I did my shopping early this week and didn't do a whole lot of it. I don't even plan to shop at CVS or Walgreen's this week *GASP*. That's what I like about having a nice stockpile, I don't HAVE to go shopping! I did go to Walmart and Brookshire's for the sales and few good deals, as well as milk, produce, etc. I also stopped in Dollar Tree for bread and picked up a couple of things at Target.
Brookshire's had a BOGO sale this week so I was able to get some good deals and have restocked my freezer!
Purchased: (BOGO for $.01)
(2) Fast Fixin's chicken @ $7 = $3.50 each
(2) Ground Turkey @ $3.80 = $1.90 each

*you can search the coupon database on the right for the specific Qs that I used during my trip. I threw the post up during a small window of time and didn't have time to get the info for you. I know there are several Qs for the Granola bars.
I didn't save a lot with coupons at Walmart this week, and I didn't do any price matching. I did get a few deals on produce and the frozen pizza, however.
Fresh corn on the cob was on Rollback for 10/$1 so I grabbed 10 of those to freeze. Strawberries were on Rollback for $1/lb, so I grabbed 2 of those to freeze. (My little one LOVES them!) The Totino's frozen pizza was on Rollback for $1 each. I bought 4 and used a $.50/4 insert Q making them just $.86 each. (These are cheap lunches!) I also grabbed 2 Pictsweet frozen veggies for $.96 each and used a Q for $.75/2 making them $.59 each. The Borden singles were $1.98 and I used a $1/1 Q to get those for $.98. The tiny bottle of Heinz is $.60 in the deli and I used a $.50/1 Q, making it just $.10. )Figured I'd stick it back for a picnic or camping trip.) I also grabbed 2 gallons of milk, Sweet 'n low, chips (my Hubby pleaded for the Julio's!), tuna, sour cream, biscuits and cinnamon rolls along with bananas, avacado and cilantro (for tonight's pork chops!). I grabbed the bread at the Dollar Tree for $1.
Total spent: $31.90
Total saved: $2.75 (not including Rollbacks - I forgot to check the regular price)
I grabbed 2 small boxes of granola bars (from the $ spot) for $1/each and used a $.50/2 insert Q making them $.75/each.
The Lipton was $1.97 each and I used a $1/2 Target printable and a $.60/2 insert Q making each box $1.17.
Total spent: $3.84

And that's it!! I plan to do no more shopping this week!! I spent more than I normally do to stock up on the deals at Brookshire's but I still came in UNDER budget for the week!
