Last Nights Dillons Trip

I went to Dillons last night to get a few more things before they went off sale. They were completely out of half gallons of milk and I didn't even think to ask for a rain check. Luckily when I bought milk on Saturday I bought enough to last through next week! So I won't be too sad about it!

Here is what I got:

1 Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo - FREE w/ coupon from a facebook promo
1 Crest Toothpaste - FREE w/ $.75 coupon
1 Ivory Body wash - FREE w/ $.50 coupon
1 Ibuprofin - $1
4 Tony's Pizzas - $.50 each after 2 $.50/2 coupons
6 packs of Goldfish - $.43 each after coupons
1 pack of Tortillas - $1.50
1 bag of 'fritos' - $1.55
1 package of Lofthouse no bake cookies - $1.50 after coupon
9 Zone Perfect bars - $.22 each after coupons
3 cans of Refried Beans - $.66 each after coupon
1 roll of tape - $.69

I spent $21.11 and saved $36.99 (66%)

Dillons Deals 5/4 - 5/10

Here are the best deals I see at Dillons this week. If there is a particular coupon you need you can usually search for them on Ebay or through a Coupon Clipping service like The Coupon Carryout. I personally use My Coupon Hunter - you need to pay a subscription fee there though - it is very worth it but if you just want to buy a few coupons occasionally then a non-subscription site would be a good place to start!

Remember to load e-coupons at Cellfire, Shortcuts and These cannot be stacked with paper coupons on a single item!

Kroger Boneless Skinless Frozen Chicken Breasts or Tenderloins - $1.66/lb - $4.98 for a 3 lb bag. This is my stock up price!! I will be buying a few bags

My Weekend Shopping Trips!

I spent Saturday shopping and saved a lot!

We started out by going to Aldi's. I finally convinced my husband to go there and we got a lot of produce for a great price! Then we went to Dillons to do our weekly shopping, Target for diapers and then that afternoon we went to the Mall and got great deals at Aerie, Victoria's Secret and JCPenny. Here are the details:

Package of English Muffins: $.99
7.5 lbs of bananas: $3.32
3 bags of baby carrots: $.99 each
Head of lettuce: $1.29
4 lbs of Strawberries: $.99 each lb
Cantaloupe: $1.29
Total Spent: $14.83
*And I will be freezing most of the strawberries and bananas before they go bad to use for smoothies!

I bought 50 items and spent $64.97 and saved $56.12 (48% - I usually save between 50 and 80% but my items like chicken (6.99), vitamins (7.24), TP and eggs I didn't have coupons for. Still happy with my trip!
Included in this trip I got 10 packages of hummus - we love hummus! On sale for $1 each.
4 packs of goldfish at $1 each
3 packs of american cheese slices at $1.12 ea after qs
2 40oz bottles of Heinz Ketchup priced at $1.99 - FREE after $2 coupons printed from their facebook page (no longer available)
2 Purex detergents at $1.50 each after qs
6 half gallons of milk at $1 each

I got a swimsuit on sale for $19.98 (reg $40)
and I bought 3 packages of diapers for $19 after my coupons plus I got a $5 giftcard back for buying 3 packs.

Here is a pic of my trip at these 3 stores:

I spent $90.77 on everything pictured above and the chicken, vitamins and diapers alone are valued at $44. Considering so much of the food is fresh, non processed food I'm very happy with this trip! My husband has just started P90X so this is a good excuse to start eating healthier too! lol

And for the mall - sorry no pics lol BUT we went to VS first. I have been either pregnant or nursing for the last 4.5 years and it's been forever since I've bought a good bra so since I had stopped nursing my 15 month old this last week I knew it was finally time for a good one! So I had my free panty coupon and $10/bra coupon and spent a very worthy $40 there. Then I had a $10/$10 Aerie coupon so got 4 panties there and spent $1.93. Then Ella needed a swimsuit too so went to JCP and had a $10/$10 coupon and suits were on sale for $11.99. I spent $2.14 on it, she loves it - my best deal of the weekend I think!
