Albertson’s I’ve Missed You!

I haven’t been in Alby’s in a while since their sales haven’t been too hot.  I went tonight to take advantage of their really good sale that ends at midnight (thank you list makers for posting the following week’s ads so I can preview and see if the sale is running for another week or not!)

Great sale got me 14 pasta sauces, 1 Pam cooking spray, 1 Ready Whip, 6 Chef Boyardee products, 6 Banquet sausages, 14 tub margarines, 3 cube margarines,  and some other stuff.  I did 3 transactions and hardly used any coupons.  This was a sale where if you purchase $25 in certain products (before coupons) then a catalina (coupon that prints out and looks similar to a receipt) will print out that is good for $10 off your next purchase.  Well I used that $10 coupon to help buy an additional $25 of groceries and out popped another catalina.  I then used that new $10 off catalina coupon to buy all my regular items: milk, bananas, cheese, bread, baby food.

Next week I’m shopping at Smith’s in case you want a heads up of the really good deals.  Buy 10 participating items and get an instant $3 off AND a catalina (remember, the coupon that prints out and looks similar to a receipt) for $3 off your next purchase. 

Getting food storage is so much fun!

Smith’s Great Sale 2/2- 2/8

I got all this (100 items including the shrimp ring) for $71 OOP (out of pocket).  I’ve learned the sale cycles so I buy items when they are at their lowest price AND I do a clip-less coupon approach.  It’s easy, saves time AND more importantly it saves money!

I’m hosting a FREE Grocery Smarts class in my home at the end of February AND I’m feeding you!  What more could you want?  (I also have a toy room if you need to bring your little ones).

This trip I got charcoal for $2, bagged cheese for $2 a lb, sliced cheese for 49 cents, hot dogs for 39 cents, baby lotions for $1.50, and lots more!

In the past I’ve gotten jumbo packs of diapers for $2.50, salsa for 9 cents a jar,  tortillas for 10 cents, canned veggies for less than 30 cents each, packs of dishwasher tabs for less than $1 a box,  cases of bottled water for $1.79, hummus for FREE, cool whip for FREE, bags of shredded cheese for FREE, toothpaste and toothbrushes for FREE, deodorant for 25 cents, RoTel for 16 cents a jar, a box of copy paper for $5 (normally $50), a Sonicare electric toothbrush for $9 (regularly $49), and an entire pantry, freezer, and bathroom stocked up with items my family uses.  Oh, and I NEVER pay more than a $1 for a box of cereal (Kashi, Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Trix, or any kind)!

You too can learn the best deals and when to stock up on the items you use most.  Let me know if you or anyone you know is interested and I’ll get you the info.

Smith’s is having case lot sales!  Get out of my way!  I’m on a mission to stock up my pantry and my new Shelf Reliance food rotation shelf.  So happy!

Harmon’s up in St. George is also having case lot sales through the entire month.  They have food buckets, bucket openers, bread making supplies, and food in #10 cans, in addition to the regular case lots.

Usually these sales are closer to March and September, but I’m excited to get stocked up in January and then see how long it all lasts. 

PS- That kiddie sized grocery cart was found in the Smith’s grocery store in Price, UT.  Mikey was just as much a part of shopping the case lots as I was =o)

Happy shopping!

This Week’s Deals!

Weekly deals- Nov 2
Weekly deals- Nov 2

I’m celebrating the presidential defeat/ victory (depending on your outlook) today by shopping!  Check out my deals at Smith’s!  They are having one of those buy 10 items and save sales.  Throw in some coupons like I did and I got everything for $6 bucks and got free razors and free toothpaste!  Even though I don’t really need the free things someone out there does- so it’s a great way to help charities or families in need and it doesn’t cost a cent!!  And now I’m home and the kiddos are both sleeping =o) 

And if you’re not afraid of generic diapers then check out HERE to get the scoop on the amazing sale at Walgreens!!  Seriously it’s like buying 1 pack of jumbo Walgreens brand diapers (all sizes) and getting 3 free when you combine sale and coupon.  I’ve been to 4 Walgreens stores and stocked up.  The store and Craig and MLK has the red pharmacy coupon book sitting out for you to take at the “customer consultation” station.  So grab your coupon book from there, go to the diaper aisle and get 4 packs (limit 4), go to check out to ring up the diapers first, then hold the coupon book out for the clerk to scan the diaper coupon (it takes $2 off each package).  It’s like getting a pack of diapers for $2.50.  Can’t go wrong!  If you’re leary about diaper leakage, then use generics during the day and name brand at night. 

No more shopping this week, b/c I want to stay within budget this month, I am notorious for going broke on good deals, and it’s only the first part of the month so I want to save for deals later on.

Thanks Thrifymama for the info about these great deals!
