Groceries and Easter Goodies

I went to the store this morning --- rememered by coupons, but forgot my list....DOH! So of course I failed to pick up a couple items. However, I did pretty well, regardless..... here's how my trip went:

1 Pepsi
6 Publix Whole Green Beans
2 Airwick Freshmatic Refills
2 Coffee Mate Creamers (yes, creamer is in every grocery picture... I have coffee issues)
2 4.4 lb. bags Pedigree Dog Food
1 Red Baron Pizza
1 Bag Dove Promises (caramel filled)
1 Lays Potato Chips
4 50 ct. Mentos Gum
1 Kelloggs Pop Tarts
2 bags Starburst Jelly Beans
1 Ritz Crackerful
2 Kraft Mozzerella
3 Kraft Shells & Cheese and/or Deluxe Mac and Cheese
4 Kiwi Fruit
1 Bag Red Potatoes
1 Breakstone Sour Cream
1 Dole Pineapple
2 Betty Crocker Frostings
1 Immaculate Baking Cookie Dough
1 Pillsbury Cookie Dough

Spent $57.87 and Saved $67.44 or 54%

I was a bit frustrated that the shelves were cleared on some of the sale items, but I perked right back up when I remembered this is a long sale, so I still have time to pick them up after my work trip next week.


  1. Must have been all of those extreme couponers clearing the shelves...

    Sounds like you did a great job! I either forget my list or the coupons! I think I would rather forget the list..the coupons save money!

  2. Definitely better to forget the list! Since I had the coupons I was planning to use at the front of my file, the only items I ended up forgetting were ones that weren't coupon or sale friendly!
