Grocery Bonanza!

December 29th, 2006 at 02:58 pm

I just returned from a rather large grocery shopping trip. Since I have the week off from my personal chef job, I was able to spend quality time perusing deals for us. Initial total was $118.13, after store card it was $94.18, and after coupons, $63.19. The order was mostly food, but did include some cleaning supplies and facial tissue. Although I don’t keep a price book, I have a pretty good idea of the cost of most items (I’m not disregarding price books, if I have the time, I would love to create one), and I’ve found it really helps to know the usual price and then save up your coupons until there’s a great sale. I’m also fortunate to have a grocery store that doubles coupons up to $1.00.

A few “scores” I was happy about:

40 oz box of Bisquick for $0.12
3 – 15 oz boxes of Cheerios for $2.50 ($0.83 box)
12-160 count boxes of Scotties Facial Tissue for $3.98 ($0.33 / box)
15# flour (10# bread flour, 5# white flour) for $2.87
1 box 20 Electrosol Dishwasher Tablets for $0.63
2-11oz cans Chock Full O Nuts Coffee for $2.50 ($1.25 / can)
1 Roll Saran Wrap – Free
1 12 oz. bag Nestle Dark Chocolate Chips – Free

The New Year is upon us! I need to get going on writing down some goals!
