Finding Good Grocery Deals

I still have a list of items to get before the baby is born, however, I’m coming very close to being finished.  In between cleaning and organizing and getting my birth supplies ready, I’m continuing to stock up on food and fill my freezer.  I guess you never come to a point where you are all stocked up….at least not around here!

Last week, I visited the bakery outlet bread store and bought over $20 worth of bread.  Most items were .69 cents a loaf up to $1.  I froze loaf bread, bagels and buns. 

Yesterday, I was able to take advantage of some really great grocery deals this week at Kroger and Publix which helped in the area of my freezer and pantry stockpile.  I came home with a ton of stuff and saved over $130 in coupons combined with sales.  It was a very fruitful trip, especially since the coupons I used were internet printable coupons, hang tag coupons I found, peelie coupons and blinkie machine coupons!  I also stopped off at Kroger and found lots of clearanced out bakery breads for .49 cents to $1 which I froze for using for french toast and pizza subs.  I found cheap Bolthouse drinks as well.  They had them clearanced out to $1.64, which is a great price anyway, but they also had “save .55 cents” hangtag coupons all over them as well!  The expiration dates weren’t until October, so I stocked up on some drinks for me. 

I was thrilled to find free sour cream, .25 cent yogurt, $1 cheese and $1.09 Bolthouse.  I pay regular price for the Stonyfield yogurt even if I don’t have coupons for it.  I love the plain whole yogurt and add organic frozen blueberries (from Costco) or I mix other Stonyfield flavors with the plain whole yogurt to make it not so sweet. 

Here are some of the sweet Publix deals:
