You might have noticed that I didn’t post my drugstore finds yesterday. Yeah, well there are two reasons for that. First of all, I pretty much just picked up super cheap Easter candy at CVS which I can’t post since one of my kids actually reads my blog.
Sorry to burst your bubble Aidan, but yes. I’m the Easter Bunny.
The other reason is because Shannon got much worse before she got better this weekend. The poor thing had such a high fever that she developed a terrible ulcer on the inside of her mouth. It just sucked the energy out of her. Really, it broke my heart.
She is much better now, but it was rough going over here for awhile. Therefore, I pretty much just concentrated on the food deals this week. With Easter rapidly approaching, I need to focus on getting what I need for the big meal.
This week, I was very lucky to score .50 a jar Vlasic pickles, $1 a box Cheezits, $1.32 bars of Cracker Barrel cheese (Shan’s favorite), and .80 bags of Nestle chocolate morsels (sweet!)
I also grabbed $1.49/lb spiral ham that netted me some decent gas points. And I’m thinking I’ll need all of the gas points I can get in the coming months. Things are getting plum crazy at the pump.
For the most part, I stuck to my shopping list. However, I was swayed to try Pom Wonderful thanks to the $1/1 blinkie. They are on sale this week for $2.50. So, only $1.50 after coupon.
Which is still pretty pricey for juice in my opinion, but Michael has been nagging me to pick this up because he had it a friend’s house and loved it. At $4.29 a bottle, he better not get too addicted to it. It won’t be making its way into my fridge at $4.29 a bottle.
I didn’t see too much by the way of new blinkies or tear pads, but I did find this new booklet by Kraft.
There are some nice coupons in it, including .55/1 Nilla wafers, .40/2 Philadelphia, and .55/3 Jello. All items that many of us use on a daily basis, so a very good find!
$53.04 spent (dang ham and produce) and $102.89 saved. Not too shabby considering the lack of good food deals lately. Now more than ever I’m appreciating a good sale since they are so few and far between lately.
How about you? What are you excited about this week? Are you finding good deals on food for your stockpile or is it slim pickin’s?
