My Name is frugalsuz and I am a Pasta-holic

ShopRite

  • 6 boxes Ziploc EZ zipper bags $1.79 each, used six $0.75 coupons (9/14 SS) = $0.29 each (bought 4 in one transaction, two in another - SR only doubles 4 of the same coupon in a transaction)
  • 10 boxes Ronzoni pasta $0.55 each
  • 2 Cabot cheddar cheeses (yum!) two for $5
  • 2 Friendship sour creams two for $3, used $1 off 2 coupon (9/21 paper) = $2
  • Thomas toasting bread $1.99
  • Total was $16.91 after $0.15 bag discount

Stop n Shop

saphira (one of the fellow Jersey gals from the pound) clued me in to this awesome deal - thanks houndfriend!

  • 2 L'Oreal Vive shampoos $3.99 each, BOGO sale and used BOGO coupon and $1 coupon = $1 profit
  • 2 Glade Wisp Flameless Candles $9.99 each, used BOGO coupon and got back two $3 catalinas plus I'll submit for Try Me Free rebate $9.99 (9/7 SS) = $6 profit
  • 4 Glade Gel Warmers $1.79 each, used two BOGO coupons (or 9/14 SS) and got back $2 catalina for each ($8 total) = $4.42 profit

The deal on the gel warmers is supposed to be good until 10/2 and if you use the self-checkout, the BOGO coupons scan by themselves and you don't need the cashiers to enter in the price manually. If you have a Kroger by you, its supposed to work at this store as well.

Those are great deals! I wish I had more opportunities to get double coupons around here. I'm out of ziplock gallon bags and I'm on the hunt.

do you know if the catalinas from stop and shop will roll if you buy the same product?

Queen,
I'm not quite sure, I haven't tried that yet. I read on HCW that in order to use a $2 catalina, you'd have to buy an item that costs at least $2. Since the gel warmers are $1.79 each, it might work if you buy several at one time, but I'm not quite sure. I'm going to give this a try probably on Saturday.
