Loves me some grocery bargains (NC) 4/17/10

Our menu plan for this week is here.

My total for this week was $49.80. With our new monthly grocery/drugstore budgeting, I have $59.30 left for the month.

Food Lion, Aldi, Wal-mart: highlights
produce at Aldi can be cheap! It was my first time there. I also got some diced tomatoes that we really needed for $0.55/can. Spinach for green smoothies $2, bananas at $0.39/lb and strawberries for $1.19. Ground turkey for $1/lb was also a deal for me. And the all-important chocolate chips:) Food Lion had skinless boneless chicken breasts for $1.59/lb and I couldn't pass that up. I got about 6lbs,, which should last us awhile! Red grapes at $0.99/lb and wishbone dressing for $0.90/bottle were good deals for us too. At Wal-mart I found Wheaties Fuel on clearance for $1/box and found a coupon for $1/2 in my coupon binder so I grabbed two boxes to try:). Ronzoni smart taste was $0.49 after coupon at Wal-mart and the Brie cheese was free after coupon.

Walgreens:
$2.22 oop used $3 RR and got $5 RR back! Basically the sudafed deal paid for the raisins we were out of and needed!

And finally Harris Teeter: $8.xx
2 packs of Huggies, 8lbs oranges(rang up wrong so they were free after a customer service run!) and lots of yogurt.

What deals did you snag this week?

Wow! Great deals. I never find clearance food at Walmart. I wish St. Louis had a Harris Teeter.

Thanks Jenny! I rarely find clearance at Walmart...this was a lucky find! Harris teeter is awesome...I wish I could take it back to the NW with me when we return! The customer service is typically really good too:)

I know this doesn't have much to do with this particular post, but I had to write you note somehow! :)
I was searching for coupon/savings blogs in Washington state, particularly Seattle and your website popped up. I am a big coupon Mom down here in Southern California. The husband and I feel led to serve in Seattle someday and out of curiosity I started searching blogs. I came across yours and was quite thrilled to see another Mom out there who loved her kids, her coupons and her ESV study Bible! I started cracking up when I saw your John Piper posts... if we lived closer together we'd be couponing, Bible Study pals! Just thought I would say "Hello"!
