In case you did not know Albertson is having an AMAZING sale on Quaker products right now. $1.29 when you buy in groups of 6. BUT when I went to my local Albertsons in Caldwell yesterday I noticed that they had a sign with them priced at only $.79 each. The store has coupons at the registers that takes $1.00 off 2 makes them only $.79 each when you buy in groups of 6.
Please note that this is while supplies last, they had 8 pallets full and another 5 pallets full in the back. SO go stock up, but don’t go to crazy so there is enough o share with everyone

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.

I am a stay at home mom with four wonderful kids. I have been married for over 13 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.
