Kraft Shredded Cheese Buy 2 Get 3 Free—$3.79 x 2= $7.58  – 5 x $1 Q ($5.00)= $2.58 for 5 packs or $.52 each!!!

***NOTE*** I am not sure that I should have been able to use 5 Kraft coupons per transaction or not, but the cashier didn’t have any problems scanning them.  Lowe’s coupon policy said 4 LIKE coupons and I was using 5 per transaction…so this is one of those things that might not work every time.  And that is okay, I had went in planning to use 4 per transaction, but the cashier took all 5!

*Oscar Mayer Beef Hotdogs BOGO @ $5.19 x2= $10.38 – 4x $1off Q ($4.00)= $6.38 for 4 packs BEEF hotdogs or $1.60 each

Yeah… I know I can get other hotdogs for cheaper, but generally the ALL BEEF have fewer nitrates added than the other kind.  I get really bad migraine headaches and the preservatives can be a trigger.  I already limit how often we eat hotdogs b/c of the lack of nutritional value, but they seem to show up a lot during the summer! So I at least want to serve the best I can.  My preferred brand is Hebrew National, but I haven’t seen many Q out that make them affordable.
