This week I found a lot of great deals. Canned green beans and corn - $0.33/can. Plus the grocery store had a coupon spend $50 get $10 off. If I divide that by every item I bought it is an additional $.14/can discount. Making the final cost $0.19/can. I also bought Potatoes for $0.10/pound and milk for $1.99/gallon.
Today I bought 2 pounds of sliced mushrooms for $0.25 each. They are on the dehydrator as I type.
I think I did pretty good at Publix this week. A few of the better deals>
4-pkges Knorr Sides - Free (I had 2 coupons for 1 free pkge, and they were on BOGO, so was the right time to use those free Cs)
2- 4 packs of Dannon Fusions- $1 ea (had $1/1 Cs)
6-DiGiorno Pizzas- $20 (they were on sale 2 for $10. had a B2G1F coupon) YUCKY...will not buy again
2 Qts Half&Half- $.89 ea after combining mftr & store coupons. I was thrilled with this deal because I MUST have this with my coffee!
2- boxes 24 ct Lipton Iced Tea Bags - on BOGO sale-$1.89 for both after $1 C. This is WAY up from the usual $2.39 BOGO sale though!
Also got Mueller's pasta for $.55 a box ,Contadina's 12 oz cans tomato sauce on BOGO 2 for $1.25, bought 10 cans w/no Cs, and Birdseye frozen veggies were half price. I also had a $5 off $25 competitor's C. I bought 47 items for a total of $78.17. Not too bad, but honestly would have paid about half that just a couple of years ago. Of course I blame rising prices, and coupons just ain't what they used to be either...UHG!
We eat steel cut oats cooked in the slow cooker with freeze dried fruit every other morning. I have been buying steel cut oats in #10 cans by the case from Honeyville grain when they have a sale. This time I did my research and bought a 50# bag when it was on sale. It cut the price in half! I will be vacuum sealing it in smaller amounts.
My niece's kids like it too. I am going to ask her if she wants to buy some of my most recent purchase.
I'm amazed at everyone's clever shopping! Especially the cards, points and all that seems complicated, but I'm gradually learning.
Winn Dixie is having a weekend sale, and I'm planning to pick up their chicken leg quarters for $0.49 per pound. I'm going to make Moroccan chicken in the crock pot with a lemon from my own tree. Later this year I will have home-grown coriander to put in it also.
Wedding gown from GW. It was marked $30, but was half that on clearance, so $15. But a 20% senior discount took another $3 off, so the final price was only $12. I also bought a baby blue gown, same situation except that one started at $20 and ended up costing $8. Since I had expected to pay $30-$40 for a wedding gown alone, I'm very happy about getting both for $20.
At Savers, I got 2 totes which, according to WM's site would have cost at least $44. I don't believe that based on past purchases. I think they would have cost around $20, but will check next time we go to WM. At any rate, they are the same size but different brands and styles, so one was marked $4 and the other $3. When we went to pay, we were given a 30% discount on top of that. Since those totes were on my list of stuff to buy at WM anyway, it was a nice surprise to find them so much cheaper.
