Super Savings Saturday - March 31, 2012

Another shopping trip without a camera.  Seriously, I do so need to get that battery replaced! 

Anyway, we still had a few extra dollars leftover from the previous weeks this month, so we "splurged" a little on some Easter Candy and store-bought jam.  Buddy has an aversion to my homemade (it's a texture thing for him), so it's a "treat" to have store-bought jam in the house for him!  We also stocked up on some chicken this week - I went over my "buy" price for chicken from $1 to $2 to have some boneless, skinless breasts in the house right now! We have about 4 whole chickens, a turkey and a jumbo pack of legs but no breasts, so we thought we'd take advantage of our "extra" money this week.

Here's what we bought, spending $50.87:

Store #1:
Smucker's Simply Fruit Spread: 2 @ $2.34 = $4.68
Starburst Jelly Beans: 2 @ 3/$7 = $4.66 - $1 = $3.66
Bagged Garden Salad: $0.99
0.93lbs Yellow Sweet Onion @ $0.99 = $0.92
2.43lbs Braeburn Apples @ $0.99 = $2.30
2.20lbs Navel Oranges @ $0.99 = $2.18
Cucumber $0.59

Total Store #1 including tax: $16.56 (Saved $1 according to receipt.)

Store #2:
Kellogg's Cereal 5 @ $1.88 = $9.40 - $2 - $2 = $5.40
Cadbury Dark Chocolate Eggs, Hershey Chocolate Eggs: 3 @ 2/$6 = $9 - $2 = $7
Hallmark Easter Cards: 3 @ $0.99 = $2.97 - $2 = $0.97
Gold n' Plumb Split Chicken Breasts 2 20oz packages @ $6.99 B1G1 = $6.99 - $1.50 = $5.49
1 Whole Chicken @ $0.88/lb = $4.21
1.94lbs Green Grapes @ $1.29/lb = $2.50
Grape Tomatoes 1 pt: $2
Store Brand Gallon Milk: $2.89

Total Store #2 including tax: $34.31 (Saved $36.78 according to receipt)

So I spent $50.87 and saved $37.78.
