My Weekly Shopping Trip for September 1!

I am budgeting $100.00 for the week of September 1 for groceries. I was over my budget in August and am working on bringing the spending down. I am under my budget with the help of toothpaste! It was a $6.00 money maker that I used toward my additional purchases at Whole Foods Market that weren't originally on my shopping list.

Yes, I made 2 trips to Shoprite this weekend. I went on Saturday to pick up the flyer for Sunday, but unfortunately the coupon overlays were not available until Sunday. I picked up a few items that were on my list and still on sale through the end of the day. Here is what I purchased this week, not pictured below is the cheese from Costco and the vegetables from the Farmer's Market:

I spent $14.62 at Shoprite

I earned $1.75 from Ibotta when I purchased the Halo ice cream and used the any item offer.

If you haven't already, take advantage of the latest SuperCoupons at Shoprite available until September 8. I was surprised to find that the money maker deal for Colgate actually worked at our local Shoprite. Often, when there is an overage on a product with a coupon, the cashier adjusts the price of the coupon to bring the total to 0. That has happened even when the difference is a penny at the store I shop at. Here is the math:

Product Amount Price Total
Colgate Total Advanced White 2 $2.99 $5.98
Colgate Total Clean Mint 2 $2.99 $5.98
Subtotal $11.96
Weekly Sale Price 4 for $8.00 $-3.96
SuperCoupon Insert with Sales Flyer 4 for $4.00 -$4.00
Colgate Total Digital Coupon for 1 2 $1.00 -$2.00
Colgate Total Digital Coupon for 2 1 $4.00 -$4.00
Clipped Coupons (SS 8/26, exp. 9/8) 2 $2.00 -$4.00
Final Total -$6.00
