Mr. 8 has been begging to get our pumpkins since they started appearing in stores, so I figured this was a good use of the $5/$30 ALDI coupon from the 10/4 Tribune! This all ran me $26.17 after coupon yesterday — I was at $30.63 before tax, so hit it pretty close, lol. What did you get with yours?
Stopped by Jewel this morning for the cheap pork roast on the one day sale — I’m thinking some kind of pulled pork in the Crock Pot tomorrow, you? They were already out of the Fisher walnuts, so guess I’ll just get the cheaper walnuts at Caputo’s this weekend instead when I’m down that way. None of the ice cream was tagged, but it did ring up $1.99. Not pictured: Two Mentos gum, which I threw in my purse and forgot about til I looked at the receipt just now, lol.
Two Mentos gum, BOGO at $1.49.
Florida’s Natural OJ, $2.50. Used $1.00/1 printable (ZIP 46102). Will get $.20 back on Ibotta.
2 Dean’s ice cream, $3.98. Used two $1.00/1 printables (ZIP 60126).
Hormel pork roast, $6.89. Used $2.00/1 printable (ZIP 60126).
Hormel pork roast, $5.69. Used $2.00/1 printable (ZIP 60126).
That came to $14.00 even, and I’ll get $.20 back. The Fresh Express salad wasn’t on sale, even though there’s the $2.00/2 coupon in this week’s ad — there is also a $1.00/1 coupon in the October Big Book of Savings, so wait for a better deal.
Spice Islands spices were tagged BOGO through Nov. 1, and a number of them had $1.00/2 hangtags. New England coffee was tagged BOGO at $7.49 through 10/11. And there were some random $1.00 and $.50 clearance bins at the Lombard store filled largely with Essential Everyday drink mixes, some Annie’s pasta and Amy’s chili, and fancy bagged pasta.
And you really have to wonder what happened here! … although I’m sure “mainentance” will fix it! 😉
So every once in a while I get a run of good CVS email coupons in a row… then they dry up for a while. But right now it’s on the upswing, and this week they sent me a $10/$40 in email. So…
4 Campbell’s chunky soup, $6.00. Used $1.00/4 in the 10/4 SS2 and $1.00/4 CVS coupon from the coupon center.
2 Gold Emblem Abound popcorn, $2.00. Use $2.00/2 printable (no longer available).
Big Tide, $11.94. Used $2.00/1 from the 9/27 PG.
2 Crest Sensi Rinse, $9.58. Used two $2.00/1 from the 9/13 RP2.
2 Speed Stick Gear deodorant, $7.98. Used two $2.00/1 from the 9/20 SS.
Dean’s milk, $2.69.
Used my $10/$40 and paid with $15 ECB and $3.50. Got back $14 ECB ($1.00 milk, $3.00 Tide, $6.00 Crest, $4.00 Speed Stick) for a net cost of $4.50.
Popped into ALDI today for more $.69 mushrooms before the sales flip tomorrow, and picked up:
3 avocados, $2.07.
Corn tortillas, $.33.
Flour tortillas, $.85.
Low carb wraps, $2.29.
2 packs mushrooms, $1.38.
Shredded Parmesan, $1.99.
That’s $10.89. So far I’ve spent net $17.04 on grocery and HBA shopping between ALDI today and CVS on Sunday… not sure yet who’s going to get the rest of my shopping dollars this week, lol. Where are you shopping this week?
CVS sent me a $6/$30 in email coupon this week, necessitating this trip: Five bottles of Tide for $29.70 and one First Degree burn cream for $5.00 = $34.70. Used the $6/$30 coupon, two $2.00/1 and one $5.00/3 Tide in the 9/27 PG, and one $1.00/1 burn cream in the 5/17 RP2. Paid with $12.50 ECB and $8.65, then got back $15.00 ECB ($10 Tide, $5 burn cream) for a net cost of $6.15.
Stopped by Dollar Tree this afternoon to look for Crest toothpaste — they hadn’t put the bonus size out yet, but used my last very-long-ago $1.00/1 Brownberry printable and a no-longer-available $1.00/1 Glad food storage printable to pay $1.12 for sandwich bags, bread, and English muffins.
