I must apologize that last week I completely forgot about Friday Finals until Sunday. We were having a precious day visiting my 91 year old grandmother in Florida, and just didn’t have coupons on the brain.
If I had posted a Friday Finals, it would have been to just tell you that we didn’t shop that week, but decided to eat out of our pantry before traveling for a few days. This week we did go shopping though. I went to Publix and stocked up on a number of BOGO sales and lots of fresh produce. I’m trying to get more intentional with Weight Watchers again now that I can’t use the I’m pregnant excuse. I only grabbed two products that even have coupons available, but was able to use a Food Lion $5 off coupon to help a tad.
Total before sales and coupons: $101.31
Total Spent: $64.35
Total Saved: $36.96 or 37%
While this may not seem wowing, this was a very planned trip. I intentionally purchased nothing in the juice, snack, and prepared section other than Old El Paso Taco shells (on sale B1G1). I also grabbed:
a whole chicken, beef roast, 5 lb clementines, 2 avocados, salad blend, 2 lbs of carrots, 4 tomatoes, 1 pk. strawberries, cherries, olives, pepperoni, 2 packages of shredded mozzarella cheese and canned tomato sauce.
With this we can make:
Sunday Beef Roast with potatoes and carrots (already had the potatoes)
Taco Night with home-made guacamole (already had beef)
Make Your Own Pizza night (we make our own gluten-free dough)
Salad with Strawberries and Chicken
It’s a little over budget for us, but I’m happy with the plan for meals and having so much produce.
