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 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 wanted to know if you could do a post on things that can be frozen. I just got a chest freezer this week, and I was unsure as to what “non freezer food” I could freeze. I know that I can freeze lunchmeat, right? I mostly wonder about things like cream cheese, refrigerated cookie dough, biscuits, etc – things that say “do not freeze” on them – but I figure you actually can. I heard that cheese freezes really well too. I figured that since you have been doing this awhile you would have a better list of things that do and do not freeze well.
I think this a great question. From my experience I have had great luck freezing lunch meat, cookie dough, shredded cheese, cooked squash, bananas for baking or milkshakes. Bread, bagels, muffins, and pancakes as long as you do not keep then in longer than a few weeks. I have to say I do not have all the answers on this one, I so am looking for all my readers to give your 2 cents on this topic! What have you had good luck with in the freezer? Or better yet tell me your freezer nightmares. You can also check out this guest post Every Thing You Need To Know About Freezing Food From a-z.
