Here's a Weis(PMITA)Markets shopping trip I did last Friday but put on my October food spending.......
2 packs of steaks, 2 packs of kielbasa and 3 tubs of turkey lunch meat were all instant meat discount stickered. The kielbasas was $2 a pack after sale/sticker, the lunch meat were $1.50 each after sale/sticker and all steaks were $5.52 total after $5 in stickers.
The spaghetti sauce was the Friday Freebie.
The Palmolive dish soap is part of a "Spend $10/Get $3 off Instantly" Deal. It is a Colgate Brandd deal and Palmolive is owned by them. The deal goes off regular shelf price and that is 2/$5 on these dish soaps but are on sale the 2/$3, which made it $3 for all 4 bottles. Not bad, $1.33 for each, and these are the large dish soap bottles.
The large cans are greens and were on clearance for $1 each. But they rang up regular price of $2.
Weis has discontinued it's "if it rings up incorrectly, it's free" Policy. Boo!!! I just got the $2 overcharged back.
I also bought a gallon of milk, 2 canned frozen OJ and a 50% bakery apple pie on this trip.
All together this trip cost me $29.13 and the savings rate was 49%. But since CS gave me cash I am tallying it up as a $31.13 trip and putting the cash into my refund envie. ;-)
On Sunday I went to Big Lots as they were having their 4 times a year 20% off sale.
I really didn't need much as I had loaded up on tp at Weis last week but I did buy a few things........
I got a 3 lb. bottle of honey, a bottle of Bulgogi sauce, a box of RL biscuit mix(an impulse buy),2 boxes of hefty baggies(1 quart/1 gallon), 4 small cans of tomato paste, a jar of pickle relish and 2 bags of Knorr's rice mix. The relish was on clearance for .48¢(also got another 20% off so .38¢ out the door for that)because it had chipotle pepper in it too. Will be interesting to try.
All this plus a pack of napkins and a case of bottled water(not pictured)came to $26.78. I saved $24.28 off of buying this stuff other places at reg. shelf price w/out the 20% off too.
Then on Monday I went to Rite-Aid.
Kellogg's cereals were part of a "Spend $40/Get $20 BC" Deal, I had enough points to cash out of my Kellogg's account for 8 x $1/1 Qs, Savings Star had a $5 rebate on $25 worth of Kellogg's items and there were some Kellogg's Ibotta rebates too. So I bought all this.......
All the cereals here and the Tide are part of a "Spend $40/Get $20 BC" Deal.
10 x Kellogg's cereals on sale 2/$5=$25.00
3 x Tide laundry detergent on sale $5.99=$17.97
8 x $1/1 Kellogg's IPQs(from my Kellogg's Rewards Account Pts.)=$8.00
2 x .50¢/1 Kellogg's assort. "Fall" cereals IPQ from their website=$1.00
2 x $2/1 Tide L2CQ(1 for pods/1 for liquid)=$4.00
1 x $2/1 Tide liquid ManQ=$2.00
$42.97-$15.00=$27.97 paid for with combo of all my BC and gift card.
I earned back $23 in new Bonus Cash($20 Spend $40/Get $20 Deal, $3 wys $12 on select Fall foods).
The $3 BC on fall foods was unexpected but it looks like the Special K pecan and cinnamon variety and the reg. Frosted Mini-Wheats were included in that offer. Sweet!
I also got back $5 from SavingStar for buying $25 in Kellogg's cereals and amazingly I just looked and it'a ALREADY in my account there!
Unfortunately the only Kellogg's Ibotta rebates I had on cereal were for Frosted Flakes and those weren't part of the Rite-Aid sale. *whomp whomp*
In the end I paid $27.97+.72¢ tax on the Tide=$28.69 in BC/gift card and got back $28 in BC and SavingStar cash rebates. Not a bad haul for .69¢ OOP. ;-)
I am $57.91 into my October food spending. Things should slow way down on the grocery spending for the rest of October unless Hubs goes off the deep end(he is not a price watcher)while I am away.
Now I am off to do my end of month Sept. figures and calculations. Oh goody! lolz
