Shopping Trip 12/17/09: Major Shopping Week

Publix (shopping day Sunday 12/13)
I've been saving my coupons from the All the Trimmings booklet and finally was able to use them today and BOY HOWDY!!! I was so excited! The Sargento shredded cheese 8 oz bags were on sale for $1.67 and had a peelie on them for $1.00 off Bertolli pasta sauce, which happened to be on BOGO this week. Plus I was able to use the FREE egg coupon WYB two Sargento cheeses. What a weird combination but I'm not one to complain about cheap food. (normally I would not have purchased so much spaghetti sauce but they had an end-cap FULL of Bertolli sauce so I didn't feel bad about taking so many -- there were at least another 50 jars left...)

Kroger (Shopping day 12/17/09)
I try to shop at Kroger on Thursdays because they frequently run their Kroger 3 Day Sale Thursday-Saturday.  I can get the week's deals along with whatever the 3 Day Sale might offer.  Today, they had Mayfield Ice Cream on sale during the 3 Day Sale for $1.99, so I got one.  We haven't had ice cream in so long, I can't remember the last time I bought some.

Wow, you sure got a lot of shopping done! Great savings too! I was able to find the coupons on the Bertolli and on the cheese, fantastic deals!

Wow, where do you live that a gallon of milk at Publix is only $1.99? In FL it's $3.19! Great savings!

@Greta - we're in the Metro Atlanta area. A week ago or so the milk was $2.49 a gallon. It's amazing how much the price can change depending on the region. Aldi had milk for $1.49 a gallon a few weeks ago and I just about freaked out and thought about buying 6 (limit was 6) and realized if I did, I'd have no room left in the fridge for anything else! :)
