Weekly Shopping---Saved $36.61

I needed to work at decreasing my stockpile so this week, I decided to take a break from major deal shopping. I did go into Family Fare for a WIC run along with picking up a few of the 3 day deals and doing my "look" through the Manager's Special meat racks.

Well here is the breakdown of shopping trip...

1st Transaction:
  • 4 bags candy $6.08

  • 3lb bag apples $2.99

  • 1 gallon apple cider $2.88

  • 1.96lb B/S chicken breasts $3.51

  • 1.87lb B/S chicken breasts $3.35

  • 1.24lb ground chuck $2.77

  • 1.17lb ground chuck $2.61

  • 1.43lb ground chuck $3.19

  • 1.15lb ground chuck $2.57

Total: $29.95
Savings Total: $26.53

2nd Transaction:
  • 4 bags candy $4.08
Total: $4.08 minus $3.50 bottle refund = 58 cents!!!
Savings Total: $9.08(that doesn't include the bottle refund!)

GRAND TOTAL SAVINGS: $36.61(not including using the bottle refund)

Looks like you found some great deals. We have been saving up our cans and bottles for candy too.

Is there someplace that tells you a good or great price for different kinds of meat? I'm good at getting junk food for cheap. Now I want to get better at buying beef, pork, chicken, veggies, etc.
