Cheap Vons & Target Shopping Trip

by Jess on February 22, 2011

VONS: Total Out of Pocket $8.24

It’s been awhile since I last shared a coupon shopping trip and it’s a slooooow day for deals so I thought it would be fun to share my shopping adventures from today with ya guys. Keep in mind I’m not shopping for a big family, just myself, so my trips are usually pretty small.

Today I dropped in Vons and was pretty excited to score a small top round steak for only 18¢ using the $2 Rancher’s Reserve coupon from the Joy of Football Coupon Booklet. The coupon doesn’t stipulate a minimum purchase for the meat so I snagged the smallest package I could find that was priced around $2.00. It’s not much, but will be perfect for stir-fry and at 18¢ I’m not passing up that opportunity :)

Jess, is the Finish an ongoing deal. I hope so. I usually boycott Target due to their contributions to anti-gay lawmakers or propositions, but I will drop my morals and beliefs and grab me some free Finish. :-)

I believe the Finish is on a temporary price cut until 3/12 :)
