My plan was to stop at Shoppers to pick up some double deal newspapers. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any. I then picked up an extra Washington Post for $1.50. I was hoping they would be on discount but apparently they don’t discount them anymore.
Since I was there and I had my $15 worth of catalina coupons from my previous trip with me and I thought I would get some basics for Thanksgiving coming up. We seem to have plenty of food for the next week or so. See my post about my husband’s Aldi trip HERE.
I took the opportunity to look for some good deals without using coupons! Then I made the decision to spend $15 and get Mr. Tom Turkey too. Shoppers Marvel Turkeys are $.38 lb which is the cheapest around as long as you spend $15.
This is what I found:
1 – Richfood Navy Dried Beans $1.00
1 – Richfood Blackeye Peas $1.00
1 – Richfood Pinto Beans $1.00 (Thought I could make some Mexican Burritos this week. I can use these and some other goodies I have in my pantry.)
1 – Banderita Tortillas 10 pk $2.49 (Perfect for Burritos)
1 – Goya Barley $1.09
9 – Hodgson Mill Fast Rise yeast 8.75 g a packet (more than other brands) $.29 each (This is a great deal! Since I love to make bread and I recently bought some extra yeast this was a great price. Plus, it has a date of later in 2011.)
1 – Frozen Marvel Tom Turkey 17.12 lbs $.38 lb = $6.50!
Yellow Onions 3 lb bag $2.49
White Potatoes Green Giant 5 lb bag $2.99
Russet Potatoes Green Giant 5 lb $2.99 (I know potatoes will go on sale again for Thanksgiving but I wanted to reach the $15 mark and I know that we would love to have home fries this week!)
Shredded Cheese 2 cups $2.00 (Perfect for the Burritos)
Sunday Paper $1.50
After -$15 catalina coupons and -$.20 reusable bags
Total = $14.46
