Having said that - I hit the jackpot today! My jaw just about dropped to the floor when the Albertson's cashier told me how much I just saved. Here's what I got (you'll have to wait to see how much I saved.....)
19 boxes of General Mills cereal
5 Betty Crocker cookie mixes
2 boxes of Bagelfuls
6 boxes of Betty Crocker fruit snacks
1 can of Pam (I should have purchased this in purchase #2 below)
1 pkg of Chips Ahoy cookies
4 boxes of Fiber One toaster pastries
3 cups of mini Chips Ahoy cookies
1 8pk of Coke (it's in the next picture)
Because I had so many boxes of cereal and nothing else would fit in the cart, I paid for this and took it to my car and came back in for more. In total I paid $49.46 and saved $111.68. If you're familiar with this sale you'll know that for every $10 you spend on Kraft items, you save $4 at the register. I saved $32 plus all my coupons.
1 box Ritz crackers
6 boxes Orville Redenbacher popcorn
3, 4pks of Hunts pudding
10 Marie Callendars pot pies
5 Frozen Healthy Choice meals
2 bottles Hunts Ketchup
2 boxes of Betty Crocker Stickerz (these should have been purchased with purchase #1 above)
2 bags David's Sunflower seeds
As you can see, I made a few mistakes in the sales - that's another reason I don't like bringing my kids. I get easily distracted. My second purchase was $45.12 and I saved $63.39. I also earned $10 towards my next shopping trip. In total I spent $94.58 and saved $175.37. I walked out with a little spring in my step and a smile on my face.
I had a few extra coupons especially for the ConAgra sale. If you receive the Salt Lake papers, there was an insert for Smith's a few weeks back. These were manufacturer's coupons and a lot of them were on this weeks Albertson's sale. Also, if you happened to pick up the May edition of All You magazine from WalMart, there were a few coupons in there as well (it's not too late to get one from WalMart).
