Saturday's Bargains

Saturday evening I headed to our local Hy-vee. It was just a few minutes before 8pm; and yes, the time was part of my strategy. I knew I only had $15.32 remaining for the month of January and I knew that I wanted to pick up on some deli meat (1/2 price after 8pm) and some Dannon kids yogurt drinks (I can never think of the name of these things) that were on sale 2/$3.

See, the great thing about going at that time, besides the 1/2 price deli meat, is that there is almost no one there. You can take your time and actually compare prices without feeling rushed or crowded. Here are is my purchase:

1 lb of Sara Lee premium roast beef (usually $6.50 a pound, 1/2 price): $3.25 total
.75 lb of Delusso Genoa Salami (usually $6.00 a pound, 1/2 price): $2.21 total
2 packages of the Dannon smoothies: $3.00 total
3 boxes of Fiber One cereal bars: $8.00 total before coupons, $5.00 after coupons
1 box of Fiber One toaster pastries: FREE with the purchase of 3 boxes of bars

Total purchase: $13.46

Month of January: Under budget by $1.86!!!

Wish me luck in February!
