Food Town trip 3/24/2010

I decided to make a go of Food Town for the first time. I saw some decent sales that I figured I could partake of if I played my cards right. Let me preface this by saying that I found out that Food Town is not a coupon friendly store. They onbly allowed a maximum of 2 ,like coupons per transaction and needed a manager to adjust down coupons and approve free item coupons from the Sunday paper. Had I known that, I would've just done 2 transactions. I didn't know that, so I ended up having the poor bagger pull our 4 items that I had more than 2 coupons for. The manager had to come by twice to approve coupons on 2 different transactions, and she was not happy about that. Oh well, random rules... right? I didn't do too badly overall. I also found they have great meat prices. I saw a huge beef roast for only $7! I don't have the freezer room or I would've gotten it. That thing could've fed my family 2-3 times alone!

  • 3-Paseo Paper Towels $0.77 each
