Spent $105.21

Saved $209.88

total value: $315.09

67% savings

This required a lot of time clipping and perusing my coupon stash and the internet.   My two favorite websites for savings are &  Most of today’s info came from has THE BEST LIST hands down, however it doesn’t come out until Friday noon.  The sale started on Wednesday.  If I had waited until Friday evening most of the FREE of SUPER CHEAP stuff would have been gone.  Yes, I could get a raincheck (RC) but that doesn’t mean I will save as much.  The bulk of today’s savings came b/c of it being SUPER DOUBLES…that means that Qn’s up to $`1.98 will DOUBLE.  So instead of saving $1.  I save $2.00; if it was a Qn for $1.50 now I saved $3.00.  That means the savings add up fast.  I was able to get lots of big items for far cheaper than I normally pay at Sam’s or Aldi.  I bought each baby of Puppy Chow for $5.99 for ~20lbs.  I think I will buy more when I go later in week!


The above items were free after the sale price and Qn.  I have bought Quaker Rice cakes for free b/4.  That Qn was only for $.75, so $1.50 after it doubles.  The rice cakes go on sale for $1.50 each.   My goal this week was to use as many higher dollar Qn –Qn over $1.  that don’t normally double.  With that being said, these are GREAT occasional snacks for Ethan, so since we are out, I went ahead and bought them today.  I don’t know when the sale will run again.  They might not be on sale next week or in two weeks when I need them.  One thing I have really been able to do is get further away from buying items merely out of need.  The bulk of my weekly shopping is b/c it is the best price, it is something we would use, or it was free.   Of course I still have to buy milk, bread, eggs and fresh produce on an as needed basis, but that is about it!  When I am making my menu I look at what I already have on hand and occasionally I have to add a few items to the weekly list to cook certain dishes.

Free Food or less than $1.00

Here is a brief list of items that I bought for free or less than a $1.!

2 packs stride gum

10 boxes of barrilla pasta: sale was buy 2 @ $1.50 each get 3 free, final price for each was $.60 I think I will buy more when I go back later int he week.  This was a GREAT price!

Two boxes Kelloggs Smart Start Cereal $.09 each!!!!

7 boxes Rasin Bran/Raisin Bran Extra$.25-$.40 each

11 cans Progresso Soup @ ~$.45 each

Dole Pinapple 8oz $.16 each

Ken’s marinade $.76 Each

6-Borden Cheese @ $.21 each

6 Beachnut Stage 3 @ $.33. each

Beachnut crackers @ $.34 each

(don’t normally buy these but will be looking for more later in week!)

Most of the yogurt was between $.50-$.75 each

I am sure I missed a few things, but as you can see most of my orders were less than a dollar.  The remainder were high dollar items that we gotten for much less.

2 Hormel Pork Tenderloin @ $2.49 for 27 oz

this was a BOGO + Qn…found another  Qn will look for another one!

Gorton Fish Fillets(not my favorite, but easy meal!)

2 for $5.00, once again that was a BOGO + Qn

Quilted Northern 9 MEGA ROLL= 24 regular roll! $3.99

Plumrose bacon $1.99 (have gotten bacon cheaper, but only buy $.50 -$.75..this is a situation where I don’t want to end up passing up an okay price  and then need bacon b/4 it is at its rock bottom price.

Wholly Gaucomole Salsa flavor or something…bought this last month, it is the best Gaucomole EVER.  We all loved it…if I had bought the smaller plain only package it would have been free, but I still only paid $1.99 and talk about a great addition to all of the tortillas I scored last week 🙂

I am sure I have forgotten a few deals, there were plenty of great buys.  I am on my way to clip more Qn so I can go again tonight!

Stay tuned for more!!
