Meijer Haul

This is a few days late-we've been pretty busy this week. The boys had an old friend come over for the weekend & they went back to school this week. Felix is practically crawling, & spent 4-5 days rocking back & forth before learning the army crawl tonight. No cats are safe now. :) Amongst all the business, we managed to get a bit of shopping done. We shopped Meijer's special Saturday sale. We didn't get as much as we could have, because we had to run to Greenwood to pick up some stuff my mother-in-law bought off Craigslist & Joel had to work that afternoon, so we were pretty rushed. Here's what we managed to get though:

2 lbs local green beans
1 pkg Smart Deli fake lunch meat
1 box cornstarch
6 nectarines
1 lb tofu
3 lbs apples
4 tubes Nivea lip balm
1 lb sour cream
2 lbs Oscar Mayer lunchmeat ( for Joel)
1 cucumber
8 oz portabellas
5 bags Meijer brand chips
4 bottles Lysol all-purpose cleaner
4 bottles Lysol toilet cleaner
1 lg tub organic salad greens
1 bottle hoisin
2 gallons milk
3 sm tubs margarine
2 lbs sliced Kraft cheese
1 lb Philly cream cheese
2 containers Activia yogurt
6 bottles Suave shampoo
2 4 pks parfait yogurts
1 bunch green onions
3 coloured bell peppers
1 local cantaloupe
1 lb hummus
4 Suave deodorants
1 other produce item I can't remember
Total spent: $85
Total saved:$86
Right around 50%-not as great as my other hauls lately, but not too shabby, especially considering there were several stockpile items. I was able to pass on some of my stockpile items this week to my oldest son's girlfriend who just got her first apartment & enrolled in college. It didn't even leave much of a dent to help her out, which is pretty cool.
