Grocery Savings 10.23.09

Okay, so I went grocery shopping today, after doing my research on prices around town (via the internet) and printing off all my coupons. I had my list in hand, and this is how I did. (and I'm happy!)

At Kroger, I spent $46.09, and I got:

1 box Honey Bunches of Oats
1 Amy's Organic Pizza
2 1/2 gallon jugs orange juice
3 lbs chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
1 pkg. chicken leg quarters (5 lbs)
3 pkgs. shredded cheese
1 pkg. block cheese (8 oz)
1 pkg. (of 6) soybaby organic yogurt
1 bag corn chips
2 dozen eggs
1 box cake mix
1 bag chex mix
1 loaf whole grain bread
3 bags Nature Valley Nut clusters
3 cans corn
1 bbq sauce
1 container Betty Crocker Frosting
2 pkgs. cinnamon-raisin english muffins
2 pkgs. dole romaine salad
5 lbs. potatoes
16 oz. mushrooms
1 pkg. celery hearts
1 box shells and cheese deluxe dinner
1 tin black pepper
1 pkg. albacore tuna
2 pkgs. keebler cookies (choc. chip and rainbow chip)
5 lbs. ground beef
1 box Mothers Cereal

Then, I spent $31.92 at Wal-Mart and got:

2 packages Trident layers gum
1 box lean pockets
1 Gillete Fusion shave gel
1 loaf french bread
1 pkg. hamburger buns
1 pkg. fat free flour tortillas
1 pkg. frozen broccoli
1 box Honey Bunches of Oats w/ Pecans
1 box simply salted Orville Red. popcorn
2 lbs. carrots
10 lbs. chicken thighs
2 lbs. bananas
8 yogurts
1 pkg. halls cough drops
1 container kids crest toothpaste
Lea and Perrins thick worchestershire sauce
16 oz. tomato sauce
1 gal. 2 % milk
1 Febreeze noticeables starter kit

So, altogether, I saved over $50 at Kroger, between coupons and sales/clearances, and I saved $13 at WalMart with coupons. I spent $78.01...and saved a total of about $63, which comes out to about 55% savings. Included in the above lists are 23 pounds of meat, not including all the other stuff! Woohoo!!!! :) Thanks, Sarah and Mandy, for the inspiration to shop like I used to! :)

I can't see your text. It may just be my computer but the text color looks to light.

But that is alot of food.

OOPS! Never mind I see the Text Now!
Duh! I need to wait on the whole page to load. Sorry.

That was a great deal and I love great deals. My daughter loves to find the sliced apples on sale ;-)
