Fifteen items

March 13th, 2011 at 10:24 am

Did my grocery shopping. Sure was nice to get out on a sunny day after being cooped up!

1 roll Sparkle paper towels (on sale)
Croutons (on sale)
Keebler oatmeal raisin cookies (on sale)
2 Edy's slow-churned frozen yogurt blends (BOGO)
2 4-packs Activia yogurt (on sale, $1.50 off coupon)
Bag of Snickers treats (on sale)
Bottle of wine (on sale)
2 bags frozen vegetables (on sale)
2 bags cat chow (on sale, $1.00 off coupon)
Iced tea mix (house brand)
Wheat crackers (house brand)

Total price: $53.52
Savings: $10.64
Coupon Savings: $2.50

I didn't need any basics this week, so the list is mostly supplemental items. I neglected to get fresh fruit -- I couldn't decide between cantaloupe and strawberries, and then I forgot to go back. I should be fine, though, I still have clementines and grapes to be eaten.

I made sure that my coupons got scanned AND I got into my apartment without dropping the wine, so I consider it a successful trip!

    You did a good job with your shopping trip. Can you save more with coupons or using house brand items?

    I have watch a few YouTube clips on coupons shopping but as we don't have coupons here I can't get into the idea of it that much. Good if you need that item but buy because it nearly free only is not my idea of saving if you never use at all.

    TK -- I personally do a lot better with house brands. It seems like every time I have a coupon, the house brand is cheaper anyway. And it's so much easier.

    There are very few items I don't like in the house brand. Honey Nut Cheerios and Charmin seem to be my main brand name requirements.

    I love it when the house brand is also on sale!
