Today I did something that is normally reserved just for Black Friday. I set my alarm to get up earlier than usual (on a Saturday) just so I could get some good deals. See, HyVee was having a 12 hour sale that started at 8am this morning. I knew if I wanted to get everything I was after and be able to avoid rain checks (which I’ve had to get a lot of lately), I needed to be there early. Plus the boys had swimming lessons start up again this morning, so that really threw a wrench in my plans. *yawn* Who has some caffeine for this girl?
Yesterday, the fam and I hit Sam’s Club and Price Chopper. Beginning of the month means it’s stock up time! Everything below (plus two more gallons of milk and a twin pack of apple juice from Sam’s) totaled about $53.
Everything below came from just HyVee and totaled $42! Woo!
3 gallons of milk, box of Goldfish, box of French Toast Sticks, bag of Tater Tots, twin pack of apple juice.
Price Chopper: Wheat Bread 2 loaves @ .99 each, Danimals Yogurt .99 after sale and coupon, Banquet Pot Pies 6 @ .39 each, carrots for $1.29 per 2 lb bag, 3 pound bag of onions for $1.49 and 7 pounds of pork loin for $12.35 ($1.79 pound). The tissues and paper towel weren’t on sale, but Nick said he needed both ASAP (he’s caught the cold the rest of us had). According to my PC receipt I saved 55% there!
HyVee: Orange Juice 2 half gallons @ .99 each, Eggs 2 dozen @ $1.09 each, Deli Ham 2 pounds for $2.99, Frozen Veggies 7 bags @ .50 each, DiGiorno pizza and breadsticks for $4.88 after sale and coupon, Campbell’s cooking soups 4 cans @ .79 each after sale and coupon, Pasta Sauce for .79, Apple Juice 3 for .88 each (these were a special mark down from $.198 at the Belton store), Kellogg’s Frosted MiniWheats 2 @ $1.49 each after sale and coupon, Kelloggg’s Cocoa Krispies 2 @ $1.49 each after sale and coupon, Malt O Meal cereals 4 bags @ .50 each, Farmland Sausage 2 @ .44 each after sale and coupons, bananas @ .39 lb, Dole Sweet Lettuce blends 2 bags @ .99 each and one bag of Dole Caesar Salad for free thanks to sale and a coupon on another bag of lettuce I bought. The mayo was on an “alright” sale at $2.50 a jar. The boys seem to not like Miracle Whip, which was all we had left here at home! The eggs, canned tomatoes and canned tomato sauce weren’t on sale, but were things I needed today.
I also swung by Target to pick up some toilet paper, paper towels (if you haven’t tried their Up & Up brand of paper towels you’re missing out!), light bulbs and deodorant for Nick.
Total before Sales, Tax and Coupons (just for HyVee and Price Chopper): $144.89
Total after sales and coupons: $63.73 – 56% off overall
