April’s Shopping Haul #1

Aprils Shopping Haul #1

April Shopping Haul #1

Due to my health issues and severe pain when turning my head, writing, lifting my arms or driving, I chose to shop locally and with hubby this time.

I also decided to not to “stock up” on too many basics (we still have some fairly full cabinets and freezers).   Instead we shopped sales and bought meats.

Save A Lot

Save A Lot Shopping Haul April 2016Save A Lot in our hometown is my favorite place to shop.  Not only do they have a clean store, great help, good prices and a wonderful fresh deli and meat.  They are literally right next door.  I always shop there first because I know the owners and prefer to share my business with them before I share it with anyone else.  I always take the lists I have created for County Market, Aldis, and Walmart in to Save A Lot so that I can compare prices to see if I discover they are running a special or carrying an item for a special period.

Example:  This week County Market offered Cap’n Crunch Cereal for $1.69 with a Penny PincherSave A Lot offered the same box (actually slightly larger) for only $1.59.  Cap’n Crunch is not an item you usually find on their shelves so I originally had it on my County Market list.  (I made the decision not to purchase it after reading the ingredients but knowing it was an option was nice).

I generally try to avoid shopping too much at Walmart because I can get better deals by shopping ads and coupons but this week’s complications made it the best choice.

We have two photos because I did not wish to ask hubby to lift the heavy waters and cat food to the island or table top.  He had already been shopping and was going to help freezer prep & cook after we put everything away.
