Gretchen’s $63 Grocery Shopping Trip and Menu Plan for 5

Dillons #1

I shopped at two Dillons stores this week as I wanted to check for markdowns at both. We have THREE (yes, three!!) Dillons stores within a mile radius of our house so if I have a little bit of extra time, I like to do this. I didn’t find much produce marked down so I will probably pop back into one of them tomorrow since they usually mark down a lot of produce on Tuesdays.

2 boxes Nature’s Valley Panda Puffs – Marked down to $1 each

2 boxes Mott’s Fruit Snacks – $1.99 with e-coupon (no longer available)

1 Chobani Yogurt – $1, used Free e-coupon (no longer available) – Free after coupon
