Before sale price or coupons this would have cost $28.72, I was able to get it all for $6.88 not bad for 8 jars of sauce and 3 lbs of Pork Ribs! I used my catalinas to pay for the meat.
This is the week to stock up on Barilla Pasta Sauce at Albertsons! They are on sale for $1.50 each (price good till 5/14) BUT there is a hidden catalina printing. After coupon and catalina you can get them FREE (just pay tax).
Barilla Pasta Sauces (buy 4) cost of $6
Use 4 coupons for $1/1 Barilla Pasta Sauces ( coupon insert 4/7 SS)
Pay $2 plus tax out of pocket
After you pay get back a $2 Catalina
Update*** a reader told me on facebook that the catalina is printing when you buy 3, if this works it turns them into a money maker!
You can then use the Catalina on your next transaction (buy 4 more, use 4 more coupons plus the catalina) and get them FREE just pay sales tax… plus after you pay another catalina will print out for $2 off your next purchase.
Yesterday I went to Ridley’s in Middleton to pick up 2 flats of strawberries (8lbs for $9.98) I wanted to make jam and freeze them for smoothies. BUT while I was there I noticed they were having their FILL IT FRESH $10 bag sale. You can FILL you white bag with what ever (select) veggies you want.
Jonagold, Cameo, Fuji, or Braeburn Apples
2 lbs Carrots
Yams, Red or Russet Baker Potatoes
Fresh Broccoli or Cauliflower
Medium Yellow Onions
Red or Green Bell Peppers
I filled mine with 24 items makes them 42 cents each… WOW. I do not know about you but I think this is the BEST DEAL IN TOWN on fresh produce. Deal ends monday night!
Another great local deal is at Stonehenge Produce (white barn at Fairview and cloverdale) has California strawberries $.89 lb or $6.95 flat. They will have them for the next few days. If you make jam this is the best price of the year.
I finally made it to Albertsons late in the day yesterday to use my twice the value coupons. Today is the last day of the sale but lots of good deals to be found this week! Before sale price or coupons this would have cost me $179.16, I was able to get it all for $38.35. PLUS I still have 4 catalina coupons fro FREE milk, that is 4 free gallons of milk!
I am a stay at home mom with four wonderful kids. I have been married for over 12 years to my best friend. He always supports my crazy "thrifty adventures". If you didn't know already - I'm a Heart Mom. Our oldest has a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He basically has half a heart. We even started a charity called Save Lives Save Money to help other heart families in their time of need. Where couponers give back to help pay for basic needs of families in need.
I was raised on a small dairy farm. I learned very young, the value of hard work and how to be thrifty in all areas of life. Our meals were made from scratch. Only on special occasion would we get name brand cereal, chips, or any other fancy treats. Now that I am a Mom with my own budget, and coupon shop, the basic foods always comes first. I too make most of our meals from scratch recipes and take pride in feeding my family a well balanced healthy diet. You can follow our weekly Menu Plan to see how you can coupon and eat healthy at the same time!
I enjoy seeing how far I can make our budget stretch, and when I take the time to match sales with coupons I am able to get all those "fun & fancy" items that would other wise be out of my budget. From our Coupon Database, to our page to print coupons, our Couponing 101, our Freebies 101 - we like to call it a Thrifty Living Lifestyle. We post my weekly budget review so you can see exactly how far you can stretch a budget. Being thrifty has always been a way of life for me. For more info see A Thrifty Mom in the Media.
