This is called "Shopping the Clearance Items!" I just needed some bananas and I was right by Lowes, so I decided to check out their lovely produce, meat, bakery and other marked-down sections. They do the best markdowns!! *No coupons necessary!*
Bananas ($0.55/lb wyb bag) - $1.40
Hawaiian honey wheat rolls (12) - $1.50 (bakery markdown)
Land O Frost turkey - $0.75
Hidden Valley salad kit - $1.40 (on markdown from $2.80)
Organic apples ($1.89/lb) - $1.53
Final OOP - $6.71
So, my final OOP doesn't show how much I saved. I saved $0.14/lb on the bananas by buying a whole bag, which comes to $0.38. I saved $2.19 by buying the Hawaiian Rolls on sale. I saved $1.40 on the salad kit. So altogether, I saved about $3.97 without even using coupons. Ah, the joy of clearance items!
