Food Lion Trip- Saved 64%!

 Pictured: 2.3 pounds of red seedless grapes, 5 pound bag of Gala Apples, 3 pound bag of Yellow onions, 2 Velveeta Shells n Cheese, 2 Hormel Dinner Entrees no preservatives, Chicken Legs Pack, Chicken Thighs Pack, 2 Pantene Shampoos, 2 Pantene Styling Products, 2 Ragu Pasta Sauces, 16 oz Spaghetti Noodles, Food Lion brand.

I decided to take advantage of the $5 off $25 coupon at Food Lion this week, especially since Food Lion had some meat and produce sales that I wanted to take advantage of. 

In the end, I spent $22.73 and before coupons or MVP discounts the total was $63.27. Total saved was 64%, which I think is great, especially for a grocery store that doesn't double coupons.

The Pantene Deal was good (thank you, Sheila M!). Pantene Pro-V is on sale for B1G1 Free. I had a B1G1 free coupon that expired on May 31st, so after using the B1G1 free sale plus coupon they both came out free. Those alone were worth about $16. Although the coupon has expired, if you need Pantene, the sale is still a good one and you can take advantage of the B1G1 sale through Tuesday night. Also, fingers crossed that there may be a Pantene Coupon tomorrow in the Sunday paper.

Food Lion has a sale right now where if you buy two Ragu Pasta Sauces, then you get the 16 oz Food Lion brand Spaghetti noodles for free! I had a Ragu Coupon that made that deal even better.

Holly Farms Chicken legs and thighs are 50% off, so this is a good week to get chicken.

Finally, there are produce sales right now that are pretty good, in particular the $1.29 red seedless grapes. Grapes can be so expensive, so I always get them when on sale. I got some on Thursday and will get more on Tuesday evening, to help last us through the next week.

Keep in mind that you can download coupons from Food Lion's website. Go to and look at the top left. Click "Savings and promotions" and then click "Coupons." Follow the simple instructions and you can download to your Food Lion MVP card.

If you shop Food Lion this week be sure to print the $5 off $25 coupon. It may also be accepted at some Harris Teeter locations. HT policy says they don't accept internet printed compettitor's coupons but Cheryl S. from the Delly's Deals Facebook page says they took it at her Harris Teeter. So it's certainly worth a try!
