I was on the hunt for more $5.99 diapers b/c after Qn they were $2.99.
That is $2.99 without using ECB / RR to get that price!
I must confess, I really didn’t want to buy more than 2 packs of diapers, I wanted Rainchecks!
And I GOT them. I went to 3 different stores looking for them and only found sizes/variety I wanted at 1 store.
I kindly asked if I could get separate rainchecks for Pampers & Huggies. I walked away with a combined RC total of 24!
If we continue using cloth diapers mostly and disposable on Sunday’s for church and a few other times I think I have enough diapers in my stash & RC to make it to when he is potty trained. 🙂
While I was out I decided to buy more chicken. I must admit that we let our Sam’s membership lapse so I have been a little worried about having enough low cost meat in my freezer. I had been splitting cases of ground beef & tyson chicken breast with a friend. This meant that i usually had at least 40 lbs of meat & 20 lbs of chicken at the outset. We are almost out of all of our last half cases. So yes, it looks like a lot of chicken, but this week I only bought 18lbs…which is less than I would have bought from Sam’s. I know we will renew our Sam’s membership b/c my van needs new tires soon, but I didn’t want to waste our membership when I haven’t really been shopping there. Since grocerygaming in November we have only been to Sam’s once, right b/4 Christmas. I know I am paying slightly higher for milk & eggs, but I get so many other things for cheaper that it is worth my time.
*Sorry forgot to mention the 100 calorie cheese packs
I ran into FL on Sunday looking for blinkie coupons…$.75 off one pack
The blinkies for FL have a different code than what is at HT and will double when scanned.
HT had a promo, buy 3 save $3. instantly. I used 3x $.75 Qn for each pack=
$.93 for 3 packs or $.31 each!!!
I ate a pack on the way home, not great cheese, but I mainly bought them to go in Ethan’s bottle bag when I send food/snacks to church. Those are just the right size for him!
*Bought more yogurt! All four of my kids have 1 yogurt a day and often Brad & I have it daily.
I have been trying to find whole milk yogurt for Ethan b/c he needs the higher fat content. Dannon & Yoplait have lowfat yogurt that is made with skim milk, but it doesn’t have much fat. I know Stoneyfield has a whole milk yogurt, but it is $.89 each. I might have to suck it up and start buying it or experiment again with making yogurt. I have tried making it and it was easy to make, but sometimes it didn’t thicken so it was more like a drinkable yogurt. That was okay for smoothies, but it wasn’t what I was going for. It might be time to revisit yogurt making!
