Simplicity – Small & Cheap

Living simply & cheaply…wherever you are!

Glen’s Trip

I did pretty good at Glen’s today even though I didn’t plan on getting much.

I bought this all on sale, no coupons.

4 boxes of Mueller’s pasta – $1.69, on sale for $0.99 each

4 cans of Hunt’s Tomato Sauce – $1.79, on sale 4/$5

Brach’s Jelly Beans – $1.99 –> My insurance policy for the next pregnancy.  The diabetes test SUCKS!   I can eat 18 jelly beans and not have to mess with the stupid fizzy super-sweet pop.   Thus, the jelly beans :).

9 cans Dole Pineapple (various shapes) – $1.69, on sale for $0.89 each

6 cans Dole Mandarin Oranges – $1.59, on sale for $0.89 each, PLUS I got two $0.75 OYNO catalinas, making them $0.64 each!   I wish I had the Dole canned fruit coupons.   This could have been even sweeter!

6 cans corn – $0.84, on sale 2/$1

Total value – $45.40

Total sale price – $27.30

Savings – 40%

And this puts me under my goal of $75 a week on food.   First time in a long time (about a month) that I’ve been able to do that.  Yippee!
