I had so much fun at the grocery store tonight...seriously. When you hear about it, I think you'll agree. Everything in the picture you see was purchased for a grand total of $44.47!!! Here's how:
Meijer had Jello coupons on their Mealbox site for $1.50 off of 2 boxes. My store had Jello on sale 5/$3....so when I bought 4 boxes and used 2 coupons, I had 60 cents left over. There is a Catalina coupon that prints for $2.00 off your next order when you buy 3 boxes of Jello, but the Catalina machine will only print one coupon per transaction. So, I did multiple transactions, combining 4 boxes of Jello with one other small item and the coupons. Then I used all of those $2.00 coupons to pay for my last transaction. How many total transactions do you think I did???
Hold on to your hats....17! Yup, 17 separate transactions! My cashier was AWESOME! Here's the sum of what I bought:
64 boxes of Jello (small ones - 4 servings), 3 large cans of tomato sauce, 3 loaves of bread, 1 dz. eggs, 2# margarine, 2 family-sized frozen meals, 1 box pancake mix, 1 pkg. american cheese slices (24), 1 4 pack of toilet paper, 3 boxes of cereal, 1 frozen lunch meal, 1 gallon of milk, 2 6-pks of yogurt, 1 Breyers ice cream (1.75 qt), 2# spaghetti, 1 jar REAL bacon bits, 2 bottles chewable vitamins (100 ct.), 4# Gala apples, 1 bottle soft scrub, 10# potatoes, 1# ham, 1 pkg. gourmet stuffed chicken breasts, 1 bottle honey, 1# shredded italian blend cheese, 1 Humidifier, and 1 pkg. pencils/erasers (stocking stuffer for Camden).
Total savings (coupons, sales and promos): $147.32!!!
Joel laughed when I wanted to take a photo first, but I'm glad I did. God has certainly blessed us in many ways when it comes to finding deals on groceries.
Feel free to drop by for a visit....I'm serving Jello every day!
