I didn’t get a chance to share my Shopping trip last week so I thought I would share both trips at one time today. Here’s a quick look at what I picked up last week, I grabbed a lot of the awesome Target Deals including the Luvs Diaper Deal and the Formula Deal using the $20/$100 Target Baby Products Coupon! This coupon is still available so make sure you print it out.
I also stocked up on Paper Products (See the deal here)
And I grabbed the Scrubbing Bubbles Gift Card Deal (Details Here) – Still going on this week
Another item still available is the$0.52 Market Pantry Vinegar which is great for Dying Easter Eggs :) Get all the details here.
As you can see, last week I didn’t buy many groceries, only the few items that were marked down to my stock up prices like the frozen meals my Husband takes for lunches (These were under $1 last week) and we needed Cheese so I picked up 3 bags with a cartwheel coupon and a target coupon stacked together. Other than that we really ate mostly from what we had already on hand and then we were out of town for a few days so I really didn’t even buy Milk or Eggs or Produce last week.
It’s nice to have some slow weeks where you don’t purchase groceries, I typically do this about once a month where I buy relatively little and eat from our stock pile, that helps me be able to have a stock up trip for meat and other items on sale!
This week I stocked up on Produce which was on sale at Aldi’s! Strawberries are on sale for $1.29 so I picked up 6 by price matching at Walmart. I’ll probably have to freeze a few of these but I also use this technique to help them last longer in the fridge. We eat about a lb. a day so they really don’t go bad too fast at our house :)
Apples were $2.99 for 3 lbs. Not the best price but they were cheaper at Aldi’s than anywhere else in my area so I grabbed a couple bags.
Carrots were $0.99 again, not the greatest price I’ve seen but the best price I could find this week.
Oranges were $1.99 per lb. Broccoli was $0.99 per package and Zuchini was $1.69, and the Peppers were $1.69. Eggs were on sale at Walgreens for $1.29 you can price match those typically at Walmart also.
For everything shown I paid $25.03 which is pretty good for fresh produce and eggs!
I also stocked up on cheese this week! I was SUPER EXCITED to see my local grocery store Harps having B1G1 Free Sales :) This was a first for them, they also had the prices listed in the ad which meant I could price match at Walmart and get everything in one place!!!
Kraft Shredded Cheese was $2.99 B1G1 Free – $1.50 per package
Kraft Singles, $4.29 B1G1 Free – $2.15 per 16 oz. package
Kraft Block Cheese, $2.99 B1G1 Free – $1.49 per package
Capri Sun 100% Juice – $2.99 B1G1 Free – $1.49 per package
The best part, those prices were 50% off and I didn’t have to use any coupons!!! I love these 100% Juice Capri Sun for taking on trips, these pouches last so much longer than juice boxes when you put them in an ice chest so these are one of my favorite buys of the week :) Normally these things are $3-$4 per box and you rarely find the 100% Juice version on sale so I was really excited to find these still in stock when I got to the store.
Something I wanted to point out this week, if you follow my shopping trips you’ll notice I do a lot of stockpiling like this. I don’t buy 20 of something, but I will buy 7-8 packages of cheese or 5-6 boxes of juice when they hit my stock up price. That will last my family a while and gives me time to find another sale on the items we use.
Stockpiling when items hit lower prices means that I don’t have to buy everything I need each week and lets me buy everything at the lowest price.
