Shopping Trip 1/15: 59% Savings at Meijer- .67 each Mott’s Applesauce, .66 each Toaster Strudel + More


Stopped into Meijer today to make sure I was able to grab some of the super cheap Mott’s Applesauce and picked up a few other great deals that are unadvertised! The bad thing about shopping with the kiddos and the hubby, they tend to trow in items that are not on my shopping list and of course are not on sale or have a coupon! But even with about $18 worth of non-sale and no coupon items, I still saved more than half and that is ok!!

You can check out my Meijer Ad Match-ups for 1/15-1/21 to see the whole list of sale items and I just added the unadvertised items I snagged to the bottom of the match-ups!

I was able to save $52 with coupons, mealbox printable coupons and m-perks! That is a 59% Savings- even with the added items the hubby and kiddos threw in!! I still have $33 to spend this week! What great deals have you found this week?

Shopping Trip: 62% Savings at Kroger


I really haven’t done a whole lot of big shopping trips lately. First off we have been so busy that I haven’t really been able to find the time but there also hasn’t been a whole lot of great deals! So while checking Kroger’s ad this week I realized there was several items that we really needed, so I made my list and headed out! There are items above that were not necessarily a great deal, but we were out of a few things and there are always the wanted items of the children!
Total before coupons and sales $96.41
Total after coupons and sales $36.05- 62% savings! I love using coupons!

You can check all the great sales going on at Kroger here!

Very Cheap Suave Shampoo-.50 a 32oz Bottle!!

I have to say that either I have slacked on finding shampoo deals lately or they have not been around! I was down to our last bottle of shampoo (although I did have quite a few Men’s Shampoo left) as of Saturday and quickly realized I may have to pay full price for it! YIKES!! Have you seen the prices of shampoo! So my mission this week was to find a great deal or at least a good one to get me through the next few weeks until one came along!

So while at Walgreens yesterday I was able to grab 2 of the Suave Professional 32oz bottles of Shampoo for just $1!!
