Meijer Shopping Trip--Savings $106.83!!!

This week, Meijer had plenty of good deals to lure me into their store!! So I decided to do my weekly shopping earlier in the week armed with my coupons, list, and patience(because I shopped by myself!) so that I could take advantage of the majority of the deals! I was able to walk out of the door with only having to get one raincheck and did two minor flops(explain down below)! I also walked out the door having purchased $212. 58 of groceries for $105.75 and a savings of $106.83!!!

Here is what I bought....

All total my trip was $105.75 OOP!!!

At the top of Meijer receipt it has a "box" called "Savings Today", here is what it reads....

Total Meijer Promotions = $8.09
Total Non-Coupon Savings = $83.64
Total Coupon Savings = $15. 10
Savings TOTAL = $106.83

As for my two minor flops, I didn't purchase the $1 Crest Toothpaste like I thought I was so I didn't get toothpaste for free! However, with what I did purchase it was the same cost per ounce for the $1 Crest toothpaste if I hadn't had coupons for the toothpaste.

My other flop was forgetting to check my stash of coupons that I hadn't fully clipped out for more coupons, hence my forgetting my cookie mix coupon! I am very tempted to make a return trip just to get another cookie mix however, I would be wasting more $$ in gas for a 50 cent cookie mix so the coupon is good for a while so maybe one of the other local stores will have cookie mix on sale soon where I can use the coupon at that time.

If you are wanting to get some of the same coupons that I used in my shopping, check here where I have linked them already!

***as a side note, NONE of the coupons I used were doubled!! My area Meijer stores do NOT double coupons!!

To see other's great savings this week head over to Super Savings Saturday and Centsable Shopper Show & Tell !!!
