Well, I did it! I went and blew my grocery budget. I don't do it often but with my son recovering from surgery and frankly me willing to buy whatever he wants to eat right now, I went out and spent just over $90. The fact that I didn't shop last week didn't help either. Oh well...I'll do better next week.
I didn't break down my receipt this week because of time. Being mom, wife, teacher, housekeeper, and now nurse really zaps the time. I did want to show you a couple of the really good deals I got though.
I don't typically shop at Marcs because of the length of the lines. I almost always spend more time in line than I do shopping in the store so I try to avoid it at all cost. But I was made aware of a deal on garbage bags (which we use a lot of and rarely find an awesome deal) and so I simply had to go.This was the deal:
Hefty Garbage Bags $.87 minus $.55 coupon = $.32 for 10 Hefty garbage bags or $2.26 (including tax) for 60 garbage bags.
Giant Eagle had a money making deal this week. I'll probably have to head back out before the sale is over to see if I can cash in on this deal again. There are many possible scenarios but this is the one that worked for me.
Shelf Price - $4.98 each = $19.92
Sale Price - $2.49 each = $9.96
Minus Coupon - $1.50 off each = -$6.00
OOP - $3.96
2 Edge Shave Gel
Shelf Price - $2.99 each = $5.98
Sale Price - $2.00 each = $4.00
Minus Coupon - $1.10 off each = -$2.20
Now, for spending $25 SHELF PRICE I got $10 OYNSO for a
profit of $4.24
I had the opportunity to get my garden in this weekend!! YAY!! I can't wait to enjoy some fresh veggies. This always helps with the grocery budget too.
