Yep – that is right you are looking at all of the groceries that I bought this week. The beauty of having a stockpile is that if it is an “off” sales week or you just have a busy week and can’t get to the store you don’t have to. I primarily ran to the store tonight to get the Bambi DVD/Blu-Ray (I am holding it until Easter to give to my girls) and the fruit. I scanned my BONUSCARD and got a coupon for $1 off any $10 meat purchase. I have a freezer full of ground beef, several roasts, barbeque pork, a whole chicken, and lots of boneless skinless chicken breast. I wasn’t planning on buying any meat this week. I walked through the meat department and spotted these nice beef tenderloin steaks marked down from $13.43 to $10.75 with a sell-by date of Tuesday. That is quite a splurge for my grocery budget, but I knew Steve would enjoy them and I was able to use the $1 off $10 coupon towards so they were less than $10. I know we can’t get even one steak dinner at a restaurant for less than $10. I picked up the Kedem sparkling juice after a tip I got from a friend from church. She found them on sale for $1.99 each and they have a tag attached for a $1.50 mail in rebate. You can submit up to 6 rebates per household. These are kosher for Passover and I found them on an end-cap with a display of Passover foods.
So here is the breakdown:
- (2) Kedem Juice
- Bambi DVD/Blu-Ray
- 2.93lb. Bananas
- (2) 16oz. Strawberries
- 0.84lb. Beef Tenderloin Steaks
Shelf Total (before sales, coupons, and tax): $52.96
Final Total (after sales, coupons, bag credits, and before tax): $29.32
Total Savings: $23.64 (44%)
I saved $20.91 with my MARTIN’S BONUSCARD and I saved $2.68 by purchasing the steaks on manager’s special. I didn’t use any manufacturer coupons. I also saved $0.05 by bringing my own bag to MARTIN’S. I will get $3 back when I submit the rebate for the juice.
