In terms of grocery shopping this week was a good one, but in terms of diaper shopping this week was awesome. The only problem with buying 6 packages of diapers is that we don’t even have children. Ok…so I have to admit that I have been having a baby fever, and no…I am not pregnant.
After work, I was able to stop by CVS and snatched diapers for less than $3 (they were marked down 75%) a package. I figured I could either use the diapers for baby showers or one day when we have children use them then.
I picked up several more baby items that were on clearance and utilized my extra care bucks to pay for my purchase. The best part is that I paid very little out of pocket and received 2 ECB back…woot …woot! And that is exactly why I love bargain shopping…why pay full price, when you can buy items of clearance shelf?! I spent $4.72 on all the baby items and saved $92.34
The rest of the shopping this week I did at Ingles. One day I scored an amazing deal on organic orange juice. The original price for 1 bottle of organic orange juice was $4.99, but the bottle had manager’s special sticker with $1.99. Since my mama is coming in two weeks, I have been trying to stock up on items that she loves and orange juice is one of them! I picked up all three bottles and made my way to the produce manager. I asked what will the store do with juice after the expiration date and the response was, “We can reduce it further for you.” Score!!! He reduced each bottle price to $1.49. So I paid $4.50 for 3 bottle of organic orange juice. As soon as I came home, I put the orange juice in the freezer. Woot! Woot! I also picked up several items from 50% off buggy and didn’t stress a bit that I didn’t have a coupon for the items. I felt like I was getting a pretty good deal.
On Saturday I learned that Ingles will be participating in triple coupon event, so I prepared my coupons to shop on Sunday after church. To say that the store had amazing sales would be a lie, plus I really do not like Ingles coupon policy. You have to spend $10 before 3 coupons can double in value ($0.50). To bring the total up, I stocked up on meat. My mama loves bacon, and I mean loves bacon. The petit woman can eat one package of bacon in one setting. In addition to bacon, I bought ham. It was marked down from $12+ to $5+, needless to say our freezer is full. Once my total was up, I added free beans, soap and ice cream to my cart. And oh yeah…I spent $6 on watermelon. After reading a post at This Journey about Heather's children eating watermelon, I decided to splurge on one! All in all I had a fabulous shopping week and look forward to take my mama coupon shopping when she arrives in 2 weeks!!!!
Total paid: $42.30
