Mondays With Mavis…
This week I made 5 purchases… and spent a total of $33.16 after coupons, rebates and SCR’s… Here’s what I purchased:
On Monday I went to Rite Aid and after coupons and SCR’s my total was $13.99 oop… I was left with $14 in Up Rewards and a $3 off my next $15 or more purchase survey coupon at the bottom of my receipt. So… in the long run… it was a moneymaker 🙂 You can read more about this specific trip HERE.
I was also able to come across a bunch more of those $5 Similac coupons (4/3 SS) so I used them to my advantage and played the overage game at Walmart again this week. Two items caught my eye while I was shopping #1 A box of Kellogg’s “Try Me Free” fruit filled mini wheats… and the other was the Toy Story 3 Operation Game… The “Try Me Free” cereal was a no brainer… but the Toy Story 3 Game… even though my kids are teenagers … I still picked it up… because for only $2 (after the $3.00 off any Operation Game Coupon) I thought it would be the perfect gift to add to my Toy’s For Tot’s Christmas gift stash.
And… because you can only use 1 Similac coupon per transaction… I had several receipts… Which is fine with me… after all… I was able to score a bunch of produce, bread and other odds and ends for ultra cheap with my overage PLUS pick up a bunch of free formula for the food bank 🙂
With Fresh Express salad on sale this week at Safeway for only $1 a bag (prices good through Tuesday) I simply used (5) .50 cents off 1 bag of Fresh Express coupon 4/3 SS to score .50 cent salad and spinach salad blends. 1 Bag of FREE Beef Jerky. And…just to point out I’m totally human… I paid FULL PRICE for 5 apples and a bag of caramels… My daughter finally had her braces taken off and requested carameled apples for dessert. So this particular trip was a rather pricey one $7.01 Yikes!
Mavis + Albertsons Double Coupons = $8.79 oop! You can find all the match up’s HERE
Rite Aid .79 cents oop
My total for 2 gallons of milk, 1 box of Kellogg’s “Try Me Free” cereal and 16 Snickers Eggs was $15.79 before coupons. I used a $3 off $15 survey coupon, 2 $2 Up Rewards (from my first Rite Aid purchase) and 8 $1 off M&M products coupon from the 4/10 SS. After I factor in the .44 cent stamp for mailing in the cereal rebate form from the box… I will receive $4.05 back from Kellogg’s for the “Try M Free” cereal offer.
So after Rebates and SCR’s… this week I spent a total of $33.16 oop. Plus I still have a FREE case of Albertsons water catalina (the person before me didn’t take their coupon) a $10 Up Reward I received on Monday and another $3 off $15 purchase survey coupon from the bottom of my milk ,cereal,eggs purchase.
Total Spent This Week $33.16
