Grocery Shopping at Meijer

Grocery Total: $71.25
Spent: $8.18 & Saved: $63.07
47 coupons spent
37 FREE items

(FREE items include the 1.25 lb of Jennie O deli turkey, 24 Ortega packets, 6 Betty Crocker frostings and 6 Betty Crocker Warm Delights.)

*Beware: some of my Betty Crocker Warm Delight coupons didn't automatically double, watch at the register!

*I had 12 Ortega coupons (I lucked out a few weeks ago and received an extra 6 copies of that particular insert! Woo Hoo!) so I purchase 24 packets since I would make $.12 in coupon overage when I stacked the manufacturer coupons and the Meijer mealbox coupons... giving me almost $3 of FREE money to spend on the other items in my cart!

*I'm excited to invent a summer squash soup recipe with all of the discount squash I was able to pick up at $.29/lb. I'll keep you posted (if it is yummy!).

Today was a TWO cart day!

Hey Laura - how did you get the deli turkey free? Thanks!

Laura Webber

I just posted the scoop for you!!!


wow I wish our stores marked down produce like that! awesome score. you can even just slice the squash and stick it in the freezer for cooking later.

Laura Webber

I have... wink!

Bummed I didn't clip the frosting coupons (I usually make my own frosting). Free tubs of frosting would be awesome for cookie decorating at school parties. I'll clip it next time for sure.

I make my own too, but these are great for donating!
