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