Here's the breakdown from my Schnuck's trip on Wednesday:
Shelf cost: $111.13 (total amount I would have paid had I bought everything for it's shelf cost)
Discount: $27.59 (total amount of savings due to "sales")
Coupons: $21.75 (total amount of coupons)
Out of Pocket: $61.79 (pre tax)
Plus, I got a $5 Catalina to use on my next trip to Schnuck's!
My best buy here was probably the 8 roll Sparkle pack. On sale for $4.99 plus I had a $.50 coupon! That's only $.56 a roll for name brand paper towels! WOOT! And I have been completely out of paper towels since the weekend. I was waiting for a "deal" to arrive before buying more!
Breakdown of Country Mart trip on Wednesday:
Shelf cost: $62.29 (total amount I would have paid had I bought everything for it's shelf cost)
Discount: $9.46 (total amount of savings due to "sales")
Coupons: $17.16 (total amount of coupons)
OOP: $35.67 (pre tax)
I also bought two 15 lbs bags of potatoes for $2.99 each that wouldn't fit into this picture!
I shop at Country Mart on Wednesdays because this is the day they double coupons up to $.50; however, I didn't use any $.50 coupons, so I didn't double any. And, I bought 10 boxes of Nabisco products toward my Nabisco $20 Mail In Rebate. I still have to purchase 5 Capri Suns and 5 Mac n Cheese bowls to qualify, but I'm waiting for a coupon/sale combo to score these for cheapo like the 100 Calorie boxes were. They were only $1.50 after sale/coupon! I love these for my kids' school snacks, but NEVER buy them because they are TOO expensive. These were definitely my best purchase at Country Mart considering I'll get $20 back in MIR!
Holy Crap! Was I super excited after my Shop N Save trip this afternoon! Here's the breakdown:
Shelf cost: $78.65
Manufacturer Qs: $20.50
Q Thursday: $10.00
That's a savings rate of 62%!
I think my best deal was the Wanchai Ferry dinner kits. The SRP is $4.88, on sale for $3.50, Q for $1/1 for a total of $2.50.
In case you're wondering why I bought so many...I shop for two houses. Joe works in Chicago, so when I see an outrageous bargain I pick up as many as I can for him too.
So all-in-all, I had some amazing shopping trips this week! My total savings for these three trips was
Shelf Cost: $252.07
TOTAL SAVINGS: 50.57%
Since my Pantry Challenge last month, this is the first major grocery trip since December! I'd say I did pretty well!
