As Canada does not have pennies in their currency we round up or down, so that's why when you add the four totals up it comes to $58.18, but I ended up paying $58.20.
So far this month I have spent $186.60, with only $3.25 in coupons used. I don't count price matching as then it gets too complicated and too much work for me!!
As you can see there are no cleaning, paper or personal hygiene items in this week's shop. I will probably pick up a couple of other items through the week, for example eggs, but otherwise that should be it.
I did discover a couple of things while out. As the price of beef is high I see they have brought out a ground beef/pork mixture now. Still pricey if you ask me. Some bags of milk come in 3 litre bags instead of the 4 litre; very sneaky!! I see big bars of cheese that used to be 500 grams is now down to 450 grams.
I was out an hour and a half in total. I did a round trip visiting all those stores. I could have tried price matching everything at Wal-Mart but I find they pull items off the shelves that are on sale at other stores at much cheaper prices.
I had a bunch of broccoli left over from last week, so I baked a broccoli and cheese quiche in the toaster oven. We had half of it with garden salad and french bread for supper:
I was talking to a friend and she told me about a yummy sounding broccoli and cauliflower salad that I may have to try.
Any good deals this week where you live?
Oh and I finally got around to cleaning out my coupon wallet, I really need to knuckle down using coupons.
