57% saved on groceries

July 13th, 2008 at 11:46 am

I had a great grocery shop this morning. According to the receipt I saved 57%. 36.47 in coupons and 17.18 from the sales.

I got a $1.00 catalina coupon good on anything on my next order and I will send in a rebate for $1.99 saving another $3.99

First deal was the Proctor and Gamble one. If you bought 3 participating products you get $3 off. I had 2 coupons for BOGO on Always 28 ct. It was on sale for $5.00 each. I bought 4 for $20 less $10 for the BOBO coupons less $3 for the promotion meaning I spent $7 for the 4 or $1.75 each. SCORE!

Next deal was Planter's peanuts. I had 3 coupons for $3 off of Planters when you buy 3 Nabisco, Oscar Meyer or Kraft products.

First peanut deal. 12 oz Planters cocktail peanuts cost $3.19

I had 2 coupons for .50 off Oscar Meyer hotdogs. They were on sale for $1.00 the coupons were doubled so free. I bought 1 pkg lemonade Kookaid for .21 cents.

So 2 packages hotdogs - Free
1 package Koolaid - .21
1 can peanuts - .19
Total cost - .40

Second peanut deal

3 packages koolaid at .21 each
1 can peanuts .19 after coupon
Total - .82

Third peanut deal

I had a coupon for free 12 oz Kraft cheese slices when you buy 3 planter, kraft etc products. So combined with deal #1 and #2 the cheese was free and contributed towards the 3 products needed to get the #3.00 off peanuts coupons. I added 2 packages Koolaid to make 3 products.

12 oz Kraft cheese $2.99 - Free after coupon
2 packages Koolaid - .21 each
1 can peanutes .19 after coupons
Total - .61

Total of all 3 peanut deals

3 12 oz cans of peanuts
1 12 oz package of Kraft cheese slices
2 8 ct pacages Oscar Meyer hotdogs
6 packages Koolaid
Total cost - 1.83

I had 2 .50 coupons on Hawaian Sweet bread which I love. At the deli they sell 4 packs for $1.00 after the coupons was doubled I got 2 packages for free.

Rice a Roni Natures Way was on sale for $1.05 after a .50 cent coupon that was doubled cost was .05 cents.

Excedrin back and body has FAR which I got and will sent in. The $1 Catalina coupons I got that can be used on anything was for purchasing this.

Hot dog buns were in the clearance section for .49 cents. I got 1 package.

4 pack of Cottonelle TP was on sale for .99 I had a .25 coupon so only .49 cents after it was doubled.

As I was walking out the store I got a free Sunday paper $1.25 with more coupons Smile

The peanuts go in my stash for my brothers xmas presents.

I also got trial size cheerios and Gillette body spray in the mail this week for samples. And I got the first of the two American Express Spring Fling $25 gift cards for Borders/Best Buy in the mail.

Very good morning.

Only 3 weeks left to work before I retire now. I can't wait. This last week was horrible. So much stupidity, so many people screwing up my test caes and then asking me to fix them. BLEAGH

I finished reading the library book Against the Tide by John Ringo. Sci/Fi very good

I finished reading the library book Tail Spin by Catherine Coulter. Romance/Mystery very good

I finished reading the library book Fearless Fourteen. Mystery. I liked this but I didn't think it was as good or as funny as many of the others in this series.

I finished reading The Tangled Web by Anne Bishop. Sci/Fi. Excellent. I love these books by this author. Very well written and the characters make you care about each of them a lot.

    Wow! That was good! I need to get on the coupon wagon for sure. One thing: Proctor and Gamble is like THE leading company in animal research. Unfortinately they make alot of stuff. I dont know if it matters to you, but wanted to just let you know.

    Way to go! And just let it roll off you for those 3 weeks. My advice: first act of your retirement is to change your home phone number. Wicked, I know, but I wouldn't want to get any of those emergency calls from your former place of work. Big Grin Oh yes, and let us know at some point what you all were testing so we can make plans of our own. Big Grin
