Frugal Finds and Eats!

This week has been a total turn around compared to my many less than frugal slip-ups last week!

Hubby and I scored some sweet deals this week grocery shopping. We are pretty stocked on meal stuff but just wanted to grab some deals for lunch and snack stuff. Here is what we snagged:

3 bags Freshlike Broccoli-------------- 2 cans Pilsbury Biscuits

2 Boxes Saltines (these were 1/2 price and I could use the $1 off 2 Keebler Cracker Q)

Milk ---------------------------------2 boxes Whole Grain Poptarts

Kraft 2% Singles --------------------2 Hunts Pudding Snack Packs

Bertolli Dinner (Hubby found this: They were marked down from $5.99 to $4.89 plus I had a $1.75 off Q)

3 cans Healthy Choice Soup---------6 Yoplait Yogurts

2 Boxes Superfillz Pretzels ---------Red Baron Panini

Eggo Waffles

Total Cost (after sales and Coupons): $25.51! Total Savings: $26.58!!!

Wow did Walgreens ever suprise me this week! Here is what I snagged:

2 boxes of Celestial Seasonings Decaf Green Tea ------2 Packs Wrigley Gum

3 packs of Schick Quatrro Razors ---------------------Almay Mascara

Almay Cover Up

I did use a couple RRs but my total Out of Pocket was: $2.53, Total savings: $47.76!!! Not including the $6.99 rebate for the mascara, cuz that makes it a +$4.46 money maker!

To continue the amazing streak, Rite Aid had everything I wanted in stock!!

I grabbed 10 SoyJoy Bars and the double pack of GUM toothbrushes. I had 3 BOGOF SoyJoy Coupons so I paid $5.61 for everything and will get back $6.99, yay! I made $1.38!!!

Eats!

Last night Hubby and I had a movie night! We got our favorite BC Pizza for a deal! Hubby salvaged 10 boxes from his work trash so we got a $2 medium and on Tuesday night its 1/2 price Large and Extra Large so we got a medium Bacon and Onion and a large Taco Pizza for $9!!

Monday nights in November Red Mesa Grill is offering BOGOF Dinners so next Monday we are heading there to celebrate our 6 month anniversary!

The best part is that Hubby is really getting involved in this money saving. When we were first married he scoffed at the effort I put forth but now he is the one spotting deals and salvaging pizza boxes from the trash!

Ohhhh! I didn't find the toothbrushed at mine. Maybe next time.

Love the SoyJoys though!
