Sprouts, Kroger, Tom Thumb Shopping

I am so excited for my daughter she received 4 out of 5 medals on Wednesday at the academic awards ceremony. She did very well from where she started this year. Way to go Little Miss. I am so proud of her.

There was just not much at Kroger or Tom Thumb this week. I think I have twenty pounds of hot dogs. We now have enough for all summer. I know that sounds like a lot, but I know we are going to be feeding more than our own kids this summer and at $0.50 for a pound of hot dog meat is awesome. I also scored some buns for $0.89 each. This is the cheapest I have ever seen hot dog and hamburger buns.  Of course I stocked up.

Here is how I did for the week:

Tom Thumb

(2) Hamburger buns $0.89 – In store coupon
(7) Hot Dogs buns $0.89 – In store coupon
(2) Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs $0.98 - $1/2 Oscar Mayer hot dogs SS 05/15/11
            -Final $0.49 each
(2) Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs $0.98 - $0.75/1 Printable FB – No longer available
            -Final $0.24 each

I spent $9.47 and saved $16.42. Total retail price for all food purchased at Tom Thumb $25.89.

(0.69)lbs Roma Tomatoes @$0.69 lbs
            -Final $0.46
(1) lbs Carrots $0.89

I spent $8.02 on produce I received a $0.05 bag credit for brining my own bag to shop at Sprouts. If you have a farmers market it is also good to stock up on veggies there. The later you go the more the people are willing to bargain with you. They really don’t want to take anything home and you can get better deals.
