End of March Shopping......$152+ Worth of Stuff for $20.38

I had some Free Item Qs expiring on the 31st, so off to Weis I went....

2 x Purina One Beyond Dog Food $7.49=$14.98
*I had 2 Free Item Qs so these were free.
2 x Food Should Be Good Chips $2.99=$5.98
*I had 2 Free Item Qs so these were free.
1 x DiGiorgno FlatBread Melt $3.29 on sale=$3.00
*I had a Free Item Q that took off $3.29 so this was better than free!
9 x Furmano's Tomato Products on sale $1=$9.00
* I used 3 x $1/3 ManuQs(expiring 3/31) on these so 9 cans cost $6.00 or .67¢ each.
The bag of potatoes was on sale for $3.99.
The lettuce was on sale for $1.50.
The salad greens were BOGO=$3.79/2.
The Kielbasa was BOGO=$4.49/2.

I spent $20.38 OOP.
Regular retail was $65.61.
My savings was 69% which is very good for a grocery store around here.  I usually only attain 50% at the most on the grocery store trips.  Rite-Aid as well as other drugstores, well, that's another story!lol

Speaking of Rite-Aid, yes you KNOW there had to be a trip there somewhere in this post, didn't you?! ;-)

2 x Fritos on sale $1.99=$3.98
2 x Robin's Eggs candy on sale $1.50=$3.00
1 x Skittles candy on sale=$.50 *I thought I needed this filler item to use my +Ups.
1 x Hershey's milk single bottle=$1.79  **Not pictured**
1 x NightGuard raincheck used=$4.99
2 x Colgate Toothpaste raincheck used $.99=$1.98
2 x Reach Toothbrush raincheck used $.99=$1.98
3 x Motrin PM raincheck used $1.00=$2.98 *The cashier rang 2 up for .99¢ & 1 for $1.
2 x Orbit Gum on sale BOGO=$1.29

Coupons Used
1 x FREE ITEM Hershey's milk single bottle ManuQ=$1.50 max. value of Q
1 x $5/1 NightGuard IPQ=$5.00
2 x $1/1 Colgate Toothpaste IPQ=$2.00
2 x $1/1 Reach Toothbrush Tearpad Q From Dentist Office=$2.00
2 x $1/1 Motrin PM Homemailer Q from company=$2.00
1 x $2/1 Motrin PM ManuQ=$2.00
1 x FREE ITEM Orbit Gum Home Mailer Q=$1.29
Coupon Total.....$15.79

I used $6 in +Up Rewards and put the .70¢ on my Rite-Aid gift card.
No +Ups were earned in this transaction.
I will submit for the $3 April SCR for the NightGuard product.
I used $6 in +Ups but will get back $3 in SCR so I burned $3 in +Ups on this trip.

I didn't count on my Wellness discount NOT coming off the Hershey's milk(dairy in PA is exempt from your discount evidently), so I had picked up the Skittles to make sure I was at least up to $6 so I could use my 2 x $3 +Ups to pay. With a disc. on the milk it would have been $1.43, giving me a total before Qs of $21.63 without the Skittles. Subtract the Qs and I am at $5.84.  I just may go return the Skittles later today since I didn't need them and I didn't use a Q on them.

I still have $12 in +Ups that expire this evening so I'll head back up to Rite-Aid to pick up some things we need/want that are at least on sale.
Next week is a big +Ups week as I have $89 more in +Up Rewards expiring.  I have plans to roll a fair amount of them if the stores are stocked.  Stay tuned for that....

  1. So if I send you my list, will you shop for me? Now that is a business you should go in to!

  2. SonyaAnn....I don't think I'd do well as a personal shopper. I'd end up arguing with the person that they wanted to buy all the wrong
    But feel free to come over and we can go shopping together!!
