Shopping Trip 5/27: Kroger and Albertson's

Today was payday and I had been putting off shopping until then, so I had big plans for today.  We ended up getting a late start, though.  I had to go to the library to return movies, so I opted to go to the two stores that were that direction first.  They were not where the majority of my shopping was to be done, so I will go back out once my husband gets home.  (I had to come home for naptime....)

First up was Kroger.  One of the reasons I went there was because I heard that the Pampers travel wipes were on sale for $1.  The $0.50/1 from the P&G insert would have doubled and made them free.  They were not $1.  The Kandoo wipes, were though.  If there is a coupon for those, I didn't have it with me.

I did get all of this stuff though (the chicken was my main reason for going):

I paid $14.xx for this.  I have lost my receipt, so I can't tell you my savings %  (if I recall it was $34 something when I handed over my card), but here is the breakdown:

  • Milano Cookies  $2 each.  Used  $1/1 Melts Printable (no longer available) and one from 5/15 SS, plus the $0.50 any from 5/15 SS  = $1 each
  • Bar S Hot dogs  $1 each.  Used $1/2  printables (no longer available) and from 5/22 RP = $0.50 each
  • Country Crock  Do not recall exact price, but I used my $1/1 from All You, and it made it less than one form Aldi would cost.
  • Chicken leg quarters  $0.59/lb in 10lb bag for $5.90

On to Albertson's and already pushing lunch time, I grabbed some fried chicken from the deli, and all of this stuff:

Total Shelf Price:  $17.82
Total Sale Price:   $11.73
Price Paid After Coupons:  $9.26    48% Savings

I told you about the Ragu and BBQ sauce here, but I also noticed that the C&H sugar was $2.19.  I had a $0.50 coupon (I have no idea where from) that doubled to make it just $1.19, which was cheaper than the Aldi price.

The best part of this trip is that even though today was payday, none of this came out of this month's budget.  I finished off the gift card that I told you about here, and used $7 cash I still had from last month.

Now my husband just got home, so I am about to head to the bank, Aldi, and Tom Thumb.  Busy day!
