Shopping Trip 1/30: Should Have Paid More Attention To The Ad!

I'm still eating from the freezer this week, but there were a few items on my list that I needed from Aldi, and while I was out, and passing right by it, I figured I might as well stop by Tom Thumb.

My first stop was Aldi, and I grabbed some items we'd run out of and a few produce sale items they had.  Here is everything I got:

I'm stocked up on snack and lunch items now for at least the next two weeks, and my total spent was $30.85.

(By the way, my store still had plenty of the Tyson Chicken Breasts that were this weeks meat special buy, with $2 off stickers on them, so if you need chicken, keep your eyes peeled for those!  I still have plenty of chicken in my freezer, so I didn't buy any this time.)

Then I stopped in Tom Thumb.  My main reason for going there was to buy some Ken's dressing.  They were on sale for $1.50, and I had 4 $1/1 coupons to get them for just $0.50.  I walked in the door, and headed for the dressing aisle first.  The signs there said $2.50, however.  I was confused, so I walked back to the front and grabbed an ad.  Sure enough, I'd missed, or at least forgotten, the fine print that said 3 Day Sale, Friday-Sunday Only.

So, I didn't get my salad dressing..but I still got the rest of the few items that I went in to get:

Total Shelf Price:  $18.32
Total Sale Price:   $12.46    (Already 32% Savings

Used $5/1 Kingsford printable (NLA)
Used FREE Yoplait Kids Coupon (Home mailer, expired today!)
Used $1/1 Danimals Crunchers from All You
Used $1/4 2oz Buddig  (found in package)
Used $0.25/1 Chapstick (tripled)  (NLA)

Then used $2 ONYO coupon that printed last trip, bringing my grand total down to $0.21!  That's a savings of 99%!

I've hit two stores so far this week, for a grand total of $31.06 for $49.21 worth of items.  I'm still planning on going to both Albertson's and Kroger either this evening or tomorrow morning.  Hopefully I can keep it under budget for the week.

Since I'm eating from the freezer, I don't need items to make meals, so I am focusing on stockpile items that are running low!
