grocery trip

I am a little disappointed in my trip. I only brought certain coupons with me to IGA for kelloggs cereal. and the ones that I had the coupon for were gone...very disapointed.

overall IGA deals were still good though
I spent 29 dollars
I saved 32 Dollars

Super Valu
Spent 30
Saved 4

but I bought meat from super Value. And I forgot the milk so my totals for the week are off. Once again I was aiming for 50$ but did only spend 60, and I really got a lot.


IGA Deal

Ok so I found another One

buy 5 Products and Save 3$ with Coupon(it is in the flyer). I will say I barely looked at this earlier, but at second glance I think I found a Deal

Buy 5 yoplait yogurt 10/7$ (.70each) or 3.50 total
use 3$ coupon
there is also a .50 of off coupon when you buy six.. then you will pay a little more
so with just store coupon you pay .50 total
Wit store coupon and Manufacturers coupon .70 total


IGA and Kelloggs rebate

ok if you got the papper this last sunday, than you got the kellogs coupon insert. Well in that insert is a rebate form for 10$ back when you buy 10 products. So here is the GREAT deal that I figured out...

6 Kellogs cereal 1.88 each
1$/2 coupon in the kelloggs insert
$1.38 each after coupon
total of $8.28


4 PopTarts 2/$3
1$/2 coupon in kelloggs insert
$1.00 each after coupon
total 4$

Total of poptarts and cereal 12.28

So I will Pay $2.28 after rebate for all of that..
isn't it great.. I am so excited to go shopping.
this does require though that you have access to an extra insert, weather you buy two pappers or get extra inserts from others (I have a wonderfull aunt who has given me hers)

Thanks for looking

About Me

My photo

Hi, I am a stay at home mommy who is trying to stay sane with three very mischievous little boys, who are the light of my life. Oh, I also have a husband that I adore. I have recently started a weight loss journey (again). I do like good deals, but have not been as active as I use to be in couponing.. and lastly I am a flybaby who hasn't been flittering very well recently, but I am still trying.
