Last week I took the weekend off from heavy shopping. At 6:45am on Black Friday I hit up a Price Chopper for some fruit, bread, eggs and milk. Exciting stuff huh? As a result though we were lacking in quite a few things by yesterday. Not only was the food department a little sparse, but our cleaning supplies were all due for restocking. Everything you see below cost $75.28.
Some of that stuff you see there is the final items I collected for Cans for Comments! Check out this pile (65 items) I’ll deliver later today! Well done readers – can’t wait to do this again soon!

The Deals: Thanks to a Target coupon mailer I received, I was able to stock up on plenty of their store brand (Up & Up) cleaning and household items. Gotta love good deals on the necessities. We’ve been very happy in the past with the Up & Up paper towels and trash bags; I only expect to be pleased with the dish and hand soaps too. The training pants will be a real test though (we use those at night for the boys) as we had terrible luck with Target brand diapers when the boys were little.
HyVee had a nice sale on oranges which is great considering the boys eat them like candy. Oranges were 5/$1 (60%), so I loaded up on enough to get us through the week. The Chex cereals all worked out to $1.38 each after coupons (63% off), the Hormel Sausages were $1 each (56% off) and the Palermo’s Pizzas were $1.17 each (71% off). My favorite though was scoring the Little Debbie Cupcakes for FREE! That was thanks to a little promo I entered on the Little Debbie website a few months ago, resulting in a coupon for a free box being mailed to my house.
Price Chopper had a great deal on boneless skinless chicken breast, so I stocked up! Small packages (about 1.5 pounds each on average) were just $1.19 per pound (67% off), but were limited to 4 packages per customer. Probably just as well as I don’t think I could fit many more into my freezer. Bananas were also on sale at Price Chopper for .39 a pound.
Overall it certainly wasn’t my most impressive week of shopping, but I did alright still.
