20 dish soaps weren’t enough?!

27 06 2011

Ya that’s right, I went back for more dish soap (I have a family of 7, we go through A LOT of dishes!).. and a few other awesome deals!

 (sorry for the not so quality picture, I put all the stuff away before I realized the picture didn’t turn out so good, and I really didn’t want to get everything back out again!)

So I went back to Albertsons, did 2 more transactions for the Ajax dish soap= FREE!!

Then I also did these transactions-

Buy 4 Nature Valley Thins $2.50 ($10.00)
Use (4) $.75/1 Nature Valley Granola Thins coupon from 6/26 SS Insert
Use (3) Albertsons Doubles (-$2.25)
Pay $4.75, get $2 Catalina, $5 Catalina & Free milk Catalina
FREE +$2.25 Money Maker and Free Milk!!!

Buy 4 Fiber One Brownies $2.50 ($12.50)
Use (4) $.75/1 Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownie
Use (3) Albertsons Doubles (-$2.25)
Pay $4.75, get $2 Catalina & $5 Catalina
FREE +$2.25 Money Maker (thats the best deal, I only had 3 MFR coupons, so I got $4 money maker, still a great deal!)

Then we went to Walgreens to see what we could find!

Dove Men’s Bar Soap, 6pk 3/$18
Buy 3, Receive $6.00 RR
Use (3) $4.00 Dove Men’s Care Bar Soap from RP 6/26
Pay: $6.00, Receive $6.00 RR
Final Price: FREE! (even if the price isn’t advertised at your store, have the cashier double check for you, because our’s didn’t have a sale tag, but it rang up at the sale price!)

Carefree Liners, 16-60 Count, $1.99
Use $3/2 Walgreens Coupon July Booklet
And (2) $0.50/1 Carefree 6/26 SS (we found some in the store too!)
or (2) $0.50/1 Carefree
or (1) $1/1 Carefree 5/8 SS
Final Price: FREE!

Pringles Super Stack, $1.50
Buy 4, Receive $2 RR
$1/3 Pringles Super Stack 6/26 or 5/22 RP
Pay: $5, Receive $2 RR
Final Price: $0.75 each when you buy 4  (yes, Devin has already gotten into the chips!)

So at the end of all this, I had to spend $20.50, but after all the Catalinas I got back, I got paid $1.50 for all this stuff. Please feel free to check my math, confession- I suck at math. And yes, I do have a calculator with me pretty much at all times, her name is TJ 🙂

 

 





Good Morning Albertsons!

26 06 2011

As TJ mentioned, we went to Albertsons in the morning, as in 7am!! That is pretty extreme for us! Usually we are out shopping at midnight! It was quite the adventure, but it was worth it! Here’s all my transactions-

Trans #1- 6 Ajax dishsoap= FREE!

Trans #2- 6 Ajax dishsoap=FREE!

Trans #3-6 Ajax dishsoap=FREE!

Trans #4-10 vitamin waters + 5 free powerade, 2 packs of pork chops and 2 packs of bacon=$11.89

Trans #5- 2 Ajax dish soap & 2 Jamba juice smoothies =$1.00

Trans #6-4 Danimals yogurts, gallon of milk, and oreos=$1.99

Trans #7- 5 Smart waters, 5 Vitamin waters + 5 free powerades= $1.00

Total spent= $15.88!!!

*The meat was an unplanned purchase, check your meat department! We found bacon marked down to $1.99 (normally $6.99) and the pork chops were managers special, so there was a $2.00 off coupon on them, making them about half off!*

 

*Always feel free to ask any questions! =)





JD’s Albertson’s Doubler Trip List!

25 06 2011

I am getting a few things that TJ is getting so I won’t repost those things!

But I am also getting ajax dish soap for free!! Here’s how–

Save $1 on any TWO Dynamo, Ajax, Fab or Niagara products (I’m sorry but I have no idea what insert this is from, I bought them off of eBay!)

With Albertsons doubles I can get any bottle of ajax that is under $2 for FREE!!!

