Here’s My Shaw’s Trip For The Week

005

So, as you know, I have not been posting my shopping trips for a specific reason. However, I do know that some of you rely on them to get some of the deals. This is what I was able to get this week.

As always, be sure to look all of the deals this week at Shaw’s to determine which ones are best for you and your family.

Grand Total Before Coupons – $61.15
Total Spent – $39.83. Not bad!

Here’s My Shaw’s Shopping Trip!

002

So, there’s been more than enough confusion with regards to Shaw’s accepting competitor’s coupons. I did use comp. coupons this shopping trip and I plan on using them on my next shopping trip. It is nobody’s fault if they are overusing the coupons due to the fact that Shaw’s has been so vague with regards to this new, but temporary coupon policy. The only thing that I advise all of you is to look at the verbage on the coupon. If it states only 2 coupons per customer, then only use two, even if it’s not a Shaw’s coupon. My thinking behind this, is that if we don’t abuse it, then maybe they will bring it back again in the future.

Anywho…. I really wanted 4 boxes of the Vanilla Chex cereal and when I asked for them to call out back to see if they had anymore, not only did they not have any, but they said they didn’t even have any in the warehouse, if you can believe that! Damn we’re good!
