14 Kraft cheese $1.99 - .50 MD - .75 cpn = $.74 each
1 Kroger napkins $1.67

I am very pleased w/ the savings, but when I got home I noticed that none of the Kraft cheese coupons at $.75 doubled. Has anyone else had this problem?? I got all 14 of them in the blinkie machine at the store. It only adds up to $3.50, but that's another $3.50 I could have saved!!

Meijers Savings Trip

Went to Meijers and they also had a rain check item in!!

6 Electrosol Dishwasher detergents $3.00 - $2.50 cpn = $.50 each
2 Healthy Ones lunch meat $1.79 - .75 cpn = $.79 each
4 Kelloggs cereal $2.50 - $1 cpn - $2/4 = $1 box
(Now $1/box is a good deal on cereal...but these are the huge boxes which make this an even better deal!!)

I spent $22.95 on meats. I love Meijer meat, it was on sale, so I decided to stock up. I won't need meat for awhile, and unless they have GREAT deals, I don't make it to Meijers each week (it's about 15 miles). However, this does rack up my total. So, for now I will subtract the $22.95 to show the great deals available this week.

oop = $9.75
coupon savings = $21.00

I finally got to Walgreens this week and they were restocked with some of my rain check items (marked *). Yipee!!

* 1 Electrosol dishwasher detergent $3.49 - $2.50 cpn= $1
1 Reach floss (no coupon!!) $1.79

Used a $3 RR and $2.20 rebate card.
oop = $14.50
Earned a $10 RR for the Ragu and will get a ES rebate of $1.50 on the Electrosol.
So, my net oop = $3!!

Fun at Krogers??

Sounds like a lot of us are enjoying the savings at Krogers.
Apparently, the sale runs again next week...hopefully so!!
Anyway, enjoy the savings. I am planning on a least one more trip there, a Walgreens trip to stock up on Ragu, and a Meijers run for chicken & Kelloggs.

"Heads Up " on Rebates!!!

Don't make the same mistake I did with the Pepsi/Frito Lay Rebate. I was under the assumption that it was just buy $20 worth of these products. Untrue!! When I sat down to do the rebate last night, I realized the requirements for the rebate:
three 12 packs of Pepsi
(or four 8 pks, two 24 pks, two 18 pks, or eight 2 liters)
and
three 9oz or larger bags of Frito Lay snacks,dips, etc...

Unfortunately, I only bought 2 bags of chips and the rest I spent on pop. So, I need to buy 1 more bag of Fritos or something before the deadline of 2/1/09.
Thankfully, I did not wait until then to try to fill out the rebate!!

It must not have been my night for rebates, for then I tried to do the P & G and realized I am $1.80 short on it as well!!! Again, I still have time.

Do I get an "A" for effort??

CVS Fantastic Savings!



Here's a low down on what I bought:

18 Reese Whipps 2/$1 - $1/2 cpns = FREE
2 Excedrin Express Gels $1.99 - $2 IP cpn = FREE
3 American Greeting cards $.99 each
1 Colgate Total $3.49 - $.75 cpn = $2.74
1 Colgate Advanced Total $3.49 - $1 cpn = $2.49
1 Clairol Natural Instincts $5.99 - $2 cpn = $3.99
used $16.75 in coupons, subtotal $12.87
used $10 ECBs
oop = $2.87
earned $7 ECBs ($2 colgate, $3 cards, $2 Clairol)

I had planned on buying the Palmolive, but they were out of stock.
So, I bought the Clariol instead in order to use the entire $10 ECB.

CVS Scenario

I've got $10 ECBs, so here's my plan:

5 Palmolive dish 11 oz (from rain check) $1.49 - .25 cpn - $1 ECB = $.24 each
1 Herbal Essences Hydralicious Shampoo/Conditioner $2.99 -$1 ECBs - $1 cpn = $.99
Colgate Total Advanced Toothpaste $3.49 - $1 ECBs -.75 cpn = $1.74

Net oop = $10.93
ECBs used = $10
oop = $.93 plus tax
earn $7 in ECBs

Has anyone in the Cincy area found a CVS that has the Arm & Hammer Essentials in stock? I've tried 2 stores in my area and neither store ever got this item in. I have a rain check I've been wanting to use. Would appreciate any help!!

Menu Planning 1/19 - 1/25/09

Here's whats on the menu this week:

Monday cheeseburgers (on the Foreman grill)
Tuesday spaghetti
Wednesday chicken pasta stir fry
Thursday salmon patties
Friday Date Night!!
Saturday beef enchiladas
Sunday chicken tortilla soup

My husband and I are planning to go out Friday..we received several restaurant gift cards for Christmas and need to use them up. Will get something for the kids to cook for themselves.
