My Pantry is FULL!

Today was all about food! Here's how it went:

Petsmart
  • 6 cans Mighty Dog food (to donate) $0.59 each, used 5 freebie coupons (8/10 SS) = FREE
  • Purina cat treats $1.69, used freebie coupon (8/3 RP) = FREE
  • Nutro cat food $8.99, used freebie coupon I got in the mail from doing previous rebate = FREE
  • The cashier was being a pain and put the Mighty Dog's in as the regular price ($0.62 each) instead of sale price, so he wouldn't take my 6th coupon. Sigh. My total was $1.44 ($1 tax). Not bad for all this pet food!
CVS - bought 6 papers, $12, used $11.58 ECB and paid $0.42 cash

Rite Aid - best score was all those coupon booklets! They had a huge stack in my store so I lightened their load considerably. Now I have oodles of $5 Be Fine coupons to use before the end of the week! I wonder how many I can put to good use...
  • Be Fine single pack $1.99, used $5 Be Fine coupon from booklet = $3.01 profit
  • Snickers bar $0.85
  • 2 Hellmann's mayo $1.99 each, used $1 off 2 coupon (8/17 RP) = $2.98 (counts towards SCR #133, spend $15 on Unilever food, get $5 SCR)
  • Total was $1.02

DBF bought:

  • Be Fine single pack $1.99, used $5 Be Fine coupon from booklet = $3.01 profit
  • 6 Knorr sides $0.99 each, used three $0.75 off 2 coupons (8/17 RP) = $3.69 (counts towards SCR #133, spend $15 on Unilever food, get $5 SCR)
  • Total was $0.82

2nd Transaction - putting the Be Fine Q to good use! Went back to above store to do another Be Fine deal and the very same cashier from the morning wouldn't accept the very same Be Fine coupon she accepted in the morning without a problem. Ugh, so off to another store we went:

  • Be Fine single pack $1.99, used $5 Be Fine coupon from booklet = $3.01 profit
  • Crest toothpaste $2.99, used $1 coupon (8/3 P&G) and will get back $2.99 SCR #75 = $1 profit
  • 2 Knorr side dishes $0.99 each, used $0.75 off 2 coupon (8/17 RP) = $1.23 (counts towards SCR #133, spend $15 on Unilever food, get $5 SCR)
  • Total was $0.56

DBF bought:

  • Be Fine single pack $1.99, used $5 Be Fine coupon from booklet = $3.01 profit
  • Crest toothpaste $2.99, used $1 coupon (8/3 P&G) and will get back $2.99 SCR #75 = $1 profit (second rebate on DBF's name)
  • Snickers bar $0.85
  • Total was $0.24

Walgreens - *Note - Pantene Expressions/Restoratives are NOT part of the 2 for $8 sale this week. The sale is for 12.6 oz bottles - these bottles are 13 oz. Darn!

  • 6 Skippy PB's $10, used three $1 off 2 coupons (8/17 RP) = $7 and got back $4 RR
  • 2 Bertolli dinners $5.99 each, used two $1.50 coupons (7/13 RP) = $8.98 and got back $5 RR
  • 5 bubble mailers $0.39 each w/circular coupon = $1.95
  • 2 Red Baron pizzas $5
  • Coupons used: four $5 RR's from previous week's Kellogg's deal, three Skippy Q's and two Bertolli Q's
  • Total was $3.07

A&P - thanks Heather for pointing out that today's Cheerios Q's weren't good on the regular Cheerios. I was able to adjust my deal before going out hounding. :)

  • 4 Nature Valley granola bars 4 for $6, used four $0.50 coupons (8/10 GM double to $1) = $2
  • 4 Chex Mix 2 for $3, used four $0.50 coupons (8/10 GM double to $1) = $2
  • 2 Yoplait Trix 2 for $5, used $0.75 off 2 coupon (8/10 GM double to $1.50) = $3.50
  • 3 Betty Crocker cookie mixes 3 for $5, used three $0.40 coupons (8/10 GM double to $0.80) = $2.60
  • 3 Betty Crocker potatoes $1 each = $3
  • 3 Betty Crocker Warm Delights 3 for $5, used three $0.50 coupons (7/13 SS, double to $1) = $2
  • 12 packets of Kool Aid singles $0.12 each = $1.50 - because I bought these, I was able to use the freebie coupons from the All You magazine to get the following items for free: 2 packages Oscar Mayer hot dogs ($4.49 each), Wheat Thins $3.79 and Crystal Lite $3.69
  • Total was $15.32 and I got back $8 in rewards. My subtotal before card savings and coupons was $75.23 - that's a savings of 60!

At my store, the restoratives/expressions did ring up 2/$8. I did not receive a RR, but because I had two $1 off 1 Pantene coupons. I was able to get them for $6 and do the 5.99 ESR. HTH

How can you purchase the kool aid with the coupon from ALL YOU because it says excluding single serve. Is that not considered single serve? I am confused. HELP

mellowyellow - that threw me at first too, but the Kool Aid packages I bought are not single serve. They actually make something like 8 servings per package. Single serve refers to those tubes of Crystal Lite (for example) that you just mix into your water bottle. :)
