My Shopping Day

I lead such an exciting life--grocery shopping, Rite-Aid shopping, gas station, bank.
Rinse and repeat every week mostly.

After the snow passed this morning, I headed out under sunny yet cold skies.

First off Rite-Aid...........

2 x Irish Spring Gear Body Wash on sale=$6.98
2 x Dove Men's Body Wash on sale=$8.00
1 x Vaseline lotion on sale=$2.99

Coupons Used
2 x $2/1 In-Ad Q=$4.00
2 x $2/1 Irish Spring Gear IPQ(coupons dotcom)=$4.00
1 x $2/1 Dove Men's Body Wash MANUQ=$2.00
1 x $1/1 Dove Men's Body Wash IPQ(NLA)=$1.00
1 x $1.50/1 Vaseline CatalinaQ(no size restriction)=$1.50
Coupon Total.....$12.50

$17.97-$12.50=$5.47 + .02¢tax=$5.49

After Qs the Irish Spring Gear is -.51¢ each bottle, so make sure you have other items in your transaction to cover the overage.

I used $5 in +Up Rewards and paid .49¢ OOP.
I received back $4 in new +Ups($2 wyb2 Dove Men's, $2 Vaseline).
And the Catalina machine spit out another Vaseline Q.....

Can you say more free Vaseline? ;-)

$27.85 in items brought home.
.49¢ spent OOP.
$4 in new +Ups


Then it was off to Weis(PMITA)Market to earn another $10 oyno Catalina Q......

10 x Maxwell House coffee on sale=$29.90
1 x Velveeta skillet meal on sale=$2.00
1 x Special K crackers on sale=$1.87(for .87¢ after Q I'll try them)

There was a $1/1 Peelie Q on the crackers which made my total $32.77 OOP.

I received another $10 oyno CatalinaQ for buying the coffee and skillet box meal........

Savings rate of 26%(before getting the $10 Cat).
$44.38 in products.

Then I went back inside and spent one of my 4 $10 oyno Cats......

3 x Gorton's grilled fish 50%off=$9.97
4 x 8 o'clock coffee BOGOFree=$10.98

When you buy 3 Gorton's items in 1 transaction you also get $2 Instant Discount, making my total $18.95 at this point.
Then there are the coupons I used.........
2 x .75¢/1 Gortons grilled itemsIPQ(doubled to $1)=$2.00
1 x .50¢/1 Gorton's grilled item ManuQ(doubled to $1)=$1.00
2 x $1.50/1 8 o'clock coffee IPQ=$3.00
Coupon Total........$6.00

I used the $10 off CatQ so my OOP was $2.95.
That's a 92% savings rate.
$41.93 in products.

The 8 o'clock coffee bags were $3.99 for 2.
The fish cost me $1.66 per box.
But after using the $10 Cat it came to $2.95 for all.

Weis Totals--
Total spent.....$35.72
Total products...$86.31
A 58.62% savings rate combined.
And $10 Cat for free stuff next time.

Weis has turkey breast for .98¢ lb. this week and I will buy as many as I can fit in the freezer this week.
I'll go back for more 8 o'clock coffee(as I have more Qs), some smoked sausage($1.50 a pkg. after sale/Q)and canned tomatoes(.55¢ a can after sale/Q) plus a few more things.



  1. More awesome deals! Would love to find turkey breasts @ 99/lb. I just cooked my last whole bird, no breasts left either. My freezer has plenty of room.

  2. Your life seems a little more exciting than mine, at this point. Mine consists of limiting the amount of Captain Crunch I consume, deciding whether to wash my hair on the current day or put it off until the next day, and praising myself for decluttering my desk.

  3. I think I have a turkey in the kitchen freezer taking up room and another in the big freezer. However, another half dozen turkey breasts would feed me until the end of the year. Since I have a crockpot, cooking a breast would not produce too much heat in the summer. Since I still have not looked at the Sunday ads, this may be my to-do today.
