It snowed like heck on Saturday morning, which was a surprise, well at least to me. I thought we had missed winter, but I guess not!! Dh was a love and snow blowed the driveway for me when I went to town grocery shopping.
Here are a couple of photos of the snow, south of the property:
West of the property:
In the afternoon I went grocery shopping to Zehrs, as I needed to get gas for the car. I like to go to the Canadian Tire gas station as I get coupons from the back of the flyer for bonus Canadian Tire money. This week I spent $50 and got 80 cents back in Canadian Tire money, which puts my Canadian Tire money stash up to $13.05 to spend in the store.
This is what I bought at Zehrs.
I paid for that little lot, $66.51, and had $31.27 in various savings. Missing from that photo is a bag of milk that I bought on Thursday for $3.99 bringing this week's grocery shopping total to $70.50. So my monthly total is $209.03 and savings of $42.06.
The Greek Yogurt was free with a Free Product Coupon. The frozen yogurt was free, as it scanned in at wrong price, we have SCOP here in Ontario, not sure if its all over Canada? It was a tax free day at Zehrs, so they reimbursed me $3.85 in taxes charged on various items. Then I used a number of coupons.
There are no fresh fruit of veggies in this week's shopping, as I still have plenty I need to use up in the house. I will be buying some canned Evaporated Milk on Monday at Shopper's Drug Mart as it's on sale for 99 cents per can, limit 4. I make wibbly wobbly pudding with evaporated milk. Recipe is here, you can substitute a can of the milk in place of 2 cups of ice cream.
Also on Thursday, Foodland is having a one day sale on eggs, bananas and chicken burgers, nuggets and fingers, see here. With the $1 coupon I have, 3 dozen eggs will only cost me $3.98, which is a great deal. So all in all I should only spend around $10 on the evaporated milk, the eggs and bananas; which means I will be still on budget for the month.
