Friday grocery shopping

Safeway is having a .75 cent sale on several pantry items when you buy 4 or more. Many of these items are perfect for food pantries. I went this morning and got the following:

7.50 - 10 boxes Kraft mac n cheese

I thought I hsd coupons for the Pasta Roni until I was checking out and realized they were Knorr's Pasta Sides q's. Bought them anyways since they were a good price for the pantry.

I also got:

5.00 - 4 Suave 24 hour deodorant
.33 - taxes
-----
5.33
-6.00 - 2 $3/2 q'a
-----
.73 profit

I got a travel size of Tide for free after 1.00 q and a bag of salad for $1

At King Soopers they still have their $4 off wyb 8 deal, so I got some more pantry stuff plus a few groceries for me

-1.00 - she must have scanned one of the q's twice.
-----
7.71

Total spent on food for me was: 14.03
Total spent for the pantry was: 14.85

The pantry will get:

10 boxes mac n cheese
8 cans chef boyardee
6 boxes pasta roni
3 boxes spagetti
5 pouches tuna
4 deodorants

That uses up all my budgeted $20 for the food pantry with some of the things I got earlier this month. I had only spent a little over $4 till now.

At King Soopers I got a Sunday only subscription to the Denver Post for $28.35 for 6 months. Plus he gave me a $5 King Soopers gift card so really $23.35. Just under $1/week. It costs $1.50 buying direct. Not as good a deal as I have gotten in the past, but better than going out to buy it every Sunday. I already have one subscription but I like to have 2 for the extra coupons. I put the cost of the paper in my food category since the only reason I buy it is for the coupons. It generally pays for itself in about a month.

I got my tax refund $646.00 so that's good, took just over a month.

I finished reading the library book Torch of Freedom by David Weber and Eric Flint. Sci/Fi - very good part of the Honorverse series.

    Bam! Hitting myself on the head! What a good idea to buy this stuff for the food pantry... what am I thinking? I usually dig stuff out of my own cupboards, but why not buy stuff cheap that maybe I would not eat, but someone would! Thanks for making me think!
