Have you entered this week's giveaway?
Okay, this isn't a true "Dollar Store vs. Coupons" challenge, but I think these pictures really say something:
Dollar Store - $2
I love these fruity flavored newton-y cookies - so much that I only get them about once a year. And $1 per package is not bad - no complaints from me.
King Sooper - $2.07
Several (okay, eleven) of the coupons were worth more than the items were priced, so the overages from those paid down the totals on the other items, so I really did get all of this for $2.07.
Asian Market - $5.98
The oyster sauce was nearly half the total, but it's crucial for the lo mein we make, and truly, this is about a year's supply of oyster sauce. A little dab'll do ya. Bananas were .39 a pound, and the tofu was 2/$2.25.
Sunflower Farmer's Market - $10.94
Awesome prices on produce - 88 cents a head for lettuce, 50 cents a pound for napa cabbage, 67 cents a pound for braeburn apples. All the prices were stellar, so we got a couple week's worth of produce (we also still have cabbage, carrots, mushrooms and citrus from last week), so we should be set for a while. Those Garden of Eatin' Chili Lime chips are my absolute favorite, and after sale and coupons they were .99 a bag. Yum.
We also got a couple things when we were in Walmart on Friday. I didn't take a picture - sorry. Just imagine a tub of sour cream, a jar of jalapenos, five Kool Aid packets (tropical punch) and a little bag of alphabet pasta. $3.73 at Walmart.
Total for all the all of it: $24.72
