So this week I didn't get any shopping in until the last day for the Mega Event - Wednesday (at my locality, in Northern Indiana...the sales run Thursday - Wednesday). Coinciding with the Mega Event at my local store was also their Grand Re-Opening, as they have been doing some updating to the store lately. Bonus for me! In addition to the great sales they were already having, my store had Milk & OJ 1/2 gallons for $.99, Colgate toothpaste for $.99, Bananas for $.25/lb. - and a few other goodies that I didn't take advantage of.
Here are the best deals I got:
10- Colgate toothpastes: $.99 - $.75/1 coupons* = $.24 each!
10- Quaker Rice Snacks: $1.00 - $1.00/1 coupons* = FREE!
10- Suave Deodorants: $1.00 - $.50/1 coupons* (doubled to $1) = FREE!
10- Kraft 2% Cheese: $1.99 - $5 Instant Rebate - $.75/1 coupons* = $.74 each!
4- pkg Ekrich lunchmeant: $1.00 each
4- pkg Ekrich Pepperoni: $1.00 each
4- 1/2 Gallons Milk & OJ: $1.00 each
5lbs Bananas: $1.46
I picked up a few other odds & ends but those were the major bargains. I finally got a good start to my deodorant and toothpaste stockpiles - for cheap! Now I won't *have* to buy those- I only will need to buy them when I can get them for free, or really cheap. I still don't have a big stockpile of many things, but at least those few things are in place, plus I socked away a lot of rice snacks, which we love for a pretty healthy snack, and cheese (most of which is in the freezer now).
Grand total: $136.65 (price before card savings & coupons)
Total OOP: $35.56!
Total Savings: 79% (I think! I am not sure if I am calculating this correctly...?)
I hope everyone else snagged some great deals as well!!
