Deals...Part 2

Last night we went to the grocery store. I'm so sad that Albertson's is closing...but the one on 1600 North in Orem told me that they will be open until after the holidays. So, awhile ago, I talked about my new love for coupons HERE. The reason I decided to coupon was to build up my food supply...but I'm learning how to save lots of money.

Here's my list from Albertson's last night.
6 Brownie Mixes
6 Cake Mixes
4 Frostings
4 Skippy Peanut Butter
4 Ragu Spaghetti Sauce
1 Crisco Spray
10 Boxes Pop Secret Popcorn
1 Progresso Chicken Broth
2 2 Liters of Diet Coke
20 Can Beechnut Baby Food
1 Huggies Baby Wipes
1 Huge Turkey

I spent $48.44. I saved $18.99 on the Turkey (If you spent over $25 you got the Turkey for $0.38 a pound. I don't know if that's a great deal....it's seemed great to me.) I got the popcorn for $0.50 a box. I was picking up the Baby Wipes for someone else and they were $5.50. I got a $5.00 coupon (catalina) to use on my next purchase. SOOOO I had a grand savings of $106.42!!

I learned how to do this from Cassie. She's my "friend" on facebook and also I went to school with her. (Thanks Cassie!) I'm happy to show anyone what I do. Just let me know. I'm still learning. It takes LOTS of time! I'm sure I'll keep getting faster...it just takes time.

Oh, I almost forgot. I got a rain check. It you buy one Sara Lee pie for $6.50ish you get another pie and two Bryers Ice Creams for free! That sale ends today (11-17-09), and they are out of Pies, but if you go down there and ask you can get a rain check too. OH, AND! There's not a limit, I got two rain checks...that means 4 pies and 4 ice creams. Plus, if you call me I'll tell you where you can find a Sara Lee coupon that will save you $0.75.

That's it. Happy Shopping!
