My Shopping Trip - 8/22 (Kroger, Meijer & CVS)


Today I needed to do a pretty "big" shopping trip, because we've run a bit low on a few different items. I stopped at Meijer, Kroger and CVS (my usuals!!). Here's what I got:

Kroger:
  • 8 Bottles of Juicy Juice = $20. I used eight $1 off 1 coupons, plus I got $5 off for the Nestle deal. So I paid 7.00 total for 8 bottles which is .88 a piece (a price I'm very happy with).
  • 2 Bags of Frozen Tyson Chicken Breasts on sale buy one get one free. So I paid 9.99 for two bags which comes out to $2 a pound.
  • 1 5lb bag of potatoes = 1.98.
  • 1 loaf of Sara Lee Bread. I used the get one free coupon, so I paid 0.
  • 1 Annie's Organic Macaroni and Cheese = 1.50.
  • 1 Kroger Oyster Crackers = 1.00
Product Total = 47.22
Kroger Deals (Nestle and Tyson)= -14.99
Coupon Total = -10.79
I paid 21.44

CVS:
  • 1 bottle of Benefiber = 12.99

Meijer:
  • 6 Pert Shampoos = 2.99 each (I used my last raincheck to get these at that price). I used six $3 off coupons, so I paid 0.
  • 8 packages of Knorr Rice/Pasta Sides = 8.00. I used four .75 off 2 coupons (2 doubled, 2 didn't) so I paid a total of 4.50

  • 4 Campbell's Selects Soups = 5.00. I used two .50 off 2 coupons and paid 3.00 total for 4.

  • 1 Tyson Whole Chicken = 3.48 (.79 per lb). I used a .55 off 1 coupon and paid 2.48 total.
  • 4 Gallons of Milk = 9.56 (2.39 each)
  • 1 Meijer Parmesan Cheese = 2.89
