I still had some free item coupons to use up on December 31st so I hiked up to Weis Markets.
I had Free Item Qs for the Dole fruit cups so they were better than free since they were marked $2 each and the coupon scanned at $2.59 each.
I also had Free Item Qs for the Cheese so that cost me nothing.
1 box of the Barilla Plus pasta was free and the other 2 were BOGO with the other VocalPoint Q, so $2.19 for both boxes.
I picked up the Weis brand of Rigatoni just because we were out and it was marked down to .79¢ a box.
The best deal was just shy of 5lb. total of Ground Beef at $1.39lb on special. It's the fatty stuff so I'll just mix this with some lean stuff and use it in recipes where I need more 'moisture' in my meat.
Value of items....$44.32
Savings of....$33.13...or 74.75%
Weis also had pork tenderloins, LARGE tenderloins for $1.47lb. last week. I didn't buy one this trip on Friday, but sent Hubs back up Saturday afternoon and they were out, don't give rainchecks for it and the butchers had left for the day. But the manager told him to come back early Sunday morning and he's let him have one for the sale price even though the sale was over on Saturday....cool!
So Hubs made the 1st food purchase of 2011.....a 10lb. pork tenderloin for $14.75.
Sorry, I didn't get a picture before I hacked that baby up.lol
I made 25 boneless pork chop medallions and a good sized pork tenderloin roast which I marinated before freezing.
Food/Toiletries Spending for January 2011.....$14.75
