
2 Fresh Express Salads - BOGO @ $3.49 ($1/2 Shaw's coupon) = $1.25 each!
8 lbs of potatoes - $2.49 = .31 cents a pound!
1 lbs Margarita Genoa Salami - $4.99 (.60/1 lbs DOUBLES) = $3.80!
2 Tropicana OJs - $2.48 ea ($1/2 Store Coupon) = $1.98 ea!
2 Nestle Chocolate Chips - 2/$5 ($1/2 MFC)
4 Goldfish - B2G2 Free @ $2.19 = $1.10 ea.
1 Kraft Shredded Cheese - $2.50 ($1/1 MFC)
Things I Needed/Impulse Buys
1 big Shaw's Oats - $2.89
Coffee Filters - $1.89
Shaw's Onion Soup Mix - .88 cents
Shaw's Sour Cream - $1
2 pkgs Shaw's Marshmallows - $1 ea
This was definitely not spectacular by any means. I worked the Shaw's circular more than coupons. There just wasn't much on sale that matched up to coupons I had (or things I would use). I had to get the sour cream and onion soup mix because we still have the potato chips from the BOGO sale last week and I've been craving dip. This is a good example how GENERIC brands are sometimes cheaper than name brands. For instance, Hood has a coupon out there for $1/2 Sour Creams - but at $2.49 at my store, even with the coupon, the generic was still cheaper. $1 for a medium sized container of sour cream is a steal!
