Groceries, 9/11/07

I haven't posted all my grocery shopping trips. I joined the brand new Costco and have done some stocking up/bulk buying there. It's not as easy (or fun) to post those sales, since I don't know exactly how much I've "saved" over other places' regular prices. But I will say that Costco is SO much better than Sam's Club (IMO) that I'm very happy I joined!

But I did have a good trip to Pick N Save today. I'm hoping to shop there less and less, since they've eliminated double coupon Wednesdays (grrrr!) and, of course, since I joined Costco. My *hope* is to do the majority of shopping for items that don't go on sale (and party stuff) at Costco, to buy produce at Sendik's or Farmer's Markets, and use Pick N Save to *only* buy their loss-leader items. Hope it'll work!

Total: $75.48
Savings: $58.71
Number of Items: 48
Pick N Save
