Today we decided to go to all three stores. First we went to Walgreens, then Publix and last Winn-Dixie. I was really impressed with my savings today.
14 cents Powerade + 98 cents trailmix = perfect halftime nourishment
"Drink powerade, Get powered up!" Because strategic shopping IS a sport!
My favorite quote from her today was when she looked at me dead serious, with wisdom-filled eyes, and said, "Now, you can't be scared of looking like a nerd when you play The Grocery Game." Nerd? You just gave away your age my friend.
We really enjoyed our time together, and she didn't mind hearing me sing "Get your clip on, get your clip, getcha getcha getcha getcha Getcha clip on" (sung to the tune of a once popular Missy Elliott song).
The beauty of The Grocery Game is that you build a stock pile so that when you run out of something, you go to your home store (the mini-grocery store you've created). That way, you're not at the mercy of the seller and their prices. And another great thing is that you try brands and items that you may have never tried. Take for instance, my new found love for Sara Lee's Soft and Smooth bread. I mean, yes we've just started dating but we're already looking at rings. It is soooo good!
Okay, I should really get to the main star of this post: The Savings!
Walgreens: saved $81.42 spent 102.97
Winn Dixie: saved $54.61 spent $ 74.71
Publix: saved $54.14 spent $51.53
In other words, I got $419.38 worth of groceries for only $229.21! Go ahead, have a seat, take all the time you need. Let me know when you wanna join in. Matt couldn't believe it. If I keep coming home with receipts like this, I could single-handedly be bringin' sexy back.
Savings like this deserve a heel click!And THAT'S pretty much what's up.
