We didn't need much this week thanks to a few recent "stock-up" trips, so I went to a some stores that I don't always have time to go to...including the Goodwill store and Ollie's Bargain Outlet. I know it's not grocery related, but I LOVE to go to the Goodwill to look for books for my kids. At $0.35 a piece, it's an inexpensive way to treat them! I found some bargains today...including books by Tommie de Paola and Eric Carle, plus a hardcover Fancy Nancy book! Ollie's didn't have much except for Betty Crocker fruit snacks for $0.99 a box. We were out and my husband LOVES fruit snacks, so I bought a few boxes.
My best deal of the day was at Walgreens where I got 2 cans of Clabber Girl baking powder for FREE after coupons! (Well, I paid $0.03 for tax, but that's about as close to free as you'll get!) :)
I also went to Kroger for one set of Mega Sale items (Kleenex, Nestle water bottles, Doritos -a sick present for my hubby-, and a carton of half & half) and some veggies, milk and eggs.
And, unfortunately, I was FORCED to go to Walmart for a few non-grocery related items, so while I was there, I picked up a bottle of honey. :)
Here are my totals for the day...
Total value of all purchases (22 items from 4 stores - not including Goodwill) : $56.53
Total amount spent oop after sales and coupons : $34.63
Total amount saved : $21.90 or 39%
