Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you had a wonderful sunny weekend and scored some mega deals while shopping (*coughKristincough*). I know I did…between one of my good friends visiting and a super nice sales clerk, this one was a win. 🙂
Tip of the Week
Bring your coupons back and speak up! Last week I was super disappointed that my Whole Foods didn’t have the latest coupon booklet so I missed out on some sales. Luckily, WF and many other stores allow you to bring your receipt + the coupons back and get a refund. I do this all the time. Sometimes its a last-minute stop and I don’t have my coupons with me. Sometimes, I just forget I have a coupon for a product. And other times I’m waiting for the coupons to be reset so I can print more. Any and all of the above count.
This week however, the simple adjustment went so much better than I could have expected. Not only did I need to get the $ back for the coupon I also needed to fix one of the items I had purchased which was put in as the wrong price. When I explained everything to the clerk (I didn’t have the WF coupons with me because I thought the new booklets would be out, etc), he offered to refund me the entire amount for both mistakes due to the store inconveniencing me. I seriously could have kissed the kid.
So don’t be afraid to bring your coupons back and nicely speak up about mistakes on your receipt.
So I didn’t do a great job meal planning this week. I know there will be homemade hummus, massaged kale salad, and a raw pasta dish at some point but otherwise, I’m going to let creativity + cooking challenges take over.
As usual, there will also be lots of smoothies, avocado toast, and fruit.
Farmers Market: $23
Whole Foods: $19.44
Oh this week…we needed toilet paper and hand soap and a bunch of pantry staples plus all of our regular goodies. And its just me! So I knew I would spend a little more and planned accordingly. I was fully prepared to go without the Trader’s trip until that happy little exchange with the WF man. 🙂
Whole Foods: $20.73
Total: $31.57 (55%)
55% essentially means I got twice as much stuff than I paid for. I’ll take it!