I am also going to do the yogurt deal like TJ is

Danimals Crush Cup 4pk or Danimals Drinkables or Coolision or Dan-o-nino, 6pk  $2
Buy 4, Save $4 on Milk Instantly

Buy 4 ($8)
Buy 1 Gallon of milk
Save $4 on Milk Instantly (-$4)
Use (4) $1/1 Dannon Danimals Product 6/5 SS Insert
or (4) $1/1 Dannon Dan-o-nino Dairy Snacks 6/5 SS Insert
Use (3) Albertsons doubles (-$3)
$1 after coupons & doubles + FREE Milk

but I also have a Save $1 when you buy 1 package of Nabisco cookies (40z-26oz) AND one gallon of milk (this coupon was in Albertsons). Oreo’s are on sale this week for $1.99 so they will be $.99 cents after this coupon!

*So all in all I have about 9-10 transactions to do! If you aren’t familiar with Albertson’s doubles policy, you can use 3 doubles in one transaction, and do 3 transactions in a row. So I plan on doing my 3 transactions, putting my stuff in the car and going back for more! I just want to point out it’s not like the show AT ALL! Doing that many transactions may feel like a lot of work, but hello, it’s free stuff- stuff that I would have to purchase anyways!*





Update to Fred Meyer Pantene deal!

24 06 2011

Read original post here

I went to FM today to try out the Pantene deal and it worked perfectly! Gotta love when that happens!

Transaction #1

2 pantene hair products- used 3/$10 store coupon + $3/2 manufactorer coupon

Total oop was $3.67 + a $3 cat printed out

Transaction #2

2 pantene products used same coupons + $3 cat= $.67 oop and another $3cat printed out!! Woohoo I just love when we can roll catalinas! =)

I don’t really know how FM feels about us doing multiple transactions in a row, so I am just doing one transaction, going back for more product, then doing another transaction and so on!

Happy Savings!





Free orange chicken!

23 06 2011

If you go and ‘like’ Panda Express on Facebook, you can print a coupon for a free serving of orange chicken, good only on June 24th after 9pm!





Extreme? No! Awesome? Yes!

21 06 2011

Soo I am getting together my FM list and coupons so I figured I would walk you guys through how I organize a shopping adventure!

This week FM has an in store coupon for Pantene hair care products 3/$10, also in SS 6/19 there is MFR q for $3/2 Pantene products.. sooo just because the ad says 3 for $10, you don’t have to buy 3 to get this price. They will come out to $3.33 a piece.

So here’s the realistic side of couponing, the instore coupon limits 3 per transaction, I have 12 MFR q’s so I’ll be doing 12
transactions at FM this week. Sounds like a lot, but they are short, 2 item transactions.

Here’s the math-

2 X 3.33= 6.66-3=3.66$ not bad for 3 products of Pantene right?! Here’s the best part! FM is printing a catalina for $3 oyno for each 2 Pantene products you buy.. So my first transaction I will spend $3.66, but I’ll be getting $3 back. Some stores you can roll this $3 cat into the next order. I’ve heard you can do this at FM, so I am going to try. So transaction #2, I’ll give the cashier my $3 cat, and .66cents in change and hold my breath while I wait to see if another $3 cat prints out! If it does, I’ll keep rolling my cats onto each next order! If it doesn’t I’ll just use it for something else I need.. like mascara!

There is also a store coupon Purchase $10 or more of Cover girl cosmetics and get free mascara.. I need mascara and have been waiting for a good deal to buy it. I haven’t been able to find any matchups for this deal on other blogs so here’s where the binder organization system comes in handy, I just have to flip to

Ok so no covergirl coupons in there.. so I’ve kinda been slacking on clipping coupons and have started stacking in a pile filing my inserts! So here’s why coupon data bases are wonderful, I just searched and found this one http://thefrugalfind.com/coupon-database/  typed in cover girl and discovered I have coupons for other products, yay!! (They are from P&G 6/5 insert) Now I have all my coupons clipped and I’ll  be off to Freddies tomorrow to do transaction #1!!
