In case you missed it, I officially announced my Thanksgiving Planner last week. It’s never too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinner; so if you’re cooking this year, you need this to keep you organized! Click here to check it out and use the code THANKS to get it for only $2.00!
I decided to shop at 2 stores this week: Meijer and Wal Mart. Meijer had some pretty good sales going on, but not enough to do all my shopping there. And since I knew I’d have Allison with me this time, I wanted to make things easy. So we hit up Meijer first, walked around, then drove straight to Wal Mart to pick up our groceries.
I did have a few unexpected purchases, but I planned them ahead of time- if that makes sense. We had extra money in the budget and then I got a $5.00 reward from Meijer, so I was able to play around a bit- got some free stuff and other things I don’t buy regularly. Here’s what I bought this week:
3 bags frozen broccoli, 32-oz: $1.69 each
Ground turkey: $1.99
Bigelow tea: $2.19
Candy corn: $2.30
Peanut butter: $2.39
Strawberries, 2-pound container: $2.99
King Arthur white whole wheat flour: $3.79. Used a $.75/1 coupon from the mail and got $.65 back from Ibotta.
Turkey bacon: $2.00
Onions, 3-pound bag: $1.00
4 cups Skyr: $1.00 each. Used a $2.00/4 coupon and received $3.00 back from Ibotta, making these a money-maker!
3 packages pads: $4.29 each. I had an mPerks coupon for 50% off an entire feminine item purchase PLUS a Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon, so I got all 3 for $4.29!
3 tubes toothpaste: $1.00 each
Total: $27.98. Used a $5.00 off reward I had, plus I received another $2.00 reward to use next time! Also received $3.65 back from Ibotta.
