So, I did most shopping at Shop Rite these last 6 weeks. I made sure to only buy on sale/clearance/with coupons. I spent EXACTLY 400.00. The only non perishables I bought in those weeks were discounted sausage (all sorts), eggs (never more than .99 a dozen) yogurts (only on sale and with coupons) milk, lemonade (DH special treat), ricotta cheese and select produce (when Broccoli Rabe is .89 cents a pound I stock up!) All other items were canned/cleaning/paper good.
Here is the proof that I got my free turkey.
But we aren't done. DH wants a fresh turkey for Thursday. I have figured that with the Big Y coupon it will be cheaper than purchasing a fresh one at BJ's. I also plan on getting one more frozen turkey for .59 a pound at Stop N Shop.
