Total for the week: 45.04. Over budget, but considering that this was a major stock-up week, I’m pretty happy with it. Most of this is calculated without tax.
This week was ALL about dairy. We love yogurt, but we’re stocked up for a while! The Mega Event at Kroger just made it so cheap (or free) that I couldn’t resist. (There will for sure be a couple more dairy trips next week too, though, to finish out the sale.)
1st shopping trip: Annoyed that I wasn’t watching the cashier closely enough. She missed 2.00 in coupons, but I didn’t notice it until later and it just wasn’t worth it to go back. Should have been 4.37 with tax, but with the missed coupons total comes to: 6.37
The bread and makeup were all better-than-free after coupons, so offset the cost of the other items. Bacon .49 per package, juice .53 cents per bottle, veggies 1.00, craisins 1.12
Nine dollar’s worth of local organic produce from the farmer’s market included a giant bundle of collards (two whole plants), radishes, a bag of beautiful spinach, and a bundle of three swiss chard plants. We ate the outer leaves of the chard and I’m thinking about trying to re-plant the roots and baby leaves.
3rd trip (three different stores): 18.38
All the go-gurt, dip, and gluten free bread were free after coupons. Yogurt parfaits and tubs and shave gel .49 each. markdown whole chicken at .85 cents per pound. Everything else normal sale price.
4th Trip: 4.92
Again, free gogurt and super cheap yogurt and shave gel. The organic oranges were a steal at .99 per bag.
5th trip: 3.43
Free go-gurt and creamer, everything else super cheap after coupons and mega-event.
6th trip (two stores): 2.94
More free go-gurt and creamer. Cheap yogurt parfaits and tubs.
