total value: $315.09
This required a lot of time clipping and perusing my coupon stash and the internet. My two favorite websites for savings are GroceryGame.com & SoutherSavers.com Most of today’s info came from SouthernSavers.com GroceryGame.com has THE BEST LIST hands down, however it doesn’t come out until Friday noon. The sale started on Wednesday. If I had waited until Friday evening most of the FREE of SUPER CHEAP stuff would have been gone. Yes, I could get a raincheck (RC) but that doesn’t mean I will save as much. The bulk of today’s savings came b/c of it being SUPER DOUBLES…that means that Qn’s up to $`1.98 will DOUBLE. So instead of saving $1. I save $2.00; if it was a Qn for $1.50 now I saved $3.00. That means the savings add up fast. I was able to get lots of big items for far cheaper than I normally pay at Sam’s or Aldi. I bought each baby of Puppy Chow for $5.99 for ~20lbs. I think I will buy more when I go later in week!
The above items were free after the sale price and Qn. I have bought Quaker Rice cakes for free b/4. That Qn was only for $.75, so $1.50 after it doubles. The rice cakes go on sale for $1.50 each. My goal this week was to use as many higher dollar Qn –Qn over $1. that don’t normally double. With that being said, these are GREAT occasional snacks for Ethan, so since we are out, I went ahead and bought them today. I don’t know when the sale will run again. They might not be on sale next week or in two weeks when I need them. One thing I have really been able to do is get further away from buying items merely out of need. The bulk of my weekly shopping is b/c it is the best price, it is something we would use, or it was free. Of course I still have to buy milk, bread, eggs and fresh produce on an as needed basis, but that is about it! When I am making my menu I look at what I already have on hand and occasionally I have to add a few items to the weekly list to cook certain dishes.
Free Food or less than $1.00
Here is a brief list of items that I bought for free or less than a $1.!

Wholly Gaucomole Salsa flavor or something…bought this last month, it is the best Gaucomole EVER. We all loved it…if I had bought the smaller plain only package it would have been free, but I still only paid $1.99 and talk about a great addition to all of the tortillas I scored last week 🙂
