Weekly Spending Summary (6/10-6/16)

I know it’s been a bit quiet around here and I hope that I can get back into my usual posting starting today.  We left Friday evening to head six hours away to Virginia to attend the wedding of some friends of ours and then were gone the rest of the weekend.  I had hoped to get some posts written ahead of time so that there would still be some action on here over the weekend but I simply ran out of time!  At any rate, we had a good weekend seeing some family, lots of friends and enjoyed a beautiful wedding.  But it feels good to be home again too!

I did very little shopping last week, in fact, I only hit Giant.  I had thought I’d maybe go to CVS and Rite Aid but as the week went on I got busier and decided that the few deals I’d get there weren’t really worth taking the time to go.  And since I had no Extra Bucks or UPRewards expiring I didn’t have that push either.  But Giant more than made up for it!  I got coffee for $1.40/bag, free pasta, Pampers wipes for $0.99/package, Breyers ice cream for $1.00/box, and Magnum ice cream bars for $0.75/box.  It was a lot of fun!

    I was able to pick up Breyers Ice Cream at Kroger a couple weeks ago for $1 ea! So awesome! This week I’m able to get Turkey Hill for $2. It’s a little bit more but I love their ice cream! Especially the coffee flavor! I printed the Magnum coupons and am hoping Kroger will run a sale soon since there’s a catalina running right now on them.

    We LOVE Turkey Hill too…it’s my favorite by far. And the coffee is my absolute favorite as well! I’m pretty sure you know this but if you contact Turkey Hill they will happily, and I mean happily, send you coupons. It’s pretty awesome!

    I hope Kroger runs a great sale on the Magnum bars for you. This week after coupons they are actually a MONEYMAKER at Giant! I couldn’t believe my eyes…but I’m not going to complain obviously! :)

    So excited!!! Next week at Meijer I can get Magnum bars for $.63 a box!!! Can’t wait!

    And yeah that’s another reason I like Turkey Hill because they are so generous with coupons.
