Way too Early in the Month for This Kind of Grocery Spending!
Anyway, I went yesterday to finish getting what I need for the several cookouts we are going to this weekend plus a few other things....
2 Publix Lemon-Lime Soft Drinks
1 Nesquick chocolate milk (I don't normally buy this, but a coupon plus a plea from the Princess and I went ahead with it)
1 Wavy Lays
1 Adams Flea & Tick Mist (a manufacturer coupon plus a publix coupon made this $10.79 item only $4.79! and fleas have been an issue this year)
2 Bush's baked beans
1 Publix Red Beans
1 Iams weight control (a $5 off any manu coupon made this .79)
1 Lance Cracker Creations
1 Heluva Good Onion Dip
1 Broccoli Florets
2 Emerald Trail Mix
1 Reynolds Wrap
4 Ramen Noodles
1 Bertolli Pasta Sauce
2 Emerald Nuts
2 Publix Cheesy Shells
3 Mueller's Pasta
1 $50 Shell Gas Card
Spent: $85.37, Saved: $47.77
Actual Hit to Grocery Budget: Spent: $45.37, Saved $37.77 -- or 43%
What REALLY kills me though is that I forgot to get toilet paper even though it was on my list! I ran into someone I knew on the paper products aisle and started chatting, and then forgot to get the TP! So that means another trip to the store! Ugh.
