This Week's Groceries and Menu

Wow, nobody was running good sales on anything really this week. The only "highlight" savings-wise this week is that Kmart is doubling coupons up to $2 and I was able to get some awesome deals there.

Kroger:

(2) Kroger brand "Nacho" chips - $1.99 ea.
Kroger brand Corn Chips - $1.13
Gallon 1% milk - $1.99
Kroger Mustard - $1.19
2 pkgs. ground chuck - $7.53
Bananas ($.50/lb) - $.98
used no coupons
Total OOP: 17.22
Total Kroger Savings: $2.00
Saved 10%

WalMart:

Shortening - $3.68
2 OJ - $2.96 (they went up $.06 ea.!!)
2 Bright'n'Early - $1.36
Total OOP: $8.20

KMart:
(2) Vaseline Lotion, $2.99/ea. $.49/ea. after doubled coupons
(2) Kotex pantyliner, $1.29/ea. FREE after doubled coupons
(2) Tylanol ES Rapid Release, $4.49/ea. $.49/ea. after doubled coupons
Halls, $1.34 $.34 after doubled coupons
(2) Betty Crocker Choc. Chip Cookie Mix, $1.00/ea. $.20/ea. after doubled coupons
(4) Choc. Chips, $2.33/ea. $1.08/ea. after doubled coupons and $1 off if you buy 3 or more
Total OOP: $7.46
Total Savings: $23.18
Saved 76%

Whole trip OOP: $32.88
Total Savings: $25.18
Saved: 43%

I think that's pretty good considering that I didn't use any coupons at Kroger or WalMart, and that everything from Kmart is for stockpiling. I just couldn't pass up those deals!

The menu for this week:
Monday: Leftover Tuna Noodle Casserole, leftover green beans
Tuesday: Roast beef, baked potatoes, peas
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Liver 'n' Onions, mashed potatoes, corn
Friday: BBQ'd Pork, leftover peas and corn, leftover macaroni salad
Saturday: Pumpkin Crunch Bars to Christmas Party
Sunday: Leftovers?
