Weekend Shopping Trips

Friday I went to Smith's & Winco to do our shopping for next week. Because we did a menu plan for the whole month, I was able to get all of the ingredients that I will need for our meals this month. We will only need to go shopping for fresh produce, milk, and really good deals for the rest of the month.

Saturday I made a quick trip to the store to get a few more things at Smith's and Walgreens that they had been out of. It was a very successful trip. I spent $6.72 on all of this! I also earned a $3 RR to use next week.

I was finally able to get some free Nivea Lip Care at Walgreens! They have been out all week, so I was excited when they had some today. I was also able to get more cheap toilet paper. I got a coupon in the mail for a free tub of Cottonelle Wipes, and that paired with the RR deal made the Wipes and Toilet paper only $1.50+ tax after register rewards!

Total Paid: $6.23
Earned: $3 RR

If you eat cream cheese and you have not gone to Smith's this week, you should print the $5/5 Kraft coupon and get some free cream cheese! The sale last until next Tuesday. I would call your store ahead to see if they have any or when they will get more in. It is a great deal, so it goes fast!.

(10) Philadelphia Cream Cheese $0.99
(these are $.99 ea. after the $5.00 Mega Event Savings for buying 10 items)
Use $5.00/5 Kraft Printable Coupon

Pay $0.49 tax for 10!

Total Spent: $27.27

It has been so good to be able to stock up on items like Toilet paper and wipes!
