I am back on track with meal planning and so I needed to make a big trip to get some groceries! I went to three stores and completely blew my budget of $50 a week. But after you see what I got, you’ll understand that it won’t all be used this week. So I am justifying my purchases with this!

Lowe’s Foods

2 Kaiser Rolls 6 count $4.48 (should have been $2.99, but the girl put in the barcode for one package so it didn’t ring up half price like the other)

Lowe’s Foods Shopping Trip 4/13! April 14, 2010

I did two transactions here so that I could get my Fresh Rewards Cash back and use it for the rest of the stuff I was getting! The girl politely took her time explaining how I have 30 days to use it blah blah and I used it 30 seconds later. So much for the explanation!

First Transaction:

1 Clorox Bleach $1.69

1 All 2x Detergent $3.49

Buy 1 Clorox and 1 All and earn $2 in FRC

$2/1 coupon

Final Cost = $3.18 minus the $2 in FRC makes it $1.18 or just $.59 each

5 Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and Meatballs $1.00 each ($5.00)

Buy 5 Chef Boyardee and earn $1 in FRC

$1/4 coupon

Final Cost = $4.00 minus the $1 in FRC makes it $3 or just $.60 each

8 Totino’s Pizzas $1.25 each ($10.00)

Buy 8 Totino’s Pizzas and earn $2 in FRC

$1/5 coupon

$.60/3 coupon was doubled = $1.20

Final Cost = $7.80 minus the $2 in FRC makes it $5.80 or just $.73 each

Total Cost: $15.67

Savings: $11.95, plus $5 in Fresh Rewards Cash earned makes it $16.95! And then a $3 off my next purchase printed off because of the Totino’s. So $19.95!

Second Transaction:

2 Celentano Mini Cheese Ravioli $2.50 each ($5.00)

1.58 lbs. Hot House Tomatoes $1.56

1 Dozen Lowe’s Foods Large Eggs $1.69

Total: $8.35, but I used my $5 FRC so I only paid $3.35 out of pocket

Savings: $8.16
