I went to King Soopers to get a few more free things for the food pantry this morning and to get more eggs and tuna for me. I got 3 doz eggs, 4 pouches of tuna, 3 boxes of Ronzoni pasta, 2 tubes colgate toothpaste, 1 reach toothbrush, 1 reach floss and 2 colgate wisps. After coupons I paid $3.88. I used $11.75 in coupons. Everything except the eggs and tuna will go to the food pantry.

Next I went to Safeway and got $78 worth of groceries for free. This is a little complicated. Safeway has a deal this month when you transfer 6 prescriptions you get $60 in gift cards. I had already got one of the $30 gift cards and I transfered my 6th prescription today and got another $30 gift card. I spent $5.60 on the prescription. I also got a coupon for 10% off my entire grocery order, after safeway coupons, for transferring the prescription.

Safeway has a deal this week when you buy a $100 Mastercard you get a coupon for $10 off your next order. So I spent $105.95 for the card, (paid with a credit card that gives me 1% back) and got my $10 coupon. It's like buying money with the $10 coupon I am ahead $4.05. I can use the MC anywhere.

Safeway sent out a bunch of coupons last week. One was the $10/$50 coupon that I used at King Soopers to get my free salmon. They also had a $4 off 4 lbs of frozen chicken breasts, and several free item coupons. The free item coupons were salsa, marinade, salad dressing, frozen vegetables, rice and Mission tortillas. I got all of those for free, plus 10% off the price, which was used to cover other items. I had a coupon to make a travel size of Tide free and a Pure Protein bar free. And I had a coupon for $3 off $10 in produce, plus several other miscellaneous coupons.

In all I used $41.25 in coupons, including the $10 off coupon from the MC purchase and $5.95 from the 10% discount and $26.51 on the $30 gift card I got from the pharmacy.

I got the following items. FP = food pantry. SW = Safeway.

SW ceasar salad dressing - Free - FP
SW marinade - Free - FP
SW salsa - Free
SW brown rice - Free - FP
Mission low carb tortillas - free
2 big rolls Viva paper towels - .48/each
SW frozen green beans - Free
Travel size Tide - Free
4 boxes Atkins bars - 3.47/each
Pure Protein bar - Free - FP
4 lb frozen chicken breasts, boneless/skinless - 5.19
2 lb frozen tilapia fillets - 7.19
Gortons fish fillets - 1.25
1 lb deli turkey meat - 5.43
4 stalks celery - .28
1 onion - .73
2 bags Fresh express lettuce - BOGO - 2.29
3 bags shredded cabbage - 3.57
1 garlic - .50

I got quite a bit of meat and produce for free on this order. My freezer is getting stocked up again. I love coleslaw - it's my veggie of choice, plus it lasts alot longer than lettuce. I eat about 2 cups at a meal so those 3 bags of coleslaw will be gone in a little over a week.

I finished reading Crazy Kisses by Tara Janzen - Romance - excellent.
