My most-hated household chore is grocery shopping. It is something I literally dread and something I don’t do pleasantly. When I was approached by Hilary from Dominick’s about their new Just for U program, I reluctantly agreed to give it a try. I am so glad I did!
I’m an organized shopper. Each week I make a list of meals I will make and then write out my list accordingly. The one thing I’m not so good at is coupons. Seriously, I always forget them. Or grow bored cutting them out. Or never use them before the expiration date.
That’s why the Just for U program proved to be an excellent fit for me! I registered for the program, linking it with my Dominick’s Fresh Values card. Then I went through the coupons available and added them to my Fresh Values card!
No cutting, no sorting, no worrying about expiration dates. They were right on the card I used when I checked out. By the way, if you forget your card, you can give the checker your phone number! It was so much fun watching the total grocery bill being reduced and reduced and reduced on the register! My grocery bill last week was around $151, after $25+ savings through the Fresh Values and Just for U programs.
I just glanced at the coupons for this week (they are updated weekly) and see that Progresso Vegetable Classic Soups (18-19oz.) are $.88 each and Cheetos or Fritos (7.75-9.5oz.) are $1.49! The boys might get snacks!
I also want to add that my shopping experience at the Dominicks on Gary Avenue in Bloomingdale, Illinois, was wonderful! The store is pleasant. The butcher actually asked me what I was looking for and helped me. The clerk who checked me out was talkative and engaging. Honestly, shopping at this Dominick’s was almost relaxing. Wow, I can’t believe I said that about grocery shopping!
Just for U is a new program with Dominick’s. Chicago is only the second market to get it. Right after Hawaii!
I want you to give this program a shot! Register for the Just for You program. Pick out your coupons and shop! To make it even easier, I am giving away 6 gift cards of $25 each!
