~ Saturday Night Savings ~

At Safeway I purchased:

18 ct. eggs
1 gallon milk
1 32-oz Coffee Mate
1 12-pkg Nabisco cookies
3 boxes Kleenex ($.75 ea on clearance - $.50 coupon doubled = $.41 a box)
Tin of butter cookies - $1.25 clearance
Large box of taquitos
4 boxes Nature Valley Granola bars (4/$6.00 before coupons)
4 boxes Trix (with coupons and sale these were $.49 a box)

Total Spent: $19.00
Got Back: $2.50 Catalina for buying granola bars


At Walgreens I purchased:

2 6 oz. boxes Chips Ahoy
8 cans Progresso soup
2 boxes Nutri-Grain bars
3 6 oz. bottles NyQuil
1 8 oz. bottle Theraflu
2 10-ct pkgs DayQuil
2 boxes Puffs tissue

Total Spent: $19.92
Got Back: $2.00 Catalina for buying Chips Ahoy

I did three transactions at Walgreens. They have a Register Reward deal running all month for Vicks products. Spend $20.00 and get a $10.00 RR. I had coupons for $1.50 off each Vicks product and I had coupons for a free box of Puffs for every 2 Vicks I bought.

So....I purchased $20 worth of Vicks and then used my $10.00 RR to buy the soup. The soup also had a RR (spend $10.00 and get a $3.00 RR). I used the $3.00 RR from the soup to buy the Nutri-Grain bars (on sale 2/$5.00) which had a $2.00 RR.

I also purchased two boxes of the Chips Ahoy for $.99 each. That generated a $2.00 RR.

We are not a house full of sickies (at least physically), but these kinds of medicines are good to have on hand. I always check expiration dates and buy what has the longest shelf life.


At Albertsons I purchased:

4 pkgs Green Giant vegetables
1 box toaster strudel
2 boxes Cocoa Puffs
5 boxes fruit snacks
3 pkgs allergy/cold medication
2 boxes DiGiorno pizza

Total Spent: $7.97

Got Back: $8.50 in Catalinas ($5.00 for spending $20.00 on General Mills items and $3.50 for buying five fruit snacks - kind of a deal within a deal, since the fruit snacks counted toward my $20.00 purchase too).

Grand Total Spent: $46.89

Grand Total in Catalinas/RR received: $13.00

Total Out of Pocket: $33.89 kept me off the streets!
