Price Chopper/ Save a Lot/ Sam's Club/ Wegmans/ Dollar Stores/

Bear with me for a bit. I'm new at this and making things up as I go along! LOL I'll be listing each store with only the food products I buy there. I won't be mentioning personal, pet, paper products and such. I'll give the total next to each store name. I hope I don't mess up on the math too bad *blush*

You can use the links at the top of this post to bring you to a specific store. My menu list will be posted in a separate entry. I'll be denoting sales and when I use coupons. Here is how I'll denote them...

! = sale
* = buy one get one free
** = buy one get two free
c = used a coupon

The meat in a BOGOF sale lists the actual price per pound I pay, not the original price.
Sizes listed are of a single unit, not total pkgs bought

*********Mistake mentioned above. I grabbed 2 bags of malt o meal cereal that I thought were 2.49ea. I intended to buy them with a $1/2pkgs coupon. At the register it rang up $4.19ea. I was too busy to notice the difference while she was ringing it up. I'll never take it back so the kids will enjoy some expensive cereal this week and I'll be more careful next time.

I did this different then I normally do. I bought THEN made a menu. I've found I spend more when I shop this way. I also ran into a lot of reduced meat so made a few extra purchases that I wasn't planning. This payday is one of my lighter debt ones and Tom has overtime....so things didn't have to be so tightly planned.

I don't have enough fruit for my liking. I'm hoping to stop by an apple farm and a local farm stand to get some more fruit and veggies. (ran out of time yesterday) I'll need more bread and milk.

This entry is so long that I'll be posting my menu list in another post.
