Weekly Grocery Trip--$99.75

Along with grocery shopping this week, I also went to my favorite thrift store and found some good finds!!

I wasn't going to do any shopping this week but I saw that there was some good deals that I just couldn't pass up! I also was able to redeem my raincheck for Warm Delights at Meijer this week! Those will definitely be something nice to use as part of a "stay at home date night" for hubby and me!

So here are my deals, despite no pics this week!

First stop, Meijer(read about this week's deals here!).....


  • 7 Warm Delights $7.00 with raincheck minus $2.10 in coupons =$4.90 or 70 cents each!!

  • 6 bags Freshlike frozen veggies $6.00
  • 4 boxes Banquet Brown N Serve Sausage links $4.00

  • 3 loaves Aunt Millies Bread $3.00
  • 1 Pillsbury Frosting $1.00 minus 40 cent coupon =60 cents!!
  • and if I would have been calculating better on the 10 for $10 get 11th free I would have gotten 3 more items off the sale to complete a 3rd group!! However, I was following my coupons and end total more than the groupings! Two weeks ago, I was one item short!! One of these time with this sale I will get it right!!!

  • 1-25.4 oz bottle Pert Shampoo $2.99 minus $3.00 coupon = 1 cent OVERAGE!!!
  • 2 bottles Pert Shampoo $5.00 ***looking at my receipt it appears that the $2.00 off coupon that I gave the cashier for this item did NOT get taken off my bill!!! UGH!! I gotta go back to handing them in groups again or watching them closely rather than putting my groceries in my cart!!***
