Grocery Shopping at Meijer

Grocery Total: $77.57
Spent: $9.29 & Saved: $68.28
58 coupons spent (including doubled coupons)
22 FREE items: Green Giant Steamers (8), Velveeta cups (12), and (2) brown and serve sausage as my 11th items.

The Lysol and pasta were super inexpensive with coupons so I had to stock up! They weren't FREE, but close to it! I also decided to spend $8 in store rewards that I earned last week. Otherwise this shopping trip would have been $17-ish.

I picked up more Costco lettuce over the weekend to add our garden cucumbers and tomatoes too. Yum!

***UPDATE: OK, I left the store feeling like my bill was higher than it ought to have been. So I just decided to re-crunch the numbers: All of my Lysol products were FREE (I was thinking that I paid a little bit for each, but I actually received $.32 in overage) ... so there is another 8 FREE items. I also realized that neither of my 11th items were FREE and that one of my $2/4 Velveeta coupons didn't scan. My actual total is $5.29. I wish I would have peeked into this more before I left the store.

Hi Laura,

Did you break up your Green Giant Steamers into separate transactions so all the coupons would double? Or did you have enough unique coupons to keep them all in one transaction?

Laura Webber

I did 4 transactions at the U-Scan machines. My last two transactions were only for the Steamers.


Wow, that is SO much food for under $10!
