I took two trips to Fred Meyer this week. One trip I bought 6 1/2 gallons of skim milk. They were on sale for $1.00 each with the in ad coupon. I don't have a picture.
Net OOP: $6.36
The second trip was the biggie.
2 loaves of bread - $3.34
2 FM cottage cheese - $2.50
2 FM sour cream - $1.98
1 FM plain yogurt - $1.25
10 assorted Yoplait yogurt - $5.00
2 FM orange juice - $2.00 (w/in ad coupon)
2 FM chocolate milk - $2.00 (w/in ad coupon)
1 8-pack Yoplait yogurt - $2.19 (this was a mark down because it was getting close to the date)
5.13 lbs of bananas - $1.71 (they were 3 lbs for $1.00!)
2 cans FM pears - $1.98
1 bag of grapes - $2.68
2 big pears - $1.24
1 cantaloupe - $4.28!!! (I didn't see that coming - it also wasn't very good :'()
2 FM pepperoni - $5.00
1 Kroger cheese - $4.79
1 pack Jimmy Dean turkey sausage patties - $1.99 (these were marked down)
2 packages Oscar Meyer hot dogs - $1.98 (also marked down)
1 package Ham - $.79 (also a mark down)
Net OOP: $49.51 (yes! a whole week's budget! ugh!)
I also went to Walgreen's for the Ragu deal:
7 jars of Ragu spaghetti sauce - $13.93 (-2 $.50 off 2 Ragu coupon, and 3 $.25 off 1 Ragu coupon) - $12.18
1 jar Hellman's Mayonaise - $3.99 (-$.60 off Hellman's coupon)Net OOP: $16.65 + I received a $10.00 Register Reward
Now, instead of being $4.06 over budget, I am now $70.22 over budget! Yikes. Was it worth it? Not really. Especially not that cantaloupe!
Here is the thing, though. I have a huge stockpile. I have tons of fresh stuff. I have a lot of milk. My plan is to cut way back the next few weeks so I can catch up with this. After all, I still have the $2600.00 budget for the year. I want to make sure I don't go over that.
