My Grocery Store of Choice is

Today they had a great Trick or Treat Event and Halloween Costume contest, Macy won 3rd place for being a box of popcorn so we got a $10 gift card.

While I was getting formula a $10 off a $50 purchase coupon printed at the bottom of my receipt. If you aren't familiar with ShopRites Baby Bucks program this is how it works, when you spend $100 on baby items you get this awesome coupon ($10/$50). You can get a total of 13 of these, I am not sure if it is a yearly deal or during a certain time frame.

Tomorrow I am hoping to get $50 worth of items and get $20 off using the $10 gift card and the $10/$50.

These are the deals that look good to me although you may find others to your liking.

Gold Medal Flour $1.49
There was a $.50 off printable a week or so ago making this $.49 after the coupon is doubled

Carnation Evaporated milk $.99
$.50 off 2 in this weekends insert, once doubled $.49 each

Earn up to $10 in Free Holiday Groceries on your next shopping trip, Spend $20 Save $10, Spend $10 Save $5
Looks like a one time offer per card during the week of November 1-14, 2009, purchase participating KRAFT products using your club card, register will keep track of your spending, once savings is earned it will print at the bottom of your receipt.

Trying to get a stash of Extra Bucks

I haven't shopped at CVS in quite some time, but with the Holiday coming I want to put some gift baskets together so I thought I would start this weekend. Since sales switch over Saturday evening I went ahead and went after Trick or Treating.

Got Back
