Deals

Welcome to another exciting, edge of your seat episode of deals. I bet you're wondering how much I paid for all of this.....well, I'm about to tell you. The cereal was 2.50 a box (not a spectacular deal, but wait!). I had 2 coupons for .50 each that doubled and a .75 coupon. When you bought 3 boxes of cereal, you could get 2 gallons of milk for .99 each. I had 2 coupons for free chex mix (that I got off of Reese Puff cereal a couple weeks ago) and there was no deal on the creamer, but Tim wanted it. Total spent at Kroger this week 9.85 (and the creamer was 3.15 of that!).
Now we move on to CVS. My total there was 32.81 after coupons. I will be sending in for a 12.99 refund on the Sambucol. I also got 15.98 back in extra care bucks. So, if you subtract the money I got back (or will be getting back) which is 28.97, my total for this shopping trip is 3.84! Whoo hoo! I love CVS!
My last purchase came from Lowes. It is a houseplant and cost me exactly zero dollars. I got a $10 off coupon when I signed up for their Learn 2 Grow program. Unfortunately, they have now removed that deal, but I understand there will be more deals in the future, so it can't hurt to sign up!

very good. i am still having a hard time talking about the fact that i was too sick to think about a paper this week. i usually get between 6-20 papers. will i survive??

Great deals. You need to go to Meijer and get the free Quaker Oatmeal (you hopefully have the .60 off coupon), making it free! I've gotten 18 so far!!

Our Meijer only doubles up to .50, so I don't think that would work for me right? I'm guessing I could still get it for .20?

Lura said...

I can't believe you didn't send someone out for the paper! Anyways, none of my deals were with this weeks coupons, so go out there and do some deals!

i would have sent steve but i slept on and off all day and it never once occured to me

Jamie said...

Ours double a .60 coupon to a dollar or in this case to .99 because that's the price of the oatmeal. Will they do that??

Lura said...

Nope. I don't think I have the coupon anyways.

Found your blog through Money Saving Mom and noticed you have triplets...me too!! No wonder we have to do so much bargain shopping :)

Mine are 16mos now...So, tell me it gets easier!

Audrey- I "only" have twins. Ha ha. I also have another son who is 20 months younger than them. My friend has the triplets that I watched the other day. Her triplets and my twins are 4 months apart in age.
