(Combined Target and Price Chopper)
I started my shopping on Wednesday at Target. I got:
3 boxes of Jello
6 bricks of Cream cheese
1 package of Recycled Reynolds foil
Pretax total was $4.30. I saved $9.78. Off to a good start!
After that, I went to Price Chopper. I got:
1 Betty Crocker cake mix
1 Betty Crocker frosting
1 package of Mission tortillas
1 can of Eagle Brand
1 can of artichoke hearts
2 boxes of Wheat Thins
1 box of Triscuits
2 boxes of Quaker Maple oatmeal squares
1 lb of generic butter
3 bricks of Kraft cheese
1 bag of Kraft cheese
1 bag of frozen spinach
2 2 lb packages of Strawberries
My pre-tax total was $24.09. I saved $36.06.
On Thursday over lunch, I ran to Hen House. I apologize because the picture turned out very bad. This is what I picked up:
1 package of Bumblebee Lemon Pepper tuna
2 64 oz containers of Tree Top apple juice
2 Aunt Jemima syrups
1 box of Quaker Hazelnut Latte oatmeal
1 dozen Eggland's Best eggs
1 gallon of Robert's hormone free whole milk
1 Jimmy Dean breakfast skillet
My pre-tax total was $14.96. I saved $16.00. (My quarterly store savings total came out at $177.09. Pretty good since I don't do much shopping there!)
And FINALLY, I took the girls to Hy-Vee. We went because I THOUGHT the big cans of mandarin oranges were on sale, but it was the little cans. We didn't even get any! We ended up with a few other things and a serious eye injury. It wasn't the best trip, but what's a mom to do?
Here is what we got:
1 package of unsalted butter
1 package of SunMaid raisins
4 Coke 12 packs
2 Cara Cara oranges (Expensive little buggers!)
3 lb bag of organic oranges
My tax total after $10 credit was $8.40. Definitely not my best trip ever. We might have been better of had we just NOT made this trip.
We're having Easter dinner at my mother in law's house tomorrow. I am making key lime pie and Olive Garden's hot spinach dip. Both recipes should be making an appearance today or tomorrow! I also pre made cranberry orange scone dough, so we can have warm scones for breakfast. The rest of the week is going to take some thinking on!
