Sensibly Extreme Couponing: This week's grocery trip for under $15

Hey everyone!  This week I did some more stocking up at ShopRite to take advantage of another $10 off $50+ coupon as well as two $5 Catalina coupons I earned from previous weeks.  I couldn't let $20 go to waste!

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of my deals this week.  Hubby had 3(!) phone interviews today, plus the little one's schedule was way off from being sick -- by the time I made it out to the store and back, we had to rush for dinner and it wasn't until halfway through putting everything away that I realized I forgot to snap a quick picture of it all!  Hopefully you can trust me on this. :)

Here's what I brought home today:

  • ShopRite Apple Juice, on sale for $1.79

Plus I got a $2 Catalina from buying 4 boxes of Ziploc bags, to use next week!  We use Ziploc bags a lot for freezing meat and produce so it was a great opportunity to stock up!

I also went to Aldi and got 2 loaves of whole wheat bread, a jar of salsa and some romaine hearts for $6.25.  Doesn't seem like nearly as good of a deal when you look at everything I got above, but they truly have the best prices in town on many of the essentials!

This week was a huge rebate week for me.  Later this week I'll go in-depth on the ways you can earn cash back for grocery shopping and just how easy it is to do.
