Cherry picking the deals this week, getting a few needs
As usual, I combined sales plus doubled up to 99 cents coupons: Demerara sugar $3.29, baking powder $1.99, 4 bags peanut M & Ms @ $1.49 each
low salt turkey breast (not on sale), 80% ground beef $2.99/lb
3, 120 count boxes Scotties tissues @ 67 cents, can of shaving gel @ 99 cents, OTC eye drops $11.99 but zero out of pocket as I paid with my HSA account, after using a $5 coupon.
Swiss chard @ $2.49/lb, 5 lbs carrots @ $2.99
coffee $5.49, 2 Oj @ $1.99, 6 boxes of herbal tea @ 99 cents (not a typo!) These (not the coffee) were all part of a "breakfast promo" where on buys any 6 of a select list of items already at reduced prices and then gets $3 off the order, limit 2 breakfast promos.
American cheese @ $3.99/lb and a wedge of Parmesan @ $4.49. I also got 1 gallon of milk and 2 cans ready to eat, Progresso clam chowder @ $1.49, kind of pricy but good for a quick meal at home. I spent $72.45 out the door
