Still Outside The Bubble

So clearly, I learned my lesson going to two new-to-me Rite-Aid stores.  I did A-MAZ-ING!!  I popped into the Price Chopper for good measure.  They too were out of bread.  I have a rain check to use when it is hopefully back in stock next week though.  And I ended up shopping on a hungry tummy.  Hence the extra items that were not on sale and were coupon-less.  Those Philly Swirl pops are so yummy though!  I also realize that you might think that I never eat fruit and veggies.  Trust me, I do.  But I think this might be the first time I've remembered to take a pic of a PChop run.

Not bad for an unplanned shopping trip.  Honestly, if I save more than 40% at the grocery store, I'm pleased.  I just do not have quite the same grocery savings luck as others.  I'm getting better but like all things, it's a process.  Oh and I tried the chocolate oatmeal this morning and it is sooo yummy!

I haven't figured out my percentage yet, but I am happy if I save over $30. I am sure it is something only like 25%, but for now it is an improvement.
