Shopping Trip 1/21--Albertson's and Kroger

I don't often attempt shopping with coupons with both of my girls in tow, especially not at two stores.  I must have been feeling pretty brave today, or at least really desperate to get out of the house.  I had planned only to go to Kroger, but then a few things caught my eye in the Albertson's ad as well, and the stores are two blocks from each other, so I thought that it just made sense to stop by both while I was out.

Here is what I grabbed from Albertsons:

  • 2 Best Life Buttery Spread (I was dissappointed that they only had one tub on the shelf)  $0.99--used 2 $1/1 from 1/2 SS--FREE
  • 4 Dawn  $1.00 each--used 4 $0.25/1 from 12/26 P&G (tripled)---$0.25 each
  • 1 Ivory  $1.00  used 1 $0.25/1 from 1/16 P&G (tripled)---$0.25
  • 2 Spaghettios  $1.00 each, used $0.40/2 from 12/12 SS (doubled)---$0.60 each
  • 2 Finish on sale (unadvertised!!) $3.50--used 2 $2.25/1 from 1/2 RP--$1.25 each
Total Shelf Price:  $24.51
Total Sale Price:   $14.00
Price Paid After Coupons and Tax:   $5.26   79% Savings!   Plus, I think I'm stocked up on dish soap ;)

Next I went over to Kroger.  Here is what I came home with (click to enlarge):
Total Shelf Price:  $  89.93
Total Sale Price:   $  60.49
Price Paid After Coupons and Tax:  $28.07   69% Savings   Not bad considering the $10.49 bag of dog food!

A few highlights:
  • Kroger had the Best Life for $1 also (unadvertised) so I used my remaining 4 $1/1 coupons=FREE!
  • Colgate  $1--used 5 $0.50/1 from 1/2 SS (doubled)=FREE!  ***(If you want to get these hurry!!! They expire tomorrow!!!)***
  • Carmex  $1--used $0.30/1 from 11/7 SS (tripled)= $0.10 each.
  • Yakisoba  $0.88 (shelf said $0.99 but they rang up on sale)--used $0.50/1 from 1/2 SS (doubled to .88)=FREE!  I know these aren't the healthiest thing, but my husband likes them and keeps them at school with him.  Sometimes he gives them to his students if he sees they don't have a lunch, so that's a great thing to use coupons for!!
  • Bird's Eye Steam Fresh  $1--Used 3 $0.50/1 printables (from facebook--no longer available) and 2 $0.50/2 from....well I can't find what insert they were from.....all doubled so they were FREE (3)- $0.50 (4).  All said I got 7 for $2 or  $0.29/ pack.
  • Campbell's Soups  $1.  Bought 12--used 6 $0.40/2 from 1/2 SS and 12/12 SS (all doubled)=$0.60
  • Grands Biscuits (8ct)  $1.  Bought 6--Used 3 $0.30/2 printables (all tripled) = $0.55 each (that's less that 7 cents per biscuit!)
  • I also found a pack of soup bones marked down for $0.98 and I plan to make a soup soon. Score!

Did you find some good deals this week?

We hit Krogers too... Got the Grand biscuits, Bird's Eye Veggies, and Kraft cheese bogo. Then we checked their Manager's Special marked down meats... Got a nice london broil, and a flank steak I plan to cut up and use in soup, for half the orginal price. On the way home we filled the gas tank w/10 cents off per/gallon to boot... a pretty good trip!

nice! Part of my decision to go int he morning was to check out the meats that were marked down, but all they had were still expensive steaks. I've gotten some nice roasts there before though. I almost bought a piece of brisket today, but the package was ripped open.

All my fuel points go to waste though because they don't have a fuel station.

Keep dragging your retiree husband around shopping. I love it. =P
