A Shoprite run
While the inital month following the grand opening of this new store is over, there remain deals to be had. The grocery list is getting long, so I decided to run over this afternoon and get some of those items, as well as take advantage of the deals. Pictured are 3 pkgs of English muffins @ 79 cents. This was a rainchecked item from a few weeks ago. The customer service person apparently gave me the full amount possible, so after marking the rain check, it was returned to me, still good for another 9 pkgs. One of the joys of owning a freezer is stocking up on items. These are 20 cents less than what Aldi's gets.
Dairy: almost out of both types of milk, I also got $1.25/8 oz block of cheese (Cheddar, Colby), 2 types of Galbani cheese sticks(been a very long time, had cpns), a 1/2 wheel of Provolone (this SR doesn't sell cheese ends, I had asked), a wedge of Parmesan, a block of Mozzarella, 2 doz eggs (sale plus cpn)
Pantry: 3 boxes oats, 2 huge boxes Cheerios (sale plus cpns), 8 cans low salt Goya beans (sale plus cpns), pepper relish, 2 jars Ragu (sale plus cpn), beer for Sunday's beer battered fish.
5 lbs Russets (cpn), organic Romaine hearts (cpn), tomatoes on the vine @ 99/lb, Swiss chard. Not organic but it's from Canada, and I willingly buy their produce. This hails from Trudeau Farms in Quebec
2 pkgs of Chicken Italian sausage. Sale plus $1.50 each pkg due to doubled coupons
Taxables: 4 bottles of color care shampoo: sale plus BOGO coupon, I got all 4 bottles for a total of 5.98 or $1.49 ea before tax-nice; a pouch of dishwasher tabs on sale plus $2 off cpn=score!, 2 9 count pkgs of TP-again sale plus $1 off each cpns=$5.99 for TP that normally sells for $9.49. Thud! The $6 is about what I pay for Aldi's, which is what I normally use.
Love seeing all of those cpns coming off. Total: $103.21
Before leaving the shopping plaza, I stopped at Dollar Tree for more peanuts, peroxide and a can of Spanish black olives to try. $4 total.
