And Here's Price Chopper

Here is the last of the grocery purchases for the week. There were a few deals at Price Chopper and I had to go to the library (which is in the same general parking lot) anyway, so I made a quick trip. I HATE this Price Chopper, but it is the only one convenient to me, so I occasionally have to go there. I have one I like MUCH better, but I'm not in that part of town very frequently. I do go to that one whenever I can. McKeever's Price Chopper is constantly posting mis-leading prices (as you will see below) and the employees are the rudest I've ever encountered at a grocery store, management included! trip was not without issue, but here we go:

Froot Loops - sale $1.75, used $1.50 coupon
Dole celery - sale $.99
Tenderized round steak - $1.22
2 Eckrich smoked sausage - sale $1.79 each, used 2 $1.00/1 coupons
2 Westpac frozen corn - sale $.75 each
2 Westpac frozen broccoli - sale $.75 each
2 Lean Pockets - sale $1.45, used 2 .50/1 coupons
1 corn muffin mix (for a specific recipe) - $.45
Digiorno Flatbread Melt - used free item coupon
Twix bar - used free item coupon
Meow Mix cat entree - used free item coupon
1 eggplant - $2.47 (GRRR!!!! I read the sign super carefully and it stated the eggplant was $1.49. Period. At the register, it was per POUND, and the sign did NOT say per pound - typical of this Price Chopper! This was purchased for a specific recipe you will see on next week's menu plan.)
Water chestnuts - $.99
Bamboo shoots - $.99
2 lbs. blueberries - sale $3.75
4 lb. sugar - sale $1.19

Total spent $20.51

Total for the week $72.93. My budget is $70 a week, so I'm a little over. I'll just have to be more careful next week! :-)

I love our Price Choppers, but none of them are McKeever's around here. There are two bright and shiny new ones not far from here, but I prefer our not-so-new one close to the house. I know where everything is and everyone's super friendly there.

I live in Olathe and wasn't sure if you were aware that Wal-mart will price match the competitors ads. This saves having to go to multiple stores to get the deals. I take my grocery store ads as well as Aldi, Wal-green, CVS etc. along with my grocery list noting the price and store but they rarely question anything.
