Grocery Game Deals

The last few weeks I've taken photos of all the groceries I bought and shared how much I've spent. This week I thought instead that I would share some of the deals that I got so you can kind of see how it works in case you haven't tried it out for yourself (or wish to try it for yourself without the Grocery Game).

These are some deals I got last week:

Ziploc Sandwich Bags 100 count: Regular Price: $3.39
On sale buy one get one free or 50% off each one: $1.69
Coupon doubled: $.55 doubled to $1.10
My final price: $0.59

Quaker Rice Cake Snacks (girls love 'em): Regular Price: $2.29
On sale for 3 for $5.00 or $1.66 each
Coupon: $1.00 each
My final price: $0.66 (because I have so many papers I had 4 coupons and was able to stock up on this snack that the girls seem to love - they ate the cheddar flavor in one sitting - imagine if I paid full price!!)

And some sales from this week:

Frank's Hot Sauce: Regular Price: $1.29 each
Sale Price: 2/$1.00 or $0.50 each
Coupoon I had $0.50 off one
It gets better - HT doubles coupons so they actually paid me $0.50 for each bottle I bought - I "bought" 3 so I got another $1.50 off my order. I would also have gotten my Worchestire sauce free but they were out so I got a raincheck. It was on sale for $1.00 a bottle and I have 3 $0.50 coupons which double to $1.00 each - I only have to pay tax!

GrabnGo CornPop/Frosted Flakes: Regular Price: $3.75/ea or $7.50 for 2
Sale price: 4/$5.00 or $1.25 each
Coupon: $1.50 off 2
Final Price: $1.00 total or $0.50 each

Chex Snack Mix: Regular Price: $2.89
Sale price: Buy one get one free or 50% off each: $1.45
Coupon: $0.50 off which double to $1.00 off
Final price: $0.45 each (I had 2 coupons)

ACT Mouthwash: Regular Price: $6.99
Sale price: $4.99
Coupon: $2.00 off
Final price: $2.99

Ken's Marinade: Regular Price: $2.79 each
Sale price: Buy one get one free or 50% off each: $1.40
Coupon: $0.50 off which doubles to $1.00 off each
Final price: $0.40 each (I had 2 coupons)

Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers Vegetables: Regular price: $2.50 each
Sale price: 2/$4.00
Coupon: $0.50 off each which doubles to $1.00 off each
Final price: $1.00 each (I had 2 coupons)

So you can see how it works. The Grocery Game does the work for you but given enough time you can do it for yourself - matching coupons and sales and following trends to stock up.

I have to go back for a few things and I need to run to Wegman's for milk (I have coupons for free stuff there if I spend $10 and their milk is cheaper) but tonight at HT I spent: $58.59

But saved: $101.38

I must preface this by saying that I have been receiving $20 off $50 coupons to shop there and that obviously helps a lot but still that's only a portion of my $100 savings. I did have one cashier say that my $20 isn't included in my savings total but I find that hard to believe - anyone else??
