My Meijer Shopping Trip: Produce for $0.50/lb.

Here’s what I picked up at Meijer today with my $5 mPerks coupons (mine and my husband’s) from last Saturday.

Transaction #1

Angel Soft Bath Tissue (12 double rolls) – $5.49
- $5 mPerks coupon
Final price $0.52 after tax

I saved 91% off my grocery bill.

Transaction #2

I found apples on the seconds shelves for just $0.59/lb and there were even a few organic apples thrown in. We usually pick apples this time of years and can over 50 quarts of applesauce. We’ve been feeling quite blue about the damaged crops this year. This isn’t near the volume that we usual get , but I’m planning to make slow cooker applesauce and an apple pie. Yum!

Apples (23.13 lb.) = $13.65
Red Grapes (5.05 lb.) – $0.99/lb. = $5
Green Beans (1.26 lb.) – $0.99/lb. = $1.25
- $5 mPerks coupon

I paid $14.89 out of pocket for 29.38 lb. of produce. That’s right around $0.50 a pound!

And I didn’t clear the shelves…there was an addition rack full of apples when I left at the store ;)
