Grocery Savings

October 8th, 2008 at 03:26 pm

I really worked hard on my grocery list this week. Big Lots sent a 20% off coupon via e-mail and Krogers ad had some items I needed to stock up on.

At Big Lots I was a tad disappointed because I had planned on buying some pantry staples there. Little to none in that department. Using my price book I did purchase some spices I was running low on.

Not to be daunted, I headed to Krogers. I had my list and coupons ready.
Grand Total = $96.63
Out-of-Pocket = $40.96
Savings = 58%!

They had 10# of potatoes on sale for $2.98. Even though I had just purchased 10# the week before, I bought a bag and canned them. Got 5 qts. that can be used for mashed potatoes, quick scalloped,etc. My DIL thought I was nuts for doing it till I explained that I had paid over $5 a bag just the week before (ouch) and they'll go back up to that price after this week.

After the festival I'm setting up at this weekend, I'll go back and purchase 20# of potatoes and do it all over again. They also have hamburger $1.49# so I plan on getting around 10# of that.

    Wow, you canned potatoes! We just paid $2.98 for 5 pounds.

    Yes I did - my first time! I even canned celery in jelly jars a couple of years ago. This year is for another first - making apple jelly the 'old-fashioned' way, using the juice from cooking down 10# of apples to be canned for pies.
