I went a little crazy at the Meijer 10/$10, get the 11th item free sale. I was running low on some of the sale items, though they were out of stock on a few items on my list. The guy at customer service was great with the rainchecks, automatically writing them out in increments of 11, so you get the one free and makes it easier to spend. Here’s how I did – not a personal best on saving, but I did need most of these items (well, except for the cookies….wait, I always need cookies!):


6 bottles of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce 2/$3 – minus $1/2 Q’s (3)

2 loaves bread $.98 each

12 boxes of Meijer brand pasta 3/$2 – assorted shapes

10 boxes Rice-A-Roni - $1 each

6 boxes Pasta-Roni - $1 each

10 cans (16 oz.) Bush’s Baked Beans - $1 each -$1/5 Q’s (2)

11 boxes Meijer brand cookies $1 each (love their cookies!)

6 bottles Wishbone salad dressing -$.50/1 peelies (6) - $1/2 MBQ (3) = FREE

4 jars Meijer brand pasta sauce - $1 each

3 pkgs. Aunt Millie’s English muffins $1

4 - 8oz. pkgs. Meijer brand organic mushrooms $1 each


Item quantity count = 74

Total before coupons & savings $120.29

Minus sales/coupons $60.17 – savings percent is 50%. Not a personal best, but many of these are meal basics for me.

Grabbed rainchecks for Meijer ground turkey 1 lb. rolls, Country Crock (got Q’s to make this free), and Meijer pasta sauce – they were out of the “good” flavors. I love the red pepper and garlic as well as the 3 cheese. I was shocked by how quickly they sold out of the rock-bottom items and the freebies. During the week, it’s not usually that bad. The upside – this gives me more time to eat out of the freezer to make room for all that ground turkey!

    Fifty percent savings is not bad--it looks like you got a lot of basics for Annie's Market. Good job!

    I sure wish ground turkey would go on sale here. You did some great shopping.
