Quick Shopping Trip Tonight

Tonight I made a quick shopping trip to Dollar General and Farm Fresh.  They are both located within walking distance of my house so it’s not too much trouble for me to go to both.

I wanted to go to Dollar General because I need garbage bags and couldn’t find a good deal on them at any of the stores.  I also checked out the Hunt’s Snack Pack Puddings I was planning on getting at Harris Teeter and they were a few cents cheaper at Dollar General.

Here was the haul at Dollar General:

2 boxes Hefty Easy Flap 80 count boxes $7.50- On sale for $6.50
– $1/1 Hefty Waste Bags, exp. 3/31/12 (RP 01/01/12)
Final Price: $5.50 each or about $.08 each bag

12 boxes Hunt’s Snack Pack (4 pk) $1.00 each (most of these will be for the food pantry at church)
Used 3 $1/4 Hunts Snack Pack Pudding, exp. 2/5/12 (SS 01/01/12 R)
Final Price: $.75 each or about $.19 per cup
