When we got back from our vacation there were no hot deals anywhere so I really had to dig deep to find something to satisfy my crave to save. I read that KMart was doubling coupons all week (they normally double on Wednesday and Saturday) and I know that Walmart matches this. So, my husband was heading to Walmart for some garden stuff and I asked him if he was going to spend at least $25 (which is the deal with KMart you have to spend $25 pre-coupon) and he said yes. So, needing milk, I sent him down there with 5 milk coupons to double for me and we got 5 gallons of milk for 94-cents each.
Paul’s got a great Under $1 list for Walmart on his site which is where I found out about these 97-cent Cutter citronella candles to match with the $1-off coupon that I had printed out.
8 candles plus overage – I made 24-cents on these.
And then this little gem I found on my own. There was a Miracle Gro giveaway on Facebook where they were going to send you a sample of something. I guess they ran out of that, and instead sent you an e-mail with a $3-off coupon.
I took that coupon down to the Walmart and got 6 big bags of potting soil for 97-cents each.
Also while I was gone, the samples that I register for online and on Facebook came rolling in, and some of them came with coupons. These items I received FREE coupons for.
Pepsi had a coupon book in the Sunday newspaper that had a free coupon for these new Starbucks Refreshers. They sound tasty – but then again, everything tastes better when it’s free
Fred Meyer is not a store that I shop. I find them to be too expensive, but I reckon people say the same thing about Albertsons. You just have to know when to shop them and how their sales cycles run. And I don’t follow Fred Meyer at all. However, I do remember from last summer that they were the only store around that carried these Snapware pieces and when I was going through my coupons, I saw a $2-off coupon. So my daughter and I went down there and got these for $1.69 each, and then they took $2 off which gave me overage that I didn’t know they were going to give me, so we grabbed 3 Kit Kats at the register and got all this on the free.
They also had their big annual Founder’s Day sale and had bakeware buy one, get 1 free. Fred Meyer is a store like Albertsons and Walgreens that will let you use 2 coupons on a BOGO. So these Pyrex items were $4.99 each, buy 1 get 1 free = $4.99 for 2. And then I used (2) $1-off coupons which made each of these items $1.50. On top of that, they had Tillamook cheese which is normally $7.99 on sale for $3.99 with an in-store coupon and then I used an internet printable coupon for another $1 off which made these 2-pound blocks of cheese only $2.99.
Another store I don’t shop is Winco. Just too crowded, and they don’t have a lot of variety in items (just my opinion). However, I had been looking all over for these Big Cup of Noodles and heard that Winco carried them. The coupon was for $1-off-3. They were 46-cents each which made them 13-cents each after coupons. These are great after school snacks for the kids, and my husband will take them to work sometimes. We must have gotten these coupons twice because I had 22 coupons x 3 per coupon = 66 of them. My son was so excited wheeling around the cases on the hand truck.
And last but not least, my Amazon groceries. I have mentioned Swagbucks to y’all before and if you haven’t signed up yet, I really don’t know what you’re waiting for. I earn a $5 Amazon card every week and I use those to buy groceries. Swagbucks is just like Google where you do your internet searches there, and earn Swagbucks along the way. I also print out my coupons.com coupons there and make 10 Swagbucks for every coupon I redeem. And I redeem a lotttt of coupons Every time you hit 450 Swagbucks, you cash in for a $5 Amazon card. Free food for something I would be doing all the time anyway? Yes, please!
