This was a quick trip we needed milk, so I of course went to HT 🙂
I picked up a few things that were on sale. I order coupons for Dole mandarin oranges & tropical fruit so I have been trying to pick them up every time I go in. The CS person wasn’t to thrilled about giving me a Rain Check for the mandarin oranges since they weren’t in the flier. But in the end I was really nice and point out they had been out of stock most of the last week and I couldn’t guarantee they would have any more next time I come back.
The spaghetti is BOGO Free, and the lasagna was buy 3/ save $1.oo.
I had a Q$2/ off 5 mueller items so it worked out to be $1.40 for each lasagna. This is a good price since I never really see lasagna noodles on sale.
*Chock full o’ nuts coffee- Columbian $1.00
*Hellman’s mayo $1.00 after BOGO & IQ
*Cheese Nips $.75 each
(I know if I had bought them during Super doubles they would have been FREE…I feel so guilty & shameful!!!)
*Muir Glen Tomato paste $.05 – I had a IQ for $.75 off any product!
*Dole tropical fruit $.50 a can
Well, sorry only 1 of the m&m’s was free, the other was $.39!!!
*Gain PG 8-29-10 $1. off 1
*Gain home mailer for 1 free 11 oz bottle
This is where I used to mess up with using coupons. I would have used that $1. off coupon to buy the larger bottle. Yes, I would still save $1, but it wouldn’t be free. What I have discovered is that by frequently buying the smaller items I pay less. B/c I get several newspaper inserts I can simple buy more items-use more coupons to get the amount I need. Of course I would use the larger bottle at $.69, but by using 2 coupons I got 2 small bottles for FREE.
This works over and over again with couponing. That is how I get diapers so cheap and salad dressing and yogurt and well…the list could go on!
FREE is FREE (well, except for tax!)
