I ran to the grocery store this evening to buy some milk, bread, and a few other supplies for the week. While I ran through the isles...I saw other items that I knew we were nearly out of, that were on sale! I only purchased two things that weren't on sale, eggs and generic velveeta (gotta have it for mac-n-cheese!). My total was $29.81. The kicker part is the total savings...$25.18!!!! I purchased my groceries for nearly half price! I LOVE a good deal! All of these items are things we will use, nothing that was "out there" and will sit on the shelf. Here's a list of all the groceries I got for $29.81 (this includes tax, and remember, this is all from the local, small town grocery store)
1 dozen eggs
2-2 cup packages of kr*ft mozarella cheese
2 gallons of skim milk
2 jars of Ragu spaghetti sauce
2 loaves of sandwich bread
3 pkgs hotdogs
2 pounds of apples
2.8 pounds of red grapes
1 sleeve of celery
Ok, the receipt is much longer, and looks much more impressive. The milk was on sale for $2.99, and is usually $3.85 and the grapes were on sale for .99 cents/pound, they are usually more around the $3.00/pound mark this time of year...and they look so yummy! I know some kiddos who will be in heaven when they open up their lunch boxes tomorrow!
I know I could probably do even better if I took the time to clip coupons, but I just don't take the time. I generally purchase the store brand, unless (like today) the name brand is on sale cheeper than the store brand.
I was just so excited when I saw that the total was $29.81 and the total savings for today was $25.18...just wanted to share! Thanks for letting me ramble! :o)
