Weekly Shopping Trip ---$119.42

After 3 weeks of eating mostly out of my pantry and freezer, I actually had to get meat this week. My totals are a little higher than I wanted them to be because of having my MIL here for 4 1/2 days and needing meat but it was manageable. I should be able to squeak out more than just one week's worth of food!

Here is what I purchased this week(sorry no pics--my MIL is in town so I had help putting away!)

Meijer Shopping Trip....(I picked up several of the deals that I listed!)

  • 3 loaves Aunt Millies Bread $3.19(2 loaves free)
  • 4.79lbs Whole Porkloin $9.06
  • Meijer Seasoned Salt $1.33
  • 6 boxes Kraft Mac & Cheese $2.97
  • 2-50oz Meijer Applesauce $3.00
  • 1 Cantaloupe $2.00
  • 6 cans Meijer green beans $2.40
  • 6 cans Meijer green peas $2.40
  • 2 pkgs English Muffins $2.50
  • 4 lbs Quick Frozen Tilapia $11.98 minus 2-$2.00 Meijer Mealbox coupons = $7.98 (2lbs free)
  • 4 tubes Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls $6.00
  • 4 bags Meijer Hashbrowns $8.00 minus 4-$1.00 Meijer Mealbox coupons = $4.00
  • 2 boxes Toaster Strudel $3.60 minus 2-55 cents coupons = $2.50
  • 2 Tombstone pizzas $6.66
  • 2 Yoplait Yogurt Kids Drink Smoothies $4.00 minus $1.00/2 coupon = $3.00
  • 2-4lb bags Quick Frozen Boneless/Skinless Chicken Tenders $14.98(1 bag free)

Total: $73.97
Savings Total: $63.42

My MISTAKE @ Meijer....Not giving the cashier my Catalina coupon for $5 off/$75 purchase BEFORE giving her my coupons!!!! UGH! I have been kicking myself for the last THREE days about this goof! She wouldn't take it after my coupons because my total was under the $75.00!!! UGH! Lesson learned to look at total BEFORE I hand over my coupons!!!!


Family Fare trip...
  • approxiamately 14lbs of 91% lean Ground beef markdown by 30% $28.76
  • approxiamately 2lbs breakfast steaks markdown by 30% $2.58
  • 2lbs baby carrots $2.00
  • 3 bottles Old Orchard Juice $2.67
  • 2.57lbs bananas $1.52
  • 12lbs potatoes $4.00

Total: $41.53

**The reason for the markdown ground beef is the butcher ground too much the day before I just so happened to be in the store over at the meat case while they were marking it down! Score for me!!!

Save A Lot trip

  • 6 cans cream of chicken soup $3.92

Total: $3.92

GRAND TOTAL: $119.42

Savings Total: LOTS!!! It is hard to figure out exactly how much exactly with getting the markdown ground beef. Needless to say, you can see now why my total was higher than I expected!

You did really good! Meat can really eat up anyone's budget. I just hope it goes on sale before I desperately need it again :-)
