I don’t really need anything grocery wise, but I did head out for a few deals this week.  I grabbed some of the top deals in Bi-Lo and spent a big $9 and then headed to CVS for toothpaste and Target for a new Food Saver.  My plan wasn’t to buy the FoodSaver but the price was so good that I grabbed it to give to my mom.

Let’s start with Bi-Lo.  Here’s the shopping list I used.  I didn’t deviate from the plan, just grabbed these items.  The most expensive thing I got was table napkins and that was something we needed that thankfully has a coupon.

Bi-Lo Totals
Total Purchase Value: $70.93
Total Spent: $9.29 (after Mobile Apps)
Total Saved:  $61.64 or 87%

We are picking up meat from Zaycon this week so it was nice to not spend much at all to help cover the cost of the meat.  Technically we already paid for it, as you order and pay long before they arrive, but it’s nice to have room in the budget for it.

CVS was just a toothpaste run.  I had $7 in ECB so we only paid the tax and left with $8 in ECB for next time!

(2) Colgate Total, 4 oz, $2.99
(2) Colgate Total 5.6 oz, $3.49
(2) -$2 off Colgate total advanced, enamel health or sensitive toothpaste, 3 oz+, SS 03/05
(2) -$1 off Colgate Total toothpaste, 3 oz+ pritnable
-$7 ECB
Total Due: nothing + 11¢ tax
Got Back: $8 ECB ($4 from each deal)

This is really a no brainer, why not spend 5 minutes running in for 4 tubes of toothpaste when you are going to make money to buy them!  I love CVS…

Lastly was the Target FoodSaver trip.  I explained this deal in a Facebook live along with the differences between different models.  If you’ve been wanting a FoodSaver, this is a great week to grab one (the deal ends Saturday though).  We saved right at 50% off the sealer and off a 5 roll box of refills.

Total Value: $121.58
Total Spent: $60.81
