Pick N Save Double Days!! Did you go??

Did anyone go today?? I did. It's late and I am tired, so I am going to do a short report. :)
7 transactions. Saved 66%. I was shocked at how high prices are. I bought alot of treat things for upcoming events. Instead of showing each transaction I will just list. OOP was $83.95

2 loafs of bread
7 boxes of Noodles
4 boxes of Hot Choco
6 boxes of assorted cereals
1 gallon of milk
4 yogart cups
5 cans of Grilling baked beans
1 can of pringles
2 pouches of Brown Rice
2 boxes of Instant Rice
2 packs of Hot Dogs
3 packs of Danininos Yogarts
2 dozen eggs
10 pounds of chicken drums sticks
3 packs of Johnsville Brats
4 boxes of instant oatmeal
box of wheat thins
box of ritz munchables
1 box of toaster strudel
2 half gallons of OJ
2 boxes of Velvetta Cheese and Shells
2 cans of Campbells Chunky Soup
2 cans of Garden Broccoli Soup
6 bottles of snapple
1 bottle of apple juice
1 bottle of raspberry lemonade
2 cartons of Welch's Juice
2 packs of cheese slices
1 can of folgers coffee
1 can of maxwell house coffee
2 bottles of chocolate syrup
3 family size bags of veggies with cheese sauce
5 boxes of frozen microwave meals
2 candy bars
1 package of cotti salami
6 boxes of Bagel Bites
1 reusable coffee filter
2 bottles of Laundry Detergent
2 bottles of Dish Soap
1 8 pack of Toilet Paper
1 package of Dental floss

So, was that worth $83? I felt like I could have done better, but with 2 kids and being exhusted didn't help. I did save over $162.00.

I did have a good mail day. I got another $10.50 check from a survey company and I got some coupons. Also, a woman at work gave me a frozen lasagna, so that is a free dinner. :)

Good night..I am beat!

We have 4 stores in my area and two different sale rotations so sometimes I plan for a sale price and end up at the wrong store :o) Then I just go to the other one so it works out. Dragged my hubby and kids to one store run - ended up rescuing my husband from a pile of coupons, he was scratching his head so I just traded carts with him and finished his pile. Ended up doubling 120 coupons and using another 20 or so $2 ones. Got some cool stockpiles products and a bunch of stuff to give away. The last time I checked out, I actually ran into an assistant manager who didn't know it was double double day (at 7 p.m.) - he must have been working with his eyes shut cause the store was mobbed! I was able to leave a bunch of coupons on the shelves and gave some away to neighbors that were there too - I enjoy sharing coupons! A good coupon day. Time to rest!

I have been noticing that the coupon deals on food just are not as good as they used to be. Pick N Save seems to be raising it's prices & not having as many free ADC deals as they used to too. I am still going to shop there every week & I did get a number of things free this week. It just hasn't been as good as it used to be. Everywhere too, not just Pick N Save.

@ Jess, What was your OOP?

Penny I agree. Pick n Save prices have gone up, which is a bummer! I always thought as Pick n Save as one of the most family cost friendly stores, but it's getting most expensive.

I am going over to Woodman's for a trip, I have been impressed with their selection and prices.

I am still using Aldi's for some things.

Just have to keep watching prices and get the best deal we can.
