You can click below to see how the weekly shopping went for me.
Organic Milk $5.98
2lbs carrots- free with store coupon
cream cheese- free with store coupon
French Bread $1.88
Purple Cauliflower $2.00 (I thought my girls would like this)
Machego Cheese $5.99 (boo!)

Fresh Pork Chops $15.57 – used $5 off a $15 pork purchase coupon*
Organic Salad Mix $1.49
2 pints of tomatoes .99 each
*The coupon didn’t work at checkout and I had to get a refund at customer service.
I hopped over to Safeway just because I wanted to take advantage of that rebate offer for the free items. I normally wouldn’t have bought some of these items but since they were free after rebate I just couldn’t pass it up.
Fundamiddles Cupcakes $3.99- used $.50 coupon= $3.49
Ocean Spray Fruit Snacks $1.99- used $.50 coupon= $1.49
Cheerios Dulce con Leche $2.99
Multigrain Cheerios $2.99
Nature Valley Protein Bars $3.00- used $.50 coupon= $2.50
2 Lucerne Cheese $5.23 (these are $5.99 but I have a Just 4 U price of $5.23)
Totinos Pizza Stuffers $3.49- used $.50 coupon= $2.99
Yoplait Greek Parfaits $2.50
Yoplait Greek Yogurt $2.50
2 Farmland Bacon $5.49
Total $37.40 but I get $26.94 back in a rebate so the total is $10.46
And I wouldn’t have gone to Target except I was collecting prices for the blog so here are a few things I grabbed:
2 Welch’s Fruit Fizz $2.99- free with coupons
Up & Up mouthwash $2.29- used $1 coupon= $1.29
Organic Eggs $3.84
Ortega Taco Sauce $1.61
Ortega Seasoning $.62- used $1/2 coupon (from a magazine)
2 Schick Razors $9.49- used $5.50 in coupons and got back a $5 gift card= $2.98
Final Price: $9.34
So if you figure the rebate will go back into our bank account, the grand total was $52.33. That wasn’t quite enough for the week as I wasn’t able to get much produce. The organic produce is just so much more expensive at my normal grocery stores so I will have to swing back over to Sprouts to get mushrooms, celery, apples and tomatoes. I am guessing that will be about $8 or so.
The nice thing is we are REALLY stocked up on pork chops for a few months. Since the price was so good this week I got a bunch of packages and they all went into Ziploc bags and into the freezer.
If you want more recipe ideas, you can follow me on Pinterest. I seem to have a theme of cheese and sweets going right now but I am looking all the time for easy and healthy ideas.
