Mondays With Mavis
It’s been two weeks since our last round of Albertsons Double Coupons… How are you holding up? It’s dry spells like these when having a good sized stockpile sure does come in handy. After all if every week was as coupon crazy as this one we’d never get a break from clipping coupons to do fun things like scope out garage sales and pick up awesome Brown Leather Hats like the one I’m wearing. 🙂
As you might have guessed… this was a slow week for Mavis. Beside picking fresh strawberries, peas, raspberries and swiss chard from our garden I also picked up:
9 boxes of brownies, 1 gallon of milk (free w/catalina) 1 package of Twizzlers (I’m saving those for the upcoming Harry Potter movie) 1 (free) can of corn, 3 (free) doughnuts and 4 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars from Albertsons on the last day of the sale for $9.64 (I also earned $7 in catalina coupons thanks to the Nature Valley Granola Bars).
On July 4th I picked up whipping cream & Jello-pudding (for my strawberry cake) and a free 4 pack of tropical fruit (thanks to the Summer Sizzlin’ Sweepstakes) for $6.28
8 ears of corn for $2.00 at QFC
1 gallon of milk, 1 head of iceberg lettuce, 1 loaf of bread , 1 lemon, 2 banana’s (missing from the photo) and 1 large packet of green bean seeds for $2.53 (I used my $7 in catalina coupons from the Nature Valley Deal).
While my kids were at the dentist I popped over to P.F.Chang’s and picked up a FREE ORDER of lettuce wraps (and paid $2.75 for a strawberry lemonade).
I paid $1.00 for 4 Otter Pops (and take a look at the awesome robes from Morocco I picked up at the garage sale for only $5! I’m sure you’re all terribly disappointed you didn’t get in on that deal!). 🙂 If you’re wondering why I look like I’m wearing football gear under my new favorite costume… It’s because I also picked up a really nice white down jacket for $7… which according to this photo I was still wearing at about 2 in the afternoon in 80 degree weather. Geez… no wonder I thought .25 cents for Otter Pops was such a great deal… I was obviously suffering from the side effects of sun stroke!
So there you have it.
