I am so excited every time I go grocery shopping, because I can’t wait to look at the bottom of my receipt and see how much I saved! Pictured above is one of my weekly Saturday Vons grocery shopping trips. I saved 64% on that shopping trip! I spent $34.71 and saved $60.90! I write a lot about how to save money at the grocery store, so I wanted to post one of my grocery shopping trips to show you I really do know what I’m talking about.
Here’s what I bought on my grocery shopping trip:
4 Chex Mix $0.99 each = $3.96, Normal price: $16.56, Savings: $12.60
3 General Mills Cereal $1.49 each – $1.00 coupon = $3.47, Normal price: $14.97, Savings: $11.50
8 Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream Soups $0.99 each – $2.05 coupons = $5.87, Normal price: $17.52, Savings: $11.65
2 Dryers low fat ice cream/yogurt $2.88 each = $5.76, Normal price: $11.98, Savings: $6.22
1 Coffee Mate Creamer $1.77, Normal price: $4.99, Savings: $3.22
4 Skinny Cow Ice Cream Novelties $3.99 each = $15.96, Normal price: $27.96, Savings: $12.00
Bananas $0.39/pound = $0.92, Normal price: $1.63, Savings: $0.71
All of the items I purchased were on sale, and I even had coupons for some of them. It always amazes me how much things cost at normal price and how willing people are to buy things at that high price! Vons does have a club card, but you don’t have to carry it with you to take advantage of the deals, you can just enter your phone number on the checkout keypad. I usually go on the Vons website a couple of days before I go shopping and select any deals I want to take advantage of. Then, when I checkout, they’re automatically there. It’s so fun to watch the price of the receipt keep going down while all of the savings are taken off! The cashiers are often impressed with the big amount of savings I get too!
So, if you want to learn to shop like that too, just read any of the posts in my Grocery Shopping Savings & Tips section of my blog, and you’ll find lots of ideas on how to save money at the grocery store.
