Grocery Trip

by GettingFreedom on October 16, 2008

I made a quick dash into town today to refill a prescription and I figured since I was already there I might as well make the most of it. So, I stopped by the local grocery store to pick up some more of their ads. I got one in the mail, and quickly noticed that it had 8 kraft free wyb coupons! Free coupons for free items…I’m definitely game! I refrained from grabbing the entire stack of ads, and just grabbed 2.
Today must have been my lucky day. Since I live in a very rural area, we do not have any “larger” chain grocery stores. They are chains, per se, but only in like the southern-ish part of my state, not a national chain. Well, I don’t know if that has anything to do with it or not, but I very rarely find tearpads or peelies in our stores. Not today!
The only bad part was, every employee known to man was around, and I didn’t feel comfortable taking more than like 3 of a coupon off of a tearpad. Oh well, better than none!
Also, we never have “manager specials” or awesome closeouts that I always hear people talking about. Because of this I have always wondered what they did with their old stuff. Today, I just so happened to find a cooler full of “Closeout For Quick Sale” items. My heart began to race, I was so excited.
I was quickly deflated. $2.99 for Kraft Shredded Cheese that expires today, IS NOT a closeout. Give me a break, sale prices are better than that! I came this close to asking them if they could just drop a nine and take .29!! I decided against it…afterall I live in this town!! :)
But, I still scored loads of coupons (atleast to me!) for free…and still was able to get some pretty good deals.

(3) Fast Fixins Chicken Stips 2/$4
(2) Nestle Choc. Chips 2/$3.50**
No Name Mustard .99
Roll of sweettarts .79 (not pictured..Noah and I ate them!)
Coupons Used
(3) $1 Fast Fixins IP here FP: $1 ea
(2) $1.50 Nestle IP FP: .25 ea
**I really should have said something because the shelf said the choc chips were $1.55. They would have been .05 after coupon..instead they rang up $1.75 ea. It is SO hard for me to say something when it is a relatively small amount of money, and I have already saved big.
Total
$5.49
Used money from Scrubbing Bubbles Starter Kit Rebate -$3.79
OOP $1.70!! 7 items, .24 each. 85% savings!!
