the freezer is full

February 28th, 2011 at 11:56 am

and March is national frozen food month, so there will be really good deals on frozen stuff. I need to start eating out of the freezer to make some room.

Yesterday Safeway had a really good deal on frozen food. I spent $1.39 for $17 worth of food. I saved 94%
Stacking the deals is what really makes the price go down.

First layer is the sale. Stouffers and Lean Cuisine are on sale for $2/each

Next Layer is the store deal. Buy 5 Stouffer's or Lean Cuisines and get 2 Dreyers smoothies for free.

Next Layer is the store coupon. Buy $15 in frozen foods and get $5 off. The free Dreyers count towards the $15.

Next Layer is manufacture's coupons. 4 $1 off Stouffer's and 1 $1.10 on 2 Lean Cuisines

Last Layer is the e-coupons. Some stores take both e-coupons and paper coupons. Your stores may have different rules. $1 on 2 Lean Cuisines e-coupon.

8.00 - 4 Stouffers individual meals
4.00 - 2 Lean Cuisine
3.00 - 2 Dryers smoothies

I finished reading the library book Dragon Harper by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey. Sci/Fi - very good.
