Harris Teeter

All of the things in the picture were bought earlier in the week when Harris Teeter was running a 3-day Double Dollar Coupon event, so these deals are no longer available. I wasn’t able to make it to the store until the final day of the sale, so they were out of many of the freebies, but I still was happy with what I got (especially the free Sola ice cream and ice cream bars ;))!

Total after Coupons and Rebates: $7.25

Grocery Total for the Week: $58.13

    I haven’t seen bread flour at my Aldi. Are they carrying it now? That would be awesome since I bake all our bread.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      I don’t think they are. I just wrote it on the list for him to check and see – they get in new stuff all the time, so I’m hopeful! 🙂

  • Kristine says:

    I am amazed at the cost of the food you buy and frankly not feeling like a good steward of our money. Curious where you live? Things in our area are 2-3X more.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      We are in Rock Hill, SC (about 30 minutes away from Charlotte, NC). I’ve also lived in Detroit, MI and Wichita, KS. So I’ve done the Midwest and the South, and been able to find these kinds of prices in all of those areas. I KNOW the East and West Coasts are much, MUCH more expensive, and if you live in a pricey area you just have to do the best you can. I’m sorry – I bet you are doing a better job than you are giving yourself credit for! 🙂
