Grocery Store "Restocking" Trip

Had to do a major “restock” after being on vacation for 2 weeks! I got whole slew of stuff for $89! Way over budget, so I’ll have to spend less the next few weeks to “make up for it”. I took advantage of the save $5 when you buy $25 worth of P&G products…really stretching it by using paper coupons and “e-coupons” to save the most I could. I ended up saving 41%.
Things I got free or nearly free…2 Cottonelle TPs, 1 Crest toothpaste, 2 Colgate toothpastes, beechnut baby foods (to donate), Simply Asia Thai Dinners (on closeout and had a coupon), PAM (on sale and a paper coupon and an “ecoupon“), 2 3-pack nighttime lavendar Johnson Buddies (on closeout and paper coupon), and a bag of Dole lettuce for $.50 on Manager’s Special…and lots more!
I had to buy several bags of produce to restock my produce drawers, including apples, oranges, grapefruits, potatoes, onions, broccoli, peppers, melon and bananas.
Hope y’all have a great week shopping this week!

    Looks like a good trip…I had to do some restocking this week too. The holidays really drained my stockpile.

    I really need to take some lessons from you – I thought you got a great haul for $89! If I could just spend $100/week I’d think I was successful.

    I do lack the couponing skills you seem to have perfected – but I’m going to try and get there. So please keep up the great examples

    I haven’t shopped yet since two days after Christmas. And…I’ve decided to use up all the pantry things that have “old-ish” dates on them first. … plus I re-organized my downstairs pantry and discovered I have quite a few of some “samesies”…so…. this week I am doing pasta suppers… some soups and freezing a batch of stuff by adding a bit extra to each meal (kind of like planning for company, but it is for us instead)… I call them plan-overs. Maybe I’ll shop next week….

    I was so happy to read the recipe for Dominican Rice and beans 😉 I am Dominican so that gave me a big smile ;P
    I read on your comments of that day that people were concerned bc of the bag for isolation, I use a bag too, my whole family has all my life and no harm done here, but if you want you can substitute the bag for a porcelain plate it works the same 😉
