Occupy My Wallet: Day 21

Ahhh!  I cracked people.  I couldn't take the pressure.  I went to Stop & Shop and bought non-perishables. I'm a junkie.  My last "real" grocery store trip was December 27th - so I made it 25 days without buying stuff for the cabinets.  I don't know what got into me - I needed a break from the family?  I needed a high?  I was sick of the snow?  Well regardless - I did it.  I admit it.  I have no shame.

I spent $79 and saved $71.  Not great - but I did buy about $20-$30 in produce that didn't have a great markdown.  I went to Stop & Shop and if you are hitting them up this week, here are some of the coupon deals I got:

Hood Cottage Cheese - Reg. $2.99, Sale $2.50 ($1/1 MFC from paper) $1.50


6 Nabisco 100 Cal Snacks - Reg. $3.19, Sale $1.99 (2 $3/3 MFCs from paper) .99 cents per box - or .17 cents per snack.

2 Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti - Reg. $1.65, Sale $1 ($1/2 MFC from paper) .50 cents


4 Chi-Chi's Salsa - Reg. $2.59, Sale $1.66 (2 $1/2 MFCs from paper) $1.16 each


2 Chi-Chi's soft taco tortillas - Reg. $1.89, Sale NONE ($1/2 MFC) $1.39 per pack

4 Prego Lights - Reg. $2.59, Sale $2.00 (2 $1/2 MFCs from paper) $1.50 each (not a good price - but needed tomato sauce - S&S sauce is on sale for $1.25 a jar and it's pretty good)


2 Scott Toilet Paper 4-pack - Reg. $4.19, Sale $3.50 (2 $3/1 MFCs received for providing feedback on website).  .50 cents each


4 Welch's Grape Juice 64 oz. - Reg. $3.15, Sale $2.50 (4 $1/1 MFCs) $1.50 each

So I spent $80 yesterday.  But that was all.  Still working on eating out of my cabinets.

Making it 25 days without shopping is fantastic.
