Do we know how to live it up or what? Tonight for date night we drove by a possible rental, ate at In-N-Out Burger and went shopping at a new store that had fantastic prices. It’s been a wild week for a number of reasons, so it was nice to spend time with my honey and be able to cross something off my list (grocery shopping) as well.

$35 and some change bought us all this!

The prices were amazing:
bananas 4#/$1
grapes $.88/#
5 # bag potatoes $.97 each
apples $.97/#
corn 4/$1
strawberries $.88/#
rice $.59/#
oats $.79/#
eggs $.99/dozen

The milk was not a great deal, but we were completely out and it wasn’t worth another stop.

This weekend, however, I’ll be stocking up on tri-tip at Ralphs. It has been oft requested all summer, but never on sale. I kept saying, “Wait for Labor Day.” Lo and behold – one of the grocery stores came through for me and I’ll be getting it at my target meat price, $1.99/#. Ralphs is also tripling coupons this week, so I’ll take advantage of using some lower value coupons at the same time.

Did you nab any great grocery deals this week?

    I did a similar post a few weeks ago, about how to save a lot of money at supermarkets. I generally save about 20 to 30 percent. We don't have Ralphs around here, but I used to shop there in California.

    Whoot whoot – now that is what I call the epitome of a date night. I am right there with you, my friend, and can't tell the number of nights we've had like that. 🙂

  4. Was this all from Ralphs? I am impressed! I used to shop at Vons and Trader Joe's and now pick and choose between Fred Meyer and Sam's Club.

    No, this was a local health food store. That's where I find the great deals on produce. Ralphs is on the agenda for later this weekend.

  6. WOW! You shock and amaze me everytime! I am so impressed, I have started to pay attention to coupons and occasionally remembered to bring them with me.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
