Meijer Trip 9/24


I had ALOT  of rainchecks (one was for the waffle mix that I am going to use for my new Waffle Maker!) from past weeks and a $6 coupon off my purchase thanks to the Kool-Aid I got paid to buy last week, so I am just going to lay out the current deals that I snagged and the coupons I used.  I really want to stress the importance of getting rainchecks!  These can be a great tool to obtaining huge savings.  If a store is out of a particular item that you want to buy, go to customer service and they will issue you a raincheck good for thirty days.  (At Meijer, the quantity on the raincheck is 6, but if you were going to buy more ask for two rainchecks.  An example of where you would want to do this would be if they were out of the canned vegetables this week.)

I also picked up a few steaks and used the mealbox coupon for $1 off Naturewell Beef.  We didn’t need any milk or bread.  My total at Meijer was:  $32.39 + I recieved a $6 coupon for the lunchables for my next order.

**I am relatively new to detailing everything on paper, so if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments!  Thanks!

**The items that I bought multiple of had tons left of the shelf.  If there had only been a few, I would have not bought as many.  I definitely don’t want to be a shelf clearer!
