I had every thing put away before I realized that I didn't take a picture of the things I bought ,so it will just be a list today.
I started out this trip by picking up a $50 American Express gift card. I used the $10 off coupon that is in the sales flyer and got it for $44.95 after the $4.95 activation fee. This is a money maker of $5.05!! I just love when they have a sale on these, I save so much money by purchases a bunch of them though out the week. I am on the Dave Ramsey envelope money system so I just take they money that is budgeted for my monthly groceries and turn it into a card! I did this transaction twice today, once using $50 of my grocery money and once for $50 of my personal spending money. All totaling a $10.10 money maker!!! Nothing better than walking into a store and having them give you ten bucks right off the bat :) I will check some of my other budgeted money to see if I can buy more this week.
Here is what else I purchased:
14 - birds eye veggies (most of these were green beans for church dinner this week) on sale for 50% off, used 5- $1.00/3 mq (some how I ended up one bag short) = 12 @ .56 cents each and 2 @ .39 cents each because of the one bag missing mistake. I wouldn't have been able to get this great deal if it wasn't for the two very nice coupon girls that I see every week shopping. I asked them if they had any spare coupons and they gave me 4 of the coupons!!!!
1 small ham, sale $9.09
4 sweet potatoes, sale .49 lb = .99 cents
2 zucchini, sale .99 lb = .48 cents
4 yoplait yo plus yogurt, bogo $2.00, no coupon = $1.00 each
4 Pam spray, bogo $2.95, used 4 - $1.00 pq and 3- .35mq (one q short) = .21 cents each
2 Tutt. crushed tomatoes, bogo $1.87, used $1/2 blinkie = .43 each
2 Alexia frozen buttermilk biscuits, bogo $3.39, used 2 $1.00 IP = .70 each
4 dole canned pineapple bogo $1.59, used 2 .50/2 = .55 each
3 kraft shredded cheese with philly, sale $1.67, used 3 $1.00 blinkies = .67 each
2 snickers eggs, .50 each, used $1/2 = FREE
I spent $29.31 not counting the gift cards, saved $62.24 or 68%
Not bad for getting the extras this week for my Easter dinner and the beans for the church dinner!!!
