My Grocery Cart Week of Feb. 6-12, 2011

Last week's grocery amount is more than normal.  My sister and I are getting geared up again for freezer cooking this week.  Look for a post to see what we have made.

Kmart Finds

used $1/1 coupon final price $2.99
4 Orbit Gum $.33
 Orbit gum was a clearance item at the counter.  I'm not sure of the regular price, probably around $1 or more so I will use  $.67 each  when calculating my savings.  The receipt didn't show it.
Total spent $4.31
Total Saved $4.68
Total Coupon Savings $2

Total Spent for the week-$145.66
Total Saved for the week-$42.98
Total Saved using coupons-$16.20

I did do some calculating  to see what my savings would be on the discount groceries.  I figured sale prices (I didn't figure anything for the oranges) and my total savings would have been around $49 for the discount items.  That would have brought my grand total savings to $98.  I really think it pays to buy discount when you can.  The key is to know your prices and watch expiration dates.  Just because it is at a discount store does not mean it is a good deal.

What do you think of discount grocery stores?  Do  you buy discount groceries?
