I did a pretty big trip at Shaw's yesterday. I saved just over 50% with coupons and Shaw's savings - but I did buy a lot of stuff for the husband that wasn't on sale. Again - can't argue with the bread winner when he wants bologna, coffee cakes and chocolate covered donuts.... Plus - it's really hard to save 50%+ when you throw in produce and meat. Seriously - that's the reality.
Anyways - I used over $60 in coupons yesterday. I got them all from Boston area newspapers, All You and other random places. I'm too lazy to print out coupons. Here are some of the "hot" finds I got using my coupons. These sale prices are good through Thursday. The thing that really sucks about Shaw's is that they don't put all of their sales in their flyer - so you have to go kind of armed with your coupons and see what is out there.
For Starters - I had a $9/$90 coupon that Shaw's mailed me.
1.7 lbs Hormel Pork Tenderloin - Reg. $11.49. Sale $9.99. There were peelies on some for $3.00 off (exp. date is 5/29 - so not sure why the peelies). Used $1/1 MFC from paper. $5.99 for that delicious pork tenderloin.
2 1-lbs rolls of Shaw's Ground Beef 80/20 - $3.89 ea. $2/2 Shaw's Coupon. $2.89 each - threw them in the freezer. The husband digs chili and this will come in handy (even though it's super fatty - yuck).

Lastly, there were a lot of hair products (scrunchi's, bands, clips, etc.) that were 70% off. This sale is good until 9/25 - so they are probably just trying to liquidate some of their selection. This was at the Weymouth Shaw's - not sure if other Shaw's are participating.
Happy Shaw'sing this week!
