Fred Meyer Trip - Some Awesome Deals!

I headed off to Fred Meyer today because it was the first day I could use this coupon book. I was one of the first 2,000 shoppers, so I did get the FREE reusable grocery bag, which also included a magnetic shopping list. Fun! They also were handing out additional inserts with even more coupons, so I was happy. I had both kids with me, so at times it was frustrating, but I made it through with plenty of great deals. In fact, I got ALL this stuff for $27.32!!!

Here is the breakdown:

9 cans of FM vegetables - $4.50

1 5# bag of FM sugar - $2.89

2 Cottonelle TP - $1.98

2 FM eggs - $3.70

2 Tums - $7.38

1 reduced family pack of Sirloin Steak - $4.17

1 FM butter - $2.49

8.42 pounds of bananas - $2.11 (these were on sale for $.25/pound! Nothing is wrong with them!)

2 Daisy Sour Cream $3.00

1 bag doritos - $2.75

2 FM whipped topping - $1.18 (these were $.59 for your first 2, additional at $.79)

1 10# bag of potatoes - $2.98

Total before coupons: $40.79

I was super excited about this trip, especially the bananas! My plan is to cut some of them in pieces and freeze them for smoothies or banana bread or muffins of the future. I got the idea from Money Saving Mom here. For the potatoes (because I already had 10 pounds) I am going to make several dishes of Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes to freeze for later.
