Vons

posted in Uncategorized |

Have you ever gone to the supermarket on Superbowl Sunday? Me neither. Remember I’ve been out of the country for nearly ten years.

When I got up this morning and opened the paper and saw the great deals that Vons had going on, including a $10/$50 purchase, I got excited. I talked to Handsome about it and I decided to go in the afternoon.

I should have known something was up when I got the front of the stoor and there weren’t any trollies. Not a single one.

I walked in and saw lines that were going down the aisles they were so long.

I got all my stuff and got in line. I just picked one randomly because I had to start in the aisles and couldn’t compare line lengths. Guess what number in line I was? Just guess.

I was #9. EIGHT PEOPLE WERE IN FRONT OF ME!

While I was in line I starting adding up my stuff to make sure I had $50 worth of stuff. I knew it was $50 before manufacturer’s coupons, but not sure if it was before or after Vons coupons. I quickly added a bag of chips, just in case. Good thing too, because I was right on the border. We’ll take them to a party later today.

So, I spent approximately $35 out of pocket and saved $85, according to my receipt. I should have saved an additional $1.50, but I forgot two of my coupons. I hate it when I do that!!

What did I buy?

3 x Cheerios = 1.88 each minus $1 off 3 coupon

2 x Kleenex = $2 total, minus $.80 coupons

2 x Glade candles = $3, minus $1.50 coupon

2 x Kraft cheese = $3.98 (and this is where I forgot the two .75 coupons! Which would be a great price for cheese)

1 x white bread = $.69

17 pounds of ground beef = $28

2 x avocados = 1.36 (and if you were wanting to make fresh guacamole today, NONE of those avos would do it. They are rock hard)

1 x 64oz apple juice = $.99

1 x potato chips - $1.69

1 x frozen pizza = FREE with $25 purchase

Total after coupons: $35.89 (remember, I got $10 off $50 purchase)

So now I have a lot of ground beef to deal with. I want to make some hamburger patties to freeze and the rest I’ll just freeze in 1 lb bags.

And I will remember next year to not shop on Superbowl Sunday. Or at least wait until the game has started.
