Here is my grocery deal of the week: 11 boxes of name brand cereal for less than $9.00!!!
The Special Cereal was a Target deal: buy five boxes at $2.39 each and get a $5 gift card. I used 4 $1 off coupons from coupons.com and my total after coupons and gift card was $3.12! That’s about 62 cents a box.
The Fruit Loops, Pops, Rice Krispies, Apple Jacks, and Frosted Flakes were at our Food Lion grocery store for $1.99 a box, and I used 6 $1 off coupons from coupons.com, making them 99 cents a box. Not bad! We now have enough cereal to last us an eternity.
My grocery savings in coupons and sales for the month of April was $152.79, with my best shopping trip being a savings of 78%. I have a lot of snack foods, cereal, pasta, and side dishes. I get my meat on the clearance sale (when it is about to expire), and my bread at Big Lots for more than 50% off. It works out pretty good for us!
My goal for May is to spend $40 a week or less in groceries, and $40 total for the month in cleaning supplies, paper items, and toiletries – for a total of $200 in May. We’ll see how I do!
