This Week at Giant!

Last night we did this weeks grocery shopping. In theory, we do this Monday nights, but since we are starting this (strive for) $35/week grocery budget reletively new, and Octobers (higher) budget was gone, we decided to wait for November 1st. Now, we don't usually get sugary cereals (even though I love them), but they were the ones on sale (see below), so we went with it. :)

Here's what we got (I'll try to work with formating in the next few weeks, I'm trying to figure the best way):
Mott’s Applesauce ~ 46 oz Natural (not on sale, but cheaper than the brand that was on sale and DS 11mo. usually has this for breakfast with oatmeal)

5 boxes General Mills Cereal (on sale 5/$10, and prints out $5 off next order when buy 5) ~ Original Price $12.85

2 Boxes Post Cereal (on sale 2/$4 ~ plus I had a coupon $1/2) Original Price $5.18

3 Hallmark Cards ~ 2 birthdays and a just because (Had a coupon giving gas rewards to save us $.20 per gallon on our next fill up when you spend $8 on cards, and a coupon for $2/3 ~ and on sale) Original Price $8.98

8 Navel Oranges (on sale 4/$2) Original Price $7.92

Bananas (on sale for $.42 a lb.) Original Price $1.25

Tomatoes (on sale for $2.49 a lb.) Original Price for .51 lb. $1.78

5 lb. Potatoes (BOGO with 3 lbs. Onions)

3 lb. Onions (BOGO with 5 lbs. Potatoes) Original Price $2.99

1 lb. Carrots (not on sale)

Bagged Salad (on sale 2/$5 ~ bought one bag) Original Price $3.49

Strawberries ~ DH requested to go with cool whip we recently thawed (on sale for $2.99 each) Original Price $3.99

2 Gallons FF Milk (not on sale)

Coupon ~ $.75 off next order from Gerber

Coupon ~ $1 off next order from Dole

Coupon ~ $1 off order of $5 or more

Coupon ~ $3 off order of $50 or more

Total before Savings = $61.57
Total after Savings = OOP $38.78
Total Savings = $23.27 (plus $.20 off per gallon next gas fill up!)

We did go over the $35 (especially considering the $5 we spent at CVS the other day), but we are still getting used to all this couponing and such! :) And... we save on gas, and they printed out that $5 off your next order coupon from the cereal. :) So fun! I can't wait till Monday (or whatever day we get around to it) to come again! Who knew spending money could be this much fun!
