Save Money on Grocery Shopping, Part 5a of 5

I'm going shopping today.....

This week I'll be shopping at 3 stores for groceries - it seems like a lot, but one of them is Bartley's Meat Market which doesn't really count because I only by -!- meat and misc. there and I don't use coupons.  In fact, I've already been, and I spent $28 and got: beef short ribs, a roast, a poundish of smoked bacon, a poundish of ground beef, 3/4lb. of block Parmesan, h'burg buns (Hiner's, which I buy only because they are called "sunny buns," of course....)a chuck steak...and I think that's all.  Her prices are really fair, and I trust her ground beef, which she grinds herself.

Next on the list is Food Lion.  I scanned the circular on Wednesday and double-checked it online.  I didn't really see anything great as far as stocking up, but there were a few items there....
  • Holly Farms Whole Fryers @ .57/lb
  • Red Grapes @ .99/lb
  • Nature's Own Butterbread 1.50
  • Arm & Hammer Liquid Laundry Detergent BOGO @ 2/$5
  • FL Raw Shrimp 16 oz. $4, BOGO
I'm out of chicken in the freezer, so I'll pick up a couple hens....

Red Grapes keep the girls happy, and are higher in anti-oxidants than green grapes (on sale at Kroger for the same price)

N.O. Butterbread is Andy's favorite, and is usually priced around $2.19 at WM, so I'll buy a couple loaves at this price and put 'e in the freezer.

And the A&H is great for a stain remover (Remember, I make my own laundry detergent) and I have a good coupon:  here's that scenario:
  • buy 2 A&H Laundry Detergent @ 1/$4.99, Buy one Get one Free
  • use 2 $1/off coupons
  • out of pocket: $3 for 2 (or $1.50 each), which, in my opinion is a great deal. 
I "never" buy shrimp, but lately I've been craving seafood.  FL's policy is if you don't "buy one get one free," you can get just the one item at half price.  So, that means one pound of shrimp for $2. It will be a nice side dish to supper one night. 

Tomorrow, I'll be in Clifton Forge, so I'll go to Kroger....more on that later!