This was the Downers Grove Dollar Tree on Butterfield. I’ve only ever seen that store and the Glen Ellyn store on Roosevelt carry the Brownberry and Thomas’ (and they don’t always have both), so if you have seen these brands at your store, please comment here so we can figure out what locations tend to have them.
Can you tell I had an Excedrin headache while shopping this morning? It’s funny cause it’s true :-/
2 Colgate 360 brushes, $5.98. Used two $1.00/1 from the 9/13 SS and a $2.00 CVS coupon from the coupon center/price scanner machine.
3 bags Halloween candy, $9.00. Used $2.00/3 from the machine and $2.00/3 from the 9/13 RP2.
Starbucks Refresher, $1.50. Used no longer available
the $.50/1 printable coupon here.
2 100 ct bottles of Excedrin, $20.00. Used $3.00 CVS coupon from the machine and two $1.00/1 printable coupons.
Paid with $6.56 and $18.10 in ECB. Got back $16.50 ECB ($1.50 Starbucks, $4.00 Colgate, $1.00 Mars, $10 Excedrin) for a net cost of $8.16.
Stopped by Jewel today to pick up the free Earthbound Farm salad kit — then walked by the clearance meat since I forgot to thaw something for dinner tonight. They had two tiny packs of Hormel sirloin pork chops with $2.00 clearance stickers, and I fortuitously had two Hormel coupons in my purse, so…
Earthbound Farm salad kit, free with MyMixx digital coupon. Got $.25 back on Checkout 51.
Clearance Hormel pork chops, $1.09. Used $1.00/1 printable coupon.
Clearance Hormel pork chops, $.63. Used $1.00/1 printable coupon.
Yoplait yogurt cup (to absorb the Hormel overage), $.50. Got back $.25 on Shrink. (New to Shrink? Code JQOJWO when you create your account in the app = a $1.00 bonus! Create it manually; do not use Facebook to sign in.).
Paid $.26 with $.50 back for a net cost of: I’m up $.24 and we have free dinner tonight. 😉
Note: There’s also a Hormel coupon on MyMixx, but I can’t load half the MyMixx coupons lately — I keep getting “this coupon cannot be loaded to your card at this time.” Which is kind of ironic after the big deal they made about “no card, no hassle” — yet, annoying.
I stopped by the Hillside Target today to check out the school supplies and summer clearance. Now a smarter blogger would have done this a couple of days ago, since it was very picked over, but my whole week feels a day late and a dollar short. You got that too? lol… ANYway, the above cost me about $2.60 after gift card + cash back.
- Details on the Allegra deal here (bought for a friend whose daughter takes it).
- Details on the Girl Scout granola bars deal here.
- Barilla Pronto Pasta deal here.
- Zantac deal info here — but I used the $4.00 coupon in the 9/13 SS instead of the older printable.
- The silly tiny clearance pens were $.03 after the $.55/1 Paper Mate coupon in the 7/26 SS, and the clearance graph paper was a late addition to school-supplies-I-didn’t-realize-we-needed, so was happy with that find.
I already told you about the Annie’s mac & cheese deal with new coupon, but here are some more things I spotted.
Here are some clearance deals… Hillside today, but take a look at your store and see what you can spot.
- Threshold organic cotton twin XL sheet set, $14.98.
- Sara Lee snack cakes were still $2.50 at my store, so if you see them for $2.99 try a different Target if you have a choice near you.
- This cute school supplies case was $1.78.
- Post-Its, $.7o (down from… $0.00, lol).
- Kitchen-Aid stand mixer model KSM75WH, $124.98.
- Swanson cream starter, $1.37.
- Whole 4 lb Bare chicken, $7.99 with $4.00 off clearance sticker — they had several when I was there earlier.
- Room Essentials throw rugs, $4.98.
- 2 pack toss pillows, $9.98.
What have you found lately? I’m sure some of you were more on top of the summer clearance than I was!
