Oct. 23 Shopping Trips - Target and City Market Deals

Ran to Target to do the Glade g/c deal a few times and get some cheap peanut butter. Also found the Febreeze for $.14 and a free Gillette razor using the $4 coupon. Spent $7.59 and have about $6 on these g/c.

Went to City Market. I had some great coupons for the Post buy 4 save $4 deal. Also got Muir Glen organic tomato paste for $.10 each. Picked up some free yogurt and found some Sargento cheese clearanced, with a coupon it was about $.20. Otherwise just bought what I needed: milk, flour, bread, eggs, some produce. Used my $10 cat from the joint juice deal last week and paid $14.54 OOP.

Another Week Under Budget

Had a good Target run this week. The ice cream deal made my day. I was seriously craving some mint chip ice cream... I paid $17.48 +tax & got back $10 in gift cards for the ice cream & Kellogg's items. Might even be able to get another $10 Kellogg's rebate with them. No mega sales at the grocery stores this week - but I still only spent $70 total at all stores and that's $30 under budget. :) I didn't take the time to get pics of my Safeway & City Market deals - nothing too great, picked up 22 packets of Reach dental floss for free at CM. Won't have to buy that for awhile. :)

$20 Under Budget!!

I'm so happy to be under budget this week. Especially considering that I had to buy my special shampoo & conditioner because I'm allergic to almost everything - they were $14 - yikes! There were some great items at Target that were free or cheap including mascara, Johnson's body wash, Glade candles & refills, Tide & Chef Michael dog food. I saved $132.90 & paid $2.32 + tax (sorry I didn't get a pic)

Safeway had a great cereal promo. I also got alot of free or cheap items including Barilla pasta, Squirt, Wishbone Dressing, Arm & Hammer toothpaste. I was down to my last 3 boxes of cereal so this worked great to replenish my stockpile. Paid $23.97 and saved over $139 that's 87% - however I will send in my receipt & get a $10 Kellogg's rebate so that's a bonus!

City Market is still having their mega sale but I used my best coupons last week. Still I was thrilled to find No Name Steaks clearanced for $3.99 with $1 peelies on them. Got 6 free Wholly Salsas & Free Yakisoba noodles, Mentos gum & Reeses (very evil). And when I checked out the cashieer was so excited about how much I saved he insisted on high-fiving me. I didn't have the heart to tell him I saved more at Safeway :) Paid $31.28 and saved almost $89 which was 75%

Oh, I want to shout it from the rooftops! I LOVE this City Market/Kroger promo. The coupons for Propel & Sobe ended up making me $15 to use toward the rest of my items. I paid about $25 for all this and saved a total of $181. I splurged on the Hummus - paid $4 for it, but you got to have Hummus with Stacy's Pita Chips, yummy!

Rite Aid Clearance

There were gold nugget Snickers clearanced for $.25 at Rite Aid. Using the $1/2 coupon from a couple weeks ago made for a nice moneymaker to help bring down my total on the Freebate items.

Target Deals!!

Right now you can get an overage on some Hasbro games at Target. Cadoo was clearanced for $3.75 use this $5 coupon for a nice overage. The best part is that I used about 10 of these coupons today and not a single one beeped. I paid $24 for these items & that's including an ink cartridge for $29 (I've got to find some cheaper ink).

City Market Doubles!!

Looks like I can't complain any longer. Both my local stores (Safeway & City Market) now double coupons! I am so excited! I can't wait to get all the awesome deals that everyone else brags about.
