Scored at the local 50% off grocery sales

March 14th, 2008 at 06:51 pm

The sale started Tuesday and I wanted to get there earlier but we didn't make it until tonight so there's a lot of stuff that was gone. But here's what we got at the first store:

10 cans salmon for .64 each
2 boxes of Panburger Beef Partner (for those nights when I just can't handle much cooking!) for .49 each
3 cans mixed vegetables (we use them only for soup or chicken pot pie) for .25 each
1 bag of beef jerky (their brand is the best!) for $1.19
18 small pizzas for when the kids are around for .44 each
Bottom round steaks for 1.99 lb

We also got some sour cream and three 20 ounce drinks not on sale. The total at the first store was $35.27.

At the second store we got:

3 bags of blackeye peas for .39 each
1 bag of large limas for .64
1 bag of baby limas for .96
2 bags of navy beans for .46 each
1 bag of great northern beans for .99
4 bags of kidney beans for .49 each
1 bag of black beans for .49
2 jars of DH's instant coffee for 2.68 each
3 jars of my coffee for $2.89 each
3 chicken gravy mixes for .16 each
3 sloppy joe mixes for .16 each
9 cans of chopped chiles for .59 each
8 cans of mixed greens for .37 each
7 cans of chili (my favorite breakfast!) for .69 each
3 boxes of chopped frozen broccoli for .25 each
34 cans of stewed tomatoes (I love em!) for .41 each
1 roasted chicken, not on sale, for $4.99

We spent $60.18 at the second store. We spent a little over $95 total.

I think we did pretty well and we certainly won't go hungry or thirsty any time soon. Wink

    carol, it's so good to see a comment from you again! I emailed you a couple of times. Did you get the email?

    Baselle, I know it! Unfortunately, by the time we got to the stores the cheese, soft drinks, peanut butter, and the like were gone but we're happy with what we got. .64 for salmon? wow!

    I'm jealous of the salmon price and the beans prices. Care to reveal your store names?

  6. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Joan, it's a local chain. They have Brookshire's stores and their warehouse stores, Super 1. They've switched to a new store brand (Food Club) so all the old store brand (Hy Top) items were marked down 50%. What great deals they had!

  7. carol Says:

    denise, have not read your e-mails,im having trouble accessing them, waiting for my son to help me solve the problem,still love your site,go to it everyday.

  8. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Okay Carol, I wondered. I'd emailed you a couple of months ago but wondered if you ever got it. I'm flattered that you visit daily!!
