Lots of little shops at the stores this week.
In between doing other things it seems I am constantly running to the grocery store.
Well at least I get some exercise shopping this way. lolz

On the way to pick up College Boy from school I stopped at the Surplus Outlet to see what they had I could use for cheap.......

Then I hit Weis(PMITA)Markets for the Friday only Deals when we got back home.

Of course they were out of the main thing I went for but I did pick up this stuff............

Savings rate of 60%. I don't know why the receipt only shows $4 in coupon savings.....I guess the Weis book Q doesn't show up on this? but it did take off $5 in coupons.

After sale/coupons, the chili was .50¢ a can, the facial tissue .53¢ a box and the OM smoked sausage was $1.49.
I will also get a $1 rebate for buying the pizza from SavingStar as that is their freebie offer this weekend.

College Boy requested cheese steaks for dinner on Saturday so I changed up the menu plan and bought those steaks and rolls.  CB will also eat that pizza for lunch one day while he is home.

Saturday while at Rite-Aid to pick up an rx I bought this........

2 x Scott tp 4 packs on sale $2.99=$5.98

I used 2 x $1/1 Scott tp IPQ=$2.00

$5.98-$2=$3.98 using my Plenti points.

Savings rate of 49% plus I earned a .75¢ off ur next order Catalina for buying the pickles.

Then I bought $100 in gift cards using household maintenance and eating out funds for 2016.........

This earned me a $10 off your next order Catalina and 20 gas points.
I plan on using that $10 oyno Q to help pay for the roast I am going to cook for Christmas dinner.

This brings my weekly grocery spending to $100.21 on $213.64 reg. retail worth of groceries so I am at 53.10% savings rate for this week.
Even so, I am going to have to slow down if I am going to stay at/under $350 of spending for the month.
