My “Big shop” of the month was nothing special so I didn’t put it up. I did a LOT of shopping yesterday – returned some things to Kohl’s, returned some Christmas gifts to Target, returned some Christmas gifts to Wlamart. Also went and bought potatoes for the month ($10 for a 50lb box) and then went into CVS. I had ECB’s from the Christmas freebies that were expired actually. They expired on Wednesday and I didn’t know it. The manager kindly let me use them anyway. 🙂 I bought 8 12pks of Pepsi brands and a thing of bubble gum. I ended up paying $2 oop and got back $10.50 ECB’s! Plus I got a free CVS cough drops and several other coupons. 🙂
I also went to Kroger last night to take advantage of the Free Steamers – but they were out. They said they’d be back in stock today – so last night I bought 4 Tombstone pizzas ($2.99 each) and 6 cans of Rotel. I didn’t have the Rotel coupons, but I did get all that for $14 after the $5 mega sale deal.
Went back this morning and bought 20 steamers and a pair of pantyhose for $3.71 – saved 46.09 🙂
Ran into my local owned grocery and got 9 meals of pork chops, a family pack of ground chuck, a hillshire farms big pack of lunch meat and a drink for $32. Pork loin was on sale for $2/lb, Ground Chuck for $1.69, the lunch meat on sale for $1 mark down – and then I got a big family pack of pork chops with bone for $1.89/lb. We were OUT of pork chops so I have been looking for a sale – last week Kroger had their tenderloin for $1.98 but they are TINY and I like bigger chops. 🙂
I’ll have to total up what I’ve spent this month – but I’m running cash only and I still have plenty 🙂
