This week’s shopping gotten broken up over 2 days and 3 stores. HyVee and Hen House on Thursday and Price Chopper yesterday. Considering I still don’t have a turkey or other Thanksgiving necessities, I’ll be heading out again in a few days. (How on earth did it get to be Thanksgiving already?!) Everything in the two pictures below cost me a combined $50.66.
HyVee: Robert’s Orange Juice – 1 @ .99 (limit one), HyVee Pretzels – 2 bags @ $1 each, Wheat Thins Sticks – 1 @ .99, Swanson broths – 5 cans @ .33 each, Wesson Canola Oil – 1 @ $1.59, Clementines – 1 box @ $5.99. While the Clementine box wasn’t the price I normally like to pay (I shoot for $5 a box or lower), it was close enough and I was excited enough to see them back in the stores that I bought one.
Hen House: Tide Free Liquid 32 use – 1 @ $2.99, Chicken of the Sea tuna – 5 cans @ .49 each, Fluff – 2 jars @ .99 each, Land o Lakes Butter – 2 boxes @ $1.99 each.
Price Chopper: Libby Canned Veggies – 6 cans @ .05 each (yep, 5 cents!), Diet Coke (which is not pictured because I drank it) for $1.59, Best Choice Ketchup – 1 @ .99, Chex Cereals – 4 boxes @ $1.50 each, Land o Lakes Butter – 2 boxes @ 1.99 each, California Pizza Kitchen pizzas – 2 @ $3.50 each, Hormel Pepperoni Sticks – 3 @ FREE (retail for $3.69 each), Dried Cranberries – 1 bag @ $1.25, Sweet Potatoes – 3.5 pounds @ .39 a pound, Duracell AAA batteries – 1 four pack @ .49.
I’m now pretty well set on butter for a while, and a lot of the canned goods (especially the .05 cans of veggies) will be dropped off at the church this weekend for the food pantry. The free pepperoni sticks are the Price Chopper Kids Club item of the month. If you haven’t signed your kids up for this yet, you need to! Each month, every child in your house under the age of 12 will get 1 free item.
Total Before Sales, Coupons and Tax: $132.60

You may not have the same stores as me in your area, or even the size of the coupon stash that I do, but with some work and determination you too can have some big savings! Next week I’ll post about my new way of couponing and share some general “getting started” tips.
