Tropical Supermarket (IGA): Super Cheap Meat!

Spent: $25.34

This store is called Tropical Supermarket, which is part of the IGA chain. There were some killer meat deals at this store, some of which were unadvertised. I'll try to compare some of the prices to what you would pay at Publix, Winn-Dixie, and some other stores.

Hormel Bacon, $2.50 Sale (WOW!)
Publix/Winn-Dixie Usual Sale Price = Approx $3.99

Split Chicken Breasts, $0.57/lb (WOW!)
On Sale at Winn-Dixie for $1.49/lb this week.

Ground Beef, $1.99/lb (WOW!)
Albertson's is usually the only store that will beat this at $1.88/lb; Winn-Dixie's lowest price has been $2.49/lb; Publix has a current sale of $2.79/lb ; Aldi is about $2.29/lb.

Beef Chuck Steak, $2.67/lb Sale
I am unsure of the competitors' price, but the package of 3 steaks were a little over $5, making each serving about $1.70 each.

One Dozen Large Eggs, $1.67 each (3/$5.00)
Medium eggs were $0.99 but were out of stock. Winn-Dixie has their large eggs for the same price this week. Regular price at Publix is $2.10 or so. W-D's regular price is $2.20 or so. Aldi was $1.59 last week.

Celery, $0.57
On sale at Publix for $0.99.

Yellow Onions, $0.97 for 2lb bag. 
Most likely $0.99 for 1 pound at Publix and Winn-Dixie. 

Broccoli Bunch, $1.78
On sale at Publix and Winn-Dixie for $2.50.

CVS: Groceries at the Drug Store (and others not pictured)

Spent: $15.82
Saved: $27.68
Total Value: $43.50
Percent Saved: 64%

ECBs Used: $2.00
ECBs Earned: $1.00

So, I did a little grocery shopping at CVS today. Some of the prices were not the best in the world, but oh well. There are two items that I bought that are not in the photo because it's for a year-round Secret Santa kind of thing we do at work. There weren't coupons for those items, but the $5.00/$25.00 coupon and $2.00 ECBs I had pretty much paid for it. I had to hide it just in case the person happens to stumble upon this blog. I highly doubt that would happen, but you never know...

$5.00 off $25.00 Purchase CVS Coupon

$2.00 ECBs from last purchase

Bumble Bee Tuna, $0.59 Sale
This could have been $0.09 each if I had the $1 off two Recycle Bank coupon, but I don't use that.

Blue Diamond Almonds, $4.19
Buy One Get One Free
$1.00 off two Blue Diamond Almonds
(Made it $1.60 each)
AWFUL PRICE. The price for one at Publix is $3.19. Walgreens has it for $3.69 and they also have my favorite honey roasted flavor too. I'm saving my last two coupons for a Walgreens sale. They usually go BOGO there all the time.

Eggs, $1.59 Sale 
I didn't know T. G. Lee distributed eggs.

Dawn Hand Renewal w/ Olay, $0.99 Sale
$0.50 off Dawn Hand Renewal Coupon
(Made it $0.49)

Oral B Ultimate Floss, $2.99 Sale
$1.00 ECB
$1.00 off Manufacturer Coupon
(Made it $1.99 not including the ECB)
I broke my rule of never paying for floss.

Miscellaneous items were a total of $7.24 plus tax.
