Weekly Shopping Trip--Savings $29.87

This week's shopping was a light week! I decided that I wasn't going to much in the way of deal shopping and just focus on the getting the "need items". The only deal that I couldn't pass up was at Meijer buying 20 Kool-aid envelopes and getting a 5pk Kraft Mac & Cheese free and 5lbs of sugar for 79¢!!

Actually I did the Kool-aid deal like this....

I bought 25 Kool-aid envelopes. I used my TWO Kraft coupons for 50¢/10 so that made the total cost of my 25 envelopes $1.50(or 6 cents each). Then I also got FIVE boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese(valued at $3.49) for FREE. I also used the $2 off sugar coupon when you buy 10 Kool-aid envelopes so I got 5lbs of sugar for 79¢. So all total for this deal it cost me $2.29 out of pocket!!!! And if I really wanted to get technical, the lady in front of me gave me her $2 off your next shopping order Catalina coupon so I could say this deal only costs me 29¢!
