My Bi-Lo Trip: $171 in groceries for $43 (Food Pantry Trip!)

Jamie here!  Friday night I headed to Bi-Lo with coupons in hand – and I came home with a good little haul for the family – and a GREAT little haul for my church’s food pantry!  See the Bi-Lo ad for deals HERE

The items above were $171.46 (before Bonuscard Savings and coupons)
I saved $128, using coupons, rainchecks from previous weeks, and competitor coupons
Total = $43.46 *Appr. 75% Savings

Includes: (2) packs of chicken breast, (2) London Broil roasts, (1) Gallon milk, (4) Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats, (1) Bag of Apples, (1) pepper, (1) onion, (1) garlic bread, (1) cumin spice, (2) cans hormel chili, (2) cans black beans, (1) can SH Ro-Tel, (1) SH Zipper Storage Bags, (2) bags Fast Fixin Chicken patties, (1) Tostitos scoops, (2) Packs Keebler Cookies, (4) Boxes Fiber One Bars, (23) cans of Emeril’s Bam Meals, (8) Boxes Velveeta Cheesy Skillets

*Also earned a FREE Milk Catalina Coupon, and $0.15 in Fuelperks

Those Emerils canned meals (23 in all) & about half the Velveeta meals are headed to my church food pantry – I bought extra coupons for those items on Ebay (in case you’re wondering how I ended up with so many)

    I would like to know if you had coupons for the meat that you purchased and if you did, how did you receive them? I am new to all this coupon and savings when shopping, need all help I can get!

    Great shopping trip!! I hope to do as well when I go to Bi Lo tomorrow.
    I just hope that not everyone took 23 cans of the Emeril’s pasta since I have 4 coupons that I would like to redeem (and feed my family with).
    It’s commendable that you’re donating it but that’s a little extreme, I hope you left some on the shelf for the rest of us.

      Sue – best of luck on your trip, I’m sure you’ll do great! I certainly did leave lots and lots on the shelf – I actually asked ahead for my Bi-Lo to order extra. Let us know how your trip goes!
