Food Lion Deals!

Every once in a while, Food Lion has some bargains.  Their "Big Deal" promotion is going on now through Oct. 25.  Here's what I scored today:

4 14oz. boxes Cheerios
2 boxes Kelloggs Fiber Plus Cereal
4 Pillsbury Biscuit Sandwich
8 Yoplait Greek Yogurt
2 Pillsbury Orange Rolls

Not on their Big Deal Sale:

4 Steamfresh Vegetables
2 All Detergent

I also bought meat(discounted) and snacks for school lunches(without coupons!).

Total items:  36
Spent:  $40.71
Coupons Tendered:  $46.86

A few notes about shopping at Food Lion:

-Make a list of the Big Deal items you are planning to buy or grab a Big Deal Flier by the register/customer service-it has all of the Big Deal items listed for you.

-Make sure you get the right sized item(for example, there are 3 sizes of Cheerios boxes, make sure you get the one that is tagged for the Big Deal)

-The weekly ad is somewhat confusing.  I really had to pay attention to what was a Big Deal item versus what was just on sale.

-Make sure you have the correct increment of items.  You have to buy either 10, 20, or 30 items to get either $5, $10 or $15 back.  One way to help keep track is to place ten items at a time in your reusable bags as you shop.  It's easier to count ten items at a time than thirty.

Sound confusing?  It's designed that way.  You have to pay attention in order to get the best deals.  Since I don't usually shop at Food Lion, I had to go up and down each aisle to find everything.  Make sure you leave yourself enough time to shop.
