I ran in for Apple Juice. My kids are addicted to it. Thankfully I still dilute it but we go through it like it's water. I tried getting that Free Milk Coupon by purchasing one of those "New" GM cereals - it didn't work. Must be a typo.
1 Viva 8 Roll - $9.88 ($4/1 MFC)
2 Plumrose Bacon - BOGO @ $4.99 ($1/2 Shaw's Coupon)
1 Banana Nut Cheerios - $2.50 (.75/1 MFC DOUBLES)
3 Shaw's Apple Juice - 3/$5
1 Iceburg Lettuce - $1.79
1 Box of Clementines - $3.99 (4 Day Sale)
1/2 lbs Shaw's American Cheese - $3.05 (rip off)
1 lbs Shaw's Roast Beef - Sale $6.99 lb ($7.41)
1 lbs Margarita Salami - Sale $4.99 lb ($5.04) ($1/1 lbs MFC at Deli Counter)
Overall, not great. The husband has been asking for deli meat - and that alone ran me $14.50 and I got things on sale and had a coupon. I only did the Viva because I would have punched myself if I let a $4 coupon go to waste (bad, I know). Still, a 68% savings between Shaw's sales and coupons I used. Not bad.
Thanks to Mommysnacks at www.Mommysnacks.blogspot.com, I am tracking my grocery spending this year. I usually average about $70 a week at Shaw's but I never take into account my random BJ's purchases as well as WalMart or Target excursions on household products. This year, I'm trying to see if I can spend less than $5,000 on our groceries, beauty and household items. Diapers included.
