Like everyone I love a good deal Puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day. On Friday I popped to our local Zehrs grocery store. I find grocery shopping a chore, as every week the prices just increase. I had a deal where if I spent $75 I got back 7,500 points which is worth $7.50. I thought I would take a look at the store and see if I could find some deals. I struck the mother load of deals in my humble opinion!!
I ended up spending $81.93, but after I cashed in $80 worth of points, I paid $1.93 out of pocket. There was a pile of meat reduced. Got a chicken pot pie 50% off and some English muffins and hot dog buns also 50% offI got 1,800 points when I spent a certain amount on margarine, so stocked up on Becel, which was on sale.
Eggs were on sale for $2.99 per dozen, best price I have seen in a while.
I like to have a couple of cans of tomato and mushroom soup in the pantry to add into recipes. Had no rice, so bought a package which will last us a few months.
I ended up cashing in 80k in points, but received 10,100 points from shopping today.
Everything I bought was things we needed.
I ended up with 5 meals of sausages, 2 meals worth of ground beef. One meal of chicken and two meals with the chicken pot pie.
Zehrs is an expensive store normally, but I did super good this shopping trip. We'll be eating the chicken pie over the weekend, with salad and potato salad that needs using up.
Do you enjoy grocery shopping?
