food pantry haul

July 29th, 2011 at 11:49 am

ytd = April 1 2011 - March 31, 2012
Coupon total ytd = 785.47
RX total = 219.65
Discounted Gift Cards = 207.19
Total = 1,1212.31

It's the end of the month and several coupons are expiring. They are for things I can get free that I can give to the food pantry, so I went shopping today.

I went to 2 Walgreens and got 9 .39 mailers for myself. I've used 4 in the last 2 days with paperback swap books. Spent $4.14. Went to the post office to mail my items and spent $7.64

At King Soopers I spent .83 in taxes and got a $2 OYNO coupon back, so basically made money. The $2 coupon was for buying 3 Crest toothpaste. When you buy $6 in Crest you get a coupon for $2 off your next order. The $6 is the before sale price, so even though they were on sale for $1 and I had coupons to make them free, the catalina is based on the $2.24 pre-sale price.

I got the following for .83 in taxes after coupons. All of it goes to the food pantry.

3 boxes Ronzoni Garden Delights pasta
3 6.4 oz tubes Colgate toothpaste
6 Oral B toothbrushes
3 12 oz Ivory body wash

Next was Safeway were I spent .49 and got a coupon for $3 off my next $10 produce purchase. I got the following

16 oz SW brand brown rice - FREE
12 oz SW brand marinade - FREE
16 oz SW brand frozen green beans - FREE
1 bag Fresh Express coleslaw - .49

The rice and marinade go to the food pantry.

I finished reading my book Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs. Paranormal - very good.

    Great job! The only stores I can get free stuff from are CVS and Walgreens, and except for one time, either they were sold out of the free stuff or I messed up my couponing and didn't get the discount I was looking for.

    Maybe sometime I'll try to get back into it, but for the time being my supercouponing for charity doesn't seem like a very fruitful pursuit!
