Groceries: May 24

I was really looking forward to grocery shopping today! We were super behind in couponing since we were busy packing before the trip, so we had almost a month's worth of coupons to put into our "database" and organize into folders (sad, right?). We finished it up last night during the Lost finale and were ready to hit Publix today. I had a feeling it was going to be a good week and I was right on - it was probably our best week yet.

The outcome? We spent $36.15 and saved $60.66!

Here's the breakdown:

4 Idahoan Mashed Potatoes (BOGO and $0.75 off)
2 Knorr Rice mixes (BOGO and $0.55 off)
2 boxes of Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn (BOGO and $0.40 off)
2 Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers - Broccoli & Sugar Snap Peas (BOGO and $0.50 off)
2 Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas (BOGO and $1 off)
2 Fresh Express Salad Blends (BOGO)
1 box of Contact (I think it's cold/sinus medicine but it was $1.89 [originally $6.39] so I'll figure something out)
2 cans of Bush's black beans ($0.73 each)
1 box of GoGurt! (for $0.40!)
2 Ken's salad dressings (BOGO and $1 off)
2 Larabars ($1.25 for both)
1 bottle of Herbal Essences shampoo (for $1.39, originally $3.49)
1 pack of chicken sausage ($2.99, originally $5.99)
1 carton of Almond Breeze milk ($1.50, originally $3.29)
1 bottle Aussie Shampoo ($2.39)
1 bottle Aussie leave-in conditioner ($0.39!)
1 bottle Ecotrin (I think it's Asprin? $1.69. Originally $6.19)
1 box Purevia ($1.24, originally $3.69)
1 bottle Clearasil face pads (20% off and a $2 coupon made it $1.83)
1 jar Newman's Own pasta sauce ($1)
1 6-pack SlimFast (YUM! - $2.74)

It's just incredible to me that we got almost $100 worth of food for $36. I also love it because it means that we can give extra to the food bank and help out someone else. We're definitely starting to see our "stockpile" though, especially in the bathroom. We have enough shampoo and deodorant to last a lifetime and medicine for just about any illness either of us would ever get.
