Shopping Trip 2/22-2/28

Did not need much this week, infact most of this weeks shopping trip is just stock up on sales I couldn't pass up.

This week our local grocery store had turkey breasts on sale .98# but it was a limit of 1. I have been there 3 times to pick up turkey breasts (verified with them it was 1 per customer per shopping trip so I wasn't breaking any rules). I picked up a total of 3 turkey breasts, 2 of which went into the freezer for later and 1 of which is in the oven now. I spent $9.54 on the 2 I purchased earlier in the week.

Todays shopping trip:

Cost Cutter:
5# sugar $1.97
10 hamburger helper $10.00 (my kids love this)
2 gallons milk $3.98 (noticed the price of milk has gone down YEAH)
1 frozen turkey breast $4.69
1 cool whip $2.00
1 pkg bagels $2.50
2 # butter - $2.98 (store coupon 1# for $1.49 lmt 2)

1 bag chips $2.00
4 2 ltr root beer $3.08 (store sale of .77 each like to keep on hand for treat for the kids)
