My Shopping Trips for the Week of December 9!

Here are my shopping trips for the week of December 9. I went to 3 stores in 2 days. I spent $114.00 so far this week.

Simple Grocery Deal Tip: If you see an item is missing from the shelf, ask an associate if it is still available or in the back. I was able to cross everything off my list at Trader Joe's because the associate found the frozen pineapple in the back. They were so busy on Sunday that they didn't have time to restock the item. Even though Trader Joe's is relatively close to where I live, I didn't want to go back just for pineapple.

Sunday, December 9

I spent $23.29 at Trader Joe's

Trader Joe's has some of the best prices for frozen fruit, so it is still on my list of stores to shop at. I go once a month and save over $5.00 with each trip. That's over $60.00 a year. My kids love looking for the pirate and parrot in the store. They can't wait to get their "treasure", which is usually a cereal bar or lollipops!

Here is my list:
