Double Coupon Wednesday Shopping & Other Deals

I didn’t get to Ukrop’s until late again this week.  We got back into to town around mid-afternoon today, but after unpacking the car and getting everyone and everything in the house we were all ready for naps.  By the time we all got up it was time to hit the ground running so that we could get over to church. 

I really just loaded up on essentials that we were out of because of our trip and I did find a few close-out items that I splurged on.  I even bought a bag of potato chips for Steve. 

Here is a picture of my purchases tonight – because of junk miscellaneous items on the kitchen table I choose a different setting. 


  • Charmin Ultra Strong (12 double rolls) - $5.38 (not pictured)
  • Food Club Fruit Crisp Mix - $0.45
  • Joe’s Market Flatbread - $1.50
  • (2) Ken’s Ranch Dressing (8 oz) - $0.75 each
  • (4) Dole Mandarin Oranges - $0.50 each
  • Swiffer Dusting Cloths - $2.99
  • Ukrop’s Bottled Water (24 pk) – $2.49 (not pictured)
  • Grandma Utz Kettle Chips - $2.50
  • Tums Smoothies - $1.59 (I needed them ASAP)
  • Oscar Mayer Fully Cooked Bacon - $1.48
  • Perdue Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (2.83 lb) - $5.32
  • Perdue Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (2.55 lb) - $4.79
  • Organic Gala Apples (1.73 lb) - $2.92
  • Bananas (2.69 lb) - $1.32
  • Cucumber - $0.99
  • (2) Earthbound Farms Organic Spring Mix - $1.89
  • D’Anjou Pears (2.55 lb) - $3.29
  • Alouette Spread - $1.84
  • (3) Joe’s Market Biscotti - $1.50 each
  • Reusable Bag Credits (-$0.10)

Shelf Price (before sales, coupons, bag credits, or tax): $113.50

Final Price (after sales, coupons, bag credits, before tax): $50.53

Total Savings: $62.97 (55%)

This was not my best shopping trip, but almost half of my spending went to a little over 5 pounds of chicken breast for about $10 and about $12 on fresh produce.  I also picked up some household items like the toilet paper, the swiffers, and the bottled water (for trips).  I guess I am just trying to justify my $4.50 for 3 packages of biscotti. :)

Did you find any great deals this week?  Feel free to share.

Hello! I've been following your blog for a few months now. I love Ukrops and hadn't shopped there in a long time. Then, I discvered coupons and have returned in recent months! Just wanted to say thanks. This week, my store started marking lots of clearance in the frozen section. They said it wouldn't keep through the remodel so keep your eyes open their too. I got boxes of ice cream cookie and stuff for a dollar each (this was a splurge for us!)

Great find! Being a pregnant woman with this hot weather I could really go for ice cream right now - I will have to go check it out. Thanks!:)
