Apple Market Shopping Trip 4/7/11

Since I was sort of disappointed with the Homeland deals this week I decided to skip my weekly shopping trip there this time.....  What???  I know, you can't believe it, can you?  But, I couldn't skip my coupon therapy all together!  So, I decided to hit Apple Market after Walgreens today.  I did have to buy a few things I didn't have a coupon for (my husband called and wanted coke and ingredients for me to make homeade cookies), so that may reflect in my savings.  Here's what I was able to get:

1 Carton of eggs (no coupon, needed them for the cookies)
2 Garnier Fructis Conditioners--I found these on clearance, FREE after coupons
1 Coke (again, no coupon, just for my hubby's craving)
1 Sunny Delight--$.79
2 Malt-o-Meal Frosted Flakes--FREE after coupons
4 PictSweet Frozen Veggies--$.24 each after coupon
1 Kraft Shredded Cheese--FREE after coupon
3 Taco Bell Taco Seasonings--$.69 each (my coupon stated buy 3 taco bell seasonings get Kraft cheese FREE)
8 Buddig Lunch Meat--FREE after coupon
1 Best Choice Milk Chocolate Chips (you guessed it! no coupon! homemade cookie ingredients!)

Totals Before Coupons:  $26.80
Total After Coupons: $11.33
Savings Percentage: 68%

Just because of my curiosity I wanted to figure the savings percentage not counting the homemade cookie ingredients and the coke--Total spent would have been only $5.41, savings percentage would have been 74%!  That's quite a bit of difference!  Exactly the reason I don't like to buy things without a coupon!  Oh well.....

  1. no but i love this post, bc it is good to see that you sometimes have to buy things w/o a coupon! it makes people like me feel better! :)

  2. So true Alisha! Sometimes everyone has to buy without coupons & it makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one!
    Did you like the Best Choice choc chips? I bought them once & made cookies & they were HORRIBLE!!! Even my kids wouldn't eat them b/c of the choc chips.

  3. Oh no!! Becki! Don't tell me that! They're in the oven right now, so I guess time will tell! My hubby can be the judge of that..... ;)
