I know that I will not get any blue ribbon for the most savings and/or least cash spent out of pocket(oop) for the week, however, I still saved $70 on groceries!!! (Sorry no pics this week, cause I put it all away before I realized that I didn’t take pics!) I needed to get meats for meals for the next couple of weeks and I need to do some restock of fresh fruits and veggies.
Instead of listing everything that I purchased this week I am just going to give some highlights of my deals.
I took advantage of Meijer 10 for $10 with 11th item free Mix and Match Sale and purchased some stock up items…
5 Gatorade $5.00
3 Ragu Pasta Sauce $3.00
6 Totino’s Pizzas $6.00 minus $1.00 for Free item
I also purchased 4 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls--$6.00 which yielded one Catalina coupon for a Free Pillsbury Ready to Bake cookies. Actually my Meijer trip yielded me lots of Catalina coupons that is about the only big highlight of my trip!! LOL!
I found that my Meijer had a trial size of Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion so I got that for FREE after $1 coupon.
I restocked my yogurt supply with the Yoplait Yogurt that was on sale 10/$5 and used coupons to sweeten the deal even more. :)
I checked the discounted meats and purchased a couple of steaks for a dinner for hubby and me. I purchased 3 family packs of the boneless skinless chicken that was on sale for $1.99/lb. I also got 3lbs of the ground chuck that was on sale for $1.79/lb.

I also made a quick run into Family Fare again this week. I like their selection of fresh fruit and veggies better than Meijer.
They also had all Keebler Cookies 50% off plus I had 2 coupons(55 cents/2 and $1/1) so I got three packages for $3.38 or $1.13/pkg.
I also purchased 3 pkgs. of Spartan(store brand) bacon for $5. This will make some cheap 44 cents breakfast sandwiches or homemade bacon cheeseburgers or homemade chicken club sandwiches!!!
All total I spent oop $36.67 and saved $18.65(best I can figure because they don’t put the savings total on the receipt like Meijer).
**side note, just in case you are wondering after my questioning stockpiling post, I have decided for the health of my budget and my marriage that I am going to refrain from CVSing or Walgreens shopping til my pantry needs stocked again! Which best I can figure will be at least a couple of months! :)
