so here goes.....

I will only brag about part of my day because my walmart trip was horrible



1st transaction:

2 Chuck Steaks (1.62&1.54 almost expiring)

5 Packets of Starkist Tuna

2 Packs of Thin Spaghetti

1 Box of Hamburger Helper

1 Packet Cincinnati Chili Spice

11 Chef Boyardee Pastas

1 Parmesean Cheese

3 Grands Biscuits

6 Ragu Pasta Sauce

OOP 18.91

Saved 23.55


2nd Transaction

20 Ragu Pasta Sauce

OOP 13.80

Saved 18.00


Yes, that is right, I bought 26 Ragu Pasta Sauces, but we love pasta, and they were only .69 a piece

Good shopping, Liz. You sure won't run out of Ragu for awhile. I love it too. My mom would only buy Prego and I didn't like it.

I haven't had anything to brag about. I'm really trying this minimal shopping thing. I went a tad overboard on Friday but it's all good because the month doesn't start until tomorrow. ^_^

WOOHOO! Good one. :D I love Ragu, too... especially their robusto! line. YUM. I stock up when it's on sale, too. We have spaghetti at least once a week, and I also use it for making pizza and lasagna, so I like having lots on hand.

PS. I won't have a brag for at least a month now, unless I can get something for a buck or less at CVS and save 20. :lol: Which HAS been known to happen, so you never know......

It may be my jaded stockpiling brain, but 26 totally doesn't seem like a lot to me these days. 100 ... maybe ... buy 26 is like a standard number. :) Great shopping, Liz. I always end up paying $1 for Ragu. 69c is much better.

Yeah! Good shopping! Ok, my October started yesterday so here's some of my deals:

Walgreens - I didn't include these in my budget but they were a good deal:
Nature Made Prenatals were BOGO and I had 2 $1 coupons so I got 2 bottles for April for only $10.99, savings of $14.99

Meijer -
Caramel Apple Dip was BOGO and I had 2 50c coupons which were doubled so 2 for 99c, savings of $4.99
Pledge Duster Starter Kits were on sale for $3 and I had 8 $3q so they only cost tax!!, savings of just over $34
Friskies Cat food - Had a raincheck for 2/$7 on the 3.15lb bags, combined with BOGO and $1 coupons to get 6 bags for $1.25 each, savings of just over $14

Kroger -
Got in on the last day of last week's sale yesterday and got 2 more BOGO Lloyds BBQ with 2 $1 coupons making them $1.99 each, savings of $8

10 bags of snacksize candy (yes 10) - on sale for $2 each, used a $4/$20, 5 $1/2 manu, and $10 ECB paid $1OOP and got $10 ECB back, saved $29.
2 packs of 16ct AA Duracell and 4 Dawn - on sale for $21.94, used $4/$20, $3.50 in manu and $10 ECB, paid $4.92OOP and got $5 ECB back, saved $25

I got some other stuff too like bread, milk, lunchmeat, 5 12pks of Pepsis, etc. I'm currently running at 74% savings for October. Of course I've already spent $48 of my $150 budget so that's the not great news.

Awesome job mrshowdy!

We love Ragu! I would totally stock up if I could get them for 69 cents! Every once in a blue moon I can get them for 75 cents at Meijer, but usually it a buck apiece.

No really great sales to brag about. But that also means I haven't spent much.

I did see that RiteAid has a lot of cold/flu freebies this month, so I think I'm gonna have to transfer a prescription over there to get a giftcard to cover the up-front cost. I love me some freebies!

BoxerMom October 3rd, 2007 07:04 AM

Great shopping Liz! I love Ragu too!

dingledine October 3rd, 2007 10:18 AM

Looks great!

I haven't been grocery shopping for a little whil e, but I plan to go in the next day or so...

Woot woot!

CBMS October 3rd, 2007 11:41 AM

I made my two brag threads for the month. :lol:

I made my budget super low this month to start using some stockpile. I may do it again next month, but I'm not sure yet. ;)

mrshowdy October 3rd, 2007 11:43 AM

that would be a long time to go without shopping kim

CBMS October 3rd, 2007 11:46 AM

I'll still shop. Just not spend 125 bucks! :lol: Only a little bit. If I do it again next month, I'll probably make it half the norm--so around 60 bucks. That gives me a little bit more wiggle room. :lol:

mrshowdy October 3rd, 2007 11:48 AM


after today, i dont know if i ever want to shop again

CBMS October 3rd, 2007 12:00 PM
