I'm trying to remember, but during the Drew era, somewhere maybe one or two years ago, a woman was on there, and there was some pricing game involving groceries where you couldn't go over and buy a certain amount. She was already close to the limit, and bought five packs of Oreos and was incredibly over. I don't remember the specific date, or the name of the pricing game, but could some top men please help me out?

I didn't see this particular episode, but you seem to be describing "Grocery Game", where you have to purchase an amount of groceries that total between $20 and $21. You win if the total is $20.00 to $20.99, but lose if it is $21 or over. You play by picking one of five items, and saying how many of the item you wish to buy (for example, you opt to buy three of one item, its price is revealed to be $3.99, so your running total is $11.97, and you now must buy between $8.03 and $9.02 more to win the game without going over).

But again, I didn't see the episode, so I'm afraid I can't help with the date.

All I know is that is was the Drew Carey era, and it was sometime between 2009 and 2010, so that'll save somebody some time.
