Publix, Kroger, and CVS Shopping Trips! JACKPOT!

I usually go shopping on Tuesday's but this week I had a 2 coupon classes to prepare for and I skipped my usual schedule. I went shopping this morning, instead, and am SOOOOOOO glad that I did!

Be sure to check back with me over the weekend details on what I did with this weeks groceries! Pictures and all!

You can go here to see what I did with all of this meat!

As I mentioned before I am raising my weekly budget from $100 per week to $150 per week due to adding 2 more adults to my household. (Now we are a family of 6...4 adults, 1 6 yr old, 1 3 month old!)

We will start out with my very small CVS trip!



Here is what I bought!

4 Boxes of Kellogg's Cereal @ $2 each (Used raincheck from last week's sale!)
Price: $8
Used: 4 $1/1 Kellogg Cereal Coupons
New Price: $4.23
OOP: $4.23
***In the chaos of 2 coupon classes in 1 week, I left my CVS folder on my desk at home but I had my rainchecks in my wallet. I didn't get to use any ECB's or my Gift Card! If I had my folder with me my OOP would've been $0.00! I didn't mind though...I have gotten thousands of dollars worth of free items from there this year and "I guess" it won't kill me to actually pay more than .42 for something, right?


Next we will go to Publix (way more detailed but I am saving the best for last!)

I'm not sure that you have a Kroger in your area but as a tip...all stores marks their meat and produce down, it's just a matter of knowing when they do it! For Kroger it is each morning between 7-9am. Most of the stores do it early in the morning before they have a lot of customers in the store! I have heard of some doing it on certain days or nights but they all vary! Next time you are shopping...ask for the manager of the meat department when they mark their meat down! Usually they are more than happy to tell you because they would rather sell the meat than throw it away! I hope that you are able to find some good deals with this tip!
