I went to Weis(PMITA)Markets Wednesday and spent $55.69.
I didn't intend to spend that much but when I got there, I found out that the Kimberly-Clark/Colgate Catalina Deal also included Toilet Tissue.
So besides the produce, tea, shredded cheese for $1.87 and the .57¢ PowerAde, I bought this stuff.....
2 x Palmolive dish soap on sale=$5
1 x Huggies baby wipes refill on sale=$5.99
1 x Scott TP=$10.29
1 x Scott TP=$9.39
This lot totaled $30.67 after sale prices and should have made a $10 Catalina spit out at the register.
The machine only spat out a $5 Catalina.
So I went to the CS desk and raised hell.
After coupons of $3.50 my total was $27.17 on these items.
All I can figure is that they counted the total after coupons( so it qualified for the spend $20 and get a $5 Cat). But the sales ad advertising this deal didn't say it was the total AFTER coupons so I raised hell.
When I take the time to go over to the CS desk I know I am right and I will stand there until they see things my way or I will return every single item. ;-)
So the CS person gave me a $5 gift card to make up for the $5 I was shorted in Cats. A gift card is nicer since I don't have to spend it within 2 weeks like the Catalinas require you to do.
While in Weis(PMITA)Markets, I saw this too.....
No, I did NOT buy any of those.....bleh.
If you want something that tastes like a cappuccino, drink a cappuccino!
Taters should taste like taters......ok, maybe a little salt and vinegar, barbecue sauce or sour cream and onion. 8-)
I also hit up Rite-Aid this week for this.....
4 x Compleats on sale $2.50=$10.00
2 x Command hooks on sale BOGO50%=$7.03
After my 2 x $1/1 Command product Video Values Qs I was out $15.03
Unfortunately for me there were NO Compleats IPQs available....until today($1.50/3). argh!
I'll take 1 Q up today and get $1.50 back "post sale".
I got $3 +Up Rewards for buying the Compleats too.
Between the $1.50 coupon $ I'll get back and the $3 +Up, it will cover all but .16¢ for 2 cases of bottled water on sale for $2.33 each at Rite-Aid this week. I guess I'll be picking up water today. 8-)
The Compleats were requested by #2 Son for a shelf stable emergency foodstuff at school.
The hooks were also a need for college. He inherited a new pack of poster sticky from his sister's time at college so this should be enough to satisfy his "hanging needs" at school. hehehe
Then I went to the local independent grocer yesterday and spent $20 as well. I bought 2 bags of frozen veggies, 2 bags of frozen French fries(for #2Son), a hunk of liverwurst(for Hubs)and 4lbs. of ground beef while it was still on sale(sale ends tomorrow). I went off menu last night and added a package of ground chicken and a package of sausage meat to make and cook a meatloaf and served it with the last of the leftover zuke casserole.
I also made/cooked off 19 HUGE meatballs from that meat mixture for later use. I still have some of the ground beef left so will make a burger for myself for lunch today(out of lunchmeat and had tuna already this week)and brown up the rest for a pot of chili I am making this weekend.
I also spent $21.15 on dog food at Big Lots this week. They had an instant $5 off WYB $25 of Purina items. That amount got me a 17lb. bag of kibble and 23 cans of Alpo.
I also picked up the last of #2 Son's college needs at Big Lots.....
1 x clearance stoneware dinner plate(small to fit into a microwave)=$1.50
1 x pot holder=$2.50
1 x mini colander=$3
1 x can opener=$4
1 x scissors=$1.80
That pot holder is nicer than mine! lolz
I have spent $96.96 on groceries(and dog food)this week so far.
The $28.60 at Rite-Aid & Big Lots will come out of the college needs fund, not the food budget for August.
So much for my low spend week!
