We are starting a new series this summer called "Helping Others". While we help all of you every day, I want to get a little more one on one with some of you that aren't able to come to my classes because of whatever reasons. Or maybe you have been to my classes and just need a little more assistance. Well, here it is!
I visited Jessica & Scott last night to help them get started on a stricter grocery budget for this summer. Jessica and Scott are a family of 4 - which includes beautiful twin daughters. :)
Check out this video:
So, Jessica and I shopped last night at Price Chopper utilizing their awesome sales on chicken and condiments. And, we also took advantage of the P&G catalina offers that I listed in this week's Price Chopper match-up. And of course, we also used this week's tripler coupons! YES! A great week for Price Chopper shopping.
So, in the video I said we would be using the catalinas to pay for the meat, but instead what we did was use the triplers and one of the catalinas to get one 20 Roll of Charmin Basic Bath Tissue for FREE. Yep - FREE!
We did 2 transactions total - We had a $5/$70 Purchase coupon from last week's shopping that we wanted to use and generally you can't use one of those with a Catalina Coupon. So, we got all of our meats, milk, bread ( on sale 2 loaves for $2!), Pizza Dough (BOGO FREE!) veggies, fruit, BBQ Sauce (KC Masterpiece 17oz bottles for $0.59 baby -with sale and coupon!) Plastic Hefty cups and P&G Beauty Items ( Herbal Essence - 2/$2 with tripler coupon, Venus Disposable Razors for $4 with coupon and 2 Bottles of Pantene for $3.33 with BOGO Free Coupon). We paid for that transaction which was $83.
We had mustard on our list as well, but they were sold out. Instead of getting a rain check Jessica opted to try Tops since they are closer to her and actually have a better price on the French's mustard this week ( 2/$3 instead of $2 - so with coupon only $1 for a 20oz size)
Next we bought 3 P&G items - (2) packages of 8-Roll Bounty paper towels and (1) package of Charmin basic bath tissue 20 rolls. All 3 items were on sale for $9.99 ( regular $11.49). The transaction above gave us a $5 catalina purchase ( a $5 coupon that can be used on any $5 or more purchase). We also saved 2 of our triplers and used them on this transaction. ( Remember, this week's triplers have a $15 minimum purchase AND a 3/per day limit per family)
So, the Big packs of Paper Towels and Bath Tissue were $20 total, including tax. Not too bad - that will last them a couple of months! Plus, this purchase gave Jessica another $5 catalina to use later this week on meat, pantry items or more milk and bread.
We got enough meat to last them for a week or so, along with the pizza dough and other staples they currently have in their home. The plastic cups will be used for entertaining this summer.
