more grocery shopping

March 21st, 2010 at 12:46 pm

Went to King Soopers today and bought some more groceries. The receipt says I saved 78%. I spent 19.21 total, 3.25 for food pantry items. I haven't even spent $5 of the $20 I have budgeted for this category this month, even though I've bought lots of groceries for them, I'll have to catch up.

Free items

q = coupon
wyb = When you buy
OYNO = On your next order
BOGO = buy one get one

8 packages Bumbleebee tuna .49 cents wyb 8 - 3/.55 cents q's doubled and 1 $1/5 q

6 Snickers candy bars .50 cents and I had 3 .50 cent q's that doubled

2 boxes Ronzoni Penne pasta 1.00 wyb 8 - 2/.75 cent q's that doubled

1 box Ronzoni spagetti 1.00 wyb 8 - .75 q that doubled

1 Betty Crocker warm delight 1.50 - .50 q that doubled - .50 ecoupon from shortcuts

1 bag Chex Mix 1.50 - .50 q that doubled - .50 ecoupon from shortcuts

2 jars Plantars Dry Roasted peanuts 1.99 wyb 8 - 2/$1.50 q's and then there was a q on the jars for $1/2 that the cashier rang in while ringing the order. I told her I didn't want to use that one since I had better q's but she said I could use both, so it made them free.

Cheap

2 packages Oscar Meyer bacon 3.00 - 2/$1.50 q's and I got a $1 OYNO q when I checked out. These were beautiful, so often the bacon looks like you're just buying fat, these had a ton of meat and looked wonderful

4 packages Land O Frost turkey and ham 3.49 - 2/$1 q's and 2 BOGO q's. I see a lot of soup and sandwiches in the next week.

1 box Advil PM 20 ct 4.00 wyb 8 - $2 q

2 Ore Ida hash browns 2.29 wyb 8 - $1.50 q

5 boxes Kraft Mac n chees - .85 - $1/5 q

Not on sale but needed

Denver Post
4 bananas
1 rib celery
3 brussel sprouts - I'm going to try roasting these since several people recommended them but in case I don't like them I just got a few. I love that the grocery store sells small portions of veggies now. I used to waste so much which was another reason I didn't like to buy veggies. How long are brussel sprouts good for?

I'm over 500 on my gas points, (400 from buying gift cards) so .50 cents off a gallon next month - I don't know if I'll make it to 600 points

The following items will go to the food pantry

8 packages Tuna
3 packages Pasta
1 Betty Crocker Warm Delights
1 bag Chex Mix
5 boxes Mac n Cheese

I have a batch of beans going in the crock pot for dinner today to which I'll add the left over sausage from earlier in the week. I've gotten a ton of free or really cheap (.25 cents) Mission tortillas in the last 3 months. I have 2 in the freezer and 1 in the refrigerator, I've used one and given away 9. I've been making various versions of tortilla chips with them. Tonight to go with the beans I'll make garlic chips.

Preheat oven to 350

Put tortilla(s) on cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray. Cut into 8ths using a pizza cutter. Sprinkle garlic salt and pepper. Cook 8 - 10 minutes. These are very good and you can store them in a baggie and microwave for 30 seconds at your next meal.

I've tried several variations on this in the last month and this one is my favorite, but I like using Red Robin seasoning or Cinnamon sugar also.

I finished reading my book The Magical Christmas Cat - Romantic short stories. Very good.
