This post will include a trip to Fred Meyer last Saturday night last week. Even with that, I would call this week a great week! Here we go...

Monday night I went to Albertson's and had a great transaction...even thought my cashier was less than friendly (I hate that!). I had the doubles from the paper and the doublers from the ad for a total of 6 doublers for this transaction.
1 can Taco Bell refried beans - $1.00
1 McCormick grinder - $2.00 (-$.75 off coupon doubled) = $.50
2 California Pizza Kitchen single serve pizzas - $5.00 (-2 $2.00 off coupons doubled) = $1.00
2 Edge Shave Gel - $3.00 (-2 $.75 off coupons doubled) = FREE
1 2.25# grapes - $2.23
1 pkg M&M's - $.69 (-FREE coupon) = FREE
There was also an automatic $3.00 off for purchasing $10.00 in certain products.
Net OOP: $2.72!
Finally I picked up a few deals at Fred Meyer.
3 pkgs butter - $5.00
2 FM hot dog buns - $.78 (these are $.39 each for the first two, so I plan on getting 2 every time I go until I have enough for all the hot dogs in my freezer!)
2 cans olives - $2.00
18 ct eggs - $1.99
1 pkg bacon - $2.49 (clearanced)
2 pkgs salad mix - $4.00

My total grocery expense for the year is $1,406.35. I have used just over 1/2 of my budget for the year, but we are not 1/2 way through the year. I will just try to slow it down as much as I can so that I can stay in line with my annual budget.
So, how did you do this week?
