This was a "recovery" week for me, in that I was making up for last week's large spend on great deals at Albertson's. This was also a more typical week in that I was largely buying things we were out of or needed for the menu, rather than just bargains. Luckily Albies and FM had some great loss leaders and sales so I was able to spend right about at $22 for everything pictured below.
My favorite deals included the muir glen tomoates which were on sale for $0.89/can and I had a $1 off coupon for each of them! The Fresh Express Salad Kits were $1 (raincheck from last week) and I had one $0.55/1 coupon, so two salads for $1.45 total.
Other than those I got:
2 3lb bags of apples
5lbs ground beef
4 boxes oatmeal
1 large container oatmeal
parmesean cheese (no sale or coupon...just needed for a recipe for company)
Total: about $22
I also stopped at Walgreen's for the fabulous RR deals they had to get some goodies and more staples. This doesn't come out of my grocery budget at this point, but probably should:) I got 6 cans of ragu, 2 skippy PB, 4 cases pepsi product, 3 chips, 1 dip, and 1 box of hair color for $26 and received a $10 RR after the two transactions (I got another, but I used it for the pepsi/tostitos deal). I may go back to "roll" my register reward if I have time this week:) The SoyJoy bars that M is fascinated with in this pic were free...on sale for BOGO plus I had a BOGO free coupon!
Final stop was Rite Aid for the amazing Huggies deal. God has blessed our preparation for baby girl #2 due in May and after all the rebates come in I will have spent around $5 for 2 packs of diapers and 2 wipes! The shaving cream were on clearance for $.92 and Daniel needed them.
