I made today our shopping day. Tomorrow is cleaning day, but we already did a lot of that.
We went to Safeways and the dollar store. ( next to each other ) and Winco.
Dollar store netted a jar of pizza sauce. The same brand as the other stores, but a lot less money .
I freeze it in ice cube trays and then put the cubes in a zip lock. About three pizzas from a dollar jar.
Savings about 33 percent.
linguine for .75 ( 1.29)
Fettuccine for .75 (1.29)
2 cake mixes 1.00 ea ( 4.38)
4 -8 ounce pkg. cheese .98 ( 2/7 at FM)
2 butter 1.99 ( 3.69 elsewhere)
1 strawberries 2.99
Apples .99 ( 1.99)
Savings 48 percent.
2 lbs frozen peas 1.88
2 cake mixes .88
PRego pasta sauce 1.57 less coupon. 1.07
Large eggs .90
Eggs or cheese were basically a buck at Safeways. I knew that I probably could get eggs at Winco for around that (.90) so I got all cheese. Cheese is 2/7 at Freddies and eggs were .90 at Winco.
Knowing prices and adjusting a shopping trip accordingly can save a lot of money. My target price for frozen veggies is a dollar a pound. This was under.
I spent about thirty dollars total.
