Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.
It was a week of extremes—temperature, that is. From a record setting high of 85 degrees early, to a bone-chilling 41 degrees today, it’s been pretty weird.
On the shopping front, I found lots of good deals on food. There wasn’t a single item that I needed or wanted at the drugstores, so I skipped them altogether.
Green grapes, sale price $0.99/lb. Total: $5.81.
Eggplant, sale price $0.99/lb. Total: $4.93.
8 Signature Kitchen frozen veggies, sale price $0.69. Total: $5.52. (There was a strict limit of 8, or I would’ve bought much more.)
4 Excedrin, sale price $1.99. I used 4 $2.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: Free.
3 Avocadoes, sale price $0.99. I used a $0.75/3 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: $2.22.
Bananas, sale price $0.39/lb. Total: $9.74. (Some for eating, some for freezing, some for baking.)
3 Skippy peanut butter, sale price $2.00. I used 3 $1.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $3.00. (I prefer Jif, but this is okay.)
Cains mayonnaise, sale price $2.50. I used a $2.00 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: $0.50. (Also not my preferred brand—Hellman’s is the best—but a good price.)
Turkey breast, $0.99/lb. Total: $8.03. (I roasted the whole thing and turned it into one dinner, two lunches, and chili.)
We wanted to go apple picking. Intense rain changed our minds. Instead of picking our own, we bought a bushel that had a mix—Cortland, McIntosh, Macoun, Crispin, Gala, and Jonagold. The price was $50.00, for about 42 lbs. That is slightly higher than a grocery store’s cheapest apple, but we enjoy supporting local farms.
Have you used any coupons lately?
