grocery day

June 4th, 2010 at 11:53 am

Several things didn't go right today on my grocery trip. According to the reciept I saved 87%, but I would have saved more if more of my e-coupons had worked. It's weird how you dwell on the couple of things you didn't get free, instead of all the other things you did get free or made money on Smile I guess they bug me so much because these particular things were stuff I wouldn't buy unless they were free or cheaper - hamburger helper, Nut clusters, chex mix.

I spent $10.25. $5 for the food pantry. Some of the rest was for nieces first apartment stockup.

Safeway is having a buy 8 or more and get $4 off sale, so I had to buy at least 8 of the sale items, after the first 8 they were all at the sale price. So I didn't have to buy in multiples of 8.

    I did a similar deal on the Mac&Cheese except my other purchases were for cake and icing. Nephew graduated from college Smile and the party is today. Among other things, I am doing some cupcakes.
