Pick and Save Shopping Trip
September 10, 2010Posted by on
Every time I shop at Pick and Save now, I am always amazed at how much cheaper I get groceries since couponing with the Double Daze. It has become my favorite grocery store – I get such great deals!
The really good deals were:
Free Milk (plus overage) -Milk was $1.98 w/ coupon and I had a ‘get one free’ milk coupon valued up to $3.25 – it rang up for the full amount so I had $1.27 overage
Free Eggs (plus overage) – same thing, with 20 cents overage
Uncle Ben’s Rice – $2.19 – $2 ($1 doubled coupon) = 19 cents!
Digorno Pizza – $2.20 – $2 ($1 doubled coupon) = 20 cents!
Ritz Pretzel – $2.75 – $2 ($1 doubled coupon) = 75 cents!
Now, I always wonder how to treat overage…do I take the total overage ($1.47) and split it across all items, or do I just ‘take it off’ certain items? (I know, I know, I overthink waaaay too much!)
Well, I decided to take it off the 3 items above and consider them free – and I will take the remaining 34 cents off something else!! Love getting free stuff and this makes me feel like I did REALLY well (5 free items)!!
The whole trip cost me $16.79 after using $15.51 in coupons; almost saved half the price of the groceries!
