Saved: $ 123.63
Total Value: $217.92
My goal is to have my overall savings between 65-70%, as you can tell I wasn’t even close. That being said please note how much produce, dairy & fresh meat I got today. I would venture that at least 40% of what I bought today would fall into those 3 categories. Although I can use Qn’s for lunch meat and yogurt/cheese it is difficult to consistently find Qn for fresh milk and fresh meat.
Harris Teeter ran an ad in Friday’s newspaper that had $16 in store coupons. I bought 2 papers…one for Brad & one for me. There was a limit on how many of each Qn one could use. Here was the make your own sale deal:
4 x $.50 off Qn
4x $1.00 Qn good on any item over $2.
2 x $5 off Qn off of $40 (could use the second $5 off if you spent $80 or more) & (also had to be taken off of all other discounts/Qns)
You could not combine manufacturer Qn with the above Qn other than the $5. off total purchase.
So when I saw those Qn I realized there were quite a few cuts of meat already on sale, so I went and stocked up!
Cube Steak that was BOGO
Stew Meat BOGO
Ground Turkey BOGO
I would have gotten roast that was BOGO, but out of stock!
I used the other Qn toward fresh produce. I had manufacturer Qn for almost every other item in my cart, so that worked out great!
I also got a can of OFF bug Spray for $1.50 after clearance and $1. off Qn
Here is a quick run down of what else I had:
*12 yoplait yogurt $.33 each
*4 packs Morrel lunch meat
*2 Tropicanna OJ
*2 gallons milk
*4lb bag naval oranges
*bag of salad
*1 bell pepper
* 2 lbs of Tillapia $3.99 lb
*8 cans Campbell’s tomato soup
*4 cans Hunts Diced Tomato
*5 cans Hunt tomato sauce
*Chex mix $.29
* pineapple $2.50 each
* grapes $2.79lb not a great price, but we haven’t been eating enough fresh produce lately!
* 2 cans Emerald Nuts $2.49 each
*Mop head- clearance $2.47
*1 box BettyCrocker potatoes $.45
*2 pouches of Betty Crocker mashed potatoes FREE after Qn!
*2 bags NO YOLK egg noodles FREE!
This will be my squirrel item for the week. I bought 20 Qn off of ebay, so I will be heading back to HT to buy lots more!
* $3. or so in clearance candy (kids consumed b/4 we got home!)
* packs of bagels $1.89 each, I think they should have been $1.19 each, but then Qn might have been in the wrong place…oh well!
*2 Dawn Hand renewal evic for both of us @ $1.77 each (I think) so after $.50 Qn = $.77 each
*2 Dawn dish soap- 10 oz- $.99 each had $.25 Qn so $.49 each. Not as good a deal as above, but the $.50 off Qn was for the dawn hand renewal. I haven’t quite caught the sales just right so in my stock pile it bounce back and forth between the 10 oz and the larger ones. Usually I pay $.50 each for the small ones and never more than $1. for the larger ones. I haven’t figured out what the rock bottom price is. both of those prices per oz are very comparable with Sam’s price so I am content with that!
So overall it was a good trip. It has been a while since I have stocked up on meat. I will need to buy a case of Ground Beef soon from Sam’s. The last year or so I have been splitting a case with a friend. I have yet to see 90% ground beef go on sale for cheaper than what Sam’s case price is.
