10/18-10/24 Shopping Wk---Lots of little trips this week!

This was a crazy week of running around.
It was some fun but now I need a nice slow sales week to kick back and enjoy all my Starbucks and olives (no, I'm not pregnant!).
I was very excited about the olives at Walgreens! DD1YO loves Olives!
Total Spent (Cash) = $76.30
Reaction: Shocked!
I forget how quickly all those small trips add up.
On the other hand we did buy quite a bit of meat, some chicken
and a few other great items for our stockpile.
Next week...less trips= less money spent!
I made a few more trips today, 10/23 and had a bit of fun with my dear friend D.
I rushed home for dinner and completely forgot to take pictures of my bounty.

(1) bag of Organic Short Grain Brown Rice @$1.99/lb
(1) bunch of Organic bananas @49c/lb

Mother Earth's is where we buy bulk items. Mostly spices, salt, rice, and couscous.
They have an amazing cafe which is hard to resist while shopping.
This lovely store can definitely be a deal breaker for my budget!

(1) Santa Cruz Limeade $1.39
(1) Barilla Whole Grain Penne $1.25
(2) Starkist Pouches $1

Total= $6.26 including tax

So, I had to cash in on these store coupons which require an additional $15 purchase. I decided to use some of the $3 Glade IPs since they are expiring on 10/31 and helped bring my total above $15. For some reason the Starkist Store Q attached to the pouch instead of the can and so I ended up getting some overage on that as well as from stacking the Pepsi Store Q with the MQ.

(1) 5.45lb package of Bottom round Beef @99c/lb

(4) 50c/1 Starkist IP doubled

(4) Starkist Albacore Pouch $1 each
(1) Loaf of Pumpernickel Rye Bread discounted to $1.14
(1) 5.54lb package of Bottom round Beef @99c/lb

I normally don't buy juice boxes but we are responsible for snack at DD's pre-school tomorrow and they have a rain- date for a field trip so we had to plan a last minute portable snack instead of the usual big bottle of juice that we bring in.

(2) Pkg boneless chicken breast @ $1.39/lb

Jalapeno Peppers 42c

Adams is a Hudson Valley market with great produce (often local) and great poultry/meats.
We usually buy 40lb bulk bags of chicken breast and separate and freeze, but this $1.39/lb price is even better than the normal bulk rate!

(1) Glade Fragrance Collection Item $6.99
(1) Glade Sense and Spray Starter Kit $5


CVS Flu clinic $5/$25

In fact all I paid OOP was tax!
CVS hasn't had the greatest deals IMHO lately, so I wanted to use up some of my ECBs on the Glade Fragrance and soda. We've been out of soda for a week and DH likes to have one a day!
