Total Value: $167.56
I did some shopping for a friend tonight, so that is how I was able to get so much stuff & use so many Q.
This has been an AWESOME Super Doubles. Yeah, I can get free cans of beans & more Hamburger Helper than anyone needs to eat; and sometimes free veggies & yogurt, but this week I feel like I got lots of GREAT FREE items that we will use and would have to buy anyway.
*Oscar Mayer Ham x 2 on sale @ $3.00= $6- 2x $1/off 1 Doubled= $2
& had a BOGO Q from Harris Teeter so it took off $3, so I got both free & $1 applied to rest of groceries!
*2 Millstone Coffee @ $1.20= $2.40- 2x $2 off Q= – $1.60 which applied to rest of groceries!
*4 Classico Pasta Sauces @$1.66 – $1 off/1 Q doubled= FREE
*3x Smart Balance Milk $3.00- $1.50 Q doubled
*6 Danactive drink yogurt $2.- $1 off Q doubled= FREE
*6 danimal kid yogurt $2- $1 Q doubled= FREE
*Philly Cooking Creme $2.99- $1.50 Q doubled= FREE
*2 gallons milk- used the FREE milk Q from buying 3 boxes cereal
*2 Sara Lee Bread @ $1.99 (bought 4 total) – $1 off/2 bread when you buy milk.
— Pretty cool b/c the milk was already free! (so either 2 were free or each one was $1 each–I like the the 2 FREE 🙂 )
*Kahiki eggrolls $.12 after sale & Q doubled
*Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh $.65 each after sale & Q
*Wholly Gaucomole $1.99 after Q- We love this stuff and it has become an affordable splurge since I only buy it with Q!
I have learned I can freeze it so I think I will be buying a few more boxes to throw in the freezer.
*Eggs 18 ct $.49, normally $2.49- $1/off 1 dozen eggs. Since the Q was going to double to $2.00 I wanted to get the most for my $$ b/c I am going to buy eggs anyway but getting 18 for $.49 = $.027 per egg as opposed to normally I pay $.10- $.12 an egg.
*2 small packs beef stew $2. for one & $1.55 for the second. 2x Q save $1 on beef when buy classico sauce- Q doubled to $2 each.
*Kraft shredded & chunk $.92 each or $1.84lb after sales & Q doubled
My goal is to get various shredded/chunk for less than Mozerella & Cheddar from Sams which is around $2lb.
I also try to get cheese I can’t get as cheaply from Sam’s.
*Raisin Bran between $1 & $1.40 each– I had different values of Q
*Kelloggs Honey Crunch $1. & $1.40 each I had different values of Q
–did the deal twice getting 3 boxes each time, so I would get the FREE milk Q at the end!!!
My freezer is so full, I think April will be a month of just getting fresh stuff, milk & bread 🙂
My goal this year is to spend $500 – $600 a month to feed our family of 6, 2 large black labs & 4 cats. This also needs to include Health & Beauty items as much as possible. This is a decrease from last year. Last year’s goal was to stay around $700 a month, we were well below that so I am challenging ourselves to cut back a little. According to the USDA http://www.cnpp.usda.gov/USDAFoodCost-Home.htm
My family of 6 should be spending $192 a week / or roughly $830 a month on the FRUGAL plan. To my knowledge this doesn’t include Health & Beauty or pet food.
