My Shopping Trips This Week

WHEW!  The week is finally ending and I *think* I'm finally catching up after being gone last weekend!  I did go get groceries since I never went last week and we were completely out of milk for a couple of DAYS!!!   Here are the deals I got:


I stopped at E&S earlier in the week and bought Accent for our homemade popcorn, a big block of cheese @ $1.79/lb., and pepperoni.  I also bought each of my children a treat of Sprees.  My total was $23.09, including tax.

I stopped at Aldi later in the week:

I got the above for $14.34.

Now, time for the deals;)

So YOU'RE the one that got all the juice! I got to Meijer's (Mish.)on Thursday and there wasn't a juice to be found! You lucky duck! I'll never make that mistake again. Next week, I'm doing my shopping earlier in the week so I don't miss out.

Hee, hee!!! Actually, there was still quite a bit there(Elk), so maybe if you want to drive a bit, they might still have some today!

I find that with my CVS all the time! If I wait until the end of the week they usually don't have the really good deals.

Why do 4 transactions? You can do as many buy 10 get 11th free as you want. I had 33 items in one order.

Kelly, I did 4 transactions because my Meijers only double 2 like coupons. My main goal was to get the Steamers for Free. That was the reason I broke it into the separate transactions. Does that make sense?
