Meijer Trip April 6th

Not all trips can be the best of the best.....right? I keep repeating that to myself as I think about my trip to Meijer today.  My goal is to save at least 50% every time I shop.  That didn't happen today.  A big part of that was the Salmon I put on my menu plan for Thursday.  I almost always see Salmon reduced to $5.99/lb at Meijer.  Not today though.  We haven't had it for a long time and it sounds so good to me that I can't wait for Thursday.  So I splurged and paid .... $8.99/lb.  GULP!  I did buy just enough for hubby and me.  I'll marinate chicken breasts for the boys instead.  They don't appreciate Salmon enough for me to pay that much for it for them.

I took advantage of the P&G Rebate offer at Meijer so I'll be getting a $10 Pre-paid Mastercard back.  I had coupons that matched up nicely to make this an even sweeter deal.

Here's what I bought ....

Dylan was very good during our shopping trips to Jungle Jim's and Meijer.  He noticed this Mac & Cheese on a clearance cart at Meijer.  With the cutest smile he said "Look Mom it's reduced!"  That was all it took and it was in the cart.

I spent $59.34 total and saved $21.25 ... $15.94 of that was coupons.  That's a savings of 26%.  I'll get $10 back for the P&G rebate.  So in the end the savings will be 38%.
