Grocery Geek Presents: Albertsons is My Besty

Posted By Jessica Fisher On October 17, 2009 @ 12:54 am In Grocery Geek | 5 Comments


Grocery Geeks start early around here. This is FishBaby helping me unload the other night. I’ve gone a little crazy with the shopping and cooking ahead [5]. But, according to Quicken, I’ve only spent $360 so far for the month. Often I find an error in my data entry, but here’s hoping not. My freezers still hold about 33 meals [6], so the rest of my grocery budget can go toward milk, produce, and stockpiling. Good thing, too, ’cause Albertsons and I are becoming “besties.” We go way back, you remember [7].


I got all that is in this photo for $4.40! After coupons and sales, the pastas ranged from $.20 – $.50 per package. The popcorn was $.20. I know that my fam may balk a little at the whole wheat pasta, but I’m hoping to sneak it past them by mixing it with the white pasta. We shall see.

Albertsons did play a trick on me a few weeks ago. The stock-up sale on flour was only for bleached flour. But, I’m hoping that they’ll redeem themselves this week with this great Catalina deal [9]. I have enough coupons [10] to get 4 bags of flour for $.70 each! There are a ton of other items, like yogurt, cereal, and frozen veggies to add to my stockpile. Yeah!

Part of my weekend round-up includes stops at up to FIVE different stores (I know…) because great stock-upportunities abound. I’m hoping to work it into our regular weekend travels so that I’m not making a special trip anywhere. You’ll be sure to hear more from this grocery geek in the next week!

Got a great deal this week? Share it with us!
