3/24 Copps & Festival Run

*Sorry for the delay in posting.  Another busy week!*

Had a pretty successful shopping week again, and kept my grocery spending under $50 which was a big plus for me.  My Copps list got trimmed down a bit due to a few items on the list being out of stock.  I had just enough on the list to plan for two transactions, but with the out of stock items I ended up only having 5 coupons to double and just did one big transaction instead.  Here’s what I did…

  • Roundy’s 24 pack water, 3.99 – 2.01 SSC = 1.98 (not in picture)
  • Roundy’s bread, 1.19 ($1 bread was out)
  • 4 Pepsi 12 packs, 10.00
  • 3 Treetop juice, B2G1, 2.89 each – 1.00 off 2 (doubled) = 3/$3.78
  • Kellogg’s deal; 4 boxes cereal 1.88 each – (2) $1 off 2 MC’s (doubled) = 4/$3.52 (0.88 each), 2 Nutrigrain bars 1.88 each – $1 off 2 MC (doubled)= 2/$1.76, Clever Kids fruit snacks 1.88 – 1.50 = 0.38, Pop Tarts 1.88
  • 2 Campbell’s cream of mushroom, $1 each – $1 off 2 (doubled) = FREE
  • Roundy’s ice cream, 4.99 – 2.01 SSC = 2.98
  • Hormel little sizzlers, 2.39 – 1.61 YY coupon = 0.78
  • Chocolate milk, 2.99
  • 2 skim milk, 4.58
  • -2.50 Personal Perks
  • -2.00 off purchase from Suave
  • TOTAL = $31.94, saved $45.35 (59%)

Also stopped into Festival for several of their sale and store coupon items this week.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 4 Flavorite mushrooms, 0.38 each = 1.52
  • 2 pizza sauce, 0.88 each = 1.76
  • 3 pizza dough, 0.98 each = 2.94
  • 2 Duncan Hines cake mix, 0.69 each = 1.38
  • 5lb. potatoes, 0.68
  • 2 frozen veggies, 0.48 each = 0.96
  • 2 skim milk, 1.48 each = 2.96
  • eggs, 0.78
  • 2 sour cream, 0.88 each = 1.76
  • 3 shredded cheese, 0.98 each = 2.94
  • -0.15 bag refund
  • TOTAL = $17.53, saved $20.44 (53%)

Total spent for the week was $49.47.  Festival really had some great sale items this week.  I used two whole what pizza doughs to make a delicious calzone using some frozen leftover shredded chicken, frozen broccoli, onion, and cheddar cheese.  It was great!  I have one dough left for a simple pepperoni pizza that I will likely be making tonight.  Yum!
