We woke up early this morning and headed out to get the rest of the groceries we needed. First stop was Walmart where I spent $38.85 on food and bought crackers, pretzels, honey buns, tator tots, fries, chicken, lettuce, cream cheese, cheese, buttermilk, lemon juice, strawberry jelly, vinegar, and brown sugar.
Second stop was Bi-Lo where I spent $15.07 and bought 7 boxes of cereal and a free gallon of milk.
Next stop was Cooke's where I spent $42.15 on food and bought 13 boxes of Toaster Scramblers. They were on sale for $1.79, but with coupons I was able to lower the price to $1.34. Each box has a Box-tops for Education label on it also, which I will be able to sell later. My daughter eats 2 of these for breakfast and with 3 servings in a box they come out to 45¢ for breakfast.
I also picked up 8 boxes of Velveeta Cheese & Shells. This was on special, when a customer buys 8 they take $8.00 off, so I paid $1.49 each, which will make an inexpensive dinner when paired with a vegetable. I also picked up cookies, chili, tamales, and several crash and burn items including Fruit Loops for $1.00 and Betty Crocker potatoes for 50¢ a box.
Next stop was Publix where I spent $27.37 and bought ice cream bars, chicken sausages, Basic 4 cereal, and the rest I spent in the crash and burn section because it was filled with goodies. I picked up several cans of Chef Boyardee, smoked sausage, Welch's juice, McCormick salad stuff, and even olive oil.
Dinner was smoked sausage, mashed potatoes, and broccoli.
How was your weekend?
