There are some decent deals at Savemart this week — most of which is their hamburger for 1.69 — I stocked up since there are so many simple meals to make that start with hamburger. If I’d had the will I would have pre-cooked a bunch of it, but let’s face it — will isn’t my high point right now.
Safeway is doing their Living Well promotion, which took me about 6 hours to figure out what I’m gonna buy. Here’s my scenario for today.
3 skippy creamy @2.50 ea. with 40 cent coupons (1.08)
2 Crisco non-stick sprays @ 2.99 ea. (1.77)
1 Chef Boyardee can o’ something @ 1.00 (.59)
2 Arrowhead waters @ 1.99 ea with 1.00 coupons from last time (30 cent money maker, which mostly goes to CRV)
2 Yo plus yogurts @ 2.50 ea with 1.00 coupons (.48)
2 Oscar Meyer Deli Creations @ 2.50 ea with .75 coupons (.74)
2 No-Yolk noodes @ 1.25 with .75 coupons (basically free)
total before coupons, etc. = 48.09
After coupons, card savings, etc. 21.26 PLUS I got back a 10 dollar catalina for next time, and a 2 dollar catalina for buying 2 arrowhead waters (again, reminder that you need to use those on your next trip — or it’s wasted $$). So, if you minus the 12 I get to use next time my total was 9.26. Feel that joy!
This Living Well promo is a hard one to figure. BTW, I also have a 10% discount on my card right now — you can sometimes call and get it, I try about once a month to try and get it — I just got lucky last time. ANYWAY, so if you’re trying to figure it out you just take your product price X .66 to get your total (you want to hit as close to 30 dollars as you can with this — that’s why I bought the Chef Boyardee) to see if it’s a good price. Some of it really isn’t. I have another scenario planned for whenever I get my weekend papers. Word on the street there’s some good coupons in it. I get almost all of my info from this thread on slickdeals — I love how people add their scenarios combining coupons, etc. Also, most of the coupons I had were internet printables and the links should be on that page as well.
