Where I had my cataract surgery.
1 Day out and we're doing fine. Do you think this Ray Charles look will catch on?

In preparation of my not being able to drive for about a week(due to my cataract surgery)I withdrew my May food budget monies from the bank this past week and spent a good part of my time before Thursday hitting up the various stores for groceries.
I'll add that I was getting antsy to get out of the house anyway, as the impending house-bound period coming up was closing in on me. ;-)
I went to Ollie's(Good Stuff Cheap!)as I had a 10% your shopping trip card sent to me earlier in the year that was expiring soon.......

I used a $5 Target gift card I had making it--
And I earned another $5 Target gift card for buying 3 of these, so $2.62 OOP or .87¢ each.
Then on Wednesday I hit Weis and the local Shursave stores one last time.......

1 x Chicken thighs on sale=$3.55 *

2 x Glad plastic wrap=$5.66
2 x Glad trash bags=$11.38
*The Old El Paso was on sale plus if you spent $10 you got $3 off a pack of beef or chicken, so the thighs only cost me .55¢ after the discount was applied.
I also had clipped a SavingStar electronic Q for $1/3 OEP items so I'll see another $1 rebate in my SavingStar account soon, meaning 8 cans of chiles and a pack of chicken "cost" me $9.55 in the end.
**The Kingsford and Glad products are part of a Spend $25/Get $10 OYNO Deal. I spent $26.03 and earned $10 rebate on next purchase.
The Glad items also counted toward my SavingStar Spent $25/Get $5 Rebate Deal and put me over $25 for that, so I'll get another $5 cash in my SavingStar account.
After all savings and rebates I "spent" $37.14 on this order.
Then one last trip to Weis(PMITA)Markets......

I am most proud of snagging these though......
They were on sale this week for $6.99 each.
With $3 off instant stickers made them $3.99 out the door.
That's $2 a lb. for ground beef!
When College Boy is home there are many burgers and tacos consumed so this was a great buy just now as he is coming home next weekend for the Summer.
If you don't want to use them as burgers it's no trouble at all the thaw and chop them up to make taco filling. A multi-tasking food purchase. lol
I spent a whopping $191.43 on food this week during 6 shopping trips.
Regular retail on what I got was $312.70.
And I earned $21 in cash rebates and/or store credit for later.
