As you can tell by the shortage in grocery store match up posts lately, the Farmer's Markets are in full swing around here. With a 1/4 cow in the deep freeze, weekly visits to pick up my CSA share, and full health and beauty stockpile, I haven't been spending much time in the grocery stores. I make my weekly jaunt to Whole Foods for my case of organic milk and any Whole Deal super deals. I've also been hitting up Trader Joe's every 1 1/2 weeks for lunch snacks and quick meals to pull out when we just don't feel like cooking from scratch. Oh, and preschool is out for the summer. Shopping entails having a 2 year old helper who likes to push the cart, doesn't need to hold hands, and often enjoys taking off down a different aisle. Needless to say, I don't get as much accomplished and sometimes just don't shop.
Anyways, I will be hitting/have hit a few stores this week.
1 case of 365 Organic Skim Milk ($5.79/gallon x 4 gallons - 10% case discount)
365 Brand Organic Soy Sauce ($1 IP or from the Whole Deal flyer in store)
$2 Newman's Own Pasta Sauce (Q from 6/5 makes it $1 after doubling)
June Dairy Month- Buy 7 participating items get $5 off. I was wondering if this includes Sargento Shredded. If so, that would make it 7 x $2.50= $17.50 - $5 = $12.50 or $1.78/pack. Not fantastic, but not horrible. I will probably just walk to the store to get my pasta sauce.
$1.49/lb red grapes
$.67 Sobe when you buy 15 We keep these in the pantry in case anyone gets sick and needs rehydrating. No petrol based dyes, artificial sweeteners, or HFCS.
$2.99 16oz shredded cheese- have to keep 32oz on hand for home made pizza
B1G1 Filippo Berio Olive Oil 25.3oz ($1 Q 04/03/2011 SS)
$1.79 Natural chicken breast family pack
The one store that I have no problem with toddler in tow. He loves the singing animals and all of the "try mes".
Free after ECB and coupon Oral-B Pulsar limit 2($3 06/06/2011 PG)
Free after ECB and coupon Crest Pro Health 1ltr limit 2($2 06/06/2011 PG)
Free after ECB Excedrin limit 2
$.41 mm after ECP and coupon limit 2 ($1 06/06/2011 SS)
I prefer to shop on Saturdays after 10a so I can work the current week's deals and next week's deals. It won't work for me this week because I'll need coupons from 06/12/2011. The 06/12/2011 newspaper will pay for itself at CVS alone, by the way.
This is definitely a different type of post. But, I thought it might be useful to share my shopping list. I always have friends and family ask what I'm buying week to week. In fact, I get a weekly call from my mom asking me what she should be buying this week. Hope this is helpful to some of you.
