Our first trip was to the farmer's market where we scored all of the above for $9.50.
When we got home from the farmer's market, Keith suggested I leave the kids with him so I could enjoy the rest of the grocery shopping by myself. Let me make two points here - I love grocery shopping by myself so much that it is a recreational activity - and, yes, my husband was greatly rewarded. :)
My first kid-free stop was to CVS - I had $10 in ECB (extra care bucks) and a bunch of coupons. It's almost euphoric saving this much money!
My CVS score -
Garnier Fructis (1) shampoo (1) mousse (1) hairspray - 3/$9.99 (sale) - $3 in coupons for $1 off each Garnier product = 3/$6.99 or $2.33 each.
Lysol 35 count wipes (2) - 2/$5 (sale) - $1 off 2 coupon = 2/$4 or $2 each (and fights flu!)
Sobe Life (5) - 5/$5 Earned 3 ECB
Curel lotion - $6.99 (sale) - $1 coupon = $5.99
Palmolive dishwasher detergent - $.99 (sale) - $.25 coupon = $.75
Jergens lotion - $5.99 (sale) - $1.00 coupon = $4.99
Colgate Total Advanced Whitening toothpaste $3.49 - $.75 coupon = $2.75 Earned 2 ECB
Tampax mulit pack 40 count with free razor $5.99 (sale) Earned 3 ECB
Total paid - $28.42 (used $10 in ECB)
Today saved $31.21 (coupons/sales/ECB)
Earned $10 in ECB
Next stop was Publix where I managed a few good deals there as well!
Aside from CVS and the farmer's market, I've managed to get our weekly grocery shopping bill to hover just around $100 - which is amazing for a family of 5. I pack lunches/snacks for two kids in school and we entertain for dinner at least once a week. We try to eat mostly organic.
Total grocery bill at Publix this week was $104.42 with a savings of $31.76.
Classico pasta sauce B1G1 and a coupon for $1/2 = $1.77 for 2 or about $.90 each
Publix probiotic yogurts on sale for 3/$5 - $1 coupon = 3/$4 or about $1.33 each
Wishbone salad dressing on sale B1G1 and a coupon for$1.25/2 = $2.87-$1.25=$1.62 or about $.80 each.
Lawry's marinade B1G1 and a coupon for $1/2 = $1.81 for 2 or about $.90 each
I can't really link to where the coupons come from, since I cut and organize coupons weekly from different sources - just about everything is from the Sunday paper and Publix flyers.
