Weekly Shopping Trip---Savings $26.06

This week, I only went to one store and got WIC along with a few stock up items and spent less than fifty dollars for the week.

One of the stock up items was ground beef!  The store had it on sale for $1.79/lb and that is a good deal considering that normally it is regularly around $2.50/lb.  Initially, I grabbed a little over 8 pounds of the sale meat and when I got home I realized that  sale meat had a tag saying 93% lean meat rather than the 81% lean that they had in the ad. So I got ground sirloin meat for $1.79/lb!!!  I should have immediately gone back to the store and got more, but I didn't I waited until the next day when I had to go get a prescription from the pharmacy.  I picked up another almost 11 pounds of meat but this time the tag said the 81% lean.  That is still some decently lean meat!  So now I have about 20 pounds of ground beef that I need to get in the freezer.(find out next week what I do with the meat).

Here is the breakdown from my shopping this week:

Family Fare: 

  • 19.70 lbs ground beef $29.89
  • 3 boxes poptarts $7.00
  • 2 bags Cheetos $3.66
  • 2 bags Fritos $4.68
  • 1 head lettuce 87¢
Total OOP: $46.10
Total Savings: $26.06
Total without sales & coupons: $72.16

Great job! I'm not always great at saving on meat! Definitely worth stocking up when you find a great deal!
