Meijer 8/17

So we had another good trip to Meijer today. I spent $59.43 but we won’t have to worry about dog food for quite some time, I might even go back for more later since I now have more coupons; $.30 a pound is a good deal. I don’t know if I can pass it up. We ended up saving a total of $92.23 that’s a savings of 61% I even amazed Matt as he watched the total drop. To make things even better I plan to send in the Pop Tarts and Keebler cookies for the $10 Kellogg’s rebate. That makes this trip look a little more like this:
Total Spent: $49.43
Merchandise Received: $151.66
Savings: 67% savings!

I also used
$5 on shopping order (From Colgate deal earlier)
$3.10 in pop bottle returns.

I’ve really been trying to unit price shop on certain items, dog/cat food and liter. At first I thought it was too time consuming but since I started my price book it’s been easy to keep track of what everything sells at. Knowing what each pound cost helps me to determine when we should stock up on an item, especially those that will be used and don’t expire (at least for a while). We’ve also been looking at the Breeze system for quite some time now so of course we jumped on it at 25% off and a $10 coupon!
