Ziploc Zania

As you can see, I went a little nuts today. :) A&P
  • 6 Ziploc containers $2 each (shelf price $3.39 each), used four $0.55 coupons (7/26 SS) and one $1.50 off 2 coupon (7/26 or 8/9 SS), got back $10 catalina (for spending $20 - based on shelf prices) = $3.90 profit
  • A&P bag $0.99
  • Used $3.50 catalina, total was $4.25 - paid using gift card. I had planned on using a second $3.50 cat but it beeped and they say one per transaction or something so I wasn't able to use it

Second trip

  • 6 Ziploc containers $2 each (shelf price $3.39 each), used two $0.55 coupons (7/26 SS) and two $1.50 off 2 coupons (7/26 or 8/9 SS), got back $10 catalina (for spending $20 - based on shelf prices) = $3.20 profit
  • Scotch mailer $0.79
  • Used $3.50 catalina, total was $4.83, again I had planned on using another cat. I did these transactions back to back, so I didn't have time to adjust my plan

Third trip

  • 6 Ziploc containers $2 each (shelf price $3.39 each), used three $1.50 off 2 coupons (7/26 or 8/9 SS), got back $10 catalina (for spending $20 - based on shelf prices) = $2.50 profit
  • Kraft Mac & Cheese crackers $1.99, will submit for Try Me Free rebate = FREE
  • Used $8 catalina, total was $2.13

Final Trip

  • 6 Ziploc containers $2 each (shelf price $3.39 each), used three $1.50 off 2 coupons (7/26 or 8/9 SS), got back $10 catalina (for spending $20 - based on shelf prices) = $2.50 profit
  • A&P bag $0.99
  • 3 Rayovac batteries $0.99 each, used three $1 coupons (6/21 SS) = $0.04 profit
  • Used $8 catalina, total was $1.48

One of my $10 catalinas printed without a barcode. Its not faded or partially printed. Its missing! Isn't that odd? I just noticed so I'll have to stop back in the store tomorrow.

Oh nice! I love those Ziploc containers. They come in very handy.

You're never going to have to wash tupperware again! Do you use those containers for scrapbook stuff? I've got a pretty wide variety of ziploc containers holding all my quilting things. That's probably why we never seem to have enough for leftovers....

Jamie,
Don't they?

Queen,
I never thought to use them for that, that's such a great idea!

I figured out this deal when the baggies were OOS. I walked by and saw 2 for 4 and saw the buy $20 get $10 CAT. They were all 3.39 (got big and small and medium). But I didn't get the CAT. But the lady did give me $10 cash...so I'm using that as my catalina :)
