I needed bread, milk, toilet paper, and distilled water. I started the week with a $5.00 catalina for Albertson's and a $5.00 Register Reward from Walgreen's. I wasn't hurting for sure. I knew I could get some or a portion of all of those items with those two coupons that I had. I have been really low on cereal, and I REALLY wanted to get in on the deal Albertson's was having, so I got creative and came up with a pretty dang good scenario. If I do say so myself. And I do! Are you ready...? Here we go!
Albertson's Transaction#1 was:
4 boxes of Post Selects - $10.00 (-$4.00 instant discount - 1 $1.00 off 2 coupon doubled) = $4.00
2 Velveeta shells & cheese cups - $2.00 (-B1G1Free coupon) = $1.00
Used $5.00 catalina - paid $.42 tax + I received a $3.00 catalina for the cereal and a $1.00 catalina for the mac&cheese!
Transaction# 2 was: 4 boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats - $10.00 (-$4.00 instant discount -2 $1.00 off 2 coupons doubled) = $2.00
2 gallons milk(not pictured) - $3.98
Used $3.00 and $1.00 catalina from tran#1
Net OOP: $2.46!
Next I went to Walgreen's:
1 Soft Soap Serum - $3.99
Used $5.00 Register Reward
Net OOP: $.79 + I received a $4.00 Register Reward for the Soft Soap!
Transaction#2 was:3 gallons of distilled water - $2.00 (w/in ad coupon)
1 can olives - $.99 (w/in ad coupon)
3 rolls of TP - $1.47
Used $4.00 RR from Transaction#1
Net OOP: $.73
So for everything you see here, I spent a total of $4.40! I have $.60 left and no bread.
Hmmm...we have been doing okay that past few days without it (we have 3 pieces left!), but I am going to make some bread and or bread items like Pita Pockets, rolls, and bread in my bread machine. I think we will make it until Monday!
Does anyone have any great bread recipes I should try?
