Grocery Deals & Rite-Aid This Week

I went to the town West of here to grocery shop this week.  The Shursave market in town here doesn't accept internet printed coupons so I have to shop at the Shursave market West of us to use IPQs.  Plus they also have a Weis(PMITA)Markets in that town.

The Shursave market shop looked like this........

2 x reduced mushroom packages $2 reg. retail @.99¢=$1.98
1/2 lb.+/- of ham deli meat @$4.99 lb.=$2.67
4 x Kellogg's cereals $1.88 each wyb4=$7.52

I used these IPQs.....
1 x .40¢/1(doubled)Raisin Bran IPQ=.80¢
1 x .40¢/1(doubled)Frosted Flakes IPQ=.80¢
1 x .50¢/1(doubled)Corn Flakes IPQ=$1.00
1 x .50¢/1(doubled)Rice Krispies IPQ=$1.00
Coupon Total......$3.60

$12.17-3.60=$8.57 OOP
The cereal came out to 98¢ per box after sale/coupons.

Then I hit Weis for 7 more boxes of cereal......

2 x Lucky Charms $1.47 wyb4 GM cereals=$2.94
2 x Cheerios $1.47 wyb4 GM cereals=$2.94
3 x select Kellogg's cereals $1.99 wyb3=$5.97

Coupons Used
2 x Lucky Charms $1/1 IPQ=$2.00
2 x Cheerios $1/1 IPQ=$2.00
1 x Frosted Flakes .40¢/1(doubled)IPQ=.80¢
1 x Apple Jacks .70¢/1(doubled)IPQ=$1.00
1 x Corn Pops .70¢/1(doubled)IPQ=$1.00
Coupon Total.....$6.80

$11.85-$6.80=$5.05 OOP for all 7 boxes.
Plus there is a $1/2 rebate on select GM cereals on Savingstar dotcom so after that comes in the 7 boxes will cost me $4.05

As I only eat Raisin Bran and Cheerios of that above what the kids don't want(or the nephew)will go to the Food Bank.

Then I hit the mother lode of discounted meats at Weis in this town.
If only I had had more room in the chest freezer I'd have bought more.

Altogether I got-
9.32 lb. pork shoulder picnic
7 lb. whole chickens
3.52 lb ground lamb
5.76 lb. boneless/skinless chicken breast

30.46 lbs. of assorted meats for $27.65 or an average price of .90¢ a lb!

The b/s chicken $1.23 lb.  Marked down to $1.98 lb. but the packages each had $2 instant discount stickers on them.

 The ground lamb $1.98 lb.

The pork shoulder was marked down to .98¢ lb.

The whole chickens .59¢ lb.

They also have pork butt $1.28 lb. and ground beef $1.69 lb.(but it was 73% lean so I wasn't interested in that).
I could have scoffed up 20 more pork butts, 12 rolls of ground beef, and 11 more packages of chicken or lamb or whole chickens, plus chicken leg quarter packs equally as cheap if I had freezer space.
But I didn't so I left most of it for others to find.

In the meat group shot there are also two packages of Oscar Meyer deli meats. These are regularly $4.50 per package but were on sale for $3 yesterday.  These two packs had $2 instant discount stickers on them so they each cost me $1.

Some whack biscuits(on sale and I had Qs), 50% off Bakery items(muffins and bagels)and 2 boxes of decaffeinated tea bags and 3 8-packs of Powerade for Daughter(on sale for $3.99 and I got $3 off for "spending" $15 on Coke/Nabisco items-based on regular shelf price-so the drinks were $8.97 for all) brought this shop to $59.23.
I used the $6.48 left on one of my Weis gift cards(which were paid for in 2016)so I am OOP $52.75 for everything I bought at Weis Markets.
My savings percentage on both of these shops came to 60.88%.

Meanwhile at Rite-Aid.....

The town also has a Rite-Aid where the prices aren't jacked up higher like in my Rite-Aid so I did the nail polish Sally Hansen Deal on two of our cards.......

4 x SA nail color BOGO50%($2.99/$1.49)=$8.97 + .53¢ tax=$9.50
Paid for with Plenti points.
Earned $10 in new Plenti points($5 for every 2 bottles bought)so a .50¢ moneymaker.

I did that deal on two of my cards.

I also popped into my Rite-Aid on the way home to see what first Wednesday(Wellness Wednesday)samples they were giving out............

Saline wipes and pain patches I took home.

And after seeing what the 1 day only coupons were I decided to buy this.........

4 x Russell Stoveer sugar-free candies reg. $2.79/$2.23 with 20% Wellness discount=$8.92
I used 4 x $2/1 RS sugar-free candies 1 Day Wellness Wednesday Qs=$8.00 making each bag .23¢.
So I spent down my Plenti points .92¢ to get 4 bags of candies.
I am such a spendthrift, aren't I? lolz

Unfortunately they were out of the thin mints variety(my fav)but I got some other kinds to try.

I spent $61.32 on everything pictured above(plus more).
Regular retail value on everything I bought was $191.82.
Not a bad day's worth of shopping, huh?

And looking at all these photos I just realized that I still have my Xmas tablecloth on my kitchen table.



  1. Those are seriously good prices on meat and everything. Do you have to have help getting things out of the chest freezer? I imagine you need a stool, but can you lift things out? Right now, I need a pain patch. It is amazing how cheap everything was.

    1. I have trouble only with the contents on the very bottom so I put those things in shopping bags so I can lift/reach them with a grabber thingy.

  2. The food bank will love you, I found white meat turkey bologna for 1/2 off.... First of all bologna (yuck) second, turkey bologna (double yuck) Third who cares if it is white meat? It is bologna. I passed.

  3. Sorry to digress, but does anyone know what happened to "Thrifty at Sixty"? She gave no warning that she was going to quit.

    1. You must have missed her last post Carole. Google/Blogger shut down her ad revenue on the blog so she shut down the blog. She said she was going to start over on Word Press.

  4. Thanks for answering my question.
