Discount Store Stock Up and Double Coupon Trip

This weeks shopping trip is a bit different. I had some extra $ in the budget to do a little stocking up for the pantry of both food and non food items. K-Mart was doing their double coupons up to $2 again this week. Living in the land of no double coupons I try to take advantage of this when it comes up.

I also used some time today to check out the local Grocery Outlet and another Liquidator store that was new to me. I am so glad I did! I am not counting this stock up in my weekly grocery budget I will put that in a separate post (however those items are in this picture).

Sunshine Liquidators

4 pkg bagels ($1.29 each)
1 box granola bars $1.50
1 jar peanut butter/white chocolate mix $1.50
1 lb. ground Starbucks coffee $4.00
5 coffee cups (for 2009 Christmas Gift box) .75
Another item I picked up were 2 packages of cornmeal not to eat but to make this fun SANDBOX project for my youngest son! Total cost $1

Total spent: $13.97

Not going to put the price for each because I am not 100% sure. I do know some items ended up FREE. My "original price" total was $93.38. I paid out of pocket $38.83. That is a savings of $54.55!!
