This was one of those weeks I popped in and out of places as time allowed. I don’t recommend hitting this many stores in one week. (I hit 6!!!) But in the many, MANY errands I ran this week, it just worked out I was able to grab the items I wanted and to get in and out quickly.
I hit Whole Foods today for the 1 day sale on shrimp. It was $5.99/lb and I bought 4 lbs. I love to serve this as an appetizer during parties over the holidays! I also got Organic Flour. Arrowhead Mills flour is on sale and there were $3/3 when you spend $10 peelies on the flour bags. I bought Whole Wheat, Unbleached White, and Pastry Flour – all organic. Between sales and coupons, I spent .58/lb for the flour!
TOTAL SPENT AT WHOLE FOODS: $31.38
Here is my combined purchases from Natural Grocers, Safeway and Ranchers Direct Meat (told you I hit a lot of stores!):
I bought Grass Fed beef at 15% off at Ranchers Direct. They also had the ripest looking organic tomatoes on sale. Had to get them!
I ran into Safeway and just bought green peppers, grapefruit and 4 Organic yogurts on close-out for .25 each! (Yogurt not shown – already went in lunchboxes!)
Finally, I had to get the organic potatoes and the Lundberg’s Christmas rice from Natural Grocers.
TOTAL SPENT AT RANCHERS DIRECT: $27.00
TOTAL SAVED AT RANCHERS DIRECT: $3.75
TOTAL SPENT AT SAFEWAY: $4.27
TOTAL SAVED AT SAFEWAY: $6.11 OR 59%
TOTAL SPENT AT NATURAL GROCERS: $4.25
TOTAL SAVED AT NATURAL GROCERS: $1.74 OR 40%
And I couldn’t stay away from King’s Mega Event. I still had coupons to use!
I bought San Pellegrino in anticipation of a family visit over the holidays. It’s my brother-in-law’s favorite. During the Mega Sale it is only .89/bottle. I purchased 5 and got a $1 catalina on my next order! I can’t find any details about the catalina, so I’m not sure how many you have to purchase to get the catalina. Chime in if you know!
TOTAL SPENT AT KINGS: $37.23
TOTAL SAVED: $40.78 or 52%
Not shown: eggs purchased at Walmart. I spent $11.68 on 4 dozen Organic eggs
TOTAL SPENT FOR THE WEEK:$117.67
I’m $2.67 over. But, there is that $1 catalina I got to Kings. So, depending on how you look at it, I could be just $1.67 over.
I’ve been well under the weekly total for the last two weeks, so I cut myself some slack.
How did you do this week? What was your favorite bargain?
