Shopping Steals

When I went to the grocery this week... I did quite well. I don't do a lot of "couponing" because we don't buy a lot of packaged foods. Packaged = processed which we try to avoid as much as possible.

Here's some of the deals we found:
Ground Turkey (85/15) Real Meat, not mechanically separated, $0.99/lb
Frozen Tilapia 8 fillets (2 lbs) for $6.99
Thin sliced steak, 10 steaks (3 lbs) for $6.38

Organic Fuji Apples, .98/lb
Organic Navel Oranges, .98/lb
Organic baby carrots, .99/lb

Rice Chex Cereal 8 boxes, $1.00/box (Sale $1.50each if you buy 4, + .50/1 coupons)
Orange juice, $1.99/gallon

Milk, $1.99-$2.49/gallon (Organic milk on markdown, 5 days prior to sell by date).

2lbs local cheddar cheese, $3.99

Ragu Pasta Sauce 4 jars, .75 jar (sale, $1.25 each + $1.00/2 coupon)

Packaged pasta .75/box (we usually make ours, but some days its nice to have a box on hand for the daycare)

Once all was said and done, I did all our grocery and household shopping for the week (Family of 7 plus 4 daycare kids) for $142.00.
