I am so excited but I almost missed it. Food Lion, our local grocery store, is having my favorite sale of the year. The quarter back sale! Basically for every “store brand” item you buy you receive a quarter back for your next order/ trip. I usually watch for this sale and plan ahead making sure I stock up on things like ketchup and mustard. Opps missed that whole sale announcement. I went to the store last night to purchase a few groceries needed to make baked ziti. As I am walking around the store, I see the sale sign and know I need to take advantage of it. I quickly start thing and start exchanging items in my cart for store brands in addition to trying to find the best deals. I grabbed muffin mix, pasta mix, rice mixes and some breakfast items that we always need! Matt was excited to see hot sauce (6 bottles). I also found some items on clearance that increased my total but overall I am so excited. My overall goal was to purchase the needed items with “quarter back”,
By the numbers:
Original items on the list $25.45
Summer clearance Items (skewers) $ 2.79
Total Spent $54.90
Total Saved $30.18
Saving Percentage is 54.97%
Food Lion is the only local grocery store and to save 55% on store brand items is AWESOME!
We are using the cash method for groceries this month which makes it a bit more difficulty for me to make another trip because I want to keep my cash. I will likely wait and monitor sale and make only one trip a week for the rest of the month!
