Grocery Shopping...Frugalista Style

Monday is typically my grocery shopping day.  This works out perfectly since the new coupons come out on Sundays which gives me a day to get my game plan together. 

This week I hit up Meijer and CVS.  I really wasn't in dire need of anything so I just stocked up on good deals!  I did get some chili and tomato sauce to use in a recipe for Beefy Mexicali from the blog from a GOODE friend. Check it out at http://goodenessgracious.blogspot.com/

Here is a run down of both stops...


Grand Total: $15.54
Total Saved: $31.96

Best Buys:
Lysol toilet bowl cleaner- 1/2 price at $1.19 minus $.50 coupon that doubled to $1.00 = $.19
Coffeemate coffee creamer- on sale for $.99 minus $.75 coupon = $.25
Snuggle Dryer Sheets- $3.48 minus $3.00 coupon = $.48
DanActive yogurt- marked down to $1.20 minus $1.00 coupon = $.20


Grand Total: $.47 + received $2.00 Extra Bucks for next purchase
Total Saved: $4.74

Best Buys:
Colgate Pro Clinical- $3.99 minus $1.00 coupon= $2.99
Palmolive Dish soup- $.88 minus $.75 coupon = $.13
I also used $2.99 worth of Extra Care Buck coupons from last weeks purchase.

Hope this inspires some of you to become frugalistas yourselves!


  1. Ok, I so desperately need to learn this CVS system.

    Hope you like the recipe :)

  2. I am in awe of your bargain-awesomeness, Frugalista!! :)

  3. Glad I looked at your post. I really need to add Meijer to my stops!

  4. Mondays are my shopping days too! It's one of my favorite parts of the week. Thank you Meijer for such pleasant experiences.
